Top Seven Supermarket Slaughters

Army of Darkness (1992)
"That's right…Shop Smart: Shop S-Mart. You got that?!" Who could forget that our favorite slayer of Deadites, Ashley J. "Ash" Williams, had quite the showdown with an evil baddie in his place of employment, the S-Mart, in the culmination of Army of Darkness? The S-Mart provides a great background for Ash to go wild one last time. Decked out in his snappy S-Mart uniform, Ash is seen describing how he could have been king to a co-worker (played by Ted Raimi) when suddenly a Deadite appears with bad intentions and Ash is forced to go all medieval on her ass. A great finish to a legendary horror series.

Universal Soldier (1992)
Okay, so maybe Universal Solider isn't known as a horror film, but you can't deny the brutality of this scene. Sgt. Andrew Scott (Dolph Lundgren) has gone off the deep end. He drags two dead bodies into the market cooler while wearing a necklace made out of ears. He's also accompanied by a guy eating raw meat from the supermarket butcher's counter. In between trying to make dead guys stand at attention and shooting police officers in the head, Sgt. Scott goes on an impressive paranoid rant about traitors and how we need to fear and destroy them. This supermarket scene really injects a horrific element into this memorable movie.

I never even thought about INTRUDER when reading this list, but now that you mention it, it definetely deserves a spot on this list.

For shame, Dr. Gash. That movie is the quintessential supermarket horror movie.

You also forgot Dead Set. Most tense supermarket raid ever.

Fun list! I bet we will Never be rid of Twinkies, tho. Not only is their expiration date into Infinity but there are probably goverment stores of them all over the world...just waiting for an Alien invasion. That's when we will use them to give tasty, crippling diabetes (?!) to the invaders! Yeah, I'm tired.
