Yes, there are a couple of obvious choices in CineFix’s countdown of the “top 10 horror movie deaths of all time”—how could such a list be complete without Marion Crane’s still-shocking death in Psycho? But what makes the movie buffs’ video particularly fun is the combination of cheeky commentary and hard horror history they use to back up their picks.
