Adrienne Barbeau (1945 - )

Film Deaths:Edit

  • Someone's Watching Me! (1978) [Sophie]: Choked to death by
    George Skaff while Lauren Hutton is watching through a telescope. (Thanks to Dake)
  • Creepshow (1982) [Wilma Northrup]: Mauled to death by a monster Darryl Ferrucci after Hal Holbrook lures her to its lair. (There are also two earlier daydream sequences in which Hal shoots her in the head and strangles her with a necktie.)
  • Swamp Thing (1982) [Alice Cable]: Stabbed in the chest with a sword by Louis Jourdan (in his monstrous form); she is later brought back by Dick Durock's healing powers. (It's arguable as to whether this constitutes an actual death scene or a "brink-of-death" scene, but since it's been suggested, I thought I'd go ahead and include it.) (Thanks to Redeemer)
  • Terror at London Bridge (Bridge Across Time; Arizona Ripper) (1985) [Lynn Chandler]: Slashed to death by Paul Rossilli; her body is shown floating in the river afterwards. (Thanks to PortsGuy)
  • Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death (1989) [Dr. Kurtz]: Commits suicide by plunging her face into piranha-filled waters. (Played for comic effect.) (Thanks to Jack and PortsGuy)
  • Bram Stoker's Burial of the Rats (1995) [The Queen]: Eaten by rats (and rapidly reduced to a skeleton) when she commits suicide by breaking the flute that let her control the rats. (Thanks to Deina & Richard)
  • Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island (1998; animated) [Simone Lenoir]: Disintegrates, along with Lena (voiced by Tara Strong) and Jacques (voiced by Jim Cummings), when they fail to sacrifice the Scooby-Doo gang to sustain their immortality. (Thanks to PortsGuy)
  • The Convent (2000) [Adult Christine]: Killed in an explosion when she sacrifices herself by riding a dynamite-laden motorcycle into a room full of zombies. (Thanks to Cameron)
  • Malevolence 3: Killer (2018) [Meredith Bristol]: Hit in the face with an ax by Jay Cohen in a nightmare Katie Gibson is having. She survives the film in reality, although the ending implies that Katie's nightmare will come true.
