Thursday's Halloween's Ways Not To Die

It's a Very Special Holiday Edition! And it's massive. Below are 33 different deaths (well, 32 and a bonus) from 16 different films. See how many of the movies you can identify! There are films repeated within, obviously, but - and this isn't me challenging you to strain your brains - I really don't expect anyone to be able to guess what films every single one of these are from. I most assuredly wouldn't be able to if I hadn't sought them all out myself. But name what ones you can in the comments!

Glenn, all yours are right.

Sparky, I am super impressed. You got all but one right - #19 is Return of the Living Dead: Part 2, but you were certainly close enough for me to give that one to ya.

That leaves #6,8,9,12,14,17,20,24, and 25.

If anyone gets #12 they'll officially blow my mind. That's the ringer.

Well, I know I won't be eating lunch today.

mmmmm... breakfasty

i think i figured out number 12 (i wasn't sure last night) but i looked in one of my zombie movie books just to make sure.

Wile E Coyote said...

Number 12 was a stumper for me as well. I know I've seen the movie. My guess is Hellraiser.

shaun said...

#9 flip-top zombie is from Land of the Dead

#14 the kiss and the zombie against glass is from 28 Weeks Later

#20 officer mcbitesalot is from Land of the Dead

#24 lady who adventured too close to window and nasty wrist wound are from 28 Weeks Later

God, I think I know the one between ROTLD and Dawn of the Dead, but I can't remember the name! I think it was an older movie with maybe a whole nuclear theme? Anyway, the one past Dawn of the Dead is 28 Weeks Later.

Pilar said...

8, 17 and 25 are Dead Alive!

JA said...

Wow, good going, you guys! The only ones left are #6 and #12... I'm surprised nobody's gotten #6. I think if anyone's seen the film of which it comes from - and it's the only shot from said film included here, so I have no idea yet if any of you have seen it - then it's def. a shot one remembers.

As for #12, that's the only film of these that comes from a film I've never seen, and in all honesty had never even heard of, until I did some internet digging for this post. I know know nothing about the film except the title. So it's presence is more of a stumper than anything else, and if anyone pulls it out it would really blow my mind. I'll tell y'all what it is if nobody guesses by tomorrow.

sparky2379 said...

i don't want to ruin it for anybody still trying to figure it but i think #12 is 'i was a teenage zombie' which i've never seen either, coincidentally. but i recognized the still with the crappy makeup from someplace else. can't remember where, now. anyway that's my guess.

RC said...

that's really an unfortunate and disgusting way to die.

shaun said...

12 isn't from that awful "Children of the Living Dead" movie is it? I watched but a few minutes of that stinker and had to go cleanse my mental pallet...yuck!

JA said...

Here's the answer to #12... and a hint for #6 as well.

I'm a bit late, but any points for identifying the banner zombie as appearing on the cover of the "Return of the Living Dead" novelization?
