A long time ago I saw a scene from a movie where a man (a high-ranked military, IIRC) standing near a landed helicopter is decapitated by the main rotor blade. Unfortunately this was the only scene I saw, and I always thought that the movie was the third installment of The Omen series, but I recently realized that I was wrong (I saw the movie and keep waiting for the scene, with no success). Can anyone provide a reference?

Note: I am not asking about "Twilight Zone: The Movie", which is known by the death of the protagonist, Vic Morrow, during filming. The scene I am talking about is part of the movie plot.

  • The title somehow reminded me of the first Indiana Jones movie, where a tough looking nazi guy, who was giving the protagonist a beating, was killed by a plane rotor blade (not a helicopter).

I'm pretty sure this is Holocaust 2000 which has similar themes to The Omen.

Here's a youtube clip:

A zombie in 1978's Dawn of the Dead got the top of its head chopped off by a helicopter. It somewhat matches your original guess as it's the second movie in a series, and the third movie is very military-centric and prominently features a helicopter. Since they both have helicopters it would be an easy mix-up as for what part of a series.

  • Thanks for your answer, but I barely remember the military saluting some people (or soldiers), with his back turned to the chopper. Nov 3, 2013 at 19:42
