* A very unpleasant RealLife example from ''Film/HiroshimaMonAmour'', courtesy of stock footage of casualties from the 1945 nuking of Hiroshima. A doctor is shown using clamps to pull open a woman's eyelids, revealing her burnt-out husk of an eyeball.
* ''Film/ShutterIsland'': "If I sink my teeth into your eye right now do you think you can stop me before I blind you?"
* ''Film/BlackDynamite'' has a case of this, wherein the titular character sits atop a helpless goon, mid battle frenzy, and shouts "Do you see where I'm coming from you jive motherfucker?!", proceeding with a lethal technique from the school of ''Film/TheThreeStooges''.
* In the 2012 movie ''Film/WouldYouRather'': Lucas is forced to slit open his eye or be shot in the head. He follows through but he won't be needing an eyepatch though.
* In ''Film/KevinAndPerryGoLarge'', a character named, appropriately enough, Eyeball Paul is such a raging alcoholic he does shots of vodka through his eyeball, just to get a buzz.

** The Joker makes a pencil disappear into one of Gambol's goons… and it wasn't even the ''pointy end'' of the pencil. "TA-DA! It's, ah, it's gone."
** The half-burned-off Harvey Dent's face featured a completely exposed eyeball without a lid. Think about how vulnerable that must make his eye.
* In the Director's Cut of the first ''Film/{{Hellboy}}'' movie, during Rasputin's resurrection scene, his face is never shown on-camera, but instead a shocked Ilsa asks "What have they done to your eyes?!" Though Rasputin wears very dark sunglasses thereafter, a later scene (also exclusively in the Director's Cut) shows Rasputin putting in a pair of glass eyes, implying that his original eyes were already gone when he first came BackFromTheDead.
* The Spanish film ''Film/JuliasEyes'' has one scene of a knife edging closer to an eye and another of a needle actually being stuck into it.
* ''Franchise/EvilDead'' films:
** Ash puts both the eyes out of a Deadite by gouging them out with his thumbs in ''Film/TheEvilDead1981''.
** And in ''Film/EvilDead2'', an eye pops out of its socket while the head it belongs to is being crushed in a cellar door. The crew calls this the [[BloodyHilarious "Eyeball… flyball!"]] moment.

