Film Deaths[]

  • Frenzy (1972) [Babs Milligan]: Strangled with a necktie after being raped by Barry Foster in his apartment; shown after the fact in a rapid-fire flashback montage of close-ups. Her body is shown again later on in a lengthy sequence when Barry retrieves his tie-pin from her hand after sneaking back onto the produce truck where he had hidden her body. (Nudity alert: Topless & rear, body doubled)
  • The Vault of Horror (Tales from the Crypt Part II) (1973) [Donna Rogers]: Stabbed by her brother (Daniel Massey) in her home; because she is a vampire, this does not kill her, but she plays dead to avoid giving herself away. She later reveals herself as a vampire to Daniel when she confronts him at the vampire restaurant.
  • Impromptu (1991) [George Sand's Mother]: Dies of natural causes after falling asleep in her chair, while her daughter (Judy Davis) is talking to her.
  • Haunted (1995) [Nanny Tess Webb]: Dies of a heart attack/exhaustion after being spun around at superhuman speed by the ghosts of Anthony Andrews, Kate Beckinsale, and Alex Lowe, while Aidan Quinn looks on in horror.
