The 10 best death movies feature the most killing. They also sometimes feature funny one liners uttered by the killer before a murder. Twisted minds will enjoy the following list of some of the best death movies ever. 

  1. "Pulp Fiction". This 1994 cult classic film is not all about death, but it features a lot of it. There are three stories in this movie tied into one. You'll find hit men, robbers and boxing champions along with a guy who quotes Ezekiel 25:17 just before he shoots someone. 
  2. "Nightmare on Elm Street" A dead child molester gets revenge on a group of teenagers in their dreams after his incineration by angry parents. When Freddy kills his victims in a dream, they die for real. 
  3. "Full Metal Jacket" Vietnam war movies are known for lots of death and violence. This death movie outlines the disillusionment and struggle of individual soldiers from boot camp and beyond as they kill and be killed. 
  4. "Jaws" A killer shark has more than his share of human victims in this 1975 death movie. A group of small island residents decide to hunt down this Great White from hell. 
  5. "Enter the Ninja" Here's one of the better death movies for those who like ninjas. Join an American war veteran on a journey to the Philippines, where he battles villains who are out for his friend's land. 
  6. "Live and Let Die" This 1973 James Bond movie contains lots of death and mayhem. Roger Moore plays James Bond for the first time as a spy who is sent to the United States to conquer Mr. Big. Join James Bond in his battles against Mr. Big's entourage
  7. "The Godfather" Al Pacino plays Michael Corleone, a young man who wants nothing to do with his mafia family's empire. That is, until his brother is murdered. 
  8. "Silence of the Lambs" Hannibal Lecter is a serial killer, former psychologist and genius in this classic 1991 death movie. An FBI agent interviews Lecter about the psychology of deranged killers with the hope of catching another serial killer. 
  9. "Raiders of the Lost Ark" Harrison Ford play Indiana Jones in a movie with lots of death scenes. Indiana is an archeologist who escapes a murderous rival archeologist.

  10. "Reservoir Dogs" Like "Pulp Fiction," this is another death movie by Quentin Tarantino. Join six robbers in wacky and deadly adventures.
