The 100 Worst Ways to Die (As Seen in Movies)

52. Meeting a TV, headfirst

As Seen In: A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors (1987)

The funniest of all horror movie villains, Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) can't resist a one-liner when doing his dirty work. Arguably the best of Krueger pun is the one that caps off poor Jennifer's (Penelope Sudrow) death in the underrated A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors.

Taking a smoke break, the mental patient surfs the channels before landing on a bland talk show that livens up once the host turns into Freddy. Jennifer inches closer toward the tube to inspect, when Freddy's heads pops out of the television set's top, his arms protrude from its sides, he grabs her, and rams her head into the screen.

The punctuating quote: "Welcome to primetime, bitch!" How can you not love that?
