My favorite movie of all time is called 28 days later, maybe you've seen it? anyways at the very end, the protagonist Jim, gouges the eyes of the evil Lt. of the 42nd blockade.. He saves selena by doing this but she sees him covered in blood enjoying this violence and she procedes to attempt killing Jim with her Machete.
Ever since I seen that movie when I was maybe 8 I've always wanted to see how it would feel... "The eyeballs are the groin of the face"
Oh man, that brings me back. When I was 8, I saw Event Horizon in theaters. Does that make me old? Lol. Badass movie. Gave me the creeps and a lot of inspiration for YEARS.
Anyways, yes, I have seen 28 days later a few times. The part in the movie you're talking about, when Jim goes apeshit, and acts like a zombie and fucks up the blockade, is my favorite part of the film. There's also a dude in 'Dredd 3D' (awesome movie) that gets the ol' thumbs in the socket. And I must say, I prefer to explore the concept through art.
