Have you heard the news? There’s some movie called IT coming out this week. Yeah, you probably haven’t read or seen much about it, but apparently it’s a reboot/remake of the 1990 mini-series of the same name and a potentially much more faithful adaptation of the Stephen King novel. Oh, I’m pulling your leg – you’d have to be living in a sewer to not know about this movie, since news of IT has been floating around everywhere.
So on this week’s Monday Bloody Monday, I felt it only right to go back to the original movie (which hasn’t aged well in spots unfortunately) and revisit one of my favorite scenes: Belch’s death. This scene always creeped me out as a kid, the way his body bends in half when he gets pulled in by the ‘deadlights’. Make sure to keep watching and check out Henry Bowers’ wicked white Elvis hairdo too. And make sure not to be a loser and go check out the new version of IT in theaters this week!
Al Pacino won Best Actor at the 1993 Academy Awards for his role in Scent Of A Woman, but there was some terrible injustice going on while he was graciously accepting his award. And that injustice is that Clint Howard was NOT nominated for his breathtaking and groundbreaking role in Ticks. For those in the dark here, Ticks is a horror movie about giant killer ticks. It definitely delivers what it promises in the title.
Welcome to Monday Bloody Monday where I am indeed going to give Mr. Clint Howard the shine that he deserves from his role as Jarvis Tanner in Ticks. Behold greatness and watch as Clint tells the daughter of Micky Dolenz from The Monkees that he’s infested. Then brace yourself for acting impact while his head explodes over her. After watching, feel free to contact the Academy with a barrage of emails voicing your displeasure over this HUGE oversight. We should all be very ticked off about this. Puns!
Dildos! Anal beads! Chainsaws! If that doesn’t get your attention, then I don’t know what the hell will. But enough about my personal life, let’s also talk about the movie Deathgasm and why it’s one of the best horror movies in years. And yeah, it has some dildos in it that are used as weapons against some demons too.
Welcome to Monday Bloody Monday where I am indeed showcasing the scene in Deathgasm where our heroes Zakk and Brodie take on some nasty demons with some rather large dildos, followed promptly by a rather large chainsaw. Guarantee you haven’t really seen anything like this – so be forewarned before clicking ‘Play’ below. And don’t watch it at work. Most companies have a ‘no dildo‘ policy.
Yeah, I know I’m technically about 2 years late on posting this death scene up and I have a very good explanation for it! I’m extremely lazy. Just kidding. Kind of. But yes, I was sitting here today and reminiscing about the best ‘revolving door death scene’ ever and I felt the need to resurrect it.
Sooooooo, on this edition of Monday Bloody Monday – I am revisiting the sad demise of Noah on The Walking Dead in Season 5. And not only sad, but maybe one of the most (if not the most) brutal death scenes in the show’s history. Greg Nicotero and his crew outdid themselves here, and did their job as far as making Tom Savini proud. Oh yeah I should have mentioned at the beginning that this is a big spoiler alert. Noah dies. And here it is in all of it’s gory glory!
There’s nothing worse than being the redheaded stepchild of the 80’s slasher genre. Oh sure, you may have gotten picked up once or twice in the video store – but it may have always been a mercy fuck because Friday The 13th or Halloween wasn’t in stock.
Well – on this week’s Monday Bloody Monday, I’m giving some love to one of my favorite 80’s slasher stepchildren: The Mutilator. Now you may also know it by it’s other name Fall Break, but to me it will always be The Mutilator. Recently released on snazzy Blu-ray, I sat down and watched it again the other night and what a treat it was! Everything that an 80’s slasher should have: Bad acting, bad music, and great gore. Speaking of that gore, that’s why I’m here in this post today. Watch the clip below for all of the death scenes and obviously there are spoilers abound if you haven’t seen the movie. And if you haven’t – do yourself a favor and watch The Mutilator. Bet you won’t be able to get the theme song out of your head too.
