The Best Death Scene In Movie History

The Best Death Scene In Movie History (aka The Most Absurd Death Scene In Movie History)…

Corey Haim – Lost Boy

It was the summer of 1987, and I was truanting school with a friend and two girls, one of whom I was smitten with. We made our way to the local cinema and saw The Lost Boys. By the time it was over, I had forgotten the girl and was totally enamoured with the film. I probably didn’t shut up about it all the way home. It was the first of many viewings, and the catalyst for many nights of teenage fantasy, discussing how cool it would be to be a vampire, or one of the Frog Brothers, or Corey Haim….

Slap Shot (1977)

The Charlestown Chiefs are a two-bit minor league hockey team on the verge of collapse. When the team enlists three sadistic, bespectacled brothers, their violent antics on the ice (they like to play with toys in their spare time) earn the Chiefs a new legion of fans. However, the increasing infamy is no guarantee of the teams’ salvation, and is less than admired by their star player…

The Grifters (1990)

The Grifters is a uniquely twisted tale of the con-artist lifestyle. Nearly every character in the film is an amoral soul – even the vaguely sympathetic figure of Roy is ice-cold.
