Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘Boxing Decapitation’ From ‘Friday The 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan’ (1989)

I’m sure when you were watching the big Mayweather/Pacquiao fight last night, you were rooting for one of them to literally punch the other’s head off.  A bit sadistic, yes – but wouldn’t it have made it more exciting and entertaining?  But alas, that only happens in movies.  More specifically, in Friday The 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan.

Welcome to this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday – and since everyone has been in a big boxing mood lately, I figured I’d return to one of the best on-screen deaths (in one of the worst sequels in the franchise) at the hands of Jason Voorhees.  Yes, young boxing prodigy Julius is about to find out why you don’t spar with the big guy in the hockey mask.  Take it away, Jason!

Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘Death By 2 X 4’ From ‘The Stepfather’ (1987)

Move over Hacksaw Jim Duggan – you’re not the only one that knows how to swing a big piece of wood.  That didn’t quite sound right, but whatever.  Henry Morrison a.k.a. Jerry Blake a.k.a. The Stepfather sure loves swinging the ol’ 2 X 4, especially over a guy’s head!

On this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday, I’m going back to 1987 where actor Terry O’Quinn played in my opinion, one of the best horror movie psychopaths ever.  And in this particular scene, his character of Jerry Blake doesn’t take too kindly to people snooping around in his business.  He has a very strict ‘No Snooping’ policy, and in this instance it involves slapping some lumber repeatedly over a nosy doctor’s head.  Enjoy the pummeling below, and if you haven’t seen this underrated gem, do yourself a favor and seek it out.

Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘Joey Lawrence Double Head-Shot’ From ‘Rest Stop: Dead Ahead’ (2006)

What better way to start off 2015 than with a clip of Blossom actor Joey Lawrence in a horror movie?  How about a clip of Joey Lawrence getting shot in the head not once, but twice?  I had you at shot in the head twice, didn’t I…..

Even though I’ve posted about this spectacular death scene a couple of years ago, I feel like it’s been sitting on the shelf long enough that I can take it down and play with it again on Sunday Bloody Sunday.  And this will be a big treat for all of my Rest Stop: Dead Ahead fans out there!  All four of you.  I won’t spoil much about this clip if you haven’t seen it, but please do yourself a favor and click below to get some instant fulfillment.  Just be warned – Joey Lawrence plays a cop in this movie.  That’s almost as believable as him getting shot in the head and surviving.  Enjoy!

Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘Death By Trombone’ From ‘The Town That Dreaded Sundown’ (1976)

If there’s one thing I say about horror movies nowadays, it’s that there just aren’t enough deaths by brass musical instruments.  In 1976, not only was the world graced with my presence when I was born, but there was a ‘death by trombone’ scene in the movie The Town That Dreaded Sundown.

So, on this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday, I think it’s only fitting that we spotlight that trombone death scene from 1976.  It’s also very fitting because the remake/reboot/sequel of The Town That Dreaded Sundown was just released as well.  Without spoiling too much, the trombone makes a triumphant return in that one in case you’re wondering.  Ok, Phantom Killer – now take it away and show Peggy how to really play that instrument!

Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘Death By Bees On The Toilet’ From ‘Sleepaway Camp’ (1983)

What’s worse than being on the shitter and finding out that you don’t have any toilet paper?  Being on the shitter and having a homicidal woman with a penis unleash a bunch of angry bees upon you.

Welcome to this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday where I’m putting 1983’s loveable slasher flick Sleepaway Camp in the spotlight.  More specifically, the scene where our sneaky transgendered killer disrupts Billy’s private time on the toilet with a swarm of bees.  Let’s just say that if poor Billy was having a nasty bout of constipation, that was quickly about to be the least of his worries.

Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘Bisection Death’ From ‘Thirteen Ghosts’ (2001)


If you are offended by large, fake ghost boobs – then I suggest you stop reading now.  Because if you keep reading and then click the link that’s below, you will see some large, fake ghost boobs. 

Welcome to Sunday Bloody Sunday!  I’ve been away for a minute, and wanted to jump right back into things with one of my favorite death scenes from 2001’s stupid but enjoyable, Thir13en Ghosts.  Or as some would call it, 13 Ghosts.  Better still, how about Thirteen Ghosts?  Whichever way you want to spell it, it’s the definition of a fun horror movie with the ghosts definitely being the highlight.

The scene I’m spotlighting here is where our fearless lawyer Ben Moss (JR Bourne) unleashes the ghosts when he picks up a valise of money.  It’s at this point that we get our first look at the naked female ghost with large boobs that you were warned about earlier in the post.  As for poor Ben, well – at least he got to look at a pair of breasts before meeting his entertaining demise.

On Second Thought: Killing Someone With An Ear Of Corn Is Pretty Amazing

If you had to kill someone, how would you do it?  I know – that’s a heavy question for a Thursday.  But if your answer includes corn on the cob, then you’re either a hardcore vegetarian or you’ve been daydreaming about 1992’s killer human cat movie, Sleepwalkers.

I’ve spoken about this particular scene before, but it’s so random and so strange that it needs to be spoken about again.  Sleepwalkers I suppose, would be the definition of a ‘guilty pleasure’.  It has a preposterous plot, some cheesy morphing effects, and an eyebrow-raising incestuous relationship between mother and son (Mary and Charles Brady).  Only one thing could upstage incest though, and that’s a death scene that involves a delicious ear of corn.

As far as snappy one-liners go, it doesn’t get much better than “No vegetables, no dessert!“.  What the hell is up with the music though?  A bit too orchestral for a horror movie if you ask me, but then again we’re talking about a movie here where vegetables are being used as killing tools.  Pushing all of the bad shit aside from Sleepwalkers (and trust me there is plenty), this corn cob scene forgives most of it and almost single-handedly pushes the movie into cult horror status.  Not only that, but it reminds me of when I would eat corn on the cob as a child and act like I was a typewriter, munching back and forth and even making the appropriate sound effects.  Please disregard that last sentence.


Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘The Death Of Moochie’ From John Carpenter’s ‘Christine’ (1983)

We need more people named Moochie in horror movies.  I know that’s a random pleading, but my mind is pretty much always set on random.  In 1983, we were granted a Moochie in the John Carpenter movie version of Stephen King’s killer car novel, Christine, and he gets his shine on this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday.

It’s always entertaining when chubby people people in horror movies try and run away from the killer.  In this case, the killer runs on regular unleaded and ends up backing our portly friend here up against a wall.  Now, had Moochie lost a couple of pounds, he may have been able to just jump up on top of Christine and break away to his freedom.  But alas, he didn’t lose those pounds and has a switchblade as his only defense.  Needless to say, it doesn’t end well for the chunky Moochie, so watch the clip below to see his unfortunate demise.

Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘The Car Scene’ From ‘The Blob’ (1988)

Have you been thinking about taking that special girl to that secluded, “romantic” spot in the woods to put the moves on her?  Well, you might think twice after watching this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday clip.

One of my favorite horror remakes of all time is 1988’s, The Blob.  It pretty much got everything right, capturing the cheesiness of the 1958 original and adding a Kevin Dillon mullet and his sweet motorbike moves in for good measure.  One of my favorite scenes is below, when a guy just wants to get a little car action from his date while parking in the woods:

Well, that was a bit date rapey, so I can’t condone that.  Good news is that he got what he deserved.  He did have a pretty sweet bar in the back of his trunk though.  But yes, this scene is just one of many in The Blob that gets a thumbs up from me.  Only solidifying why it’s one of the best horror remakes ever!  Right, Kevin Dillon and your mullet?
