100 Most Depressing Movie Death Scenes will sink your heart into the Swamp of Sadness

Who needs a big, long cry? You? Then strap in — this collection of the 10 most depressing movie death scenes is just the ticket for an uncomfortable teary moment at the office. Go ahead you big baby, let it all out. Don't act like you didn't lose it the first time you saw Artax sink into the mud. ARTAX! ARTAX!


IMPORTANT UPDATE: Since this movie is not embeddable (oof) you have to click on the youtube link to watch it. I know, I know, but it's still totally worth it.

There's a whole list of each movie over at Movie Miscellany.



So basically, a bunch of otherwise unrelated scenes in which people (or the occasional animal) die, likely edited together by someone who worked at a Blockbuster between 1998 and 2007, or thereabouts.

None of them are particularly sad, though. The saddest death in movies ever is Slim Pickens in Sam Peckinpah's Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid, and the fact that it's not included in the list of "most depressing deaths" is inexcusable. Let me fix that for you.
