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.

Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘Carmen’s Transformation’ From ‘Demons’ (1985)

If there was a Hall Of Fame for demon transformations, then Carmen from 1985’s Italian gore-galore classic Demons would have been inducted a looooong time ago.

So, on this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday it’s a must that I pay homage to Carmen’s transformation and I’m even going to throw in a spiffy throat ripping at the end as a bonus!   When it comes to my love for Demons, there are many highlights (samurai sword demon killing on a motorcycle, anybody?) but I have to tip my cap to the glorious practical effects on display in this particular scene courtesy of the great Sergio Stivaletti.  Watch and learn youngsters, and please enjoy that lovely demon tongue of Carmen’s as well……..

Sunday Bloody Sunday: Deaths From ‘Hatchet’ (2006)

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!

Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘Belial Gets Busy’ From ‘Basket Case’ (1982)

As far as Siamese twin horror movies go, Basket Case is on the top of the list.  It’s a short list that pretty much only contains Basket Case, but that’s nothing to sneeze at and is an accomplishment nonetheless.

So on this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday, it only feels right to give some shine to Belial, our favorite little monstrosity that lives in a wicker basket that his brother Duane carries around in the 1982 horror/comedy Basket Case.  Only problem is that from time to time, Belial likes to hop out of his basket and play.  His version of playing is carving you up with his fingernails and then tearing your insides out to round out the fun.  He’s quite a character!  Case in point – the clip below:

Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘Water Park Massacre’ From ‘Piranha’ (1978)

Woo hoo!  Summertime is here and what better way to beat the heat than by going to your local beach or water park to relax and unwind.  Maybe even go old school and get in an inner tube and float around the refreshing water.  Oh – what’s that nibbling at your toes?  Probably just some bloodthirsty piranha that want to eat you.  Nothing to worry about.

On this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday, I am going back to 1978 for director Joe Dante’s highly enjoyable Jaws parody about killer piranha fish aptly called: Piranha.  And one of the best scenes, that was ramped up to a great gory glorious spectacle in Alexandre Aja’s 2010 remake, is the water park scene where no one is safe.  Adults, kids, and even sand castles.  You know it’s bad news when sand castles are being destroyed amidst the chaos of flesh-chomping piranha.  Watch the clip below and enjoy!

Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘Holly’s Death’ From ‘The Descent’ (2005)

For a horror film to make me jump numerous times AND make me uneasy while watching it is a giant feat to say the least.  That’s what 2005’s claustrophobic cave dweller horror movie The Descent did for me.  I’ve been wanting to write more about this movie on my site, so what better way to kick it off than with a tense little scene where a hobbled female spelunker gets a nasty chunk bitten out of her neck.

On this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday as I previously stated, I’m showing some love to The Descent.  More specifically, the scene where Holly finally meets her demise (after suffering a gnarly broken leg) at the hands and teeth of a cave creature.  Watching this clip makes me want to re-watch the movie, especially since no matter how many times I watch it I still seem to jump at this scene when the creature appears.  Watch and enjoy!

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: ‘Tarantula Attack’ From ‘The Beyond’ (1981)

Is there a worse death more imaginable than having a herd of blood-thirsty tarantulas slowly…..and I mean VERY slowly…..tear you apart as you lay there paralyzed after falling off of a ladder?  Hardly not.  Unless of course we’re talking about being strapped to a chair and forced to listen to Taylor Swift until your eardrums explode and blood pours out of your head like a leaky faucet.

On that lovely note, welcome to this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday – where I’m spotlighting tarantulas.  More specifically, the incredibly slow moving tarantulas from Lucio Fulci’s classic Italian 1981 splatterfest, The Beyond.  Poor Martin falls from a ladder and is rendered immobile.  In come the fantastically awesome real (and fake) tarantulas to rip him to shreds.  Grab some popcorn and sit down for a while, because this unintentionally hilarious (but awesome) scene runs 4 minutes long.

Sunday Bloody Sunday ‘The Easter Edition’: Night Of The Lepus (1972)

What better way to celebrate Easter than with a cheesy 1972 horror movie about giant killer bunny rabbits?  Sigh – I know…..it’s such a shame that we don’t have a definitive horror movie based around Easter.  It would seem to be so easy considering all of the creepy old timey Easter Bunny pics that you can find on the internet.  But alas, all we really have is a flick about huge mutant rabbits.

Welcome to Sunday Bloody Sunday, where I’m going full on B-movie this week with the 1972 ridiculousness called Night Of The Lepus.  Someone was kind enough to string together some of the best scenes from it on Youtube, so please take a break from eating your marshmallow Peeps and watch it below. Fun fact btw:  This movie was rated PG.  Keep that in mind while you view the bloody bunny carnage in the clip.

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.
