View Full Version : Most ominous-sounding threats made by people in movies

I always love it when someone in a movie makes a really evil and scary-sounding threat to another character. Here are some of my favorite examples:

David Lynch's Dune - towards the end of the movie the Guild guy visits Emperor Shaddam IV and says: "Remedy this situation! Restore the Spice production...or you will live out your life in a pain amplifier!"

I especially love this one because you don't know what a "pain amplifier" is. (This is a very effective technique for making something more dramatic, actually. Like the line about the C-beams and the Tannhauser Gate in Blade Runner - you're never shown what that is exactly, so your imagination fills in the details.)

And, in There Will Be Blood, Daniel Plainview is talking to the guy from the rival oil company and all of a sudden says something like, "I'm going to come into your house while you sleep and I'm going to cut your throat." That one's pretty good too, but it's not as sinister sounding as the "pain amplifier."

Vandamm: Has anyone ever told you that you overplay your various roles rather severely, Mr. Kaplan? First, you're the outraged Madison Avenue man who claims he's been mistaken for someone else. Then you play the fugitive from justice, supposedly trying to clear his name of a crime he knows he didn't commit. And now, you play the peevish lover, stung by jealousy and betrayal. It seems to me you fellows could stand a little less training from the FBI and a little more from the Actor's Studio.

Roger: Apparently, the only performance that will satisfy you is when I play dead.

Vandamm: Your very next role. You'll be quite convincing, I assure you.

Prince Humperdinck: First things first, to the death.
Westley: No. To the pain.
Prince Humperdinck: I don't think I'm quite familiar with that phrase.
Westley: I'll explain and I'll use small words so that you'll be sure to understand, you warthog faced buffoon.
Prince Humperdinck: That may be the first time in my life a man has dared insult me.
Westley: It won't be the last. To the pain means the first thing you will lose will be your feet below the ankles. Then your hands at the wrists. Next your nose.
Prince Humperdinck: And then my tongue I suppose, I killed you too quickly the last time. A mistake I don't mean to duplicate tonight.
Westley: I wasn't finished. The next thing you will lose will be your left eye followed by your right.
Prince Humperdinck: And then my ears, I understand let's get on with it.
Westley: WRONG. Your ears you keep and I'll tell you why. So that every shriek of every child at seeing your hideousness will be yours to cherish. Every babe that weeps at your approach, every woman who cries out, "Dear God! What is that thing," will echo in your perfect ears. That is what to the pain means. It means I leave you in anguish, wallowing in freakish misery forever.
Prince Humperdinck: I think you're bluffing.
Westley: It's possible, Pig, I might be bluffing. It's conceivable, you miserable, vomitous mass, that I'm only lying here because I lack the strength to stand. But, then again... perhaps I have the strength after all.
[slowly rises and points sword directly at the prince]
Westley: DROP... YOUR... SWORD!
Prince Humperdinck: [Humperdinck's mouth hangs open, drops sword to floor]

Marty Augustine (Mark Rydell) in the underrated The Long Goodbye.

Augustine brings his girlfriend over and starts telling Marlowe how she is the most important thing in his life, complimenting her on her beauty, and tenderly saying how much he loves her.

They he smashes a bottle into her face.

As she stands bleeding and whimpering, he turns to Marlowe and says, "You, I don't even like."

That was Unforgiven with Clint playing Will Munny-

Will Munny: All right, I'm coming out. Any man I see out there, I'm gonna shoot him. Any sumbitch takes a shot at me, I'm not only gonna kill him, but I'm gonna kill his wife, all his friends, and burn his damn house down.