* ''Film/MissionImpossible'' had that elevator scene. [[spoiler:The character on top of the elevator which suddenly starts rising looks up into some mysterious spikes and… yeah.]]
* ''Film/MissionImpossibleII'' has a moment where a knife stops just millimeters away from Tom Cruise's eye. This was no effect; they actually stabbed at the stuntman's eye with the knife, and it actually went that close. Sure, they had a frame rigged up with a rope so it couldn't stab him, but still.
* The Australian film ''Film/{{Kokoda}}'' has a nasty example where an Australian solider, who's been hiding under a log for some time, finally rolls out… to see a Japanese soldier waiting for him, rifle (with a bayonet on the end) at the ready… the suspense builds up as the blade hovers in front of his face for a bit and then… Shhhk!
* ''Film/JurassicPark'': [[FatBastard Nedry]] is sprayed with a good dose of venom in his unprotected eyes. [[spoiler: He loses both the can of dinosaur embryos and his life when the dinosaur sneaks into his van]].
* ''Film/KillBill'':
** The Bride plucks out the eye of one of the Crazy 88s during the bloodbath at the House of Blue Leaves, which prompts a black-and-white filter for the next few minutes. The uncensored, full-colour, extended version of this scene takes it even further when the Bride throws said eye down another mook's throat.
** Elle revealing that Pai Mei [[DisproportionateRetribution plucked out one of her eyes for insulting him]] (which is the reason we see her with the cool pirate-style [[EyepatchOfPower eyepatch]]), and that [[spoiler:she killed Pai Mei in retaliation by poisoning his fish heads. When she and The Bride face off and [[BladeLock lock swords]], the Bride takes advantage of the moment to pluck out Elle's remaining eye and then ''crush it under her bare foot'']].
** And then there's the bit where Budd keeps the Bride from resisting being buried alive by threatening to spray a whole can of Mace into her eyes. "Burn 'em right out of your head." It includes an extreme close-up shot that shows the can's nozzle ''very'' close to her eyeball.
* An early example of the effectiveness of this trope is an early scene in the French surrealist flick ''Film/UnChienAndalou''. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bXlzvvTHg7k Woman. Eye. Razor blade. Nothing more needs to be said.]] (Movie fun fact: They pulled that scene off with a bit of legerdemain and a cow's eyeball.) Not surprisingly, this film was made by Creator/LuisBunuel. A later scene with the same woman takes place eight years later and she's fine, so we can think the operation (or whatever) was a success.
** The British film magazine ''Magazine/{{Empire}}'' went through a phase a few years ago where they seemed to include that frame somewhere in every other issue… In the establishing shot that poor actress actually had a razor blade held close to her eye.
* ''Film/MinorityReport'' has John Anderton getting his eyes taken out and replaced by a creepy back alley surgeon (Peter Stormare!) because, TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture, [[BorrowedBiometricBypass retinal scanning]] is everywhere. For added ick, he carries the old eyes around ''in a plastic bag'' to get into places where he used to have security clearance. And as if that isn't enough, his ex-wife even uses his old eyes to get access to parts of the pre-crime facility she wouldn't be able to get to otherwise. When she casually drops them on the table in front of one of the technicians when she's asked about it…
* A particularly wince-worthy scene in ''Film/GangsOfNewYork'' has Bill the Butcher tap a knife to his glass eye. The film makers pulled it off with an extra-thick contact lens, but you've got to wonder about how committed to his craft Daniel Day-Lewis was feeling that day, especially since it was a ThrowItIn.
* ''Film/EventHorizon'' practically runs off of this trope, and might hold some kind of record for most empty eye sockets in a movie. The film's most memorable (and terrifying) line says it all:
-->'''Weir:''' Where we're going, we won't need ''eyes'' to see.
** Weir's dead wife. Eyes? What eyes?
* ''Film/OnceUponATimeInMexico'' had [[spoiler:Agent Sands]] getting his eyes gouged out by Dr. Guevara. We're treated to a nice first-person view of the drill-extractor-thing they use slowly approaching his eyes, but fortunately not of the operation itself, as the screen [[NothingIsScarier cuts to black when the drill bits occupy almost the entire screen]]. He manages to compensate for this by becoming a badass blind gunfighter near the end of the movie. In the last scene of the movie, we're treated to a very gratuitous scene of the empty innards of his eye sockets…
* As if plucking out a guy's eye through a crack in a boarded-up door wasn't enough, one of the monsters in ''Film/{{Feast}}'' went on to [[spoiler: play tug-of-war with the guy for possession of the eyeball until its optic nerve snapped]].
* Myca, the creepy [[BrotherSisterIncest sister/lover]] of Top Dollar from ''Film/TheCrow'', had a thing for people's eyes. We didn't get to see her actually take the eyes out, but we are shown the scene of her dropping a pair of eyes onto a little dish, watching them sizzle into goo. It made the scene in which she had little Sarah in her clutches ("Her eyes are so innocent.") especially creepy. [[KarmicDeath Her comeuppance is appropriately karmic]] — she gets her own eyes pecked out by the titular crow before falling to her death.



* ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact'':
** Picard's nightmare about his Borg assimilation experience ends with a scene of a sharp probe approaching his eyeball. To make it worse, in the split second before the scene ends, we actually see the needle touch his cornea and make it flex a bit.
** All of the Borg assimilation montages included a shot of a needle going through an eye. Probably justified, since nearly all borg have only one eye visible, the other covered/replaced by some kind of mechanical thingie.
** In the assimilation montage during the movie we see a female proto-drone (former Starfleet officer) whose left eye has been replaced by a mechanical interface for the eye-probe — if that's not bad enough there are traces of blood on the eyelid.

