Watership Down - also known as the Hampshire Bunny Massacre. As part of our 31 Days Of Horror celebration of all things macabre, we take a look at some of the most frightening and shocking moments in family friendly movies.
Star Wars: The Original Trilogy (1975-1983)Shocking Moment:
A Farewell to Arms Despite all being rated U, the original Star Wars
trilogy features plenty of violent scenes - most of which involving the frequent dismemberment of hands or arms. During the battle between Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) on Cloud City in The Empire Strikes Back
, Lukes hand is lopped off at the wrist by a well placed lightsabre swipe. It's clearly a painful moment for Luke.... But perhaps, not quite as painful as the revelation that follows. Theres also the cuddly Wampa on Hoth, and in the first Star Wars, we see Obi-Wan Kenobi cut Ponda Baba's arm off during a scuffle in Mos Eisley Cantina. This obsession with dismemberment is so apparent throughout the films, that the Black Knight
from Monty Python and the Holy Grail
wouldn't be out of place.