Not a direct threat but rather describing a threat posed by a third-party:

"Listen, and understand. That terminator is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead." -- Kyle Reese in The Terminator

My life has taken another turn again. The days can go on with regularity over and over, one day indistinguishable from the next. A long continuous chain. Then suddenly, there is a change." -- Taxi Driver

Vito Corleone: "I make him an offer he don' refuse. Don' worry." -- The Godfather, Part II

Al Capone: "I want you to get this fuck where he breathes! I want you to find this nancyboy Eliot Ness, I want him dead! I want his family dead! I want his house burned to the ground! I wanna go there in the middle of the night and I wanna piss on his ashes!" -- The Untouchables

Max Cady: "I am going to teach you the meaning of commitment. Fourteen years ago I was forced to make a commitment to an eight by nine cell, now you are going to be forced to make a commitment. You could say I'm hear to save you." -- Cape Fear

Neil McCauley "What am I doing? I'm talking to an empty telephone...'Cause there is a dead man on the other end of this fuckin' line." -- Heat

Sam: "What's the color of the boathouse at Hereford?...What's the color of the boathouse...What's...you got the gun. I'm unarmed. Do something. Go ahead. Do something. Do something!" -- Ronin

From There Will be Blood, I prefer "If you've lied to me, I'm going to find you and I'm going to take more than my money back."

"I'm going to get medieval on your ass."

"If you want your friend to hear you, you'll have to talk a lot louder than that," from Snatch.

Also from Unforgiven:

Little Bill Daggett: You'd be William Munny out of Missouri. Killer of women and children.
Will Munny: That's right. I've killed women and children. I've killed just about everything that walks or crawled at one time or another. And I'm here to kill you, Little Bill, for what you did to Ned.

Just about anything he says, but in particular:

Mason Verger: I guess now you wish you would've fed the rest of me to the dogs.
Hannibal Lecter: No, Mason, I much prefer you the way you are.

I particularly remember just as he has about to hang the Italian policeman, "Tell me who you told about me, and I won't eat your wife."

Clint Eastwood always has a bunch of good ones:

Heartbreak Ridge
"Well, well, well, well. I'm here to tell you that life as you knew it has ended. You all may as well go into town tonight. You may as well laugh and make fools out of yourselves. Rub your pathetic little peckers against your honies or stick it in a knothole in the fence but whatever it is, get rid of it. Because at 0600 tomorrow your ass is mine. Now it's my will against yours and you will lose. So don't forget, 0600. That's six o'clock in the morning for those of you who don't habla."


Unforgiven
"I've killed women and children. I've killed everything that walks or crawls at one time or another. And I'm here to kill you, Little Bill, for what you done to Ned. "

My Favorite: Beverly Hills Cop, the scene where Eddie Murphy and his friend have been caught in the warehouse with the villian's drugs:

Axel Foley: If you hurt her, I'm gonna kill you.
Victor Maitland: That would be a neat trick.

I like implied threats. I read Get Shorty a long time ago and I remember Chili Palmer saying he never makes direct threats. He lets his victims fill in the gaps with their imagination, making his job of getting info/money from them all the easier.

"Only one human captain has ever survived battle with a Minbari fleet. He is behind me. You are in front of me. If you value your lives, be somewhere else." : Abassador Delenn, Babylon 5

"Please accept my assurances that no personal animosity of any kind is intended towards any of you. Nonetheless it appears, unfortunately that I must now go forth and destroy your respective worlds. Perhaps you would like to draw straws, to determine where I might best start." : Tuf Voyaging

"You're the one don't understand. You got a week. and if you haven't got at least thirty pages of manuscript, I'll be coming for you, hoss. Only it won't start with you-that'd be too easy. That'd be entirely too easy. I'll take your kids first, and they will die slow. I'll see to it. I know how. They won't know what's happening, only that they're dying in agony. But you'll know, and I'll know, and your wife will know. I'll take her next...only before I take her, I'll take her. You know what I mean, old hoss. And when they're gone, I'll do you, Thad, and you'll die like no man on earth ever died before." The Dark Half

"This never happens again," I said quietly. "You try to get to me through other mortals again and I'll kill you."

Mavra's rotted lips turned up at one corner. "No, you won't," she said in her dry dusty voice. "You don't have that kind of power."

"I can get it," I said.

"But you won't," she responded, mockery in her tone. "It wouldn't be right."

