Did you like Elvira's death scene?


It was gruesome, but makes me wonder, was this made to be "intentionally funny", or Craven really wanted to shocked his audience?

I think I'd prefer the original death scene they filmed - with Elvira being thrown through a door

Probably the best death scene they ever made for horror films.

There's something wrong with Esther.

Probably more intentionally funny if anything.

The only thing I didn't like about the death was when Elvira was stumbling around like a chicken in my book. Sorry, it's just I'm not big on the whole "humans moving around after losing their head like chickens" thingy in films, but that's just my personal preference.

I would've liked it better if they went with the other death - Elvira gets smashed into a door.

I thought the close-ups of Anne Ramsey's face were very effective.
