Summer Body Count Awards

Morbid honors for ''28 Weeks Later,'' ''Halloween,'' and...''Mr. Bean''?

How does Hollywood like to kill on screen? We spent our summer counting the ways. Whether it was a pirate being strangled by Davy Jones’ tentacle in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End or Dr. Nick getting impaled by a shard of bio-dome in The Simpsons Movie, the bloodshed was nonstop. Now summer’s over, so we’ve tallied the carnage — and highlighted a few notable endings.