I stared at her a full ten seconds before I said, in a very quiet voice, "I've got a fallen angel tripping all over herself to give me more power. Queen Mab has asked me to take the mantle of Winter Knight twice now. I've read Kemmler's book. I know how the Darkhallow works. And I know how to turn necromancy against the Black Court."

Mavra's filmed eyes flashed with anger.

I continued to speak quietly, never raising my voice. "So once again, let me be perfectly clear. If anything happens to Murphy and I even think you had a hand in it, fuck right and wrong. If you touch her, I'm declaring war on you. Personally. I'm picking up every weapon I can get. And I'm using them to kill you. Horribly."From Dead Beat.

Since my movie quote memory storage is low, all I could come up with was

"My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die!"
—Princess Bride

So I checked a few sites and found these gems:

"The fact that you've got 'Replica' written down the side of your gun and the fact that I've got 'Desert Eagle point five O' written on the side of mine should precipitate your balls into shrinking, along with your presence. Now... Fuck off!" (Snatch)

"Wendy...darling... light of my life...you didn't let me finish. I said, I'm not gonna hurt you.... I just wanna bash your brains in!"
(The Shining)

"And just about the time I'm comin' out of jail, hopefully, you'll be coming out of your coma. And guess what? I'll split your fuckin' head open again. 'Cause I'm fuckin' stupid. I don't give a fuck about jail. That's my business. That's what I do."
Casino


"I will PT you until your assholes are sucking buttermilk!" - Gunnery Sergeant Hartman (R. Lee Ermey), Full Metal Jacket

You and that other dummy better start getting more personally involved in your work, or I'm gonna stab you through the heart with a fuckin' pencil. Do you understand me?" —Midnight Run

And this one from science fiction, from Roger Zelazny, I think — arough quote from memory:

Anton Chigurh: The most. You ever lost. On a coin toss.

Gas Station Proprietor: I don't know. I couldn't say.

Anton Chigurh: Yes.

Gas Station Proprietor: For what?

Anton Chigurh: Just call it.

Gas Station Proprietor: Well, we need to know what we're calling it for here.

Anton Chigurh: You need to call it. I can't call it for you. It wouldn't be fair.

Gas Station Proprietor: I didn't put nothin' up.

Anton Chigurh: Yes, you did. You've been putting it up your whole life you just didn't know it. You know what date is on this coin?

Gas Station Proprietor: No.

Anton Chigurh: 1958. It's been traveling twenty-two years to get here. And now it's here. And it's either heads or tails. And you have to say. Call it.

Gas Station Proprietor: Look, I need to know what I stand to win.

Anton Chigurh: Everything.

Gas Station Proprietor: How's that?

Anton Chigurh: You stand to win everything. Call it.

Gas Station Proprietor: Alright. Heads then.

[Chigurh removes his hand, revealing the coin is indeed heads]

Anton Chigurh: Well done.

[the gas station proprietor nervously takes the quarter with the small pile of change he's apparently won while Chigurh starts out]

Anton Chigurh: Don't put it in your pocket, sir. Don't put it in your pocket. It's your lucky quarter.

Gas Station Proprietor: Where do you want me to put it?

Anton Chigurh: Anywhere not in your pocket. Where it'll get mixed in with the others and become just a coin. Which it is.

It wasnt Shakespeare, but of course his delivery was golden.

Speaking of Shakespeare, Henry V is gold:

The Duke of Exeter explaining to the King of France what will happen if he doesn't surrender the crown:

Bloody constraint; for if you hide the crown
Even in your hearts, there will he rake for it:
Therefore in fierce tempest is he coming,
In thunder and in earthquake, like a Jove,
That, if requiring fail, he will compel;
And bids you, in the bowels of the Lord,
Deliver up the crown, and to take mercy
On the poor souls for whom this hungry war
Opens his vasty jaws; and on your head
Turning the widows' tears, the orphans' cries
The dead men's blood, the pining maidens groans,
For husbands, fathers and betrothed lovers,
That shall be swallow'd in this controversy.
This is his claim, his threatening and my message;

