As Seen In: Fargo (1996)
Technically, the wood chipper isn't what kills Carl (Steve Buscemi) in Joel and Ethan Coen's dark comedy classic Fargo—it's the axe that his former crime partner, Gaear (Peter Stormare) swings into him.
Think about it, though: After you die, wouldn't you like to have your body buried in a nice, scenic cemetery, where loved ones can visit and pay their respects? Or, if not a proper burial, cremation, which would allow those same family members to keep your remains in their possession? Either one sounds ideal compared to some low-level crook pushing your dead carcass into a mash-up device that's normally intended for tree branches.
