Sorry if i go over old ground & something that's been discussed here before,
Haven't read Everything on offer here just yet...so don't know if this has been spoken about before...
But here's a topic i thought would be interesting:
In your opinion...
What is the worst Death in a 'fantasy type' Film?
...As in poor,Un-believable,badly done?
My vote is:
"The Sword and the Sorcerer"
There is a scene where an Evil Blacksmith is at a grinding wheel & there is a fight & the Baddie Blacksmith Jailer type
has his head forced into the grind stone wheel...cue lots of brain & gore.
Only thing is...IT'S POWERED BY A PEDAL & THE BADDIE IS STILL PEDALLING WITH HIS OWN FOOT !!!
WTF ?!?!?!!! Why the Hell would he keep working it himself,to kill himself?!!?!?!!!
...How Very Poor !!!
Talk about insulting your audience!
(Although as a youngster,i probably didn't spot that & i thought the film was cool with the Sword & crucifixtion nail pulling scene)
But it hasn't aged well at all,whereas "CONAN" still looks good today.
Mainly because it's not over the top...the realistic looking 'fantasy' period it's set in is believable.
& the Snake effects are still great,better than ton's of CGI crap today & the fight scenes & action has the right amount of adult gore.
Heads & arms being lopped off,etc...& the music is Totally AWESOME !!!
Love the atmospheric soundtrack music used at the Village scene at the start with 'Franco' as a Scout...
Pity about PG friendly 'Conan the Destroyer'...even "Red Sonja" was better & more watchable than that !!!
Anyway...back to my question...
Can you guy's remember any other such terrible Death scenes in these type of films or any other genre of movies?
