Table saws can be fun! Especially when you’re building something. Otherwise, I guess they’re not really that fun and kind of pointless. Now – in horror movies, it’s always nice when we can find new and interesting ways to watch a character meet their bloody demise. And yep – you guessed it! We’re talking about a ‘table saw kill’ this week on Monday Bloody Monday.
Raise your hand if you were a fan of the big French Horror boom of the 2000’s. That’s a lot of hands! Count me in on that, and one of the films that doesn’t quite get the love it should is Frontier(s). Did it fall into the dreaded ‘torture porn’ category? Perhaps. But it also has one of the best death scenes in recent memory, and yes I will pay off the beginning paragraph of this post and say that it does involve a table saw. By the way, one other side note before you watch the clip: Do not EVER call a woman a dirty slut.
What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than by watching the death scenes from Adam Green’s 2006 splatter opus Hatchet?
Yes, on this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday I’m going all Victor Crowley on your ass with his personal highlight reel from the ‘ode to old school horror’ movie, Hatchet. You have to just step back and appreciate and respect the sheer brutality and practical effect goodness of this one and realize that when Hatchet was released, it was a breath of fresh horror air. The sequels weren’t quite up to par for me, but overall Victor Crowley was and is a great addition to the horror villain family. Now click play below and enjoy the messy madness!
You’re one sick sonofabitch Clive Barker. I mean that in the most endearing and complimentary way possible of course. Welcome to another Sunday Bloody Sunday where I like to spotlight some of the sickest, bloodiest, and most enjoyable death scenes from the days of horror past. And this week, I decided to give Hellbound: Hellraiser II a little love, specifically the pinnacle moment where Julia is revived with some poor bastard’s blood on a mattress.
Truth be told, this scene freaked me the fuck out when I was younger. Not sure what I was watching a movie like this for when I was 12, but that’s a different dysfunctional story. See, I have a thing about maggots. I don’t like them. And when the mental patient here in this scene thought he had maggots crawling in and out of his skin, I seriously almost had to turn the movie off. The unrated version in the clip below is even more graphic, as he slices his skin to and fro with the scalpel provided by the evil Dr. Channard. Click the vid below to get a better visual and watch the resurrection of the lovely, and in this case skinless, Julia. Now with more maggots!
