Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/{{Mama}}'': A failed attempt in the first few scenes. A drunken man, psychologically unstable and unable to cope with severe financial loss, goes on a spree. Fleeing, he takes his two daughters out on an icy highway and drives at reckless speeds. He inevitably crashes, taking shelter with his children in a small cabin. His daughters look out the window. He holds a pistol. He raises the gun barrel to the back of their heads... but ''something'' doesn't like that ''at all''.

Added DiffLines:

* Deborah and Timothy Nicholls are a rare instance of ''both'' parents doing this. They were drug addicts in severe debt to drug dealing motorcycle gang, so set their house on fire with their three kids inside (whom they had doused gasoline onto) to collect on their life insurance...only to learn afterwards that they had never purchased insurance for the kids in the first place. Initially only Timothy was charged for the murders, but Deborah was also convicted a few years later when evidence popped up. Both received life sentences
