Death and sleaze index
|03:30||Death by gun (offscreen).|
|06:15||Death by glass.|
|08:15|| Sleaze by swimwear.
Sleaze is one of the toughest things to accurately index as it is often far subtler than a life-changing event such as death. We tend to err on the side of caution: if we're going back and forth on whether something is sleazy, it probably should be classified as such. In this particular scene, we watch someone swimming and then emerging from a pool, backside to us. Since the whole "emerging from a pool" has been sleazed up in numerous other films (and commercials), we're slightly justified in saying that was a goal here. On the other hand, we don't classify background sunbathers as sleaze: they're not "doing anything", the camera isn't lingering lecherously, and there's no cues from other characters that we should be as lascivious as they are.
|09:00|| Sleaze by nipples through clothing.
Sometimes it's hard to tell whether hard nipples are happenstance or intended. Doesn't much matter for the index though.
|09:30||Sleaze by see-through, breasts.|
|12:30|| Death by drowning, snowman.
"Death by snowman" given that Jack's carrot nose was the catalyst, we hear him say "One down, one to gooOoO", and we find out (later) that he can turn into water. It's also hard to believe this guy would have drowned so quickly just by being thrown overboard.
|13:10||Death by icicle, snowman.|
|16:20||Sleaze by swimwear.|
|19:00||Death by anvil, crushing, snowman.|
|19:55||Death by icicle, snowman.|
|20:20|| Death by tongs, snowman.
I seem to remember other tong-related injuries, so let's first-class it, eh?
|29:20||Sleaze by modeling, swimwear, nipples through clothing, ice cube.|
|31:55|| Sleaze by mouth, noise, ice cube.
"Sleaze by mouth" covers the potentially arousing use of tongues and lips (slow applying of lipstick and blotting, chewmoaning an ice cube, etc.) without requiring separate categories (though "sleaze by lipstick" and "sleaze by kissing" are valid too). "Sleaze by noise" is a more generic form of "sleaze by dirty talk" and handles unintelligible sound like moans or screams.
|32:30||Death by head exploding, snowman.|
|32:45||Death by snowman.|
|43:15||Sleaze by skippy dipping, breasts.|
|44:25||Death by drowning, snowman.|
|44:25||Death by frostbite, snowman.|
|51:40||Death by tongue ripped out, snowman.|
|52:20||Death by limb removal, snowball, snowman.|
|52:40||Death by head trauma, snowball, snowman.|
|52:50||Death by icicle, snowman.|
|53:00|| Thrown by snowman?
It's not clear what this quick jump-cut is supposed to say: it doesn't seem like the snowman throws anything at him (though we're given the impression that he does), and there's no blood or snowballs or icicles in any of the frames where he appears. Since there are plenty of more satisfying deaths in this scene, we're not going to index this one.
|53:05||Death by icicle, snowman.|
|53:05||Death by icicle, snowman.|
|53:10|| Death by blunt force trauma, snowball, snowman.
This particular death was a bit of a quandary. First, we see someone in a checked red robe get power punched through a wall after shouting "What the hell is going on?" He apparently lands in some other guy's bed who yells "Oh my god, get outta my bed!". Then, it seems like Bed Man throws Punch Guy back out through the newly-made hole, also shouting "What the hell is going on?" Unfortunately, the Ejected is not the same person as Punch Guy: he's got a mustache and a solid red robe. The whole quick-cutting transition lasts all of four seconds and I think we're supposed to believe it's the original Punch Guy all along.
|53:20||Death by icicle, snowman.|
|1:08:45||Death by icicle, snowball.|
|1:11:45||Death by bite, snowball.|
|1:19:45|| Run, beachgoers, run!
The snowballs attack, but everyone runs away screaming. No apparent on-screen deaths.
|1:22:20|| Bodies montage.
There are numerous quick flashes of unindexed bodies throughout this montage (and even earlier at 58:15), but since they're "just bodies" that we never saw their last moments of, they're not indexable: we always prefer action, not just aftermath. At 1:25:16, our bartender says there are "18 bodies to explain"; up to this point, we've indexed 15 vacationer deaths and 2 main character deaths.
