Sling Blade (1996)

Ending / spoiler

(3 votes)

Karl splits Doyle's head in two with a lawnmower blade, calls 911, then sits down at the kitchen table and has a biscuit with mustard. Last shot is a slow zoom on Karl, staring out a window - he's back at the "nervous hospital".


Continuity mistake: When Karl stayed at the Warden's home, the first shot which would be the following morning, shows the exterior of a single story home. In the following shot of the interior, there is a staircase going up to a second floor.