** A sequence in ''Film/SawIV'' involving a pedophile/rapist and a choice: either use this diabolical device to stab your own eyes out, or get torn limb from limb.

* An early example of the effectiveness of this trope is an early scene in the French surrealist flick ''Film/UnChienAndalou''. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bXlzvvTHg7k Woman. Eye. Razor blade. Nothing more needs to be said.]] (Movie fun fact: They pulled that scene off

* The Italian director/screenwriter Creator/LucioFulci was quite fond of this motif. Quite a few of his horror films, such as ''Film/TheBeyond'', ''Film/TheNewYorkRipper'' and ''Film/{{Zombi 2}}'' contain scenes involving injury to the eye. ''Zombi 2'' is the most infamous: [[spoiler:a woman is killed by a zombie pulling her head forward until ''she gets a wooden splinter through the eyeball'']]. All in agonizingly slow Suspense-O-Vision, with many shots from the woman's point of view. The buildup to the big moment lasts a full 20 seconds, and is rendered slightly ridiculous by the fact that the woman involved has both her arms free and ''doesn't even attempt to struggle.''

* The British crime film ''Film/HorrorsOfTheBlackMuseum'' has a scene in which a woman is shown with blood running between the fingers pressed to her face, followed by a shot of binoculars with '''spikes at the eye-pieces'''. It is allegedly based on a real case.
** In the real case, the booby-trapped binoculars were sent anonymously to a young woman's birthday party. Luckily, her father started fiddling with the focusing dial ''without'' looking through them, so no one was hurt when he triggered the mechanism.
** A similar pair of eye-stabbing binoculars was used in a Michael Slade novel, ''Ghoul''.
* In ''Film/{{The Phantom|1996}}'', there's a scene where the BigBad preps a fake microscope that has blades come out of the eyepieces when properly adjusted. He gets a librarian he suspects of doublecrossing him to look into the microscope and adjust it to look at "the sample"; when it's properly adjusted, the word "LIAR" comes into focus. Cue screams.

** In ''The Return of the King'' the filmmakers were very worried that the audience would sympathize with the Oliphaunts, thinking it wasn't their fault that Sauron's army was using them. Even after giving them the sound of a lion's roar rather than an elephant's trumpet and inserting numerous shots of the Oliphaunts deliberately stomping on Rohirrim, they still had to remove a shot of one of them getting hit in the eye with an arrow before they were satisfied the animals would not get undue sympathy.
** Meanwhile, in ''The Two Towers'', during the siege there's a quick shot of a man shouting an order to archers on the wall, with only a wide gaping hole in his right eye socket. The real treat is that it's ''not'' a special effect - he was originally just an extra with an eyepatch, but when Peter Jackson & Friends asked to see what was underneath, they decided it was so shockingly awesome they ''had'' to show it once. The extra described the experience of having the eye patch off on film as being very cathartic.
** Legolas shoots orcs through the eye on a number of occasions. This is a departure from the books, where he usually aimed for the throat.
* ''Film/TheMatrixRevolutions'' features a fight between Neo and Bane/Smith. When the EMP beam goes awry and cuts a power cable, Smith jams it in to Neo's face ''effectively melting his eyes.''
-->'''Neo:''' I think you better drive.
* In the Korean horror movie ''Film/TheRedShoes2005'', a character has her face grabbed from behind by the antagonist, who proceeds to jam one of their fingers into the unfortunate woman's eye socket, gouging out her eyeball. It is seen dropping to the ground in a close-up, and the woman's mangled, bleeding socket is shown shortly after.
** In the same movie, the death of another character involved, amongst other things, having the heel of a stiletto shoe ''jammed into his eyeball''.

