Just a little old fashioned flaying

“Mr. Burton, if you have an influence over your youthful friend, you better exert it now. Otherwise I will send both of you to the hell where people are skinned alive! It’s that simple, understand?” – David Lo Pan (Big Trouble in Little China)

The idea of removing large sections of a person’s skin is hardly a new idea.  It’s been used as a form of torture for thousands of years.  But rarely does it look this clean.  I really like the little veins mixed in with the muscle and it makes me want to go and watch that episode of Buffy where the guy is flayed alive.

That or Big Trouble in Little China, simply because Jack Burton is about 15 different shades of badass.
