So Andre Dumas of The Horror Digest has two big fears in this world. Sharks and Vomit. It may sound a little crazy, but somehow she agreed to do a collaboration with me about the best vomit moments in horror history. Maybe we'll make me sit through stuff I hate and do a list of eye trauma, or clowns, lawn ornaments (gnomes) or catching leprosy. Luckily, she's only afraid of real life vomit (and some child scarring scenes from The Sandlot) and sharks don't vom all that often :). Vomit is gross and sick and no one likes it and yet no one really talks about it! So Andre and I are bringing you the greatest instances of vomit known to mankind!
* ** ***
Okay, can't say I didn't warn you...


Every now and then vomit wakes up and comes to realize it's full potential. In the case of Brundlefly, vomit becomes the only way that he can properly eat- and it also serves as an impromptu self defense tactic. You know when a fly lands on a piece of food and it instantly vomits so that the acid can break the food down making it possible to digest? Well imagine that magnified to the nines and then instead of food picture human flesh and.....VOILA! The most deadly form of vomit known to man- well done Brundlefly!

MOST ICONIC VOMIT: Pea Soup Vomit of Demon Regan.

When people think of The Exorcist they immediately think of the Fuck Jesus scene and of projectile pea soup vomit. It's really only more proof that demons are the smartest beings known to man (second maybe only to Velociraptors) - because no one really likes being spewed on. Unfortunately the priest was a little too good at keeping his cool- so that was a bit of a bad luck on the demons part. However this scene also proves that projectile demon vomit can be easily substituted as a weapon in times of great political uprising.

BEST USE OF MISCHA BARTON VOMIT: Vomit of Ghost Mischa Barton.

Remember when the O.C. first debuted and everyone flipped out because they realized that "hottie" Marissa Cooper was the scary little girl from the Sixth Sense? Sadly the scene survives today as Mischa Barton's best acting role to date. However, this particular vomit while extremely thick and pasty looking also had the strange effect of making us feel really sad once we understood why she was vomiting. It's a rare occurence. Also- since when can ghosts puke?


It's common knowledge- well at least to myself- that Eihi Shiina is a hardcore method actress. This of course means that she insisted upon actually throwing up into the dog bowl before feeding it to her victim. That to me is 100 times more frightening than any of the subsequent torture scenes. Also I always wondered if any jokester's were feeling saucy and switched the fake dog bowl of vomit with the real one. That could possibly be a fate worse than death. While no one may enjoy getting thrown up on- I'm pretty sure no one would ever want to eat a steaming bowl of vomit. While we are on the subject however- would you rather eat pea soup demon vom or the milky white vom of Asami? Tough call.

BEST SECRET WEAPON VOMIT: Vomit of Tortured Paxton.

Paxton taught us a lot of things- but perhaps the most useful lesson was; if you are ever being tortured just puke on the floor so that your torturer slips on it while trying to slice you in half with a chainsaw. That Paxton can sure think on his feet. Also bonus points for having a ball gag actually make you gag. That's what they're there for am I right?


Let's face it. Who wouldn't vomit all over the place if a T-Rex was trying to eat you? Not to mention that after that close call, Timmy almost got crushed to death by the car, and then sent over the ledge to his doom- only to be stuck in a giant tree, teetering on a branch- ready to come crashing down at any moment. I'm honestly surprised that Timmy didn't also shit and piss his pants while vomiting. That alone is an accomplishment.

THE SO MUCH VOMIT, IT MUST BE KING: Pie Eating Contest Scene in Stand By Me

While it may serve no purpose to the film other than to make everyone feel incredibly uncomfortable and make fat Jerry O'Connel have a moment of glory, there's so much projectile vomit its almost hard to sit through. This scene may take the cake...err...pie when it comes to ralphing scenes. Couldn't they have done it goonies style and just have the fat kid imitate it rather than show about 50 people puking up blue ribbon rhubarb pies on each other? wouldn't be stephen king then.

Most Finger Lickin' Good Vomit: Zombie chicken eating scene in Poultrygeist

If PETA ever made a horror film to expose the dangerous side effects of the General's chicken...I'm pretty sure it would look something like this. Poultrygeist is already one of the whackiest films I've ever watched, but it does have one hell of a group vomit scene. Vomming on boyscouts, breasts, bikers, and buckets of chicken are exactly the targets I'm looking for when yuking, and thanks to these fine folks I'll have ALL of these options! It's okay though, if vomming isn't your can lay a zombie chicken egg. It's cool.