Nothing gets me going more than some gorgeous gore in a horror movie. And I guess that ‘gorgeous’ could definitely be a word used to describe Nicolas Winding Refn’s odd little movie The Neon Demon. The women are gorgeous. The style of the film is gorgeous. And the scene where a model vomits up an eyeball is…..you guessed it – gorgeous!
Welcome to Monday Bloody Monday, where I must warn you that the following clip has spoilers galore if you haven’t seen The Neon Demon. Not that it would really matter much, since even if you have seen the movie you probably don’t know what the hell is going on anyway. I dug this movie more than I thought I would though. Some will call it artsy crap. Others will praise the ambition of it. The clip below of the ending pretty much sums up The Neon Demon at it’s best, and might make you rethink ever wanting to eat an eyeball.
Sometimes you have to go back to the classics. And for me, one of my personal horror classics is the original Dawn Of The Dead. Forget all of the social commentary though, let’s talk zombie death scenes!
On this edition of Monday Bloody Monday, I want to take a minute to bow our heads (slight pun there) to remember one of my favorite zombies from Dawn Of The Dead: The abandoned hangar zombie. He wasn’t with us very long, but what a memorable time he gave us while he was here. If you needed proof that zombies aren’t too smart after they’re resurrected, look no further than this poor bastard walking literally into his own death. At least that death was swift and quick by the hands of some merciless helicopter propellor blades. As a bonus in the clip, you get to watch Peter (Ken Foree) mow down some zombie kids with a machine gun to some rather hilarious music!
While being bored on a Friday night recently, I discovered the 1987 horror/comedy slasher Slaughterhouse. It’s a charming little story about a father and son who own a, you guessed it…..slaughterhouse! They’re in danger of losing it to some big shots in town, so of course they decide to kill everyone to get even. Hilarity (both intentional and not) ensues, and I have to say that it was actually a refreshing watch.
Sooooooo, welcome to Monday Bloody Monday where I’m going to highlight a scene from the movie where Buddy Bacon (of course that’s his name) and his dimwitted son Lester take justice into their own hands and into their own meat grinder. Gotta love Buddy’s facial expressions during this scene. God bless 80’s horror and god bless Slaughterhouse! Oh – I almost forgot! I’m going to include a special PSA from the movie that warns you about smoking in the movie theater. Because that apparently happened in the 80’s. Enjoy!
I must apologize in advance for not having the superb ‘dildo scene’ from Deathgasm for you to view. And if you don’t know what I’m talking out, I’m sure some of you are googling ‘dildo scene Deathgasm‘ and most likely getting in trouble if you’re doing that at work. But instead of dildos, I have brought you dual-wielding chainsaws!
Welcome to Monday Bloody Monday where I am indeed diving into one of my favorite horror movies in the last few years: Deathgasm! So many good scenes in this one (yes, the ‘dildo scene’ being one of them), but I did ‘eeny meeny, miny, moe’ and picked the chainsaw scene where Zakk uses not one, but two chainsaws to take down some demon zombies. Enjoy below and I’ll keep everyone posted on the possibility of Deathgasm dildos in the future….
One of my biggest fears, besides eating mayonnaise, is my fear of needles. Want to see me turn white as a ghost – then show me a movie that shows a needle going into someone’s arm. Yeah, I’m a big sissy when it comes to needles, which is why it’s not a surprise that I barely made it through watching Amanda (Shawnee Smith) get shoved into that pile of syringes in Saw II.
Welcome to Monday Bloody Monday, where I am shoving you into the Youtube clip of that very scene. Say what you want to about the Saw franchise (it’s just torture porn, blah blah blah), some of the traps were very effective and well done. And sure, tossing a former drug addict into a pit of dirty needles is a bit sadistic, but when you watch a Saw movie you’re obviously looking for something sadistic. We all have a little Jigsaw in us after all, don’t we? Check out the clip below and I’ll be in the other room while you’re watching.
