Film Deaths[]

  • Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (Friday the 13th Part IV) (1984) [Jimmy Mortimer]: Hit in the face with a meat cleaver by Jason (Ted White) in the kitchen, after Jason pins Crispin's hand to the table with a corkscrew. His body is later shown crucified over a doorway, when Kimberly Beck opens the door.
  • Teachers (1984) [Danny]: Shot in the chest by police while Crispin is holding a gun.
  • At Close Range (1986) [Lucas]: Shot in the chest by Tracey Walter and R.D. Call beside an open grave in a field.
  • Wild at Heart (1990) [Dell]: Possibly dies (off-screen); it's mentioned that he disappeared without a trace, but his actual fate is unconfirmed.
  • Charlie's Angels (2000) [The Thin Man]: Killed in an explosion along with Kelly Lynch when Sam Rockwell fires a missile at his mansion while Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu are on the balcony and jump to safety as the building blows up (In the sequel, it was revealed that Crispin survived, but this will be be treated like a straight example though as nothing contradicted it at the time).
  • Bartleby (2001) [Bartleby]: Dies (off-screen) of starvation and exposure in the street; his body is shown afterwards when David Paymer comes to bring him food and discovers that he's too late.
  • Fast Sofa (2001) [Jules Langdon]: Killed in a car crash while driving drunk.
  • Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle (2003) [The Thin Man]: Stabbed in the chest with his own sword by Justin Theroux on a rooftop; he then falls from the roof as Drew Barrymore looks on helplessly. (The US Unrated DVD includes an extended version of the scene, in which he survives the stabbing and fall, but is then crushed to death by a falling sign by preventing Justin Theroux's character's attempt to avoid said falling sign.)
  • Willard (2003) [Willard Stiles]: Although he survives in the finished film, the US DVD includes the original alternate ending in which he is devoured by the rats. (See also Bruce Davison's death in the 1971 version).
  • What Is It? (2005) [Dueling Demi-God Auteur, The Young Man's Inner Psyche and Id]: Strangled by Steven C. Stewart on Crispin's throne in a graveyard. (Note: This film is only shown at special screenings as part of Crispin's personal-appearance tours; he currently has no plans to release it on DVD.)
  • Simon Says (2006) [Simon/Stanley]: Hit in the head with a meat cleaver by Margo Harshman in the woods.
  • Beowulf (2007) [Grendel]: Fatally injured when Beowulf (voiced by Ray Winstone) ruptures his ear and tears off his arm; he manages to make his way back to his lair and dies in the arms of his mother (voiced by Angelina Jolie).
  • The Wizard of Gore (2007) [Montag the Magnificent]: Skull crushed when Kip Pardue squeezes Crispin's head with his bare hands.
  • 9 (2009) [6]: Providing the voice of a robotic sack-creature, his soul is sucked out of his body by the BRAIN machine. His disembodied soul is shown again later on when 9 (voiced by Elijah Wood) releases it.
  • The Bag Man (2014) [Ned]: Beaten to death with a shovel by John Cusack; his body is shown again when Rebecca Da Costa sees him in the trunk of John's car.
  • Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016) [Knave of Heart]: Although he doesn't appear in this film, Crispin's character from the previous film's skeleton with a dagger through his chest is seen when Sacha Baron Cohen sits next to it, implying that he was stabbed (off screen) by Helena Bonham Carter in between movies.
  • Lucky Day (2019) [Luc Chaltiel]: Commits suicide by blowing himself up with a bomb strapped to his body in an attempt to kill Luke Bracey.
