New Bloody Disgusting contributing writer Andrea Albin (of the Albin Way) has delivered a new special feature that required the help of the entire horror community. Inside you’ll find “The Top Ten Goriest Horror Movie Moments” as selected by YOU (you can’t blame us this time!), courtesy of Miss Albin. Read on, take a look, and then tel us what you would have put on the list instead. This should be a fun one to talk about…
This is a tough one. I’m almost ashamed to admit it. Sometimes, I have fantasies about them- unadulterated, full-blown dream sequences. I’m secretly obsessed with– lists.
That’s right- I’m a VH1 countdown, Bravo watching, Yahoo-front page clicking chick. Oh yeah, it’s that bad.
So about a month ago I began renting random horror flicks, ones that I hadn’t seen in years. One by one, I took mental note of the scariest ones: The Exorcism. The Hills Have Eyes. Texas Chainsaw Massacre. And then, a light bulb went off- what if I wrote a list about the scariest movie moments of all time?
It would be monumental! It would be glorious! It would be… overdone and overrated. Moving on.
Don’t get me wrong, this list has probably been done a million times too, but at least with the goriest horror movie moments I could have some fun, throw in some video clips, and hopefully freak some people out. (I’m actually striving to cause vomit, but I’ll wait until my directorial debut.) But this list isn’t just my brainchild. I turned to Twitter, Facebook, my blog, and good ol’ fashioned conversation to compile a list out of nearly three hundred opinions (287, to be exact).
So here we go- the top ten goriest horror movie moments. Don’t kill the messenger.
There’s something about a crazy chick with a sharp wire that sends chills down my spine.
Jesus wept. Enough said.
A bottle of Chianti would have washed it down really nice.
After all, it is Jigsaw’s “personal favorite.”
Who would have thought furniture could be an effective weapon?
I know the dude was trying to help, but seriously, did he have to cut her eyeball?
Poor Mrs. Permatteo didn’t stand a chance.
I don’t think this is the way he envisioned his day ending.
1, 2 Freddy’s comin’ for you.
I think all good horror movie heroes should be armed with a lawn mower.
