Fantastic Fest

So what were the 100 Best Kills, Anyway?

Right off the bat, I'll tell you: We didn't even get close to 100 kills. But with two straight hours of violent mayhem that was punctuated only by the nostalgically caustic wit of Mr. Zack Carlson, I'd say this was definitely one of the most entertaining events of the whole damn festival. Plus, c'mon, 100 onscreen kills would take about five hours to appreciate -- and really, the Somewhere Between 35 and 40 Best Kills Party just doesn't have the same ring to it.

Listed below are all the clips that played at the first annual "100" Best Kills Geekfest, contributed by Zack Carlson, Lars Nilsen, and a small handful of loyal Alamo lunatics. If you have any suggestions, leave 'em in the comments section below. I'm sure Zack will want a nice gory list for FF 2009.

  1. Maniac (1980) -- Savini shotgun blast.
  2. Psycho 2 (1983) -- Mother shovel head.
  3. Goodbye Uncle Tom (1971) -- Something really disgusting.
  4. Powder (1995) -- Electric powder sprint.
  5. Irreversible (2002) -- Fire extinguisher rhinoplsty.
  6. Dark Age (1987) -- Whining child snack.
  7. Class of 1984 (1982) -- Buzz saw encore.
  8. Million Dollar Baby (2004) -- Post-euthansia pause.
  9. The Crow (1994) -- Bullets Over Brandon.
  10. The Omen (1976) -- David Warner de-capped.
  11. Invasion U.S.A. (1985) -- Coke-snortin' skewer.
  12. The Bridge (2006) -- Golden Gate gallop.
  13. Chopping Mall (1986) -- Preppy chick puree.
  14. Flesh for Frankenstein (1973) -- Juicy Morrisey gore.
  15. Devil Times Five (1974) -- Piranha bath time.
  16. Mr. Scarface (1976) -- Shooting the crooner.
  17. High Crime (1973) -- Hot little kiddie.

  24. House (1977) -- Piano monster psych-a-deelio.
  25. Hit and Run (?) -- Need help here.
  26. The Brain That Wouldn't Die (1962) -- Longest. Demise. Ever.
  27. The Prowler (1981) --Umm, I forget.
  28. Darker Than Amber (1970) --Totally blanking on this one.
  29. Top Secret! (1984) -- The shattered Nazi.
  30. Don't Go In the House (1980) -- One hot chick.
  31. Total Recall (1990) -- Farwell to arms.
  32. Leprechaun 3 (1995) -- Lips, boobs, and buttocks. (Oh my.)
  33. An American Werewolf in London (1981) -- Picadilly Mayhem!
  34. The Quick and the Dead (1995) -- Hackman goes NUTS!
  35. Gremlins (1984) -- Old lady rocket-chair.
  36. To Be 20 -- ??? Was that the title? Damn you Lars and your hyper-obscure proclivities!
  37. Night Warning (1983) -- Pretty sure this was the INSANE clip involving a car, a road, a lot of lumber, some gore, and a crazy explosion. Someone told me Code Red was releasing it on DVD soon.

Did I miss any? Sorry, it was dark in there. But please do consider this the FIRST request for 2009 kills. I mean, jeez, how did we not get "machete-wheelchair-face" from Friday the 13th Part 2 or "machete-floor-sliiiiice" from Friday 4 OR the ridiculously extended demise of John Malkovich in Con Air? C'mon, people! Plus Joe Lynch says if we don't include the opening mega-slice from Wrong Turn 2 next year, he's going to come to Austin and pee on Tim's red van. But if we use Joe's clip, we have to include Adam Green's reverse-head-crush from Hatchet. Those guys are really competitive.

    Yep, that was TO BE 20 where the two girls get the sheeeit raped out of them. aka AVERE VENT'ANNI

    Two more were from Asian titles: the girl-eaten-by-piano scene from 1977's HOUSE and the torch-the-little-kid scene from 1993's RUN AND KILL.
