Monday Movie Meme- Death Scenes!


Feature Presentation...
MONDAY MOVIE MEME

Hosted by The Bumbles

This week's movie topic is all about Death Scenes...

WARNING: These movie recommendations contain spoilers so view and participate at your own risk!

1. From Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992): the vampire Amilyn played by Paul Reubens gets staked like halfway through the movie and is still dying at the end of the movie! It's hilarious...He's at the end of the stairs and with the stake in his heart and groaning with ugghs and ooohs!

2. From The Haunting (1999): Luke Sanderson played by Owen Wilson gets his head taken off by the chimney sweep thingy....I was sooo rooting for him to make it and then boom, nope he's beheaded!

3. From Return of the King (2003): When Eowyn battles with the king of the Nazgul and he says that "No man can kill me." And then she says "I'm no man!" And stabs him through his face helmet! Leave it to a linguist like Tolkien to use these play on words! He dies! It's great.

4. From The Boy in the Striped Pajamas (2008): When two little boys one German and the other Jewish befriend each other without knowing what really is going on in the world...they both end up getting gassed in the chamber since the German boy decided to hop the fence and join his friend in his striped pajamas for the day to find his friend's father....just happens to be the day the Germans are executing all in the camp...it's heart-wrenching, horrible, chilling, and has stayed with me for several weeks and I bawled like a baby for hours...

  1. Oh, God, I read The Boy in the Striped Pajamas! It was so sad. Usually I'd say the death scenes are the best part, but that was just too much. It really brought it home, though.
    My favorite death scene was from Harry Potter and Goblet of Fire when Harry brought Cedric's body back. The bestest. And it was good in both written and and live action form!

  2. Ooooo - good choice from the LOTR series! That was awesome.

    I didn't know Owen Wilson was in a horror movie? What's wrong with me?!

    For some reason that scene in Scream just popped in my head - when that one girl gets killed by or put in the garage door I think it was? Haven't seen that one in a while - that was a goodie.

  6. Gory death scenes never do a thing for me but if there's a long, drawn out illness resulting in death, I'm totally bawling!

  7. Aww man I read the book and watched the movie for The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. The death scene *sigh* was really hard to read and to watch the scenes leading up to it in the movie. It was heartbreaking and I cried. Even when i think about this I get sad.
