49. Being stuck inside a doggy door as a garage door opens
As Seen In: Scream (1996)
Wes Craven's clever 1996 slasher classic Scream is many things, but one thing it's most certainly not is inventive when it comes to death scenes. Save for this one exception, the Ghostface killer's attacks are all accomplished with a knife, leaving much to be desired for gorehounds.
That's why Tatum's (Rose McGowan) swan song in the first Scream is a real delight. At first, Ghostface does use his blade, slicing a line down her arm to send a message. Once Tatum tries fleeing through the little doggy entrance at the bottom of the garage door, though, Ghostface takes advantage of the opportunity and opens the electronic door. Stuck in the canine-intended cutout, Tatum can't do anything but, um, scream as her head gets lodged in between the door and the roof.
