Man, the Original Star Wars Trilogy Was a Bloodbath

By Eric Limer on at

When I think back on watching Star Wars as a kid, I remember it as a pretty tame. After all, those stormtroopers had terrible aim. Turns out that maybe I'm misremembering. That original trilogy was kind of a bloodbath, and this supercut from Digg turns it into a tidy little three-minute snuff film.

Aside from the pure joy of watching stormtroopers bite it, this little clip also offers a running tally of carnage at the bottom, complete with estimated counts for the crews of AT-ATs, Star Destroyers, and everything else that explodes. Now we just need one for the prequel trilogy, with a count of every Star Wars fan who died inside while watching it. [Digg Video]
