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

99. Getting stabbed to death by an ear of corn

As Seen In: Sleepwalkers (1992)

Didn't mom always say that corn was good for one's health? Well, Stephen King isn't one for promoting vegetables as part of a balanced diet.

In the forgettable, poorly made 1992 horror pic Sleepwalkers, written by King (certainly one of his career's low points), one unlucky cop takes his final breath after the shapeshifting she-devil Mary Brady (Alice Krige) jabs him in the back with a fresh, ready-to-eat ear of corn.

No question, all of heaven's residents who were sent there by shiny knives and blades will be standing at the pearly gates, ready to diss the hell out of the poor bastard who got bested by a barbecue side dish.
