Comedy Kill Moves

Catch the All-Star Squad in This Sci-fi Comedy 
Available on Blu-ray and DVD

Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade take male bonding to hilarious new heights in this outrageous, no-holds-barred comedy that gets funnier every time you watch! There’s trouble brewing in peaceful Glenview, Ohio. That’s why four civic-minded citizens, armed with flashlights, walkie-talkies and spiffy new jackets, have teamed up to safeguard their community. But the guys find more than they bargained for when they uncover an alien plot to destroy Earth, and now these bumbling heroes are Glenview’s only chance to save the neighborhood — and the world — from annihilation.

In The Watch, aliens can only be killed by destroying their genitals. Here, we will highlight other hilarious kill moves including throwing records at zombies in Shaun of the Dead and playing Slim Whitman's "Indian Love Call" in Mars Attacks!



Mortal Kombat

1995’s Mortal Kombat is based on a fighting video game of the same name so, naturally, it’s filled with hilarious, almost cartoonish kill moves. In the film, the Lightning God Rayden guides warrior Liu Kang, police detective Sonja Blade, and martial arts movie star Johnny Cage to a remote island to compete in the Shaolin Tournament known as Mortal Kombat in order to protect the future of Earth. The resulting tournament results in many comical kills (intentional or not), including Sub-Zero’s death by freezing/being impaled, and Shang Tsung’s demise at the hands of a lightning bolt and an opportunely placed row of spikes.


Mars Attacks!

In 1996’s Mars Attacks!, aliens come to earth and begin destroying landmarks and the planet’s inhabitants. In one of film’s more creative kill moves, a Kansas teenager discovers that the aliens can only be destroyed if they hear Slim Whitman's "Indian Love Call," and the song is broadcast throughout the planet and into space, saving the earth. Mars Attacks! features an all-star ensemble cast, including Jack Nicholson, Annette Bening, Pierce Brosnan, Sarah Jessica Parker, Glenn Close, Martin Short, Jack Black, Natalie Portman, Danny DeVito, and Christina Applegate.


Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery

Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery is a 1997 film that would spawn many a catchphrase and two successful sequels. The film centers on Austin Powers, a British spy in the 1960s who is cryogenically frozen in order to defeat his archenemy, Dr. Evil (who was also frozen), 30 years later. One of Dr. Evil’s groups of assassins is the Fembots – robots styled to looks like attractive blonde women, whose breasts are actually machine guns. Austin’s kill move of choice for the Fembots? His mojo, of course! Austin’s “sexy” dancing and Union Jack underwear ultimately make the Fembots’ heads explode.  


Shaun of the Dead

The 2004 film Shaun of the Dead spoofs zombie apocalypse films and, of course, is complete with some utterly hilarious and inventive ways to kill zombies. The film follows Shaun, an unmotivated British man and his best friend, Ed, as they try to gather their friends and Shaun’s reluctant ex-girlfriend and family to seek refuge inside their favorite pub. Along the way, Shaun and his friends kill zombies by throwing records at their heads, and by beating them with blunt objects like cricket bats. The ultimate zombie fight scene in the film is also accompanied by Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now,” which adds an extra hilarious twist to all the gory zombie kills.


Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

Who Framed Roger Rabbit? is a 1988 half live action, half animated film which revolves around Roger Rabbit, a cartoon character who (along with many others) exists alongside humans. Roger is framed for a murder, which is at the center of a plot to take over Toontown and erase its inhabitants in order to build a freeway. Because the film uses cartoon characters, there are many hilarious kill moves, including making characters literally die of laughter, and making Toons dissolve by using “Dip” (a mixture of solvents that dissolve Toons).
