"You're gonna die screaming, and I'm gonna watch."
"I'm gonna punch you in the ovary. That's what I'm gonna do."
"I must break you."
"Don't mess with the bull, young man. You'll get the horns."
Some memorable movie threats induce chills. Others make us laugh. Check out this supercut of the 100 greatest movie threats of all time and see if you can identify all of the movies featured in it, and if your favorite movie threats made the cut.
The supercut manages to capture some great movie moments, and some threats that remind us of just how bad things got when the threatener makes good on their promise. Among some of the great movie moments featured, O-Ren Ishii's boardroom scene from Kill Bill, Vol. 1, Barry Egan's "That's that" threat from Punch-Drunk Love and Gordie's face-off with Ace in Stand By Me ("No Ace. Just you."). There were some great funny threats in there, including a couple of Home Alone scenes, Ron Burgundy's threats to Veronica in Anchorman and Michelle's rant in Tommy Boy. Fargo probably also qualifies as funny. Everything that came out of Steve Buscemi's mouth in that film was darkly humorous.
Among some of the other movies featured were Taken, Full Metal Jacket, Pulp Fiction, The Wizard of Oz, Major Payne, Scarface, The Goonies, Goodfellas and Cape Fear.
If there was one threat I kept waiting to hear and was a little disappointed not to see in the 11+ minutes of movie footage, it was this one.
