    No, there are some bullets that don`t fly through other side of the skull, so they keep bouncing around in your head.

    Fake or not, that`s disgusting and should not be performed on a stage. People commit suicide in reality and the family has to clean up the mess left behind. It`s a horrible thing, I don`t want to see it glamorised on a stage.

    Doubtful, at point blank range I can hardly imagine it not just splitting through the bone.

    Though I doubt its authenticity, the idea that your head literally explodes all over the ground and walls after a nice bullet to it is entirely big screen myth. There are quite a few videos on the internet of authentic shot-in-head suicides, and at the most you get a stream of blood coming from one hole or another.

    Fake, Guns don`t normally puff out a cloud of "White" Smoke - Not at the first shot, secondly, point blank Revolver shot to the head will make noticeable damage. You`ll know when someone`s been shoot to the head at pointblank and when some one is just using a cap snapper.

    its totally fake. when you watch him shoot the bullet you can see a small off color square where they edited in the puff of smoke. Nice Try, but it totally wasn`t loud or bloody enough to be real.

    Obviously fake. If you have any doubt, step through it frame by frame and look at the "smoke" from the weapon,

    Also, all revolvers (even something as small as a .22) smoke from around the cylinder when fired (as there is a small gap). That was not present in the film.

    Alright, I`m going to point this out.

    elHadji, no, tissue and blood does not have to fly for it to be real. While yes, at point blank it is more likely that it would, gunshot wounds to the head do not usually blow out the skull, regardless of distance. Common aftermath is blood drainage from the bullet wound, ears, nose, mouth, or eyes, but brain tissue does not go flying, chunks of skull does not come out, nothing.

    People are far too accustomed to how Hollywood and special effects make things like this seem. Most people wouldn`t expect someone to be dead when nothing really goes wrong, i.e brain and skull flying, so it has to be doctored and enhanced to bring out the terror factor. Real gunshot suicide generally are NOT messy unless it`s a shotgun or something far more devastating. Handguns and small caliber weapons like this? Nothing.

    For a good example, check this link, but please be warned it`s a little not safe for work.

    There, sorry. Comment was a bit too long to contain it. Again, a bit not safe for work, but it shows the damage and side effects that come with shooting yourself in the head at point blank.

    Please notice that NOTHING happens. No brains fly, no, his skull does not blow up. There you go.

    There should have been a warning on this, whether its fake or not.

    I think its still fake though. It was too clean. Did anyone see the Kennedy tape? The guy shot from waaay farther away than this guy, and Kennedy`s right side of his head practically blew up!

    I am guessing it was fake but I`m not sure. I remember an actor who accidentally shot himself with a gun loaded with blanks about 20 years ago. Even though it was a blank it still killed him. So unless this guy was using some newer kind of blank, it would`ve killed him too.

    Fake or not, even though I`ve seen him do it on a BBC show for real where he went through some chambers before chickening out and shooting the wall with the next chamber(coulda been a sqib). That was most likely an accident with a blank in the chamber, ment to be a blank but not ment to fire at his head. It`s all a suspence trick to give you a scare. First the actor ( YES, ACTOR) gives a lil speech to make you think it`s all real and that there is the possibility of his frontal lobe flying into your drink. The blank is loaded (looks like a S&W .357 magnum maybe a Python but the barrel is a bit long so it`s probably a stage knock off). Then the cylinder is spun rapidly to get the crowd rallied up, the actor gives a quick slight of hand adjustment & a short glance that you`re too scared to see to make sure that he`s got atleast three chambers before the blank is fired. He keeps in mind which chamber it`s in and stops the act so the blank doesn`t go off in his ear, and fires into

    BTW, a head shot with a large caliber hand gun will cause a hole the size of your thumb on the entrance and a ripped chunk the size of a tennis ball on the exit. I`ve seen enough forensic profiles to know what a .357 or larger will do to a human skull at point blank. I`ve also seen Iraqi war photos of terrorists who were dumb enough to take on a US soldier with a .50 cal machine gun. Everything from the middle of the chest upwards was gone and all that remained was a pile of red jello with legs. Oh, you can probably find this one. It was a viral vid about 2 years ago of a suicide bomber running at some troops, and I mean sprinting like he`s in the olympic games, when the bomb prematurly detonates and his legs keep running for about 15 feet. He was nothing but legs & pelvis but kept running like a chicken with his head cut off. Crazy stuff, isn`t it. Now that I`ve corrupted your minds with gore & violence, I`m gonna get some sleep and dream of unicorns & gum drops. Have a ni
