Film Deaths[]

  • UHF (1989) [George Newman]: Although he survives the films, he is killed in two fantasy sequences. The first sequence, a Raiders of the Lost Ark parody, he is crushed to death by a boulder after he gets exhausted from running from it. His flattened body is seen afterwards. In the second sequence, parodying Rambo, he is killed in an explosion, alongside Michael Richards, when terrorists blow up their helicopter they were aboard on with a rocket launcher as they try to escape. (All played for comic effect.)
  • Spy Hard (1996) [Weird Al Yankovic]: Head explodes after holding the last note in the film's theme song for too long; this is part of the opening sequence and has nothing to do with the rest of the film (Played for comic effect.)
  • Batman Vs Robin (2015; animated) [The Dollmaker]: Heart torn out by Talon (Jeremy Sisto) when he punches through his back with his steel clawed glove as Robin (Stuart Allan) is interrogating him.
