Film Deaths[]

  • Frightmare (Body Snatchers) (1983) [Stu]: Decapitated with a sword by Ferdy Mayne.
  • From Beyond (1986) [Crawford Tillinghast]: Swallowed by the mutated Ted Sorel; he manages to fight back from within, buying enough time for Barbra Crampton to escape, before both being killed by a bomb rigged to explode.
  • Cyclone (1987) [Rick Davenport]: Stabbed in the back of the neck by an assassin.
  • Cellar Dweller (1988) [Colin Childress]: Accidentally burns himself to death when he the flame he starts spreads throughout his house after he sets his art on fire to try and kill the monster.
  • The Guyver (1991) [Dr. East]: Killed when the Guyver bursts out of his chest after incubating inside his body, by Jack Armstrong
  • Fortress (1992) [D-Day, the Computer Geek]: Shot in the back by the prison's cyborg drones as he downloads a virus to disable them.
  • Castle Freak (1995) [John Reilly]: Intentionally falls to his death from the castle while chained to his deformed half-brother, ultimately dragging him down with him and sacrificing himself to save his family.
  • The Frighteners (1996) [Agent Milton Dammers]: Decapitated with a shotgun blast by Dee Wallace Stone after Michael J. Fox, her actual target, falls out of the way. Jeffrey's ghostly head remains visible in place of his missing head while retaining the shocked expression of seeing Dee unexpectedly before his body collapses. His ghost is shown again sitting in Troy Evans' patrol car at the end of the movie, glaring at Michael. NOTE: Peter Jackson originally intended Dammers to simply be shot in the chest but once the film received an R-rating from the MPAA who refused to change it, Comb's death was changed to have his head get blown off in an explosion of blood to make the changed warranted.
  • Caught Up (1998) [Security Guard]: Commits suicide by shooting himself in the mouth after shooting Bokeem Woodbine and knocking him off the docks into the water (I haven’t seen all the movie but I have seen his death scene online).
  • I Still Know What You Did Last Summer (1998) [Jay Brooks]: Stabbed in the head with a machete (off-screen) by Muse Watson in Jeffrey's office; his body is shown afterwards when several students discover him.
  • House on Haunted Hill (1999) [Dr. Richard Benjamin Vannacutt]: Killed by the inmates at the asylum after they revolt (he manages to seal everyone but five staff members inside then starts a fire before dying). His ghost is later seen throughout the film causing several deaths.
  • Faust: Love of the Damned (2000) [Lt. Dan Margolies]: Consumed by a demonic being that takes over and transforms his body.
  • Contagion (2001) [Brown]: Stabbed in the neck with a syringe by Lin Shaye, after he tries to stop her from killing Matteo Crismani.

  • The Wizard of Gore (2007) [The Geek]: Stabbed in the stomach by Kip Pardue. He is later shown alive, appearing on stage as Crispin Glover's replacement in the magic act, leaving it ambiguous as to what is reality and what is illusion/hallucination.
  • Dark House (2009) [Walston]: Killed by a group holographic zombies made "real" by Diane Salinger's spirit; his body is shown afterwards when Meghan Ory discovers him. (It's later theorized that all the murders were actually committed by Meghan, and that everything we'd seen had been Meghan's hallucination, but the final scene indicates that Diane's spirit is real after all.)
  • Night of the Living Dead 3D: Re-Animation (2012) [Harold Tovar] Bitten by a Zombie he is then killed by Andrew Divoff before Combs turns into a Zombie
