Can anyone really survive the booby traps from home alone?
There is no other movie that gets me in the holiday spirit so much as Home Alone does. Home Alone tells a rather unsettling Christmas story of a 8-year-old who, accidentally abandoned by his family, is forced to defend his home from two dimwitted burglars. Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) turns his family’s home into a veritable funhouse of torturous booby traps that so-called “Wet Bandits” Marv (Daniel Stern) and Harry (Joe Pesci) hilariously stumble through.
But can anyone actually survive all these booby traps? The Week asked a medical expert to take a look at the sustained injuries throughout the movie ranging from the BB gun to the forehead scene to handling the burning-hot doorknob and the famous paint can to the face scene.
Let’s have a look at what the medical expert said about the Paint can to the face scene:
“Assuming the paint can is full (roughly 10 pounds) and the rope is 10 feet long, Marv and Harry each take a roughly 2 kilo-newton hit to the face. That is easily enough to fracture multiple facial bones, and is probably going to knock you out cold. Also, I wouldn’t expect either of the Wet Bandits to walk away from this with all of their teeth.”
