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.
