Here at AC we’re in favor of obsessions. A life without passion is a life half-lived.
So huzzah for the dedication of The Bodycounters, who catalog the death counts of most of your favorite flicks following a strict set of self-imposed rules such as, “Dream sequences do NOT count, but flashbacks DO.”
The entries range from informative to richly descriptive. For instance, nouveau cult film Zombie Strippers killed off 43 people and a fly — pretty straightforward. However, the report for the spoof Kung Pow: Enter The Fist chronicles an intriguing hodgepodge of deaths: “43 people, a dog, 2 moths, a big toe, a stomach plug and one French alien UFO.”
Note well the 007 films, which specify how many of James Bond’s love interests get whacked, and also Samuel L. Jackson’s movies, which include a count of the number of times he utters his famed compound curse word.
They count, so you don’t have to … though now you may be inspired to play along at home.
