Jack Nance (1943 - 1996)

Film Deaths:[]

  • Eraserhead (1977) [Henry Spencer]: Probably killed (along with everyone else) when the world is (by implication) destroyed; the movie ends with Jack embracing Laurel Near, then suddenly fades to black.
  • Ghoulies (1984) [Wolfgang]: Killed in a duel of magic with Michael Des Barres.
  • Blue Velvet (1986) [Paul]: Shot to death off-screen when the police attack Dennis Hopper 's hideout.  We simply see shots firing from a window by the gang, and the firing stop after the police barrage the building with gunfire.
