View Full Version : Painful ways to be murdered

I think being stabbed would be the most painful way to be murdered. That first plunge of an ice-cold blade ripping into my flesh. And then slashing into the soft tissues of my adam's apple and face, especially around the eyes.

What do you think would be a painful way to be murdered?

To wake up from the nightmare of life that I had assumed to be a dream to discover not relief but nothing at all. The murder would be the act of being 100% convinced (by whatever external force of convincing) that the enforced anticipation of that form of waking up a few seconds before I actually wake up to find my enforced anticipation was indeed about to be borne out.

Sorry, Barry, I just realised that what I just said makes no sense at all!Thanks for the update, des. I kept thinking that if I read it one more time I could follow the logic. Then again, maybe getting lost in the mirror cycle of life/dream/murder/rebirth was your subconscious intent. For me, the mood conveyed was evocative of a panic attack on an existential level.

Barry,

No method is pleasant or preferable. Slow vivisection has to be my number one selection for my own most painful murder. (I never thought that I'd type a statement like that.) What a gruesome way to go. Messy, too.

I think being eaten alive would be rather unpleasant

Fire, bad LSD, a blunt axe, asphyxiation, flaying, needles, a nice rusty razor...

Some combination of those.

Ha. Good to know we can always count on Barry to bring out the cheerful topics ;)

I'd have to say the most painful way to snuff it, in my opinion, would to be murdered by some one you trust or a loved one. Imagine the bitter cocktail of pain and utter disbelief! The last word to pass your lips or flash across your brain would be simply, "Why?".

I think my last word, if that were to happen, would be "Asshole"...or something of the sort. But "Why?" would definitely be said at some point during those last moments

Most painful? Being eaten alive by a pack of wild hungry dogs with rabies... A friend of mine was practically mutilated whole by a single dog years ago (he's still recovering) and he tells horror stories about it.... and we're talking about an ordinary "civilized" dog who just went ape#### on him.

That or being lectured on 19th century post colonial social studies, whatever variety of pain you find of your fancy :wink:

I've always sympathized with victims of brutal stabbings myself. I cannot imagine the physical pain of a knife tearing through your flesh. Wow, I just really psyched myself up for the day!

Wow. That's a tad surreal. If you rule out Mi-Go and the Whateleys, that's just plain weird.

Maybe I'm very different from most of the other members of this website but No work of fictional or theatrical horror even matched my reading of a popular history on the battle of Verdun in France in the First World War. In an area only 47 square miles in size (That's the size of the city of San Francisco) millions of men killed each other for almost a year. Over a million men died and several million others were wounded - some horribly. I think that more than any painful way to die that the situation at Verdun, where all around you were murdered daily by artillery and machine guns month after month, season after season, is by far the worst possible. Sometimes it is much worse to stay alive.

It's weird, I remember hearing about a guy who got stabbed in the back and said he thought he was just punched and it wasn't that painful but yet did do damage on him. Maybe he was just lucky to not feel the pain that bad.

I've heard the same and in my current line of work, the pain felt by even a really deep dog bite is very peculiar in that the initial feeling isn't really pain as one might imagine it to be. It's more of an extreme, jolting pressure that overwhelms you and is accompanied by a panicy, " I know something horrible just happened but I can't process it quickly enough" feeling. The worst pain comes the following day, when every heartbeat sends a giant surge of excruciating pain to the wound, and then back through your entire body just for ####s and giggles.

When I worked at a shipping facility during high school I always feared being pushed into the trash compactor. I couldn't help but imagine what each body part would feel and sound like while being slowly crushed under the constant pressure.

Physical pain: I've been reading some things on Mexican drug cartels, and there's evidence suggesting some of them have boiled people while alive and conscious. I can't imagine a murder more painful than that.

Otherwise I'll go with the pantheistic route as related by With Strength I Burn. That does sound awfully awful.

I have to say that having seen many a beheading video, primarily those propagandized by ISIS recently, that having your head slowly cut off might be right up there. Especially when the executioner indifferently cuts the throat of the victim, partially bleeds them out, then proceeds to completely remove the head of the victim. Aside from such a death being perpetrated against another provoking the most primal of death fears, it seems to me that it must be extraordinarily horrifying and painful. Sorry to be so graphic, but you asked. ;)

The East Asians have a similar execution method called "Lingchi":

The way some wasps lay their eggs. As in have some sort of creature lay its eggs inside you and have them eat their way out. The obvious inspiration to the film Alien.

That reminds me of a horror story I read long ago: a queen ant personified kidnapped travelers and pierced their toe with a needle, then she put an ant egg inside and sealed the wound with a tight iron slipper. The ants eventually grow big and burst outside the horrified victims' mouths and eyes.

That is one of the reasons Charles Darwin cited when asked why he gave up his belief in a benevolent god.


The Brazen bull captured my imagination. Along with being cooked alive, to know that your death agony would be part of the evening's entertainment wouldn't go down too well with me either.

Death by burning is supposed to be the most painful execution type. But at least it's quicker than being eaten alive by a cancerous growth. The most fear-inducing way of dying? Being eaten alive by internal parasites. Ugh.

Maybe not painful, but definitely cruel hearted: the other day I had nothing better to do, so I watched a few ISIS execution videos (Or was it Al-Qaida? I don't know.). One of them showed this poor devil being buried alive, vertically. By that I mean his head was sticking out while the rest of the body lay buried on standing position.

He's just screaming his lungs out, yet the executioner starts piling dirt over him, eventually covering his mouth and nose. The little sounds he made were horrible and the way his head shook until buried was shocking.

Poor guy, really. What a rotten way to go.

You have to give it to Charlie Brooker. White Christmas was disturbing, regardless of obvious plotholes. It was even worse if you factored the millions of years that little torture was to last. I actually had a nightmare about time and eternity that night. I even wrote a note about it in my meager journal.

Death by a thousand cuts, the Chinese way, tied to a post in a public place as the executioner cuts off parts of you, piece by piece, an ear, a lip, a finger, the nose, as you eventually pass out from the pain and bleed out. There is a picture sequence in a book by Georges Bataille, I forget the title, that shows this form of slow death graphically.

I believe it's called Lingchi.

Not only is it painful, but it's a special type of humiliation.

In his book, which again I forget the title, Bataille points out the ecstatic expression on the victims of Lingchi or death by a thousand cuts, as evidence that sexual ecstasy and pain are the two sides of the same coin, pleasure and pain are twins of the same phenomena. He used the photographs taken in 1905 just before its abolishment. As the great Malcolm Lowry wrote once, "How alike are the groans of love to those of the dying."

There's actually a photo of Travis Alexander, a principled religious guy who, like all healthy principled religious men liked women, staring into the camera right before he is massacred by Jodi Arias. Just the anticipation of a chick like that moving toward you with a butcher knife has to be very, very painful.

I remember there was a controversy about that. Susan Sontag too mentioned the ecstasy of being flayed alive.

On other hand, this looks like a painful way to die.

Something along the lines of having your eyelids cut off and being tied to a stake in the middle of the desert so you are forced to stare at the sun. Oh, and the stake is planted in an ant bed and your body is covered in honey.

Being kidnapped, trapped for weeks, raped and died with a bottle in your anus.

I remember the first time I read about The Family Murders in Australia, I was upset for days. I couldn't comprehend how such sufferings were possible even though I had read numerous murder cases before. Even now I couldn't understand it.
