    The horror purists love their butcher knives and machetes, but there is so much more out there. And these nine films managed to work in some really creative kills.

    Freddy's Razor Glove - A Nightmare on Elm Street
    Christmas Light Electric Chair - Silent Night
    Belt Sander Teeth Cleaning - Hatchet
    Microwaved Baddies - Gremlins
    The Captive Bolt Pistol Is Stunning - No Country for Old Men
    Lionel Fires Up the Lawn Mower - Dead Alive
    You Name it, FD Kills With It! - Final Destination Series
    F**k it! An Insane Sex Toy - Se7en
    Giant Ceramic Penis Statue - A Clockwork Orange

    Some honorable mentions need to be recognized, such as the cotton candy gun from Killer Klowns from Outer Space and the cricket bat used to dispense zombies in Shaun of the Dead. Also, the garbage disposal used to unhand William Devane in Rolling Thunder was a unique choice indeed, and we must tip our caps to the Saw franchise for using blades, barbed wire and butcher knives in tons of new and exciting ways.
