What’s going on Butcher Crew?! It’s your Master Butcher, The Saw, and today we will be talking about my favorite scenes that have come from some of my favorite horror movies. It is not a secret that I am a big horror fan, I have to be… I run a Butcher Shop! I also rate movies based on their gore factor, which is a fun hobby of mine when I am not busy in the shop.
There have been some killer (no pun intended) scenes that make me go “oh that’s awesome,” what cinematic masterpieces these movies are. I like the adrenaline that horror movies give me, I like being on edge and trying to guess when jump scares will occur. Horror movies remind me of death metal and studios should totally use death metal songs in their movies, it would work great.
In no particular order, here is a list of some of my favorite scenes within the horror genre:
Halloween – 1978
This scene is awesome. Period. When Michael Myers looks at the guy and tilts his head over to look at his most recent victim is still bone chilling every time I watch this movie.
The Exorcist – 1973
Fun fact: when this movie first came out in theaters, half of the audience left after Linda Blair spun her head all the way around. Although this may seem pretty tame to us horror fanatics now, back in the day, this was terrifying! This movie is what helped launch the horror genre into something scarier.
Evil Dead – 2013
You want to talk about a movie that has a 10/10 gore factor? Then you need to watch the 2013 remake of The Evil Dead. I swear this movie has nothing but gore, and this girl who gets possessed is scary. She makes my skin crawl.
Hellraiser – 1987
You already know that I had to put my boy in here! Honestly, any scene where Pinhead talks is my favorite. He has some of the best one-liners and this is one of my favorites! I love to use his quotes in the Butcher Shop.
Hereditary – 2018
This movie is probably one of my favorite recent horror releases. This movie did something different within the horror genre; they focused more on psychological horror. By that I mean, they put more emphasis on making the overall movie appear dark and you can empathize and feel the emotions that the characters are going through. This movie did a fantastic job at making the audience feel the tension throughout the entire movie. The scene where the mom continuously bangs her head against the ceiling is so eerie.
The Shinning – 1980