* ''Film/TransformersDarkOfTheMoon'':
** Done to [[spoiler:Starscream]] when Sam attacks him
the audience would sympathize with the gauntlet Oliphaunts, thinking it wasn't their fault that Sauron's army was meant as a grappling hook for climbing structures. And again when Sam takes out the other eye with an explosive device that ultimately blows [[spoiler:Screamer]]'s head into [[spoiler:the robotic equivalent of]] LudicrousGibs.
** [[spoiler:Shockwave]] also gets slapped pretty hard with this trope, being battered with enemy fire until his [[CyberCyclops single eye]] is left dangling out of its socket. And
using them. Even after ''that'', [[spoiler:Optimus]] rips giving them the whole goddamn thing out ''through his throat''.
** The snipers are trained to shoot out the eyes
sound of a lion's roar rather than an elephant's trumpet and inserting numerous shots of the Decepticons.
* In Creator/LaurelAndHardy's ''Film/TheMusicBox,'' a scene opens with a large packing crate in the foreground. Stanley enters holding a ladder at his side, and there's a painful yell - Ollie rises into scene from behind crate, hand over his eye. Mild example, but - ow!
* In ''Film/CowboysAndAliens'', Jake escapes the alien scientist experimenting
Oliphaunts deliberately stomping on him, slashing out Rohirrim, they still had to remove a shot of one of the alien's eyes. During the climax, the scientist recaptures him and is eager to return the favor.
* In ''Film/{{Exam}}'' Brown tries to [[spoiler:torture information on the question out of Dark]] by holding the corner of a piece of paper up to her eye. [[spoiler:Fortunately, he was only bluffing]].

** Meanwhile, in ''The Two Towers'', during the siege there's
a bottle rocket, he later blows out its other eye quick shot of a man shouting an order to archers on the wall, with the silver bullet.
* There's
only a wide gaping hole in his right eye socket. The real treat is that it's ''not'' a special effect - he was originally just an obvious version and a less obvious version in the ''Film/JoshuuSasori'' series. In the first film, an enraged bully whose scheme has backfired tries to kill Matsu, the protagonist, extra with a piece of glass; she lures her attacker around an eyepatch, but when Peter Jackson & Friends asked to see what was underneath, they decided it was so shockingly awesome they ''had'' to show it once. The extra described the shower area until she appears to be cornered, then dodges experience of having the thrust - leaving [[spoiler: eye patch off on film as being very cathartic.
** Legolas shoots orcs through
the prison warden to take eye on a number of occasions. This is a departure from the glass shard books, where he usually aimed for the throat.
* In ''Film/{{Machete}}'', [[spoiler:Luz]] gets an eye shot out; later, when [[spoiler:she]] emerges from the back of an ambulance, the doctor says "How's the eye?" The response? "What eye?"
* In ''Film/MarketaLazarova'', Mikolas shoots an arrow
straight in the eye]]. He chokes his attacker to death with his bare hands, glass still embedded. By the second film, he has had Matsu imprisoned underground, bound hand and foot, for through a year, but she has used the time to carve a shiv from a spoon by scraping it on the floor with her teeth. At her first opportunity, she goes for his other man's right eye, only just missing. The less obvious version lies in the way that Matsu is frequently depicted with one eye obscured; this is a reference/allusion to {{youkai}} which often only have one eye.
* In fact, it can be almost guaranteed that EyeScream will be involved if there is a cyclops. In ''Film/The7thVoyageOfSinbad'', Sinbad defeats
the first cyclops by shoving a flaming torch into his eye (in a shot shown from the cyclops' point of view, no less!) and then leading the blinded monster off of a cliff.
* A bad guy in ''Film/TheGreenHornet'' is killed by sharpened stakes in the eyes. ''Both'' of them.
* Mechanical example: In ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', poor Threepio, who is [[OnceAnEpisode always losing parts]], has one of his optical sensors ripped out by Jabba the Hutt's pet, Salacious Crumb.

