a gruesome, slow unnatural death (ie, not from a long illness or something like that); a difficult death, usually involving (prolonged) torture.
I don't know why you died, Goldie. I don't know why and I don't know how. I never even met you before tonight. But you were a friend and more when I needed one. Well I'm gonna find that son of a bitch that killed you and I'm gonna give him the hard goodbye. When I found out who did it it won't be quick and quiet like it was with you. It'll be loud and nasty -- my kind of kill. And when his eyes go dead, the Hell I send him to will seem like Heaven after what I've done to him. I love you Goldie. -- Marv (Sin City)
