    Again I apologize for my English I try to make my best for you to understand this.
    One of the reason I love horror movies is for the way they can make the killing. I enjoy the stories, characters, monsters and special efects in this movies. So when I see a killing in the movie some times is to wonder how it can be done and is amaze how they can do to make realism. Some times you can see is a dumby or fake dolls they use but some times is very well done and shock because you dont expected or because is so real. I want to now what is some your best memory of killing in a movie. For effective or for realism or for disturbing you. Or maybe not so much for violence but a killing that you always to remember because the way is effecting you or for very good special effects work.

    Thank you.

    While it's not the most realistic killing in film, one of my favorite scenes has always been the gunshot in Opera. When I first got my bootleg copy of that back in the late '80s, I showed that scene to everyone I knew. It is just so wonderfully orchestrated. Truly like a ballet of violence.

    That was the first scene that came to my mind as well. There is simply no better.

    the film with the most realistic death scenes to me are in The Last house on the Left. Some of them have a lot of gore (the disembowelment scene) while some do not (the dick bit off) the deaths are very effective and really chill you to the bone.

    The one that made me feel dirty: fire-extinguisher scene in irreversible.

    The first scene that pops in my mind is the fire extinguisher scene in Irréversible. That definitely made me like "whoa". Awesome :D

    Vinnie Jones in Midnight Meat Train with his Hammer. Pretty funny/cool wreckage he did on some heads

    The opening double murder in Argento's SUSPIRIA is quite shocking and very stylish.
    The infamous eyeball/splinter in Fulci's ZOMBIE (aka ZOMBI 2) is most memorable.
    Makeup guru Tom Savini considers THE PROWLER to contain some of his best work.Great effects.
    The finale of Brian DePalma's THE FURY is a corker.

    THE SLAYER ('82) and HIDE AND GO SHRIEK both have fun decapitation scenes.

    Made me think of the pitchfork scene in The Slayer. That was pretty good.

    Check out the Vincent Price films THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES and THEATER OF BLOOD for some really fun death sequences. It's hard to pick one death specifically. They're all really good.

    Captain Rhodes getting torn apart at the end of Day of the Dead comes to mind. I had to fast forward threw that sequence when I was a kid because it scared the hell out of me.

    Jason beating the girl in the sleeping bag against the tree always did it for me.

    I've always said the out of control "stair-climbing chair" scene from Gremlins will long reign as my favorite death/killing scene in film history.

    The most impressive scene of gore I think I've ever seen is the vein/tendon slit/cut/walking sequence in A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors. Also worth mentioning is the famous arm-chopping / blood-spraying scene from Argento's Tenebre.

    And the only death scene that almost made me cry was Betsy's in Piranha. Never doubt the power of a horror film to get to you. Sometimes they sneak right under the radar.

    I never really like that scene for Gremlins, I always found it anti climatic, as I have always wanted to see her get it a lot worse. After watching the main characters mom get attacked and bloodied, and the the neighbor and his wife get run over by a truck, it just seemed like she got easy for being the wicked witch that she was.

    As for my favourite kill... off the top of my head:

    Friday the 13th franchise - pretty much any kill from this series is great
    The Burning - the canoe scene triple kill
    Halloween 2 - hot tub face boiling kill
    Deep Red - bath face boiling, end kill with the elevator and decapitation
    Suspiria - opening kills
    City of the Living Dead - guts puke up, power drill kill
    Zombi - wood splinter in the eye
    The Intruder - I remember a lot of good kills in The Intruder but can't think of any one specifically right now

    Inside and Haute Tension have some very effective death and gore scenes. Inside made me more uncomfortable than anything else I've seen.

    All of the killings in all of the Sleepaway Camps. It makes murder seem so, oh, what's the word I'm looking for? Oh yeah: FUN!
