Death of the Day: Kids on Raft—“The Burning” (1981)

We are starting a new segment at Slasher Studios entitled “Gore Galore.” In this new segment we will be covering our favorite death scenes. What better death scene to start with that the wonderfully grisly raft scene from “The Burning.” As our fellow horror correspondant Jeffrey Lee states “Tom Savini is THE maestro of special effects! His work is so brilliant that it becomes a character in the movie that he’s working on. In this scene there are 5 over-the-top deaths in 30 seconds! It’s in your face, super gory, and makes no apologies. This scene proved Cropsy to be one of the most brutal killing machines in slasher history!”
