1000 Ways To Die

Show Summary

Death is the ultimate unknown; something we both fear and are intrigued by. 1000 Ways to Die chronicles the last moments of people who met an untimely demise by making bad choices or through sheer bad luck. As well as being horrifying and morbidly funny, 1000 Ways to Die is also educational and recreates the scenes using state of the art CGI graphics animation.

  • Not for the faint of heart

    8.5
    A show of reenactments of some truly bizarre deaths that range from grisly, ironic, to just plain unfortunate. Some morbid/dark humor is in it. Sometimes the person was some jerk, creep, or evil person who deserved it. Others were ignorant, unlucky, careless, or just plane dumb. (Quite a few of these are Darwin Award Yet the reason for the death is always explained even in gruesome detail. By all means I don't enjoy others suffering and dying, but I do know that the human body is quite fragile and life can end in a number of ways and many of these deaths were preventable. Quite a few simple things had caused death. Still I found it fascinating but graphic. Don't watch if you get sicken or distressed easily.moreless
  • The one reason for me to watch spike TV

    I heard this got cancelled because the actors went on strike or something. Too bad, this show was way cool. The announcer cracks me up sometimes.
  • Gotta Love Karma

    10
    Before Bar Rescue, 1000 Ways To Die was my favorite show on Spike. It almost always showed a jerk, moron, or very evil person die in very gruesome ways, usually as an act of Karma itself or the persons own stupidity.



    Sometimes the actors in some stories have weak acting skills, but like stories in porn, we don't care about the acting, we just want to see the action. And the acting is still good enough so we know we want the person dead.



    As a person dies from the misfortune, there are people who comment on the science of the death. Also, while this show is violent and gruesome, it is also a way to teach us not to be so stupid and as Ron Perlman stated, 1000 Ways to Die is a guidebook on how to live.moreless

    This is my favorite show, I believe that most of us got to learn to do good all the time and don't do stupid things because you will pay with dead. sounds horrible but it may happened to anybody it is like Karma. anyway it is pretty entertaining and different.
  • Really among the few shows on Spike that didn't suck ass!

    I loved watching this show. Not so much that so much that I like graphic violence, but I found the deaths to be fascinating to watch, and the tongue-in-cheek approach to it was all the more entertaining. Up until the producers and stars of the show ran a strike against Spike demanding more money and Ron Perlman was no longer the narrator anyways. Why couldn't Spike spike just increase their salary like they wanted? Wasn't the show making them enough money. After all, let's face it, violence sells. I'm sure whatever money they were pocketing could've gone into the staff's salary and funding for more episodes. What a shitload of fuck. :(moreless
