Summer movie body count

”Hollow Man” and ”What Lies Beneath” add to our count of big screen deaths

Posted on

So many corpses, so little time. Since we haven’t tallied on-screen deaths in a couple of weeks, we’ve got a lot of bloody ground to cover: Last weekend, Kevin Bacon’s Hollow Man saw six murders (one drowning, one strangulation, and several stabbings), while Clint Eastwood’s Space Cowboys provided a single, wrinkled stiff. Before that, What Lies Beneath offered two burials, while X-Men scored a mildly heroic six final exits. Kudos to Scary Movie, though, which gave us 18 groan-inducing deaths — including a grandma squashed by a piano and a moviegoer pummeled by a nun. Added to our previous count, this makes for a terrifying total of 435!
