I've been contemplating movies and themes lately and think I've started something here. As my partner-in-crime, my husband, is a gorehound I've been subjected over the years to an amazing number of rather gory horror movies. In this process I've discovered that a popular method of torture/death in said gory horror movies is eyeball popping. So I've come up with a list of movies with great eyeball centered gore. If there are more you can think of, please add.
The Beyond by Lucio Fulci - Ah, The Beyond's tarantulas eating eyeballs. Truly disturbing and memorable and chock full of eyeball eating.
Evil Dead - Having seen this again on the big screen recently I was reminded of how funny and gory this film is. The eyeball popping is not the most memorable, but there is a noted scene.
Marebito - there is an early eyeball stabbing scene.
Phantasm 2 - Some of my husband's favorites from back in the day. I actually sat through all 4 of them. These movies may have been something when they came out, in retrospect - not so much. The fact that blood was banana custard color didn't help. Eyeball popping however, did. One of the few films that the gore did help.
So - what are your favorite eyeball popping, gouging, poking, eating, rolling scenes in horror cinema?
