It Doesn’t Get Any Worse: The 20 Most Wince-Inducing Movie Castrations

10. Killer Condom (1996)

Killer Condom

The Movie: Adapted from Ralf König’s 1987 comic book Kondom Des Grauens, Killer Condom details the final chapters in the career of Luigi Mackeroni (Udo Samel), a hard-nosed bear of a cop who foils a conservative Christian conspiracy to castrate the degenerate denizens of New York City using genetically-engineered prophylactics dentata.

The Scene: A college professor takes a student to a sleazy hotel and propositions her to bump her grade up to a pass if she will have sex with him. He slips on a condom as she watches horrified and crying. Suddenly the professor is screaming bloody murder. This is the just the beginning. Apparently three other men lost their penises that evening at the sleazy motel. It’s no surprise that Lloyd Kaufman and the folks over at Troma helped distribute this utterly bizarre German schlocker.

9. Dr. Giggles (1992)

Doctor Giggles Scene

The Movie: In 1957, Evan Rendell (Larry Drake) flees after his father is lynched for killing multiple patients in his effort to find a replacement heart for his ailing wife. After 35 years, Evan escapes from a mental institution and returns to town for revenge, killing off residents one by one.

The Scene: One of the most memorable kills of the proceedings is when one of the male characters, Stu, is trying to score with his girlfriend Dianne. Stu enters the bathroom to slip into something a little more “safe.” While he’s getting prepared, Dr. Giggles kills his girlfriend and slips into his bed. Stu returns expecting his girlfriend to be “ready for love.” He slides up through the covers, only to discover the demented Doctor laying where his girlfriend is supposed to be. Dr. Giggles then says in a very soft voice, “I hope you have protection,” while pulling out his sharp scalpel. We then hear a loud scream and cut back to a sheet covering Stu’s missing, bloody, private parts. Talk about whacking off, right?

8. Sin City (2005)

Sin City Yellow Bastard

The Movie: Sin City is by far the best depiction of a comic book that the world of cinema has seen. The film is essentially a living and breathing comic book from start to finish. Director Robert Rodriguez and writer Frank Miller just used the panels of Miller’s original Sin City comic as storyboards for the film and the significant leaps and bounds in digital technology gave them the ability to completely bring to life the world of the story.

The Scene: We first see Roark Junior (Nick Stahl) as he is attempting to rape and kill his fourth known victim – eleven year old Nancy Callahan. Junior is only prevented from carrying out these sickening actions by seemingly the only uncorruptible cop in the city, John Hartigan (Bruce Willis). He does this by shooting off Junior’s ear, hand, and genitals in a bid to prevent him raping any more young girls. Later in the film, Junior once again has his man-pistol removed at the hands of Hartigan, and it’s not a pretty sight.

7. Little Children (2006)

Little Children Park Scene

The Movie: In a suburban town full of perfect parents devoted to rearing their children for Harvard futures, a stay-at-home mom (Kate Winslet) has an affair with an ex-jock, stay-at-home dad (Patrick Wilson) who rebels against his wife’s wishes that he become a big-bucks lawyer. Also in the mix is Ronald James McGorvey (Jackie Earle Haley), a recently released sex offender who isn’t just a pedophile, but he’s also a sexual deviant who is incapable of functioning in society.

The Scene: When McGorvey’s only link to sanity (his mom) dies, he finds himself ravaged by angry neighbors and decides to cut his temptation off at the source. Literally. In the twisted climax, McGorvey confesses that he won’t hurt children again revealing his self-inflicted neutering while standing in the middle of an empty playground. You have to appreciate the effort.

6. Hostel: Part II (2007)

Hostel 2 Castration Scene

The Movie: The setup for the original Hostel was take some dumb Americans and their gullible Icelandic friend, send them to Slovakia on a quest for the elusive vagina fish, and butcher them like the dumb frat boys they are. The setup for Hostel II is to take some dumb Americans (sans Icelandic friend), send them to Slovakia for a weekend trip to a world-renowned hot springs and spa, and butcher them like the spoiled sorority girls they are. Same mayhem, different gender.

The Scene: Beth (Lauren German) goes from being a victim to fully-fledged Elite Hunting customer at the flash of a cussword, butchering her potty-mouthed torturer’s torpid turkey with one swift hack and then feeding it to the bloodhounds.
