Pikaaaaa!
^on.no^

Thanx for the new board, Andrew!

Okay, first subject of mine: Exploding heads. Besides SCANNERS, there are plenty of films where people's heads Xplo-o-ODE!

Come on, I'm sure you can think of a couple...

Does it count if they're laser exploded?  If so, I like "Chopping Mall."

Oddly enough, I just rewatched Dawn of the Dead the other night.  You just gotta watch the "shotgunned head" effect in slo-mo.

A couple of heads also explode in Blade, thanks to that anti-hemoglobin stuff.

I addition to the shotgun head effect in dawn I like the one done in maniac especially since its tom himself getting his head blown up.

Night of the Living Dead 1990 - The censored footage of several popping heads are terrific.

Dawn of the Dead, early in the movie when the SWAT team is in the apartment complex.

Does head-crunching goodness count?  Like in Alien Resurrection, when the Alien hybrid chomps on Brad Dourif's head?

Terminator 2, when Arnold blows a hole in Robert Patrick's head, or does that not count because it just liquid metal?

Where do you draw the line here?

Don't forget "Thunder" blowing himself up (complete with bugging eyeballs and steam spewing out of his ears) in "Big Trouble in Little China." He doesn't detonate onscreen and it's a full-body blow, but the graphic head deformation should count...

Also unshown: the live-action (and utterly, utterly awful) version of "Fist of the North Star) has a guy who is forced to keep his head tightly strapped together after Kenshiro zaps him. The strap eventually comes undone, but he squirts offscreen. The anime, of course, is full of poppin' fresh juicy goodness in color.

"Hannibal" doesn't have exploding human heads, but does display, in detail, their insides.

I recall in the beginning of 'The Doom Generation' a Asian man loses his head, which later starts to talk and puke some green @!#$.

The Fly!! The Fly!!  Geena Davis takes the shotgun to Brindlefly with a spraying-spam effect & Gothic music.  Easily my favorite exploding head --

In "Doll Man" the gun he uses can blow a shotgun size wound in a human but you should see what it can do to the other bad guys on his planet. The shots in this movie are funny especially since you hear only 3 gun blasts being fired but the scene itself seems to have several more explosions.

Also "Street trash" has a good scene that is on this site.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
