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.

Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘The Decapitation’ From ‘The Omen’ (1976)

I’ve had The Omen on my mind a lot lately.  Maybe it’s because Mondo is releasing the remastered soundtrack on vinyl this Tuesday.  Or maybe it’s because I was born the same year that the original was released in theaters.  Better still, maybe it’s because I’m the Antichrist.  I’ll let you mull over that last one while I tell you that I’m very excited to showcase one of the most enjoyable decapitation scenes in horror movie history on this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday.

A challenge like gathering the seven mythical daggers that you need to kill the son of Satan can be a daunting task.  Just ask professional photographer, Keith Jennings.  Better yet, why not watch below what happens to Mr. Jennings.  Apparently his head was really fake by the way.  Who knew?

Fitting that it’s Oscar Sunday by the way since Gregory Peck just gave an Oscar-worthy reaction to that awesome beheading.
