If you read the title of the post, I already know that a lot of you are thinking that I’m about to show you the sleeping bag death scene from Friday The 13th Part VII: The New Blood. Yes it’s pretty iconic, but I’m here to tell you that it’s NOT the best sleeping bag death scene ever. I’ll prepare myself now to duck at whatever you’re going to throw at me.
Ok, now that you’re done hurling insults and objects at me – let’s get on with it and see if I can back up my statement. In 1979, a somewhat little known creature feature called Prophecy was released. Directed by John Frankenheimer and starring Talia Shire (Rocky), this movie is about a giant mutated bear-type thing that kills people in the forest. And boy oh boy….it doesn’t discriminate! Watch what the mutated killing machine does to this poor kid trying to hop away in his zipped up sleeping bag. Apparently the sleeping bag isn’t the only thing made of feathers.
