The Blog Lagoon’s 31 Days of Halloween – Day 12: Great Moments in Gore Part 1

"Choke on 'em!"

"Choke on 'em!"

Here’s a YouTube collection of some of my favorite gore scenes from some of my favorite horror movies. Some are fairly tame…some are not for the faint of heart. You’ve been warned. Want to cut to the chase? For the longer clips, jump to the time code in parentheses for the money shot.

Nightmare on Elm St. 3: The Dream Warriors
One of the first scenes I remember really grossing me out as a kid was this amazing kill from Chuck Russell’s Dream Warriors where Freddy turns an amateur Geppetto into a human, marionette. (:50)

The Blob (remake)
Another Chuck Russell gross-out. Considering they set you up to think this character was going to be the hero, it amped up the shock value of his death. (1:10)

Halloween III: Season of the Witch
A great Halloween gore scene, and one of the tamest ones listed here. Careful kids, this is what happens if you sit too close to the TV. (:51)

Night of the Living Dead

What’s almost as disturbing as infanticide? Matricide! Even more disturbing than that? Matrivorism! (ie. “eating your Mom”…which happens offscreen, but start the clip from the beginning and you can see little Karen munching away at Daddy’s arm. Nom-nom-nom!) I met this little girl at Cleveland’s Cinema Wasteland and she evidently grew up to be a fairly well-adjusted adult.

No guts, no gory. Here’s a diabolical trifecta of great guts-hitting-the-ground kills from Slither, Day of the Dead, and (the otherwise contemptable) Ghost Ship.

Slither (starts immediately)

Day of the Dead (1:46)

Ghost Ship (3:10)

That’s enough to ruin tonight’s dinner. Stay tuned for part 2 tomorrow.
