Mortal Kombat Video Showcases Every Fatality

One of the facets of Mortal Kombat that makes it so great, so memorable, and so controversial, is the fatality kill moves that dot the end of matches. As a boy of nigh a quarter century, I love to see spines ripped out of still breathing bodies and heads removed from necks. That's just kind of my thing right now.

And, if you and I are of the same breed, then you're going to enjoy this next montage I am scooping onto your plate. It is a 20-minute video featuring all of Mortal Kombat's fatalities from every single game (except Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe and the 2011 MK). I had to pop a bag of popcorn. T'was glorious.

Not only is this a brilliant montage of the most violent proportions, it is a fantastic little trip down nostalgia boulevard. I particularly like watching Baraka puncture the shit out of an unwitting foe. Or when Jax uses his inhuman strength to manually amputate a few arms. Which brings you the grins?
