As we are all aware, death is as inevitable as a last gasp Manchester United goal, and probably just as painful.
Throughout the history of cinema, writers and directors have mined their collective morbidity to come up with some particularly horrifying ways of doing folk in.
Join us for a look at some of the most bizarre movie deaths ever commited to celluloid, and pray to Speilberg that when you go, it is in a fashion far less horrid than these poor souls...
The Movie: Billy Peltzer brings home a strange new pet, a Mogwai, for which he is given three important rules.
But silly Billy breaks them all, and inadvertantly unleashes a horde of mischievous, murderous Gremlins on his home town.
Death By: Microwave – Left at home with three gremlins, Lynn Peltzer, Billy’s mother, manages to puree one in a blender and stab a second.
Grisly yes, but then she executes her piece de resistance – exploding the third in the microwave.
If This Was The Real World: Half-baked on whale tranquilisers (or whatever the kids are taking these days), you put the cat in the microwave to warm the little fella up. A pop, a splat and a hiss later, and you've got some pretty serious explaining to do.
