10. The Gristle Gun (eXistenz, 1999)


“The tooth fairy may go into the arms enterprise,” Jennifer Jason Leigh’s Allegra Geller says as she examines an odd gun loaded to the enamel – fairly actually. Holding a row of enamel bullets in her hand, she says with detectable amusement, “Oh look, this one has a cavity.” The Gristle Gun, because it’s dubbed by director David Cronenberg, is only one gonzo facet of his entry within the “killer online game” subgenre, naturally mixing wildly fascinating sci-fi physique horror along with his patent model of goopy sexuality that by no means feels indifferent from the general vibes of the movie. However we’re right here for the gun, which we later watch be assembled from an assortment of bones and gristle earlier than Jude Legislation’s Ted Pikul removes his personal enamel to load into his newly created weapon. It’s an ingenious little cinematic invention that we are able to’t tear our eyes away from, even when we’re justifiably grossed out by its total aesthetic. (Jacob Trussell)

9. The Basketball (Lethal Pal, 1986)

Deadly Friend

Within the mid-eighties, Wes Craven couldn’t catch a break. After the success of quite a few different horror endeavors, audiences solely wished one factor from the director. He tried to ship a bittersweet, sci-fi love story with Lethal Pal, however take a look at audiences rejected Craven’s early cuts of the movie. No blood! No gore! Booooooo! Warner Bros. despatched Craven again to work, asking him to inject somewhat of that crimson stuff. He did so with ridiculous abandon, producing this sequence during which a computer-enhanced and malfunctioning Kristy Swanson hurls a basketball by way of Anne Ramsey‘s cranium, exploding her brains in all places. Two factors. She scores. (Brad Gullickson)

8. The Lawnmower (Useless Alive, 1992)

Dead Alive Horror Movie Weapons

Lawnmowers have been utilized in different horror films to slice and cube victims, from the creepy kills in Sinister to the goofy ones in Blades, however none have wielded it in addition to Peter Jackson. Mama’s boy Lionel is lastly combating again in opposition to the horde of zombies invading his house, and within the large third-act set-piece, which means beginning up his trusty mower and easily eviscerating dozens of shambling, bloodthirsty bastards. Limbs are lopped, faces are frappéd, and after almost three minutes of absolute carnage, our hero is left slipping and sliding on the sloppy viscera. This scene landed the movie within the file books for probably the most pretend blood utilized in a film. Bravo, Mister Jackson, bravo. Now give us the goddamn flick on Blu-ray! (Rob Hunter)

7. The Flesh Gun (Videodrome, 1983)


Enjoyable truth: when Patron Saint of particular results Rick Baker first introduced David Cronenberg along with his concepts for the flesh gun, which included eyes, mouth, and foreskin, Cronenberg mentioned that it was too graphic. Cronenberg. Too graphic. Simply take into consideration that for a second. Anyway, what we get in the long run is the extremely restrained gun that Max Ren (James Woods) pulls from his personal torso slit and that fuses along with his hand, producing a fleshy, oozey hybrid weapon. It’s as gross as it’s inventive, conjuring concepts in regards to the potential for violence that at all times existed inside however has now taken over. Personally talking, the fusion scene can also be one of the crucial unsettling and upsetting issues I’ve seen in a Cronenberg film. Lengthy stay the brand new flesh, certainly. (Anna Swanson)

6. The Sentinel Spheres (Illusion, 1979)

Phantasm Horror Movie Weapons

The Tall Man (Angus Scrimm) can afford to lumber. Doin’ his Martian soiled work are his Sentinel Spheres, these shiny zoomin’ balls that rocket by way of corridors on the hunt for human skulls and the scrumptious blood they comprise. Seeing Illusion at an early age left a long-lasting psychological scar. The scream of the Tall Man’s balls zipping round corners nonetheless lingers behind my mind, within the shadow areas. As does the sound of their little drill, pushing forth and into their sufferer. Watching the movie right now, the cartoonish geyser of blood that ejects from their behind provides somewhat chuckle. Nevertheless, their strategy nonetheless creeps me the frick out. They’re unstoppably inevitable. Whoever hears their whir hears little or no afterward. Right into a bucket ya go. (Brad)
