Barbara Crampton (1958 - )


Barbara Crampton (with Bruce Abbott) in Re-Animator

Film Deaths:Edit

  • Re-Animator (1985) [Megan Halsey]: Strangled by one of the re-animated bodies as she and Bruce Abbott are trying to escape in an elevator. After Bruce and Carolyn Purdy-Gordon unsuccessfully attempt to resuscitate her, the movie ends with Bruce injecting her with the re-animating formula.
  • You're Next (2011) [Aubrey Davison]: Stabbed in the neck with a machete (off-screen) by L.C. Holt; her body is shown afterwards lying on the bed when the family discovers her.
  • Lords of Salem (2012) [Virginia Cable]: Killed (off-screen), along with the other female descendants of the Salem witch-hunters, by Meg Foster's coven inside the theater. I couldn't spot Barbara among the pile of bodies, but she is shown earlier as one of the people affected by the coven's music; director Rob Zombie confirms on the US DVD's commentary that the women in the theater are the same people that the music affected in the earlier scenes.

TV Series Deaths:Edit

  • Days Of Our Lives (1983) [Trista Evans Bradford]:  Stabbed in the back by the Salem Slasher (played by Thaao Penghlis, but while wearing a mask to look like John de Lancie).
  • Channel Zero: The Dream Door - Where Did You Sleep Last Night? (2018) [Vanessa Moss]: Stabbed and mutilated off-screen by Pretzel Jack (Troy James), her death goes partially heard by intended victim Brandon Scott. Her death comes only as a result of firing her gun at Pretzel Jack as he contorts his way in her spa home to Scott.
