Cruelest Action Movie Death Ever?

It’s tough to choose what the cruelest movie death is; I don’t necessarily mean the most violent. I’m talking about a character who hasn’t done anything to warrant such a brutal death which makes you feel really bad for them.

At first I thought Alex Murphy in the original RoboCop which to this day is a tough scene to watch; or even the kid getting torn apart by vampires in From Dusk Til Dawn. But for me though, I always thought Andy Serkis’ death in Peter Jackson’s King Kong was one of the most horrible ways to go.

After he and the rest of the group have fallen into a pit filled with giant insects Lumpy (Serkis) starts to battle Carnictis; horrible, icky slug-like creatures. Lumpy puts up a good fight and takes them on with his bare hands and a machete. Sadly for poor poor Smeagol he can’t fight them off and they attach themselves to his legs, then his arms so he can no longer fight them off. Then one of the creatures begins eating his head… while he is still alive.

All we hear is his muffled screams and to this day it’s a scene that haunts me. There are more violent deaths and like I said Murphy in RoboCop is more shocking but this to me is the ultimate nightmare.

We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.
