Worst movie death scene ever? More like BEST movie death scene ever. (video)

[Video Link] Apparently, a clip from the Turkish movie "Kareteci Kız 1973." HT: Joe Sabia.


  1. Surely the best death scene is that of Basil Rathbone’s prolonged Shakespeare-declaiming death in The Comedy of Terrors. Surely.

    1. The worst death scene is Dina Meyer in Starship Troopers.

      I bought the farm, didn’t I, Johnny ?

      No, you’re gonna be alright, Diz !

      It’s alright ’cause I got to have you, Johnny…

      1. But that’s on purpose, Starship Troopers is like a Beverly Hills 90210 gore splatterfest in the outer space!  With a very strong fascistic subtext, to boot.  All in all, popcorn entertainment of a high caliber.

  2. Oh shit, is that the actual soundtrack? They stole that from Marvin Gaye’s soundtrack for the movie “Trouble Man.”

  3. I freaking love Turkish cinema. I thought the death of the Wizard at the end of Turkish Star Wars was pretty intense, but it’s nothing compared to this.

    1. “Wilhelm” has a distinct downward fall.  At half speed I think it would still be recognizable.

      Original Wilhelm: Here

      Stretched to double length with 1970s style Tech: Here

      Stretched to double length with the best tool I could get my hands on in ten minutes: Here

      Stretched to quadruple length with the same modern tool I used as the last clip: Here

      They’re all soundcloud links.  I’m pretty sure it’s fair use.  As this is commentary.  And a small sample.

      I didn’t use the ’70s tech to do a quarterspeed sample, since it’s unrecognizable as anything: GGGGRRRRRRRRRRRRRRSSSSSSHHHH.

  4. “I know what you’re thinking: ‘Did she shoot me six times, or only five?’ Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself.”

  5. Best death evaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh……

    1. I’m not convinced that he actually died at the end of that scene. I think he was just pausing to catch his breath while she reloaded for round 2.

  6. Prologue: “One day I will make a movie with a very, very long death scene with a guy getting shot in the gut!”

    Pre-Production: “This death scene with a guy getting shot in the gut!… I want it to be very long!”

    Production: “When you die in this scene after getting shot in the gut, I want you to die for a very long time!”

    Post-Production: “Actors! Idiots! This death scene where the guy was shot in the guy was not long enough! Please, slow it down so it can last longer!”

    Premiere: “At last, my long death scene where a guy is shot in the gut will be seen by all!”

    Epilogue: “Finally! Despite the film’s initial failure, my long death scene where a guy is shot in the gut is appreciated the world over! Thank you Internet!”

  7. The B/W cliché, the guy gets a bloodless bullet in the stomach, goes “Aaah, ya got me!” and drops dead instantly.
    Which reminds me of “crime news” magazine headlines in Mexico:  “Stabbed 36 times, died instantly”.

  8. In Scotland we used to play a game called “Dead Man’s Fall.” We’d find a steep grassy slope, at the top of which everyone would stand, except for the killer, who would be down below. You’d get to choose how you were going to be killed, and the killer would dutifully mime the act of throwing a dagger, or shooting a machine gun, or firing an arrow, or whatever. The point of the game was to die spectacularly, with much screaming, clutching of the body, and tumbling. I realize now that we were all complete amateurs.

  9. This guy should do children’s birthday parties. Give all the kids pop guns and he’ll die over the course of the afternoon.

  10. Probably obvious but, it says “the end” at the end of the scene, which makes it more hilarious. The movie just ends like this.

  11. The blood pack was the best bit, for me. They coulda cut to it just before his hand squeezed it. Or not used slow-mo. But no: slow-mo shot with the blood pack beautifully visible. Just, perfect.

  12. I like to take foto-camera. This my story !!!

    I like to be friendship from different country. I can invitate she ….. she is want to come TURKEY. This is my home ……. I can WELCOME TO MY HOME !!!!!!!!! She can stay my home  …….. She can no like to be friendship …. she like shoot to me. I no like shoot to me …. I am make to scream much time. I can no drink and i can make sleep the bed. I can no like read magazine now.

    I KISS YOU !!!!!

  13. “UNH! My kidney! OWWW! My spleen! UGH! My appendix! CRAP! Latissima dorsae! SHIT! Shot my own foot! Et mi? Then die, Mustafa!”

  14. To be shot over and over whilst screaming and thrashing about, yet, somehow managing to hang on to one’s gun is simply amazing in itself.
