Death of the Day: “Hatchet” (2006)

Adam Green holds nothing back in the beloved 2006 Hatchet as Victor Crowley chops and rips this couple to pieces! Blood sprays everywhere as Crowley’s latest victims endure some of the most painful of deaths. The effects within this clip add a great element to the deaths that Adam Green has perfected. Slasher Studios can’t wait for his next installment.

Death of the Day–Stu Gets His Television Break in “Scream”

Stu finally gets what is coming to him at the end of this epic battle with the great Sydney. As they struggle through the house and feathers fly, Stu is kicked in the crotch, bitten on the hand and slammed in the head with a vase. All futile attempts and escape from Sydney until she unleashes her inner Freddy and fries the bloodied Stu with the TV. There are many incredible deaths found within the Scream series, but this one is a bit unique as the cause of death is electrocution from a television set. Gotta love the old tube televisions….

Death Of The Day: “Cabin Fever 2” – Paul’s Bus Smash

Director Ti West takes on this ultra gory sequel with one thing in mind: BLOOD! And he sure does deliver the goods. Paul, played by Rider Strong, makes an appearance (it’s short, but an appearance nonetheless) as he tries his hardest to make it out of the woods alive. Unfortunately for him, but lucky for us horror fans, he picks the wrong time to cross the road. As a school bus comes barreling down the road, the bloody and bloated Paul begins to lose his balance and falls victim to the bus as his body is BLASTED into a millions pieces and scattered across the road.

Death of the Day – Freeze Face from JASON X

The death of Adrienne comes at the hands of the great Jason Voorhees. Only this time Jason has been frozen and it’s the year 2455. As Adrienne works alone with her back to Jason, she is suddenly grabbed by him and thrown up against the frosted window. The banging on the window is very à la SCREAM 2 as she tries, without success, to get the attention of a fellow crew member. As Adrienne’s pleads go unnoticed, she is grabbed again and is dunked into a sink full of liquid nitrogen. The freeze effect was very well done and was a nice touch. The blonde’s head is then pulled back out of the sink and her face is SLAMMED down onto the countertop. Her face shatters and Jason tosses her lifeless body onto the floor.

Death of the Day: Debbie Turns Cockroach in “A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master”

We have been so busy with Flashback Weekend and working on finishing Blood Brothers, we haven’t had much time for a really good Death of the Day here at Slasher Studios. Don’t worry slasher fans, the feature is back and we have a great one for you today. Hate bugs? Who doesn’t, right? Well our Death of the Day is Debbie from the underrated “A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master” turning into a cockroach. Yuck! This is the death that used to give me nightmares as a child. I am not a fan of bugs so just imagining turning into a bug just gives me the willies. Freddy gives some of the best death scenes ever and this one truly is the best of the best.

Death of the Day: Uberbitch Taylor Fisher Cut from the Class in “Detention”

Today’s Death of the Day comes from the new movie “Detention” the wonderfully manic new slasher film that is now out on home video (main review for the film here). In the opening sequence (which could stand as a wonderful short film of its own) we meet the beautiful uberbitch Taylor Fisher. Taylor is the most popular girl in Grizzly Lake, waking up and telling the audience how to be cool while yelling at her family. As she is about to leave for school, she is brutally murdered by someone dressed as Cinderhella, a horror film serial killer. Sadly there is no video of this death online so I leave you with the stills below. Check out this movie ASAP, it is well worth the watch and might just be the first horror movie of the year that is actually worth owning.

Death of the Day–Chloe’s Face Meets Fire Extinguisher–“My Super Psycho Sweet 16”

We have another favorite death of the day for you slasher fans. This one comes straight to you from Sean Wells as he takes a look at his favorite slasher death from his favorite slasher movie, Chloe’s unfortunate demise in “My Super Psycho Sweet 16.” “Definitely the most brutal of the film, this scene caught my attention as soon as Charlie appeared out of the fog and beat her with the extinguisher. These scene wasn’t taken to the extremes with the gore factor because it is made-for-TV, but I found it to be enough to call itself a good scene, and the slight suspense of Chloe calling for Skye had me a bit intimidated by what was going to happen to that poor girl.”

Death of the Day—Basketball to the Noggin in Wes Craven’s “Deadly Friend”

Not many movies have gone through the production hell that Wes Craven’s “Deadly Friend” faced. Ordered by Warner Bros. to add in extra gore and a brand new “shocking” ending, the finished film is a favorite of some fans while others cry out to see the original vision that Craven had in mind. While the final film may be a bit hit-or-miss, one thing is certain that everyone is sure to love. The death scene of nosy neighbor Elvira as she gets pummeled in the head with a basketball as her lifeless torso hits the ground spewing blood everywhere. It’s a hilariously gratuitous gore scene in the middle of a fairly serious horror drama. This movie is all sorts of weird and this death scene is just about the tip of the strangeness. I can’t say this death really fits in with the rest of the movie but at least it’s fun.

Death of the Day–Phillip Turns Puppet in “A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors”

Are you ready for a brand new death of the day? Today we will be looking at a particularly disturbing death that freaked me out for years: Phillip’s death from A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors. The way that Freddy slices open Phillip’s veins to turn him into a human puppet is quite disturbing. It gave me nightmares when I was a kid and I couldn’t watch the scene until well into my teenage years. You know what? Even watching the scene now, I STILL have to look away.
