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.

  • This show is for sadists.

    1000 Ways to Die has a promising premise and a nice campy horror movie feel to it, but it takes such sadistic glee in its subject matter that in the end it just becomes depressing. It might not be so much of an issue if most of these deaths hadn't happened to actual people, but in light of that information it just comes across as cruel when they mock them. It also really bothers me that they try to make the victims unsympathetic so you won't feel bad when they die because almost nobody deserves the deaths this show routinely dishes out, and the effort they put into making the victims unsympathetic just serves to remind me that the real victims were probably perfectly ordinary, totally undeserving people. I can't even comprehend how numb to human suffering one would have to be to enjoy this show without a twinge of regret, and it legitimately frightens me that so many people seem to do so with no problem whatsoever.moreless
  • An Unique concept

    I love how we get to learn unusual deaths. The only feedback is that some of the shooting locations are inaccurate. Too bad we didn't hit 1000 deaths. But we just got enough for me to enjoy. Great job. 97/100 Awesome
  • Not for the faint of heart

    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

    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
