In Honor Of Channing Askew: 9 Gruesome Self-Mutilation Scenes http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/in-honor-of-channing-askew-9-gruesome-self-mutilation-scenes/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/in-honor-of-channing-askew-9-gruesome-self-mutilation-scenes/#comments Fri, 04 Nov 2011 19:48:14 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=235144 Cut. It. Out.

Chicago’s fatty foods have blood on their hands. In news that seems straight out of an episode of Supernatural, a Chicago man has died after cutting his own pacemaker out of his chest. Channing Askew complained of chest pains and, while waiting for an ambulance to arrive, carved the device out with a screwdriver or knife, or perhaps some kind of hyper-advanced screw-knife hybrid?

At any rate, that’s horrifying… but it would be cool in a movie. Self-mutilation has been a popular theme in movies. Especially those that aim to creep us out. Like these gory gems.

Evil Dead

One of the most famous scenes in Evil Dead sees Bruce Campbell going to battle with his own demonically-possessed hand. After slapping himself around for awhile, he gets the bright idea to remove it with a chainsaw. Dude. It’s called rope. He could have easily subdued that thing.

Saw

Of all the ways that the Saw films managed to grind, disassemble, and splatter their victims, one of the grisliest scenarios happens in the original film. After awaking to find himself bound by chains in a filthy bathroom, Cary Elwes is faced with a life or death choice. Sit in the room and die. Or saw off his foot and hobble to safety. What’s he really need it for anyway? It’s not like he’s a professional field goal kicker.

Thirteen

Thirteen gives a hot look at the world of cutting. Oh wait. Those girls are actually thirteen? I didn’t mean hot. I meant, thoughtful, raw, and artistic. Yeah.

9 Most Disturbing Home Invasion Movies http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/9-most-disturbing-home-invasion-movies/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/9-most-disturbing-home-invasion-movies/#comments Tue, 06 Sep 2011 15:00:14 +0000 Joseph Gibson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=227016 Anybody home?

The post 9 Most Disturbing Home Invasion Movies appeared first on Screen Junkies.

The upcoming film Straw Dogs appears to take the home invasion genre to new heights of depravity. So it might be a good idea for you to prepare yourself for the Straw Dogs juju by taking a look at some disturbing home invasion movies from years past.

Funny Games

Michael Haneke’s Funny Games is a remake, but it’s a remake of the director’s own movie, sadistically tailored to American audiences. And it is perhaps the ultimate home invasion movie, using ever weapon in the director’s arsenal to drive the characters (an upper-class suburban family who are attacked by two murderously playful villains) and the audience into a frenzy.

Panic Room

A good home invasion movie grabs the audience by the throat and puts them in a state of almost unbearable suspense – this is certainly the case with Panic Room. There’s a twist, though- for the vast majority of the movie, the mother and daughter being invaded aren’t even in the same room with the dangerous thieves that have broken into their home. It’s thanks to the “panic room” of the title, but what happens if the invaders want to get INTO the panic room?

One Hour Photo

Some home invaders prefer to provide more psychological than physical disturbances. Robin Williams‘ character in One Hour Photo would be a good a good example of this, as he becomes unhealthily obsessed with a family that regularly has their photos developed by him. His loneliness is so real that you might find yourself feeling sorry for him, at least until he snaps and starts threatening the family members with a knife when they don’t meet his standards for the perfect family.

Tom Petty’s Daughter To Direct ‘Saw’- Er, I Mean ‘Suffocate’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/tom-pettys-daughter-to-direct-saw-er-i-mean-suffocate/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/tom-pettys-daughter-to-direct-saw-er-i-mean-suffocate/#comments Mon, 07 Mar 2011 18:00:47 +0000 Dave Horwitz http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=102521 Adria Petty, daughter of singer songwriter Tom Petty, is slated to direct a horror/thriller about some people and a house and some booby traps and stuff.

The post Tom Petty’s Daughter To Direct ‘Saw’- Er, I Mean ‘Suffocate’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Adria Petty, daughter of singer songwriter Tom Petty, is an up and coming filmmaker. She recently directed the documentary Paris, Not France, and is now set to direct Radar Pictures’ upcoming thriller Suffocate, penned by Ben Olson. In addition to the doc, Petty has previously directed numerous music videos for artists like Beyonce and Regina Spektor, and directed commercials for Target, Converse, and McDonald’s.

The synopsis of the film, which makes it sound a lot like an A&E reality show combined with the Saw series, is as follows:

“Suffocate is a thriller about a group of city workers who enter a hoarder’s condemned brownstone and find it loaded with deadly traps, and an unrelenting killer. The group is forced to use their wits–and demolition tools–to stay alive.”

