Heads Up: Owen Wilson’s Beheading In ‘The Haunting’ (1999)

Nothing gets the week started like a good beheading clip from a horror movie. Lucky for you, I’ve got a doozy this time!  Bonus points that it involves Owen Wilson for all of you Owen Wilson haters out there.

I think my favorite part of that clip from The Haunting is Liam Neeson’s reaction after Owen Wilson gets his head lopped off.  Kind of hard to upstage a decapitation, but Liam Neeson almost does it.  By the way – that carpet ride that Owen took before his grisly demise looked fun!  Minus getting tossed like a rag doll and then losing a noggin from a giant stone lion sculpture of course. If you haven’t seen this movie (which is a remake of the original and superior 1963 version), then you’re not missing much and I pretty much just showed you the best part.  Your welcome.

Heads Up: ‘Bookcase Death’ From ‘High Tension’ (2003)

Who loves a good horror movie decapitation?  I know…….we all do!  And because of that unified love for noggin knockers, I’m going to start doing a recurring feature called ‘Heads Up‘.  It’s a play on words.

The first poor bastard to be put under the beheading spotlight is Alex’s father from the 2003 French horror slasher, High Tension.  Now, I kind of feel bad for this guy.  He was just trying to get some sleep and somebody has to go ringing his damn door buzzer.  Gotta give our killer some originality points though for being aware of his surroundings and for being fond of wood.  I’m pretty sure it’s a first as far as ‘death by bookcases’ go.  Is it silly?  Yes.  Is it awesome?  Of course.  So click below and join in on the severed head festivities with me!
