Mortal Kombat: Annihilation…So many moments in this movie that deserve to be on the list, but this one stands out
In the series finale, all hope of an episode of reminiscing about the humor that made the series a hit was stripped away – as viewers got to watch Earl Sinclair bring about the end of the Dinosaurs by poisoning the world’s plant life and subsequently blocking out the sun. The result of which was global temperatures dropping well below freezing and the imminent extinction of every living thing on the planet.
While every adult watching knew what was happening, their children may have been somewhat oblivious. Luckily, the writers made time in the finale’s last moments to bring everyone in the know as Earl has to explain to Baby Sinclair how there’s no place for them to go and that he’s sorry for killing them all.
This episode was so WTF that TV Guide had to include a special warning that the subject matter in this episode might “frighten or disturb younger viewers.” You know, because children aren’t really used to watching their favorite characters – who were marketed to kids in the form of music videos and stuffed animals – dying a slow death.
The Wandering Soul
“Ghost Tape Number 10” was an audio mix the US military used for psychological operations in the Vietnam War against the North Vietnamese. It played deeply on the Vietnamese belief of ancestor worship, spirits and the afterlife.The Wandering Soul was played on loudspeakers installed on helicopters, PCF boats or by infiltrating infantry ‘loudspeaker teams’ on known enemy areas usually at night deep within the jungle. It exploited the Buddhist belief that once a person dies, his body must be buried in the family plot or his soul will wander aimlessly.
Being a avid horror fan, I can appreciate a scary movie scene when it deprives me of sleep for the next few nights. While this compilation will scare the shit out of 99% of the population, hardcore horror fans can only appreciate the awesomeness of these scenes .
The Conjuring – Annabelle Scene
Heaven’s Gate was a cult whose beliefs were based on UFO apocalypse ideas. It was started in the 70s in California by Marshall Applegate and his wife, who taught their followers that they were extraterrestrial “walk-ins”; beings that had possessed or inhabited a human frame. They demanded a total hand-over of their followers’ material possessions and believed that the Earth was nearing its end – was going to be “recycled” by alien forces – and that the only way to survive this was to leave the planet. To do so, they believed that it would be possible to vacate their human bodies and spiritually enter a spaceship that was trailing the comet Hale-Bopp, which would take them to the “Next Level”. 39 of them went along with this, taking their own lives in March 1997. Only one member of the cult survived, Rio DiAngelo, who had agreed to remain behind on Earth to propagate the group’s teachings. Fingers crossed he doesn’t have too much success.
BAMBOO TORTURE & EXECUTION
Flaying is where a bamboo shoot is slowly grown through the body of a victim, reportedly used in East and South Asia. After World War II, stories circulated of Japanese soldiers inflicting “bamboo torture” upon U.S. and Allied prisoners of war, where the victim was tied securely in place above a young bamboo shoot. Over several days, the sharp, fast growing shoot would first puncture, then completely penetrate the victim’s body, eventually emerging through the other side. The cast of the TV program MythBusters investigated bamboo torture in a 2008 episode and found that a bamboo shoot can penetrate through several inches of ballistic gelatin in three days. For research purposes, ballistic gelatin is considered comparable to human flesh, and the experiment thus supported the viability of this form of torture, not its historicity. In her memoir “Hakka Soul”, the Chinese poet and author Woon-Ping Chin mentions the “bamboo torture” as one of those tortures the locals believed the Japanese performed on prisoners. This tale of using live trees impaling persons as they grow is, however, not confined to the context of WWII and the Japanese as torturers, but was recorded in the 19th century, when Malays alleged the Siamese used (among other punishments) the sprout of the nipah palm in the manner of bamboo torture during the 1821 Siamese invasion of Kedah. A “Madras civilian”, in his travel description from 1820s India, said this use of bamboo was a well known punishment in Ceylon.
A widower takes an offer to screen girls at a special audition, arranged for him by a friend to find him a new wife. The one he fancies is not who she appears to be after all. Hailed as one of the most disturbing horror films ever made.
Let the Right One In
An overlooked and bullied boy finds love and revenge through a beautiful but peculiar girl. The American remake is good, but the original is definitely superior.
