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

37. Being burnt alive while trapped inside a tanning bed

As Seen In: Final Destination 3 (2006)

In the Final Destination universe, it's not the token black character who dies first, or early on—more often than not, it's the token babe. Case in point: Final Destination 3, which dispatches two ladies, Ashley and Ashlyn (Chelan Simmons and Crystal Lowe) before the half-hour mark. Take heart: Mary Elizabeth Winstead makes it to the final scene, so that's a nice consolation.

As for Ashley and Ashyln, their need to fake-bake turns them into overcooked grizzle. Lying in tanning beds—topless, of course—Dumb and Dumber end up trapped inside the scalding cocoons through a Rube Goldberg-esque series of only-in-Final-Destination-movies happenings. Once the temperature exceeds 350 degrees, the light bulbs pop, skin bubbles, and the poor gals are covered in flame showers. Who would've thought skin cancer would ever be the preferred option?
