5 Off My Head: Off With Her Heart

The poster for Darren Aronofsky's next film mother! made a big sticky wet splash this weekend and with good cause - that's an image that grabs you by the... well, if I say "heart" am I already getting too redundant for my own good? Anyway we still don't know much about the film except it's some sort of thriller about a couple tormented by unwelcome guests (and I still haven't figured out who of the cast is the "couple" and who plays the "guests" but the film stars Jennifer Lawrence, Domhnall Gleeson, Javier Bardem and Michelle Pfeiffer) - it's not out until October, so we'ves till got some time.

"I was using that."

But in a weird coincidence last night's episode of American Gods, besides featuring some astonishingly hot gay sex, also featured a heart being torn out of a woman's chest! Granted this was part of an afterlife trial, but if Heart-Ripping is in vogue this minute I guess it's as good a time as any to make a fun list...

5 Fun Scenes of Heart Trauma

1. Rorsach (Ron Palillo) getting his heart punched out 
by Jason Voorhees in Friday the 13 Part VI: Jason Lives 
2. Bart losing love on The Simpsons

3. The brutal beautiful first murder in Dario Argento's film Suspiria
-- you can see more here
4. The "Doggy Bag" dream sequence
from Dumb and Dumber

5. And of course the greatest Heart Ripping scene in all of movies- probably never to be beaten, when the human sacrifice to Kali is lit up in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. (more here)


And I know there are tons more --
Tell me your faves in the comments!
