10 Iconic Horror Death Scenes That Were Much Better Than The Films
Don't cry Drew, you went on to much bigger and better things. Horror films, launching actor's careers since the birth of cinema. But is it their acting skills or their death they are most famed for? Would Jonny Depp be as famous as he is if he hadn't played Glen in 'Nightmare on Elm Street'? Everyone has their favourite horror death, whether it be Jack Nicholson in 'The Shining' or Jamie Lee Curtis in 'Halloween H:20' (maybe not). The great thing about the horror genre is no one is safe, there is no greater satisfaction than seeing the titular character carved up in the title sequence. Gallons of blood are needed- 500 gallons to be exact in the case of the original 'Nightmare on Elm Street', you need a bimbo, splash in some sex and of course an iconic villain. There are so many deaths that stand out from films, but ultimately the film is an icon in itself. You may remember John Hurt's death in 'Alien', but you remember the film as a whole package just as much. Where Hollywood comes a cropper is where a death is better than the film. If you put too much emphasis on a death the film pales in comparison. Stay turned for the Top 10 deaths which outshine the film they are in.