Henry, demanding the surrender of Harflour:

Therefore, you men of Harfleur,
Take pity of your town and of your people,
Whiles yet my soldiers are in my command;
Whiles yet the cool and temperate wind of grace
O'erblows the filthy and contagious clouds
Of heady murder, spoil and villany.
If not, why, in a moment look to see
The blind and bloody soldier with foul hand
Defile the locks of your shrill-shrieking daughters;
Your fathers taken by the silver beards,
And their most reverend heads dash'd to the walls,
Your naked infants spitted upon pikes,
Whiles the mad mothers with their howls confused
Do break the clouds, as did the wives of Jewry
At Herod's bloody-hunting slaughtermen.
What say you? will you yield, and this avoid,
Or, guilty in defence, be thus destroy'd?

But my favorite, largely thanks to Kenneth Branagh's delivery, is:

We are glad the Dauphin is so pleasant with us;
His present and your pains we thank you for:
When we have march'd our rackets to these balls,
We will, in France, by God's grace, play a set
Shall strike his father's crown into the hazard.

The way he snaps off the T in "set" gives me shivers every time.

There's a movie starring Dennis Quaid that's a poor imitation of Seven called Horsemen, but there's one chilling line. One of the victims is lying in a masochism/torture device while her daughter is telling her exactly why she's killing and torturing her. When she's finished, the daughter says matter-of-factly, "You're going to drown now."

From "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" (1975):

French Soldier (John Cleese): I don't want to talk to you no more, you empty headed animal food trough wiper. I fart in your general direction. Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries.

Not a movie, but too awesome to omit: From the webcomic Penny Arcade: (http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2006/4/10/)

Don't you say another goddamn word. Up until now I've been polite. If you say anything else — word one — I will kill myself. And when my tainted spirit finds its destination, I will topple the master of that dark place. From my black throne, I will lash together a machine of bone and blood, and fueled by my hatred for you the fear engine will bore a hole between this world and that one. When it begins, you will hear the sound of children screaming — as though from a great distance. A smoking orb of nothing will grow above your bed, and from it will emerge a thousand starving crows. As I slip through the widening maw in my new form, you will catch only a glimpse of my radiance before you are incinerated. Then as tears of bubbling pitch stream down my face, my dark work will begin. I will open one of my six mouths, and I will sing the song that ends the earth.

Dan Aykroyd, yes, but the quote comes from Doctor Detroit.

And copied by Swede in the Clint Eastwood vehicle Heartbreak Ridge (AFAIK, the only Grenada War movie ever made).

PROSSER: Mr. Dent, have you any idea how much damage that bulldozer would suffer if I just let it roll straight over you?

ARTHUR: How much?

PROSSER: None at all.

From a most probably never-translated French film (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0096034/) :

As the heroes are suspended in a crow cage (dunno the English word for that - it's essentially what it says on the tin : a suspended cage where people are left hanging for the crows to eat them alive), their evil captor says this :

- I regret I won't be here to witness your slow agony, but you know how it is when one has my responsibilities. It's a shame, really, because as soon as the Sun comes up, the crows start feasting on the eyes first. They seem to be fond of them. It makes a strange sound, a beautiful sound...
hero, interrupting : Yeah, yeah, all right, we'll see.
- No. That's the point. You won't. But you'll hear. Good night.

I'm sure it was in Trading Places also - it was said by that goon who did the Dukes' dirty work. I guess it's just a popular threat.

That'd be a gibbet.

I'm surprised this hasn't been posted yet. A personal favorite:

What now? Let me tell you what now. I'm gonna call a couple of hard-pipe-hittin' niggas to go to work on the homes here with a pair of pliers and a blowtorch. You hear me, talking hillbilly boy? I ain't through with you! Not by damn sight! I'm gonna get medieval on your ass!

~Marsellus Wallace, Pulp FictionTarantino lifted the "pair of pliers and a blowtorch" phrase from Charlie Varrick.
