    Mr Dedo,

    Sorry if noting that I didn't have the name correctly didn't suffice. Did I spell Meredith Hunter's name right? You know him right? I, uh, took a stab at that one.
    YHS, etc

    Certainly not the most dramatic, but I find this one to be equally gruesome and well done.

    Zombi 2 (Zombies) directed by Luciano Fulci:

    When the doctor's wife gets splintered in the eye.

    Never, ever forget that one.

    And to throw one out:

    I Spit on Your Grave: The bath tub scene. OUCH!

    One I can't believe no one has mentioned: David Warner getting decapitated by a pane of glass in the original "The Omen". Also, in the I-can't-believe-it-happened division, Kevin Spacey getting shot in "L.A. Confidential".

    Can't believe I forgot this one:

    Friday the 13th: New Blood (Part 7) I think

    When Jason whacks a camper enclosed in a sleeping bag repeatedly against a tree. Wow!

    I'm going to get every detail of this wrong, but there was a scene, I believe, in a Burt Reynolds flick called Sharky's Machine, where the bad guy falls backward off a balcony. And as he does, he unloads his gun up at Burt, all slow-motion and no CGI bullshit, which was cool as hell.

    I saw a "making of" and the stuntman squeezed off the shots without warning, because, in his words, he thought the guy was bad enough to have done exactly that... Trying to take the hero with him.

    Not to be confused with C.P.O. Sharkey, the 70s sitcom with Don Rickles. As far as I know, no one died in that show. Although that Don Rickles was a hoot.

    Not reading 5 pages of this, but hands the winner has to be from the Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie when Buffy kills the one armed vampire near the end of the movie. Fucking hilarious. It is a classic.

    Michael Corleone's death was perfect. Sitting outside his villa in Sicily, alone and he just expires. Perfect.

    I'd pick any of those disgusting deaths in Saw. I almost puked watching most of them.

    Also, I believe that scene where Jason slams the guy in the sleeping bag against the tree was No. 5 for some reason, but also a good one.

    Wasn't 5. Five was the ungodly attempt to give the series a different feel (IE NO Jason, only a copy-cat). Kind of like Halloween III: Season of the Witch. No Michael Myers, just death-dealing masks and commercials.
  12. Dar Robinson. Later died while doing a motorcyle stunt. No joke intended.
