10 Great Kills from otherwise Mediocre Horror Films

Updated on November 25, 2014

Chopping Mall

The Movie

When a group of teenage workers get stuck in the mall when it goes on lockdown the security system malfunctions and 3 of the mall security bots go after them in order to eliminate what they see as intruders. Overall a cheesy 80's slasher-type movie that doesn't really live up to its cool premise. Not too bad like some other movies on this list but nothing special or memorable either.

The Kill

When one of the kill bots chases down a blonde worker it utilizes its laser cannon defense system resulting in a shot blowing the head off of the blonde.

Piranha 3DD

The Movie

In the sequel to Piranha 3D the piranha move upstream from their feast at Lake Victoria where they come in contact with a new water park and David Hasselhoff. features the memorable quote "Josh cut off his penis because something came out of my vagina". Overall tries and fails to be what the first movie was and feels like something that should have gone straight to video.

The Kill

When the piranhas arrive at the waterpark one dumb boy decides to go closer and take a picture of one. At this point the fish jumps up and bites off the kids head.

The Happening

The Movie

When a plague of suicides hits central park and starts spreading a man, his wife, and a friend's daughter must flee to the countryside and theorize on what is causing this phenomenon and how it's spreading. Spoiler - It's the trees. Another example of how M. Night Shyamalan has fallen. The script and acting are weak which makes it hard to take seriously and feel like more of an unintentional comedy.

The Kill

Mark Wahlberg's character witnesses a man committing suicide via starting up a tractor mower and letting it run over him.

The Final Destination

The Movie

In the fourth Final Destination movie which was released in 3D a group survive a race care disaster after one of them has a premonition about the event. Just like all the other movies the survivors start dying off one by one except this time with lame special effects and cheesy 3D gimmicks that don't translate well out of the theater. Though the 3D aspect attracted enough people to make this a success both critics and fans were not very impressed with is entry which hurt the box office for the improved 'Final Destination 5' 2 years later

The Kill

When a guy chases a coin into the swimming pool he lands near the pool drain which sucks out his insides through the rectum.

Aliens VS Predator: Requiem

The Movie

In the 2nd in the spinoff AVP series a spacecraft crashes outside with aliens and a hybrid Predalien escaping the wreckage. A Predator later finds with its mission to wipe out the aliens and erase their presence. Meanwhile there are a bunch of slasher-film stereotype teenagers that we follow for some reason who get picked off by either the aliens or Predator.

The Kill

When the Predalien makes it to the hospital maternity ward it starts impregnating all the pregnant women one by one by laying eggs down their throat and the other patients are helpless to do anything.

Thirteen Ghosts

The Movie

When a man and his family inherit an estate from his deceased uncle he discovers 12 ghosts that have been collected and kept within the intricately designed house. With the help of a ghost hunter they attempt to set the spirits free. The ghost designs here are impressive enough but this remake of the 1960 film is overall nothing special.

The Kill

The Attorney encounters one of the ghosts and ends up being bisected by a glass sheet trap.

House of Wax

The Movie

Slasher movie remake in name only to the 1953 Vincent Price film(which was a remake itself of 'Mystery of the Wax Museum' from 2 decades earlier. A group of 20 something's go on a camping trip in the woods to discover an old wax museum. Pretty soon the two twin brothers who still run the place start hunting them down to use for their realistic wax exhibits. An average at best slasher film that for some reason has Paris Hilton in it.

The Kill

Paris Hilton's character is hunted down by one of the brothers where after peaking out from behind a car has a spike through and impaled through her head.

Jason X

The Movie

The tenth and last standalone entry in the original Friday the 13th series. Jason ends up frozen in a cryogenic chamber and is unlocked 500 years in the future by a young medical/science students on a spacecraft. Jason is thawed out and starts hacking away at people in space. Actually entertaining just really dumb and more implausible than even the other F13 sequels.

The Kill

After being thawed out and waking up Jason takes the head of one of the female medical students and thrusts her into a pool of liquid nitrogen. This instantly freezes the face which he throws down on the counter smashing it.

Street Trash

The Movie

A liquor store owner finds some old cases of wine that have gone bad but decides to sell it to the hobos in the surrounding area anyway. What he doesn't know is that the wine causes anyone who drinks it to melt. The title is pretty accurate as it's mostly just trashy with little redeeming value other than the somewhat impressive melt scenes and even those are kind of too far spread out.

The Kill

A hobo sits down on a toilet and starts to drink the wine. After a short time the affects of the wine kick in and he experiences an intense pain when he starts to melt away into a blue slime.

Ghost Ship

The Movie

In 1962 the passengers of an Italian luxury ocean liner are murdered by the crew leaving it set adrift in international waters. 40 years later the ship is spotted in the Bering Strait and a salvage crew goes in to claim it. After coming aboard strange occurrences start to happen including the presence of ghosts of the former passengers and crew. Not an overall bad film but the storyline is kind of weak and doesn't stand out in the long run.

The Kill

In the opening scene the passengers are having a dance ball on the deck of the ship. The captain invites a lone girl out to dance with him. Meanwhile a lever is pulled causing a cable wire contraption to come out slicing through the crowd splitting many into 2-3 pieces.
