I am participating in a 30-day challenge. This time it is all about horror! If you know anything about us here at the Fort, you would know that we are hardcore horror fans. Each October, we watch a movie night that we dub “The 31 Nights of Horror.”
Prompt: Best Throat Slicing
Horror fans alike and unlike knowing one of the fun things about watching a horror film with a body is all the great unique skills that we have been so lucky to see in various Horror films; wanting to see kills isn’t because we’re a bunch of psychos that enjoy seeing people get brutally murdered as movie lovers it’s mainly because of the work and effort and talent we know that went into making said kill look realistic and awesome! I’ve seen some pretty great kills and also some pretty bad ones! There’s over the top kills that you know took some time to come up with the idea, kills that suck, and also kills that are simple. One thing about Horror movies, in general, is that they tend to borrow things from each other; there are also many of the same kinds of kills that have been repeatedly used in many different horror films!
is quite large when it comes to certain mainstream kills that we are just so used to seeing in many different horrors, Slashers, and Thrillers! Much like decapitation and chainsaw kills, even tho we are lucky for the well-thought-out unique kills, we still never get tired of those mainstream kills we all know and love! A great example is when we see a character get their poor throat slashed /cut. It’s a kill we are used to seeing and having been done in many different ways over and over, some are better done than others, but we can’t deny that, as horror fans, the horror world would not be the same without this certain kill!
The best throat-cut scene, in my opinion, is when the young Michael Meyers (Halloween 2007) tapes up his no-good stepfather to the couch and gives him a slice. It is classic Rob Zombie and a gory scene to watch.
