Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘Head Explosion’ From ‘The Prowler’ (1981)

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I figured I’d get the romance started with an exploding head from the 1981 splatterific slasher movie The Prowler.  Flowers and chocolates are pretty much overrated anyway, so exploding heads are the way to go nowadays.

Welcome to Sunday Bloody Sunday, where as I’ve already mentioned – I’m shining a spotlight onto an exploding head from The Prowler.  But who’s exploding head is it?  Well…..therein lies the rub.  It’s a scene from the end of the movie, so if you haven’t seen it – then this would be considered a big spoiler.  That being because the exploding head is that of the revealed killer!  Dun Dun Duhhhhhh.  Yeah, it’s kind of like a super graphic Scooby-Doo ending.  But anyway, click away below and you’re been warned if you haven’t seen the movie!  P.S. – Kudos to Tom Savini for the FX work.

Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘The Broken Leg’ From ‘The Descent’ (2005)

Luckily in my life, the only thing I’ve ever broken was my pinky toe on my right foot.  Painful?  Yes.  But I obviously didn’t need a cast and didn’t need any bones set back into place.  I did scream like a maniac though to get a little sympathy, so I’m guilty there.  I’ve seen clips of basketball players fall and have their bone come shooting out of their leg and that makes me squeamish – but surprisingly, Holly’s protruding leg bone in the 2005 movie The Descent made me even more squeamish, and that was fake!  At least I hope it was.  I should listen to the commentary track to make sure.

Welcome to Sunday Bloody Sunday, and as I stated right up there in that paragraph – this week we’re talking about one of my favorite horror movies in the last 20 years called The Descent, written and directed by Neil Marshall.  More specifically, about the scene where our saucy spelunker Holly falls down a hole in the cave and breaks her leg.  Oh it’s a nasty one.  And the only way to get Holly mobile is to set the bone back in place into the leg.  Get ready to squirm in your seat if you haven’t seen this – and if you have seen it, I’m guessing you’ll be doing some squirming too.

Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘Viago’s Date’ From ‘What We Do In The Shadows’ (2015)

My only regret regarding last years hilarious horror mockumentary What We Do In The Shadows was that it took me so long to see it.  It pretty much shit on most of the crop of horror movies that came out in 2015 as far as being original and entertaining….AND it stayed true to it’s horror roots in the process.

So on this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday, I figured why not give What We Do In The Shadows a little love?  It deserves it, and one of my favorite scenes is when Viago shows us how he likes to spend an evening with a lovely young lady while on a date.  A lot of blood and comedy ensues, so if you need a starter course as to why you should watch this movie – click the link below and enjoy!

Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘Shovel Face’ From ‘My Bloody Valentine 3D’ (2009)

Ahhhhh, it’s Valentine’s Day.  That fake holiday where guys are supposed to be scared into buying flowers and candy.  Oh – those were my inside thoughts talking.  Sorry.  I mean it’s a lovely day where you spend a joyous experience with the one you love and care about so much!  Now let’s talk about a girl getting her head sliced in half by a shovel.

Welcome to Sunday Bloody Sunday – the special Valentine’s Day edition!  And nothing says horror and Valentine’s Day like My Bloody Valentine.  Yes, the original 1981 version is an underground slasher classic in my book, but I’m spotlighting a scene from the ambitious and pretty entertaining 2009 remake.  Brandi didn’t last long in the movie, but she did have a great death scene involving a shovel shoved into her face.  Peep the clip below and enjoy your Valentine’s Day, lovers!

Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘Jonah And His Severed Limbs’ From ‘The Green Inferno’ (2015)

Alright!  It’s Super Bowl Sunday!  And I’m sure what’s on your mind more than if Peyton Manning is going to defy ‘old man odds’ and win, is what you’re going to eat for the big game.  Nachos perhaps?  Maybe some delicious ribs?  Or if you’re involved in a cannibalistic tribe, maybe you’ll have more of a human arm and leg kind of craving?

Welcome to Sunday Bloody Sunday, and this week I decided to give Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno a little more shine.  I was maybe a tad too harsh on it in my review last year, but one thing is for sure and that’s the fact that Jonah’s death scene is pure ridiculous gory goodness.  Am I a bit sick for laughing more at this though than being grossed out by it?  It’s over-the-top, especially if you don’t like seeing people’s tongues and eyeballs get cut out.  Make sure and watch the clip later after you’ve eaten and after the Panthers are celebrating their championship.  Yeah, that’s my bold prediction there.  **UPDATE: MY PREDICTION SUCKED**  Bon Appetit!

Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘Finger Face’ From ‘Dead Alive’ (1992)

Aside from having a fear of mayonnaise, I also have a striking fear of having somebody shove their fingers literally into my face.  A strange fear, I know, but that’s why this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday is all the more personal to me.

If you’ve never seen Peter Jackson’s bloody brilliant Dead Alive (aka Braindead), then you shouldn’t be reading any horror sites anymore.  Your privileges have been revoked.  But if you’re like me and have seen a couple hundred times, then maybe one of your favorite scenes is when the nurse gets a face full of Mum’s fingers.  Watch below and enjoy the deadly digit demise.  Try saying that 5 times fast.

Sunday Bloody Sunday: Death Scenes From ‘Madman’ (1982)

It can’t be argued too much that Madman Marz is the red-headed stepchild horror villain from 80’s slasher movies.  Some of you may be reading this and not even know who Madman Marz is.  For shame!  Because in my opinion, the 1982 extra cheesy slasher film Madman defined what 80’s horror movies were all about back then, and deserves more recognition.

So, on this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday I’m giving it some of that recognition!  Oh, I could go on and on about the amazingly bad hot tub scene that’s in the movie (of which you can see HERE), but I would much rather focus on the death scenes.  Did I also mention that Madman has some of the BEST sound effects and music ever?  Gaze upon the carnage below to hear for yourself, and look out for my favorite at #9 in the clip.  How the Academy overlooked her performance at the Oscars that year is a travesty.

Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘Paul Gets Gutted’ From ‘Candyman – Farewell To The Flesh’ (1995)

Somewhere, Candyman is sulking…..possibly even drowning his sorrows in a delicious bottle of Mad Dog 20/20 as he reminisces about the good ol’ days when he actually could have had a successful horror movie franchise.  He was a great character.  He had a menacing deep (but oh so soothing) voice.  He also had a pretty great backstory.  And then in 1999, Candyman 3: Day Of The Dead happened and he disappeared like a fart in the wind.  But let’s not dwell on the bad times, let’s focus on the good times we had with Candyman!

On this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday, we’re going back to my high school graduation year of 1995 for a little Candyman: Farewell To The Flesh action.  Now overall, I sort of dug this sequel and it had a few pretty memorable scenes.  One of them being when Candyman wants to party with Annie in her home and her husband Paul decides he wants in on the fun too!  Only problem is that when Candyman parties, he likes to gut people.  Sorry, Paul.

Monday Bloody Monday: ‘Thumb To The Forehead’ From ‘Halloween 4: The Return Of Michael Myers’ (1988)

Who needs a machete when you have a big thumb?  Yeah – I’m looking at you Jason Voorhees.  Put the machete down and try using your thumbs like a real man.  Michael Myers is a real man, and has crazy thumb skills to further prove that realness.

Due to a long weekend, welcome to Monday Bloody Monday instead of Sunday Bloody Sunday!  And since Halloween is only a few weeks away, it seems right to spotlight something from the Halloween franchise.  Being that I have thumbs on my mind for some reason, it’s only natural to witness Michael Myers give new definition to the term ‘hands-on’ at the beginning of Halloween 4: The Return Of Michael Myers.  Try thinking about what it would feel like to literally have that big thumb pushing into your forehead when you watch the clip.  And then go get some Advil afterwards.

Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘Penis Toss’ From ‘Street Trash’ (1987)

**WARNING – THE FOLLOWING POST CONTAINS A CLIP WITH NUMEROUS SEVERED PENIS SHOTS AND BAD ACTING**

Severed penises are never a laughing matter and continue to plague men across the world every year.  One of the most famous cases of this terrible occurrence happened in 1987 somewhere in a remote junk yard where a homeless man was just trying to take a leak when he suddenly had his manhood literally taken from him.  And after it was taken, it was tossed around like a football and to add insult to the injury, it was accompanied by goofy music.  Luckily we have video proof of this, but please be warned that it’s not for the squeamish:

So why did the severed penis miraculously change colors, mostly between grey and yellow, while it was being tossed to and fro?  I’m no doctor, but that doesn’t seem like a healthy severed penis.  And it was pretty remarkable that the victim wasn’t bleeding out after the initial cutting.  Yes, the infamous dick toss scene from 1987’s Street Trash made a rare appearance on Sunday Bloody Sunday and the world is a better place because of it.  Guard your jewels fellas, or you too could be a spectator at your very own penis tossing extravaganza.
