While there’s no shortage of Troma-inspired gore in Super, the moment that’s hardest for me to watch takes place about 30 seconds after the above still. Once Rainn Wilson’s Crimson Bolt gains the upper hand on Michael Rooker’s Abe, he begins smashing the back of his skull against the brick-lined base of that fireplace. Again and again and again. You hear bones shatter and you can actually see the structural damage rearrange Abe’s facial features before you get a glimpse of the more severe damage that’s been done to the receiving end of his skull.