Petty’s got a clear visual style, as is evidenced by her many music videos, so perhaps she can make this a memorable narrative debut. No word yet as to whether her dad’s hit “The Waiting” will be used in the soundtrack as the city workers are “waiting” to see whether they live or die. What? No good? “Freefalling?” That doesn’t work either. OOH! “Don’t Come Around Here No More?” Perfect. (Deadline)

10 Best ‘Saw’ Traps Of All Time http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/10-best-saw-traps-of-all-time/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/10-best-saw-traps-of-all-time/#comments Tue, 26 Oct 2010 15:46:44 +0000 amacris As anyone who has seen the Saw films will tell you, that Jigsaw guy is a real jerk. Once a successful engineer with a loving wife, John Kramer morphed into a sadistic serial killer after he was diagnosed with inoperable cancer. Talk about being self-absorbed. That’s called a YP, Jigsaw: your problem, not mine. But regardless of how you feel about Jigsaw personally, you have to admit he’s a clever guy. Sure, maybe his traps (or “games”) are horribly cruel and unnecessarily elaborate, but damn it if they aren’t impressive. Honestly, when someone is wearing a reverse-bear trap on their mouth, it’s hard to look away. With that in mind, here are 10 of Jigsaw’s greatest traps. (Spoilers Ahead) Also, be sure and take our survey at the bottom to vote for YOUR favorite trap, and sound off in the comment section. 10. The Mausoleum Trap - Saw IV

But regardless of how you feel about Jigsaw personally, you have to admit he’s a clever guy. Sure, maybe his traps (or “games”) are horribly cruel and unnecessarily elaborate, but damn it if they aren’t impressive. Honestly, when someone is wearing a reverse-bear trap on their mouth, it’s hard to look away. With that in mind, here are 10 of Jigsaw’s greatest traps. (Spoilers Ahead) Also, be sure and take our survey at the bottom to vote for YOUR favorite trap, and sound off in the comment section.

10. The Mausoleum Trap – Saw IV

This trap involves a man with his eyes sewn shut and another man with is mouth sewn shut. Both men are wearing collars that are chained to a winding drum at the center of the room. Since one can’t speak, and the other can’t see, it makes for a rather wacky adventure, especially when weapons are thrown into the mix.

9. The Cube Trap – Saw V

Unlike most of the traps on this list, this one does not offer a way out for the victim. It is designed only to torture and kill, which makes the outcome somewhat humorous (if you consider a self-applied tracheotomy humorous, which I’m sure you do). The victim’s head is placed in a see-through box, and the box begins filling with liquid. But rather than simply drown, the victim (Agent Strahm) was quick on his feet, and shoved a pen into his own throat, allowing him to temporarily breath through the hole until help arrived. All’s well that ends well.

8. “The Scalping Seat” – Saw IV

Another simple, yet terrifying creation, the “scalping seat” (or hair chair) is a pretty painful way to go. A victim with long locks has their hair looped though a metal ring and wound around an axle. The axle slow turns, tightening the hair with each rotation. If it goes on long enough, it will rip the person’s scalp off. The end.

7. The Reverse Bear Trap – Saw

Perhaps you’ve heard of reverse cowgirl? Well this isn’t nearly as fun (or so I’ve been told).

This trap is just what it sounds like. Instead of snapping shut in order to smash the victim, the reverse bear trap snaps open. That doesn’t sound too scary, except for the fact that it’s placed in the victim’s mouth, and will easily rip through their head if not disarmed. In all fairness to Jigsaw, the trap does have the desired effect on its victim, Amanda Young. She escapes from the contraption with a new lease on life. She goes on to kick her drug habit, which is good, but also goes on to become Jigsaw’s apprentice, which is bad. Ah well.

‘Piranha 3DD’ Schedules Blood, Boobs for August 2011 http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/piranha-3dd-schedules-blood-boobs-for-august-2011/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/piranha-3dd-schedules-blood-boobs-for-august-2011/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 It's no surprise that Piranha 3D is getting a sequel. It's also no surprise that the sequel's title contains a pun involving breasts (Piranha 3DD). What is surprising is the fact that the film is scheduled to hit theaters in August 2011. I know they're not exactly going for an Oscar, but less than a year is still a pretty quick turn around time. John Gulager (Feast) is set to direct, while Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan (Saw sequels) will pen the script. Let's hope Melton and Dunstan are fast writers. To speed things up, might I suggest using the word "tits" instead of "breasts," the word "fish" instead of "piranha," and the symbol for "$" in place of the words "plot," "character development" and "dignity." (Empire)

‘Saw 3-D’ Trailer Hits the Internets http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/saw-3-d-trailer-hits-the-internets/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/saw-3-d-trailer-hits-the-internets/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Saw 3D (a.k.a. Saw VII) has hit the Internet, and it's about what you'd expect.  If you like watching people get butchered in 3D, you'll love it.  If you don't like watching people get butchered in 3D, then you're probably a god damn communist. While this is supposed to be the final chapter in the wildly successful Saw series, I'll believe it when I see it. I thought Jason Goes to Hell would be the final chapter of Friday the 13th.  But eight years later, there was Jason, terrorizing people on a spaceship. Perhaps Jigsaw will somehow visit the crew of seaQuest DSV. I hope so. That talking dolphin needs to be taken down a peg or two. Watch the Saw 3D trailer after the jump.