* In ''Film/{{Misery}}'' in the climax Paul almost gouges out Annie's eyes with his fingers.
* In ''Film/FourteenOhEight'', a cleaning lady who found herself locked in 1408's bathroom
camera focuses on for four seconds used a pair of scissors to cut her own eyes out. What had she seen? No one knows. In the short story it was subtler yet in its own way scarier. She simply goes blind while cleaning the room, and yet she says "she's blind, but she can see the most awful colors".
* The Jose Mojica Marins film ''Film/InfernoCarnal'' features a close-up of a scalpel scraping around an eye.

* In an installment of the horror anthology ''Film/TheTheatreBizarre'' entitled "Vision Stains", a young woman goes about murdering homeless women and sucking out the fluid from their eyeballs with a syringe as they take their final breath.

* One victim (played by Ted Raimi, in a cameo) in ''Film/TheMidnightMeatTrain'' is hit in the head with a hammer. The blow is hard enough to send an eyeball flying out. And then his wife slips on it. Given Kitamura's geekery, this was almost certainly deliberate, since Ted Raimi also played the eyeball-popping victim in ''Film/EvilDead2'', as mentioned above.
* ''Film/MinorityReport'' has John Anderton getting his
eyes after taken out and replaced by a creepy back alley surgeon (Peter Stormare!) because, TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture, [[BorrowedBiometricBypass retinal scanning]] is everywhere. For added ick, he carries the old eyes around ''in a plastic bag'' to get into places where he used to have security clearance. And as if that isn't enough, his ex-wife even uses his old eyes to get access to parts of the pre-crime facility she wouldn't be able to get to otherwise. When she casually drops them on the table in front of one of the technicians when she's asked about it…
* In ''Film/{{Misery}}'' in the climax Paul almost gouges out Annie's eyes with his fingers.

* ''Film/MissionImpossibleII'' has a moment where a knife stops just millimeters away from Tom Cruise's eye. This was no effect; they actually stabbed at the stuntman's eye with the knife, and it actually went that close. Sure, they had a frame rigged up with a rope so it couldn't stab him, but still.
* ''Film/{{Morgan}}'' opens with Morgan attacking one of the scientists that helped create her, stabbing out her left eye.

* ''Film/OnceUponATimeInMexico'' had [[spoiler:Agent Sands]] getting his eyes gouged out by Dr. Guevara. We're treated to a nice first-person view of the drill-extractor-thing they use slowly approaching his eyes, but fortunately not of the operation itself, as the screen [[NothingIsScarier cuts to black when the drill bits occupy almost the entire screen]]. He manages to compensate for this by becoming a badass blind gunfighter near the end of the movie. In the last scene of the movie, we're treated to a very gratuitous scene of the empty innards of his eye sockets…

* At the very beginning of the climactic shootout at the end of ''Film/TrueRomance'', [[spoiler: Christian Slater's character is hit with a bullet that grazes his eye. Originally this was going to outright go through his eye and kill him, but ultimately this was changed to said DisneyDeath in order to give the film a happier ending.]]
* In ''Film/SpiderMan2'', this is the cause of [[spoiler:Rosalie Octavius']] death, thanks to Dr. Octavius/Dr. Octopus' experiment. A glass window shatters in front of her, leading thousands of shards of glass to go flying in her direction - we see the reflection of the glass in her eye just before it enters, killing her.
* Subverted in ''Film/JourneyToTheFarSideOfTheSun'' (a.k.a. "Doppelganger"). In the pre-titles sequence, Dr. Hassler (Herbert Lom) goes into his bathroom and pulls out one of his own eyes. It's quickly revealed that it's a false eye, concealing a miniature camera.
* In ''Film/{{Warlock}}'' a seer offers her assistance helping the Warlock find what he is missing. He takes her up on the offer, literally, by taking her eyes. Later, you can see the eyes, with some of her optic nerves still attached, moving in the direction of the Warlock's book.

* ''Film/GIJoeTheRiseOfCobra'': Because of their body armor, the best way to kill Viper Commandos (from the opening battle) or Neo-Vipers is through the eye cover of their helmets. Snake-Eyes and Scarlett are particularly proficient at this, but Duke gets one too.

