Quotes: Cruel and Unusual Death
He don't deserve no mercy
We ought to shoot him with a gun
But I am not an evil man
So first let's have a little fun

We'll tie that scoundrel to a rope
And throw it overboard
Drag him underneath the ship
A terrifying deadly trip
Alestorm, Keelhauled

Can't even shout, can't even cry
The Gentlemen are coming by
Looking in windows, knocking on doors
They need to take seven, and they might take yours
Can't call to Mom, can't say a word
You're gonna die screaming, but you won't be heard
Buffy, "Hush"

"You could initiate a horrifying fury that would terrorize even the Grim Reaper - and you don't even want to fuck with that mack daddy."
Bludworth, Final Destination

When Beyond Birthday committed his third murder, he attempted an experiment. Namely, to see if it were possible for a human being to die of internal hemorrhaging without rupturing any organs. Specifically, he drugged his victim so they fell unconscious, tied them up, and proceeded to beat their left arm thoroughly, being careful not to break the skin. He was hoping to bring about enough hemorrhaging to cause death from loss of blood, but this attempt ended, sadly, in failure. Blood congested in the arm and it turned purplish red beneath the skin, but the victim did not die. He simply shook, convulsed, and remained alive. He had been convinced the blood loss incurred was enough to kill someone, but apparently he had underestimated the matter. As far as Beyond Birthday was concerned, the actual method of murder rated fairly low on the amusement scale, and it was never more than an interesting experiment. It did not particularly matter to him whether it succeeded or not. Beyond Birthday simply shrugged, and took out a knife...
Death Note, Another Note: The Los Angeles BB Murder Cases pg 9 (Leaping over the Moral Event Horizon in the first paragraph)

Know about Bluhm? ...They dragged him into the desert, cut out his tongue, chopped off his manly apparatus and stuffed them where his tongue had been. Then they crucified the poor bugger. Pathologist's opinion is he was still alive when they nailed him up.

The last guy to whack one of Vasquaz's boys had his mouth filled by a Mauser clip and his gums glued up before they set another note to his head.
Tanner, Driver 2

Of all the methods I employ, this is perhaps the cruelest, causing my victim’s body to shrink on itself, crushing bones and rupturing organs ‘til the pressure inside burst the sac of fleshy skin, spraying its contents for all to see.
Kain, Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain

Death by scratch-and-sniff? What the hell happened to people shooting each other with guns?
Emerson Cod, Pushing Daisies

"The sentence of the Law in your case is, and this Court doth adjudge,

That you be drawn upon a hurdle to the place of execution; that you be there hanged by the neck, but not until you are dead; but that, being alive, you be cut down, and your bowels taken out and burnt before your face; that your head be severed from your body, and your body divided into four parts; and that your head and quarters be disposed of as the King shall think fit: and may the Lord have mercy on your soul!"
—Sentence given to Francis Henry De la Motte and others in the British history for High Treason

"He should be thrown alive to the crocodiles! An anaconda should strangle him slowly! A poisonous spider should sting him and paralyze his lungs! The most venomous serpent should bite him and make his brain explode! No — panther claws should rip open his throat — that would be much too good for him! Huge red ants should piss into his lying eyes and gobble up his balls and his guts! He should catch the plague! Syphilis! Yellow fever! Leprosy! It's no use; the more I wish him the most gruesome deaths, the more he haunts me."

"Those of us who are not claustrophobes are aerophobes. Others are afraid of the dark, other don't want to be burned to death. It's extraordinary; they got together every horror in the American psyche and sprang it on us."
Gore Vidal on the September 11th World Trade Center attacks

I can't believe Father Martin one-upped Jesus Christ himself in shitty ways to die.
Miles Upshur, Outlast
