On this day in 41 AD Caligula was assassinated. In memoriam we give you a short, spoiler filled, gallery dedicated to some of the most infamous deaths in movies. Just remember to keep your back to the wall and enjoy.
One of the most famous deaths in film has to be from Psycho. Poor Marion Crane just wanted to take a shower after a long trip but Norman Bates’ mother had other plans.
Mufasa’s death is, quite possibly, the most famous animated assassination in animated movie history. Scar is what you may call a “bad brother” and a pretty horrible uncle.
In Burn After Reading poor Chad Feldheimer, perfectly portrayed by Brad Pitt, was just trying to hide in a closet but unfortunately for him that didn’t pay off like he had planned.
Kill Bill was full of amazingly fantastic deaths, as is par for the course when it comes to Tarantino films, but the most memorable one has to be when The Bride kills O-Ren Ishii after defeating her Crazy 88.
What American Psycho taught everyone that watched it was to be cautious of people with the style section laid out on the ground and they don’t happen to have a chow or some other little dog.
The Godfather may have the most assassinations per minute while the first one that always comes to mind is poor Santino as he tries to save his sister from an abusive spouse. This is what you get for being a good person for once.
Carol Reed’s The Third Man features Orson Welles and Joseph Cotten as they putter around post-war Austria. Oh and Orson Welles doesn’t really make it out alive, what with his shady dealings.
The Departed is what some may call a blood bath and part of that reason is poor Billy Costigan, trying to do the right thing, and his fatal run in with a bullet.
