12 Gruesome Horror Scenes Where Someone Loses a Head

One of the classic scenes in any horror movie (especially slashers) is the good ol' decapitation scene, where a head goes flying. And for the 24th of our 31 Days of Halloween feature, we've gathered some of the best.

From blood spurts to spraying ax chops, there are tons of different takes on the classic beheading that have been put to film over the years.

It's interesting to watch how different films handle the head chop, from gratuitous to mildly realistic. You can tell a lot about the movie you're watching by how the director chooses to lop off a head.

The story is too old to be commented.
