Movies have a way of exaggerating the fears and foibles of our everyday lives. Normally, an operation is a well-controlled procedure with very little risk. But when you’re a character in a movie, any medical procedure is just a pretext for gruesome horror. In this feature, we’ll share the 11 nastiest.
WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGERY
1. Three Kings
George Clooney’s character in Three Kings isn’t a medical doctor, but when a buddy gets shot in the chest he needs to get his hands dirty.
2. Marathon Man
When Dustin Hoffman’s character gets abducted by a Nazi war criminal, the rat viciously drills away at his teeth while mockingly asking “Is it safe?”
An operation room is the last place you want to be when you’re on vacation. Especially when it’s against your will.