* In ''Film/TheHobbitTheBattleOfTheFiveArmies'', one of the "weapons" that Azog's army uses is a bunch of cave trolls with their hands and feet replaced with mace-balls and controlled by chains anchored into their eye sockets.
* In ''Film/MarketaLazarova'', Mikolas shoots an arrow straight through a man's right eye, which the camera focuses on for bizarre effect.
* ''Film/ISpitOnYourGrave'':
** In the remake, one of Jennifer's rapists — who has a distinct voyeuristic bent — films the attack. In her revenge kill, Jennifer puts hooks through his eyelids. She later spreads fish guts across his face, leading to crows eating his eyes.
** In another revenge kill, Jennifer puts lye in a bathtub one of her rapists is suspended over and lets him fall in. Cue his face burning off, including his eyes, and even [[TongueTrauma his tongue]].
* Downplayed, in that nothing happens to their actual eyes, but in ''Film/DoctorStrange2016'' all the skin around the eyes of Kaecilius and his followers dies and dries and flakes away, leaving shiny, purple, very sore looking flesh underneath.
* ''Film/{{Morgan}}'' opens with Morgan attacking one of the scientists that helped create her, stabbing out her left eye.
* In ''Film/NextOfKin1982'', Linda stabs [[spoiler:[[BigBad Rita]]]] in the eye through a door peephole using a hat pin.

to:

