John Wick is often called the Baba Yaga, who is a Slavic boogeyman from yore. It’s meant to show how badass he is, despite Baba Yaga being a female and not really a killer. Sure, he’s meant to be the boogeyman’s boogeyman but the nickname doesn’t really fit…but hey, it’s catchy.
Wick is a killer and as one, he’s killed more people than two of horror’s most prolific icons; Jason Voorhees (Friday the 13th) and Micheal Myers (Halloween).
In John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum (read our review here) alone, he’s murdered enough people to fill a small town!
All that killing makes you think. If you’re like us, you’d probably have wondered how many graves he’s filled total.
John Squires from Bloody Disgusting has sat down and counted the dead bodies left behind Wick’s rampages. Here’s the breakdown he got:
- John Wick – 84
- John Wick: Chapter 2 – 128
- John Wick: Chapter 3 – 94
That’s a grand total of 306 people, personally murdered by John.
In contrast, Mike Myers (not the comedian) has murdered 140, while fellow slasher Jason Voorhees has ended the lives of 157 people. Freddy Krueger? Barely makes a splash in the (bloody) pool, with only 40 killed.
John’s 306 bodies makes his kill count more than Jason AND Myers combined, which is incredibly impressive and more than a little disturbing. It also shows how deadly he is, since most of those kills are in massive fights instead of one on one.
Of course, Wick still trails the greatest mass murderer of all time; John Rambo. To date, Rambo has massacred at least 503 people. At least!
With Chapter 4 coming in 2021, there’s zero reason to doubt that John’s not done murdering yet.
Hell, by the time he’s done, we wouldn’t be surprised if Wick outpaced Rambo by a 1000 or more at the rate he’s going.
