Oh come on! Good article, but how can you not mention the opening sequence in Saving Private Ryan? From the first few guys who get it in the head as soon as the door comes down on the boat or the guy who is part of the unit that has the bullet luckily bounce off his helmet to only catch another one in the head a second later. I watched Pan`s Labyrinth for the first time last week and couldn`t believe how brutal that scene was. ill man, ill! That propeller bounce for some reason always makes me laugh. Its just a nasty sounding thud but reminds me of Wile Coyote. The Ghost Ship scene is another ill scene. That one chick gets it in the mouth I think. Nasty. What`s funny for me is I went to high school with Desmond Harrington, the antagonist in the movie. Couldn`t believe he was in it. The elevator scene in RE is pretty cool and actually pretty gut wrenching. They do the same thing in Final Destination 2.

I know this list is flawed because nowhere on it did I see the cannonball guy from The Patriot. You know, where the cannonball bounces some distance before the soldiers then comes up and takes the guy's head clean off. Fantastic death to a no-name character that can't be left off this list.

One of the best ones that I remember occurred at the beginning of Glory. The union army was charging across the battle field and at least one guy got his head taken clean off by a canon ball. After that battle scene the director didn't have to express the horror of civil war battles through the rest of the movie. It was implied...

This article is all wrong. Why isn't Elizabeth Berkley aka Jessie Spano on this list? She certainly could be #1. Elizabeth Berkley Death by: starring in Showgirls.

don't articles like this usually cater to the masses by including at least one current film? one current film with a magic trick involving a pencil and its disappearance?

LOL Hanso - but she's actually returned from the grave a few times... and technically , can you really say her career died when she really didn't have one to begin with...Saved by the Bell? GAH!<BR itxtvisited="1" /><BR itxtvisited="1" />I like the list. Everyone's going to have their own opinions of what should/shouldn't be there. And of course I'll add my unneccesary 2 cents in and say: I would have moved the Pans Lab one up a bit just because of the brutality and shock of it. It takes a lot to get to me but that I was NOT ready for that first time around and was floored. Heads exploding is nasty but BOOM and it's over - that stabbing didn't have an immediate death.

yeah, word, didn`t he try to speak for a few seconds and then if the caved in face wasn`t enough, the dude shoots him in the head. I sat there, like oh shit! I had to rewind it twice.

How about the elevator death in The Fly II. And I totally agree with the cannonball death in The Patriot. While the opening death in Jaws was iconic, I would put the death of the little boy on the list instead. That's one death scene that still gets me.

Or how about Nightmare on Elm Street part one. Where Johnny Depp gets swallowed by the bed, and the bed regurgitates all over the ceiling.

Emil from Robocop is NOT a forgettable character. Although I love his death, it should not be anywhere near this list.
