Film Deaths[]

  • Let Him Have It (1991) [Derek Bentley]: Executed by hanging after being unjustly sentenced to death for Robert Morgan's murder. 
  • Shallow Grave (1994) [David Stephens]: Stabbed in the back of the neck by Kerry Fox while Christopher is trying to kill Ewan McGregor. His body is shown at the beginning of the movie as he narrates from beyond the grave, but it isn't revealed until the end that he was already dead in the opening close-up. 
  • Elizabeth (1998) [Duke of Norfolk]: Executed by beheading off-screen; his severed head is shown on a pike afterwards. 
  • Existenz (1999) [Seminar Leader]: Shot in the chest with a gristle-gun by Kris Lemche; this turns out to be a simulation and he survives in reality.
  • Heart (1999) [Gary Ellis]: Commits suicide by slitting his throat with a scalpel, as Saskia Reeves looks on; Saskia then cuts out his heart and takes the blame for his "murder."
  • Gone in Sixty Seconds (2000) [Raymond Calitri]: Falls to his death and lands on a coffin after Nicolas Cage knocks him off of a platform as Christopher is about to shoot Delroy Lindo
  • The Others (2001) [Charles Stewart]: Killed off-screen in combat; he appears as a ghost when he returns to talk to Nicole Kidman, but his ghostly nature isn't revealed until Nicole realizes that she herself is a ghost.
  • 28 Days Later (2002) [Major Henry West]: Mauled to death by the infected Marvin Campbell.
  • Revengers Tragedy (2002) [Vindici]: Shot to death (off-camera) by guards, along with the rest of his family, when they take Anthony Booth hostage in the palace; we only hear the shots after the camera pans up to a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
  • The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising (2007) [The Rider]: Apparently destroyed when Alexander Ludwig uses his powers to trap Christopher in one of his own spheres, then drops it into the murky waters. Christopher's death is ambiguous, so this entry will stay.
  • Amelia (2009) [Fred Noonan]: Dies off-screen in a presumed plane crash, along with Hilary Swank; the movie ends with them flying over the sea while low on fuel, but their disappearance is a well-known historic fact.
  • Thor: The Dark World (2013) [Malekith]: Crushed to death by his own falling spaceship when Stellan Skarsgard sends it through a portal, after Chris Hemsworth had thrown Christopher into that same realm at the end of their fight.
