Ten Classic Cinematic Horror Deaths

Where would a horror movie be without a classic death scene – or two? We’ve had some great ones over the years: Janet Leigh’s shower to end all showers in Psycho (1960); the ill fated nude swim in Jaws (1975); David Warner’s famous decapitation in The Omen (1976); John Hurt’s serious indigestion problem in Alien (1979); and the exploding head in Scanners (1980). And let’s not forget the gruesome ends that befell pre-stardom Kevin Bacon and Johnny Depp.

Hang on a minute! I’ve just mentioned all the classic ones! Well let’s face it, so much has been written and discussed about those famous demises, they’ve been pretty much done to death (sorry!).

Lucio Fulci’s Zombie at the Hi-Pointe Midnights this Weekend!

Things quickly get out of control as undead Spanish conquistadors crawl from their graves hungry for human flesh. All this undead mayhem is highlighted by nauseatingly graphic set-pieces by make-up maestro Gianetto de Rossi. Zombie is an incredibly well-made shocker that was enormously popular worldwide and in many ways has aged better than the Romero film (it’s certainly scarier

Lucio Fulci's Zombie coming to theaters and Blu-ray/DVD

I remember watching Fulci's Zombie when it arrived on instant Netflix for the first time in 2009. As a fan of George Romero's zombie movies I was not sure how I would feel about a film that was called by many as the unofficial sequel to Dawn of the Dead. When I watched it I fell in love with the look and feel of this movie and can say that this is a must-watch zombie film. The film is set to get a re-release in theaters and an amazing Blu-ray release. Keep reading for more information.
