Rip your heart out: 14 chest-bursting scenes for V-Day

Posted on

And you thought Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom was the only one! Extra special for Valentine’s Day, Sci Fi Wire has compiled 14 scenes of cinematic heart-ripping. From the aforementioned Mola Ram clip (and the Family Guy take-off) to Lloyd’s samurai daydream in Dumb and Dumber, there’s about every permutation you can think of. As a bonus, they even include an instructional video of how to create a heart-ripping scene by yourself (step 1: Get an old shirt you can ruin.) I can’t help thinking they’re missing some scenes, but all the possibilities that sprung to mind were false leads. Kill Bill: Vol. 2! But no, you never actually see David Carradine’s heart explode. Roadhouse! But no, Patrick Swayze only rips the guy’s throat out. There’s got to be others though. What am I forgetting?
