Death is the ultimate unknown; something we both fear and are intrigued by. 1,000 Ways to Die chronicles the last moments of people who met an untimely demise by making bad choices or through sheer bad luck. As well as being horrifying and morbidly funny, 1,000 Ways to Die is also educational and recreates the scenes using state of the art CGI graphics animation.
Several different deaths based on true stories.
1000 Ways to Die is an anthology television series that premiered on Spike on May 14, 2008, and ended on July 15, 2012. The program recreates unusual supposed deaths and debunked urban legends and includes interviews with experts who describe the science behind each death. Up until the end of season one, the final story of each episode showed actual footage of dangerous situations that almost ended in death, along with interviews with people involved in the situations. A portion of these deaths have been nominated for or have received a Darwin Award. Ron Perlman served as the narrator on every episode since the third episode; beginning with the episode 'Tweets from the Dead' Joe Irwin was featured as the replacement narrator.
The show was cancelled after the airing of "Death, The Final Frontier". This was done after the producers and stars of the show ran a strike against Spike.