* Short Film: ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zdj9vMH4BfQ Spider]]'' - "It's all fun and games....until someone loses an eye".
* In ''Film/TheHobbitTheBattleOfTheFiveArmies'', ''Film/SpiderMan2'', this is the cause of [[spoiler:Rosalie Octavius']] death, thanks to Dr. Octavius/Dr. Octopus' experiment. A glass window shatters in front of her, leading thousands of shards of glass to go flying in her direction - we see the reflection of the glass in her eye just before it enters, killing her.
* Inverted in ''Film/TheSpirit''. The Octopus dissolves a [[CuteKitten kitten]]. All that remains are his eyes.
* ''Film/{{Splintered}}'': Near the end, Sophie (the heroine) flees into the woods from the utterly insane, feral man, Vincent, whom his brother, Gavin, locked away to protect her (by keeping her captive) from being killed. She doesn't get far until she falls over and is assaulted by ravenous man, but she lashes out and stabs him several times in the face and eye with her cross necklace. Her attacker dies before she can finish him off by smashing his face in with a rock.
* ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact'':
** Picard's nightmare about his Borg assimilation experience ends with a scene of a sharp probe approaching his eyeball. To make it worse, in the split second before the scene ends, we actually see the needle touch his cornea and make it flex a bit.
** All of the Borg assimilation montages included a shot of a needle going through an eye. Probably justified, since nearly all borg have only one eye visible, the other covered/replaced by some kind of mechanical thingie.
** In the assimilation montage during the movie we see a female proto-drone (former Starfleet officer) whose left eye has been replaced by a mechanical interface for the eye-probe — if that's not bad enough there are traces of blood on the eyelid.
* ''Franchise/StarWars'': ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' has a mechanical example when poor Threepio, who is [[OnceAnEpisode always losing parts]], has one of his optical sensors ripped out by Jabba the Hutt's pet, Salacious Crumb.
* In ''Film/SuckerPunch'', there are several posters in the dance studio that show how doctors would perform a lobotomy, by hammering a piece of metal under the eye to disconnect a nerve. When [[spoiler:Baby Doll is lobotomized she shows no physical after-effects]], but the effect is still there.
%%* And also in ''Film/SuicideKings''.
* In ''Film/TheSuicideTheory'',
one of the "weapons" that Azog's army uses injuries Percival racks up involves him losing an eye--which is a bunch actually rather mild considering this is the only lasting damage from him ''being shot three times in the head''. He wears an eyepatch for the rest of cave trolls with the movie.
* A famous sequence in ''Film/SupermanReturns'' has Supes not only [[ShootingSuperman withstand about 400 rounds point blank from a Gatling gun]], but then the Mook shoots him in the eye and ''[[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome the bullet flattens on his cornea and bounces off.]]''
** The same happens in Creator/JMichaelStraczynski's ''ComicBook/SupremePower'' comic (a DarkerAndEdgier ''ComicBook/SquadronSupreme''); there, Hyperion ([[CaptainErsatz
their hands and feet replaced version of]] Superman) [[http://macheath.reebosak.net/hyperion.jpg does it]] ''[[http://macheath.reebosak.net/hyperion.jpg to himself]]''. Going for the eye is also a favorite information extracting tactic of Nighthawk. "But what if I don't know what you want to know?" "Then I'll apologize. Profusely."
** Above scene is parodied in ''[[Creator/SeltzerAndFriedberg Epic Movie]]'', in which Supes' eye is far less bulletproof.
* ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}'':
** [[Film/TheTerminator The first movie]] had the T-800 (Arnold) cutting its own eye out because it was damaged (and presumably interfering
with mace-balls its vision). We are grateful that they seem to have made this special effect much ''less'' realistic than they could have at the time. [[{{Squick}} Very, very grateful]].
** [[Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay The second]] has the T-1000 stab a security guard in the eye with a blade formed from his finger while impersonating him.
* In an installment of the horror anthology ''Film/TheTheatreBizarre'' entitled "Vision Stains", a young woman goes about murdering homeless women
and controlled by chains anchored into sucking out the fluid from their eyeballs with a syringe as they take their final breath. She then injects said fluid into her own eye in order to see her victims' memories. She ultimately [[spoiler:ends up gouging out her own eyes after she starts to hear voices.]] There is no GoryDiscretionShot.
* In ''Film/TheatreOfBlood'', Vincent Price is a Shakespearean actor who kills his critics by restaging death scenes from The Bard's plays. For his last and worst enemy, he chooses [[spoiler: ''Theatre/KingLear'']].
* In ''Film/TheThing1982'', Gary shoots one of the Norwegians in the eye after he starts shooting at them trying to kill the alien, also later when Palmer is revealed to be the one taken over by the alien his eyes melt out of their
sockets.
* In ''Film/MarketaLazarova'', Mikolas shoots an arrow straight through ''Film/TheThreeStooges'' certainly make eye-pokes business as usual - but one short, ''TheyStoogeToConga'' takes it to another level when Moe gets a man's right eye, which spiked-sole shoe pressed in the camera focuses on eye!
