Film Deaths

  • Vampire in Brooklyn (1995) [Maximilian/Preacher Pauly/Guido]: Playing multiple roles, "Preacher Pauly" is bitten on the throat and drained of blood (off-screen), by "Maximilian," who then assumes Pauly's appearance. "Maximilian" is stabbed in the heart with a silver stake by Angela Bassett; his body then melts into nothingness. (Thanks to John, Mathew and Drew)
  • Nutty Professor II: The Klumps (2000) [Sherman Klump/Buddy Love/Granny Klump/Mama Klump/Papa Klump/Young Papa Klump/Ernie Klump/Lance Perkins]: Playing multiple roles, "Buddy Love" rapidly de-ages after being given an overdose of the youth serum by "Sherman Klump", who plans to ingest him so that their separated DNA can be re-joined. Buddy de-ages into a baby and then subsequently into a sentient pile of goo (by this point, CGI with Murphy's voice) before evaporating altogether.
  • The Adventures of Pluto Nash (2002) [Pluto Nash/Rex Crater]: Playing a dual role as both the original "Pluto Nash" and the clone "Rex Crater", "Rex" is knocked through a window by "Pluto". ("Pluto" survives the movie.) (Thanks to Scott and Tommy)
