The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #1 – A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET (1984)

This is it....the moment we've all been waiting for! The cream of the scream! The (dream) master of disaster! The baron of burn! My 100th post on this blog and the culmination of a months long project all coincide for one momentous occasion. I hope you're all wearing your fedoras, razor gloves, and Christmas sweaters, … Continue reading The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #1 – A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET (1984)

The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #2 – THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE (1974) – Plus a bonus kill!

On Monday I promised you two kills for my penultimate post on this list and, dammit, you're getting two kills! But first, I have to admit something: this is becoming increasingly bittersweet. On the one hand I'm thrilled and excited to write about these entries at the top of the list; scenes that have awed … Continue reading The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #2 – THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE (1974) – Plus a bonus kill!

The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #3 – HELLRAISER (1987)

Guys, I fucked up. Today I was writing this post and I inadvertently referenced a film that COMPLETELY SLIPPED MY FREAKING MIND! Dear God, you all deserve better than this. To make up for it, I'll be doing a #2A and #2B on Thursday. Thankfully, the scene I forgot was one I intended to rank … Continue reading The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #3 – HELLRAISER (1987)

The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #4 – THE THING (1982)

Now that we're down to the final four, things are getting tough. I've oscillated between two scenes for this spot for the better part of two weeks, and I'm sure once I hit "publish" I'll second-guess myself once again. But we're in the final weeks here and no pick is a bad pick. So, without … Continue reading The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #4 – THE THING (1982)

The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #5 – ZOMBIE (1979)

We've entered the Top 5! Repeat! Top 5, I am inside you! Whoops, didn't mean it that way (or did I? *ha-wink*) On an editorial side note, it occurred to me right around entry #10 that this countdown will conclude with my 100th post on this blog, which is totally cool and totally unplanned. It's … Continue reading The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #5 – ZOMBIE (1979)

The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #6 – PSYCHO (1960)

We're on the literal cusp of the top 5, ladies and gentlemen, and I have to say this has been pretty fun. Going into this project I basically knew which kills were going to be solidified in my top 5, but everything else was a crap-shoot. I made some additions I wasn't expecting, and I … Continue reading The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #6 – PSYCHO (1960)

The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #7 – SINISTER (2012)

Here I go again, breaking my own rules. Just as I did with Friday the 13th, I'm choosing two kills for this entry. However, this go-round the decision was not made based on the volume of films or kills, but rather on the style of the kill and the effectiveness of the scares they create. … Continue reading The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #7 – SINISTER (2012)

The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #9 – IT (2017)

Remember when I promised you more intense kills in the top 10, but I reneged on that promise almost immediately? Well, now we've arrived. #9 on the list comes to us from the twisted mind of author Stephen King, director Andy Muschietti and a demented, dancing clown in the most recent adaptation of IT. Baggage … Continue reading The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #9 – IT (2017)

The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #10 – DAWN OF THE DEAD (1978)

We made it to the Top 10! It's been a fun little journey so far, and I'm excited to get down to my favorite kills the genre has to offer. In the last post I promised the intensity was going to ramp up, but I've come before you today to say this: I may disappoint … Continue reading The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #10 – DAWN OF THE DEAD (1978)

The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #11 – SUSPIRIA (1977)

Can you feel it? I can feel it. We're almost to the top 10! From here on out this is serious business. Many of the scenes I've covered so far have been fun or cool set-pieces, or have been contextually interesting, but the remainder are going to be more intense, and today's scene is exactly … Continue reading The Best Horror Movie Kills of All-Time: #11 – SUSPIRIA (1977)