Lucio Fulci may in fact be the sickest and coolest motherfrencher to ever make a movie. Not only does this poor chick bleed from the eyes and literally puke her guts out, but she has no control over it! Could you imagine just hanging out in your boyfriend's car when suddenly you start bleeding from the eyes and pouring your intestines and organs out of your mouth? How freaking embarassing. I mean I wig out when I have something in my teeth, but pouring your stomach out of your mouth is just so NOT attractive.

BEST VOMIT THAT LOOKS LIKE PROTEIN: Chocolate Chip Charlie in The Stuff

So when we die, we apparently shit ourselves. That's incredibly awful and such, but what about puking up what looks like jizz while your head deforms and falls off in half? Chocolate Chip Charlie was that awesome stereotypical urban character but NOOOOO he had to eat "The Stuff", and what happens? He pukes out some white nasty vomit and his head rips itself in half. Way to go dumbass. You were the best character. Ugh.

BEST VOMIT CAUSED BY A RED HEADED STEPCHILD: The Rollercoaster Scene in Problem Child 2

So it isn't horror...screw me, this kid was a bow tie away from being a killer kid. However he speeds up a roller coaster and induces a puke fest from a bunch of over sugared children. For someone like Andre, this could be disasterous. I mean, I've seen drunken puke sessions in my presence but if some rotten ass ginger kid caused a fat kid in a striped shirt to puke on me when I'm trying to enjoy a bootleg carnival ride...I'm going to be a little more than pissed.

So good it's real Vom: Cannibal Holocaust- Real Vom during turtle murder.

Too horrible to Talk About Vom- Tamara: Advanced Bulemia takes it's toll, ends up looking like dog poop mixed with blood.

Real Life Vom (too scary for me) Hatchet: Adam Green wanted real vomit so Joel Moore delivered--with two takes.

Best Milk Spitting Demon Vom on Record: The Evil Dead- Enuf said.

I can't believe she didn't Vom Vomit---Migg's Jizz on Clarice's Face.

Great work from the both of ya. I'm glad the Cannibal Holocaust turtle vomit squeaked in :-)

Big Daddy D-Bone said...

Pretty awesome list. Can't think of anything important that you guys missed. I've always loved the Mischa puke though. Thick and chunky with a fucked up looking texture. Anyway, keep up the good work.

Christine Hadden said...

That City of the Living Dead one gets me every time. And you know, I do believe that those were actual sheep intestines she puked up. Gah!

Great post!

B-Sol said...

The guts were real, but I think in the scenes where they're coming out of her mouth, it's actually a fake head, not the actual actress.

Adrian said...

Very fearful images mate. I love horror movies very much and blog is perfect horror related

ghidorah said...

Nice pick, but I'm surprised not to see the vomit scene in Monty Python's "The Meaning of Life" mentioned.

A little mint sir?

Unknown said...


This is the most impressive compilation I think I've ever seen!

I'm going to hurl now, but I'll videotape if for Andre.

Never forget this famous puke moment

Robyn74 said...

Great list, but I'm more curious about the photo of the dog and cats and person eating noodles. Did you just need to look at something cute before we witnessed all that barf?

BJ Colangelo said...

@ghidorah-we tried to stick as close to horror as humanly possible :)

@robyn-i thought it was cute and it looked kind of like the dog was puking up the cat a'la drag me to hell

cerebus660 said...

How about The Amityville Horror for Best Nun Puking Out Of A Car Window Award?

The Film Reel said...

How can you beat any list that has City of the Living Dead, The Stuff and Poultrygeist in it.

I think the cute cat and dog pic should have been at the end though, all that puke left me needing something to quell the storm in my stomach!

the jaded viewer said...

Nice include on vomit from The Stuff...a total under the radar flick.

Unknown said...

I work in the medical field. I don't mind terribly helping people who have pissed themselves. I have learned to squelch the gag reflex helping people clean up diarrhea messes. But vomit and mucus make me gag my head off. Yuck!

Kristi Nommensen Dorson said...

What about Poltergeist II, when Craig T. Nelson drinks the tequila worm (GAG, that's enough to make ME vom right there!) and later vomits up an entire CREATURE? That's a winning vomit scene right there!

Also, I have a recollection of watching a really, really BAD movie back when I was a young teen, and all I really remember about it is you knew people were f'ed up by some demons when they spewed. There was a lot of chunky, milky spew in this movie. That's about all I remember.
Oh hey! I love the internet. It was called "Demon Wind" and they even have a picture of some spew action here:

PS I have a friend who has a severe vomit reaction. She throws up every time she sees someone throw up. Even if it's on screen. And I swear to god, I never noticed vomit in movies so much as I do when Donia is sitting next to me, lol.

Scott Harrison said...

I don't think it was the ball-gag that made Paxton vomit in Hostel, I'm pretty sure it was the working chainsaw an inch from his face that finally scared him into vomiting!
