Hawaii Five-O S04E03: “Wednesday, Ladies Free”

Description

An unknown actress playing a Nurse is hand-over-mouth (HOM) suffocated upon returning home from work. The killer then carries her to her bedroom, lays her on her bed, puts makeup on her, and leaves her posed corpse to be found later.

Comments

Love the simultaneous two-prong approach of suffocating and strangling.

Alone (2002)

Description

An unknown actress playing a Hooker is suffocated by a John when she tries to seduce him while he’s watching a news report about one of his victims.

Edits

There’s a brief shot of the inside of a toilet bowl right as the killer vomits into it when things start getting hot between him and the hooker he picked up. I removed it.

Comments

I like the juxtaposition of her death as reflected in the TV during the broadcast but I wish we’d gotten at least one direct shot of her during the struggle. Nevertheless, it’s a terrific scene.

Shape Stalks, The (Halloween Fan Film)

Description

Katie Tuck is hand-over-mouth (HOM) suffocated while watching TV.

Edits

There are two expository scenes in which we’re introduced to her boyfriend’s younger sister who he then tucks into bed. I removed them.

Comments

Excellent scene. I especially love how Michael put his other hand atop her head mid-struggle to reinforce his leverage. That was a really nice touch. I only wish she’d been barefoot – I’m not a sock fan.

The full 10-min short film was produced for and posted on YouTube in October 2018.

Looking Glass


Description

Jacque Gray is hand-gagged and suffocated after making out with her lesbian lover.

Edits

As good as this scene is, it’s marred by frequent cuts to Nicholas Cage’s character making love to his wife. I removed them all.
