The Best Worst Horror Movie Deaths

Horror movies provide us with visceral thrills, forcing us to contend with our deepest and darkest fears in the form of monsters, murderers, and malevolent forces creeping in the shadows. They also provide us with a plethora of macabre imagery as masked killers rend limbs asunder with long, serrated blades or otherworldly, eldritch terrors gnash at our flesh with horrible, razor-sharp teeth. That’s one end of the horror movie spectrum — where the deaths send a rush of adrenaline coursing through your body as your brain tries to comprehend the brutality of what you just witnessed.

That’s not what we’re going to be talking about today on The Dan Cave, though. Oh, no. Today, we’re celebrating those horror movie deaths where you have to turn to whoever’s sitting next to you, arch your eyebrow in disbelief, and ask, “Wait, seriously?” Today we are celebrating the bottom of the barrel, the gristle on the bone, the best of the worst. So, join me, horrorhounds as we take a journey into the dual cinematic hearts of darkness and dumbassery by celebrating the Best Worst Horror Movie Deaths of All Time™.
