Q:Regarding that "death by trombone"- are there any other horror films with exclusively unique kills?
Now this is going to be a fun one. However, I am going to have to exclude any and all kills from the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, due to the very nature of the films. I’m also going to have to disqualify most psychically-caused, animal-related, drug/alcohol-related, or toy-related kills as well (such things have been done to death. No pun intended).
The main criteria for judgement will be:
- Whether it has been done before (if there is a precedent).
- Whether it has been widely imitated since.
- Overall creativity.
- Sheer strangeness or humor.
So, in no particular order:
- Jason X (2001): Face frozen in liquid nitrogen, and smashed on a counter top.
- Dr. Giggles (1992): Suffocation by giant Band-aid.
- Killer Klowns from Outer Space (1988): Eaten by a shadow puppet.
- Sleepwalkers (1992): Stabbed by an ear of corn.
- Deadly Friend (1986): Decapitation by basketball.
- The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971): Head crushed by mechanical frog mask.
- Dial: Help (1988): Strangulation by telephone possessed by ghost operators. The phone of the film’s heroine later seduces her into taking a bath while wearing lingerie. I’m not kidding.
- The Wicker Man (1973): Immolation inside a giant, wicker mannequin.
- Gremlins (1984): Unscheduled stairlift launch.
- The Toxic Avenger: Part II (1989): Death by thrown starfish.
- Hausu (1977): Eaten by a piano.
- Graduation Day (1981): Impalement by a sword attached to a thrown football.
- Final Destination 3 (2006): Cooked alive inside a tanning bed.
- Death Bed: The Bed that Eats (1977): Digested by a demonic water bed.
- Grim Prairie Tales (1990): Swallowed whole by a carnivorous vagina.
There are many more out there, but to find/remember and list them all would take a lifetime, and this post is long enough as it is.
Reblogging because holy hell I need to watch some of these.
Veganism is not limiting. Meat-eaters think we only eat salads.Take away animal flesh and products, and the only other food you can think of is lettuce. Whose diet is limiting?
Been looking for a succinct way to phrase this.
Actually I can think of five different kind of beans, atleast 4 different mushrooms, another 4 grains, as well as various salad leaves, fruits, vegetables and berries. :) Being a meat eater doesn’t make us stupid. No more than being vegan does.
The absolute best kind! You’re probably asking yourself “Well why does this tattooed hooligan need money? It’s probably for drugs and alcohol…” WRONG! I’m going to do my best to make two different stories come together at the end and hopefully it makes sense and you say “This fine tattooed gent…
Okay, look. I know I don’t have a lot of followers. I know I haven’t updated in forever. This is beside the point. This needs to spread.
This guy, well, he can kind of be a shithead sometimes, but deep down he’s got some really good intentions, and what he’s trying to do right now is a fantastic thing.
The long and short of it is this:
He’s trying to get a house that was destroyed by its latest inhabitants who were/are severe animal abusers (still trying to get their worthless asses unable to have animals ever again). Not only does he need his own place to live, but he wants to revamp this property altogether to help his mom’s rescue. It’s a great way to turn a horrible event around.
If you can donate, please do. It means a lot to me, to him, to his mom and the animals they help. I can’t do it, and he certainly can’t do this on his own. Please help him.
I’m connoisseur of the non-car lifestyle. I moved from Florida to Boston when I was 22 via Amtrak. One of the main reasons I spent 24+ hours awake going up the eastern seaboard was the magic of the T in Beantown. If I couldn’t access it via an MBTA service, it probably wasn’t worth going to anywa…
Not saying she’s perfect, but she is a friend. I don’t have the money. Do for her what I fail at.

Goddamn idiots. By the way they started freaking out when the truck started moving, I’m assuming they aren’t that dedicated to their cause.
What in the everloving fuck am I even looking at? Like, I know this is an amalgamation of a face and a drippy piece of pepperoni pizza…but what?
Also, how about that SCROTUM shit with the Hobby Lobby bullshit agenda today?
Shit’s going down, yo.