* ''Film/ThrillerACruelPicture'' actually shows an extreme closeup of the protagonist having a scalpel inserted into her eye. Even worse when you know that it was an actual (dead) person they filmed it happening to.
* The opening scene in the original ''Film/TotalRecall1990'' where Arnold Schwarzenegger's character breaks his visor and has his face and eyes blow up due to the Martian atmosphere. "Oh, he looks like a fish!" Fortunately, it's AllJustADream. [[spoiler: Unfortunately
for bizarre effect.
* ''Film/ISpitOnYourGrave'':
** In
the remake, one of Jennifer's rapists — who has a distinct voyeuristic bent — films BigBad, the attack. In her revenge kill, Jennifer puts hooks same can't be said when the same thing happens to him ''for real''.]]
* ''Film/TransformersDarkOfTheMoon'':
** Done to [[spoiler:Starscream]] when Sam attacks him with the gauntlet that was meant as a grappling hook for climbing structures. And again when Sam takes out the other eye with an explosive device that ultimately blows [[spoiler:Screamer]]'s head into [[spoiler:the robotic equivalent of]] LudicrousGibs.
** [[spoiler:Shockwave]] also gets slapped pretty hard with this trope, being battered with enemy fire until his [[CyberCyclops single eye]] is left dangling out of its socket. And after ''that'', [[spoiler:Optimus]] rips the whole goddamn thing out ''through his throat''.
** The snipers are trained to shoot out the eyes of the Decepticons.
* And a similar scene in ''Film/{{Transmetropolitan}}'' where Spider injects some sort of horrifying concoction into his tear duct while listening in on a presidential candidate.
* At the very beginning of the climactic shootout at the end of ''Film/TrueRomance'', [[spoiler: Christian Slater's character is hit with a bullet that grazes his eye. Originally this was going to outright go
through his eyelids. She later spreads fish guts across eye and kill him, but ultimately this was changed to said DisneyDeath in order to give the film a happier ending.]]
* The BigBad of ''Film/{{Undefeatable}}'' is a psycho who kidnaps, rapes, enucleates and kills women. In the [[SoBadItsGood infamous]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxkr4wS7XqY climactic fight]], he karmically loses both
his face, leading to crows eating eyes. Not both eyes at once, mind you. Each one in two separate incidents during the same fight.
* ''Film/UnderSiege'': The first film has a fight scene at the very end, where Segal sticks
his eyes.
** In another revenge kill, Jennifer puts lye in
''thumb'' into the guy's eye right before driving a bathtub knife into his skull.
* The villain of ''Film/UnderSiege2DarkTerritory'' gets the passwords to a computer system from two of his former co-workers by threatening each
one that he would poke the other in the eye with a hot needle. (The two co-workers were sleeping together) The threat included a very graphic description of her rapists is suspended over how the heat from the needle would cause the fluid in the eye to boil and lets ''explode''.
* Two segments of ''Film/VHS2'' feature this:
** The protagonist of "Phase I Clinical Trials" [[spoiler:ends up cutting out his own eye. It just makes
him fall in. Cue unable to see what's attacking him.]]
** The protagonist of "A Ride In the Park" [[spoiler:gets a barbecue-fork in the eye when attacking a parent.]]
* In ''Film/TheVikings'', {{Jerkass}} Viking warrior Einar has
his face burning off, including his eyes, left eye clawed by a falcon and has an ugly cataract for the rest of the movie. Audiences in the 1950s found the scene even [[TongueTrauma his tongue]].
bloodier than it actually was.
* Downplayed, In ''Film/VillageOfTheDamned1995'', a doctor accidentally drops some acidic drops in that nothing happens to their actual eyes, but in ''Film/DoctorStrange2016'' all the skin around the eyes of Kaecilius and his followers dies and dries and flakes away, leaving shiny, purple, very sore looking flesh underneath.
* ''Film/{{Morgan}}'' opens with Morgan attacking
one of the scientists that helped create her, stabbing out ten {{Creepy Child}}ren during a check-up. The ringleader of the kids then uses her telekinesis to make the optician use said drops ''on her own eyes'' over and over, until she's left eye.
permanently blind.
* In ''Film/NextOfKin1982'', Linda stabs [[spoiler:[[BigBad Rita]]]] ''Film/{{Warlock}}'' a seer offers her assistance helping the Warlock find what he is missing. He takes her up on the offer, literally, by taking her eyes. Later, you can see the eyes, with some of her optic nerves still attached, moving in the direction of the Warlock's book.
* In ''Film/{{Wer}}'', Gavin Flemyng did this on purpose to himself. [[spoiler: Because he wants to know if Talan Gwynek the werewolf infected him or not. Gavin is infected, but not as bad as Talan.]]
* In ''Film/TheWraith'' every person, the titular character kills, has their body mostly intact, with their eyes no longer in their sockets.
* In the 2012 movie ''Film/WouldYouRather'': Lucas is forced to slit open his
eye or be shot in the head. He follows through but he won't be needing an eyepatch though.
* In ''Film/XMenFirstClass'', Azazel holds the point of his tail at
a door peephole using a hat pin.
victim's eye.
* The protagonist in ''Film/XTheManWithTheXRayEyes'' finally gouges his own eyes out to stop the visual horrors. Supposedly they cut out the last moment of the film following that for being too shocking: him screaming, "I can still see!"
