Cohasset Snuff Film, The


Description

An unknown actress is strangled by her jilted boyfriend.

Comments

This is a documentary-style direct-to-video flick that includes found-footage style murders. It’s about a sexually rejected kid who decides to go on a rampage and film his exploits. Unfortunately, this is the movie’s only good death scene but the actress’s performance (and her fantastic rack!) are well worth it.

Fetish Elements

Nudity: Her breasts are visible during first the part of the clip when she’s having missionary sex with her boyfriend, followed by full frontal nudity when she storms out of bed and leaves the room. During the lead up to her death scene, she’s wearing a towel which immediately falls off after she’s attacked, and she remains fully nude during the rest of the scene.

The first part of the clip introduces his girlfriend – a character named Erica who, for some reason, isn’t listed in the credits on IMDb – as they’re having sex. He decides to try some breath play. She freaks, jumps out of bed giving us a beautiful full-frontal shot of her body, and storms out of her bedroom after ordering him out of her house.

Later in the movie – the second part of the clip – he sneaks into her house after watching her parents leave and plants his camera on a stand in her bedroom. The scene then cuts to the camera’s point of view. The girl enters her bedroom while wrapped in a towel, sees the camera, and is summarily attacked by her hiding boyfriend. Her towel immediately falls off and we’re treated to fully nude ligature strangling.

Once she’s dead, the found footage bit cuts to him doing a closeup pan down her body before zooming out. The scene and clip end with a blurred wide shot of her corpse.

Blow Out


Description

Deborah Everton is strangled while brushing her teeth.

Comments

This is the second strangling in the movie and my favorite among them. It was filmed in what I believe is Grand Central Station. It’s one of the best stranglings I’ve ever seen, despite the fact that we don’t see Deborah’s reaction after the initial attack. If I had a Top 5 list of favorite stranglings, this scene would be on it, right under Amy Parrish’s scene in American Gothic.

Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan


Description

Tiffany Paulsen is impaled with a harpoon after Jason finds her hiding place.

Comments

This movie should’ve been called Jason Takes a Boat En Route to Manhattan because 3/4 of the movie takes place on a boat… en route… to Manhattan. I remember seeing the trailer the first time and thinking, “Ooh, asphyxiated socialites!” That’s what I was hoping for, anyway… alas, such was not to be. Thankfully, this scene made up for an otherwise shattered dream of Jason snuffing out New York’s rich and beautiful.

Kelly Hu is strangled while trying to evade Jason in a dance hall.

Comments

I don’t know about you, but when I’m watching a movie in which someone’s about to get killed, I often scan the setting for anything the director might’ve decided to use to kill the character with, all the while getting my hopes up for an asphyxia-related death. When Jason grabbed Kelly’s throat, all I could think was, “Lift her up! Please lift her up!” as if trying to will how the scene played out. Sure enough, up she went, right up against the ceiling. The scene proved to be one of the best I’d seen in the entire franchise. Her performance was spot on. Once she’s dead, Jason just tosses her corpse onto the floor. I once read that was her getting tossed for real.

Most of the lead-up to her death is a needlessly long cat-and-mouse game, so I edited the clip to start just seconds before she’s attacked.

American Gothic S01E20: “Strangler”


Description

Amy Parrish is strangled with her own stocking by the ghost of the Boston Strangler after he talks his way into her home.

Comments

The attack is relatively brief, but Amy is a gorgeous actress who looks stunning as a Nurse with a stocking wrapped around her neck. Hers is my favorite strangling in my entire collection.
