Topic: Most Shocking Death Scenes?
I was talking about this with a friend recently and thought it made a nice little forum thread idea. So, what are the most shocking death scenes in cinema?
One that instantly springs to mind for me has got to be from the very start of Sinister. The very opening shot, straight away we see a family of 4 being hanged. It's just a single unflinching shot that seems to last for ages. What an opening! Once you see that, you know you're in for a very special movie!
Another one that I thought of - completely different to Sinister! - is the death scene in Bambi. If you want to traumatise a kid, stick on Bambi...or Lion King!
So what are your most shocking cinematic death or murder scenes? Which ones either made you jump back in horror, or burst with emotion?
