The Late Movies: Watch Six People Get Their Hearts Ripped Out

Erica Palan

Happy Valentine’s Day, _flossers. Instead of the usual roundup of love songs (or worse: breakup songs), I thought we’d get a little gory this year. Thus, I present you with six awesome scenes of people getting their hearts ripped out.

The Simpsons

In this 1992 episode titled “New Kid on the Block,” Bart falls for Laura Powers. She doesn’t really feel the same way.

The Sword and the Sorcerer

Though this film has gone on to become a cult classic, Variety gave it a negative review.

Mary Shelley's Frankenstein

There is something strangely unsettling about Robert DeNiro ripping out Helena Bonham Carter’s heart.

From Dusk Till Dawn

Vampire-on-vampire crime.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

Mola Ram rips out a heart in the ultimate sacrifice to Kali.

Mortal Kombat

No, it’s not really a movie. But don’t tell me this doesn’t bring back memories.
