    Mine would have to be that classic scene in Dawn of the Dead wherein a zombie gets the top of his head shaved off by whirling helicopter blades. [​IMG]

    The first thing that came to mind was "Scanners". When that first guys head exploded I think my jaw actually dropped!!

    "Alien" chest buster immediately comes to mind also.

    Any of the goo spilled in the original Evil Dead. [​IMG]
    If we're talking most memorable kills, I've always had a soft spot for Friday the 13th Part 2; machete in the face, throat slit upside down, etc.

    Is "The Final Chapter" part IV? If so I love the scene where Jason gets it in the head and than his face slides right down the machete. [​IMG] Tom Savini is THE MAN!

    Derek replacing his brain in Bad Taste. It makes me squirm like nothing else.

    Frank's death in Hellraiser is a classic moment in splatter history... [​IMG]

    While my tastes in Horror films lean more towards sublime & gothic tales. For splatter I'd go with the already mentioned Alien chestburster or the Dawn of the Dead headshaver scenes. Most other pure splatter films do nothing for me so my exposure is rather limited. [​IMG]
