When you think of Guardians of the Galaxy, you think irreverent brilliance, zany charm and, well, Hooked on a Feeling. It is slightly surprising, then, to see Marvel’s memorable space opera tops the list for deadliest film of all time.

A new study – because people do spend their time doing these types of things – has found that James Gunn’s critically-acclaimed superhero romp has the most on-screen casualties in cinematic history, totalling a whopping 83,761 (we reckon movies like Star Wars: A New Hope and The Force Awakens to Independence Day surely would top that, no?).

Coming in at second is Dracula Untold, which sits at a comparatively paltry 5,687. Ha!

Peter Jackson knows a thing or two about killing everyone in sight apparently as three of his Middle Earth-based films feature in the top ten, with The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King flying highest with 2,798.

Here’s the top ten…

1 Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) – 83,871

2 Dracula Untold (2014) – 5,687

3 The Sum of All fears (2002) – 2,922

4 The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King (2003) – 2,798

5 300: Rise of An Empire (2014) – 2,234

6 The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002) – 1,741

7 The Matrix Revolutions (2003) – 1,647

8 The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) – 1,417

9 Braveheart (1995) – 1,297 

10 Avengers Assemble (2012) – 1,019
