Film Deaths[]

  • Land of the Pharaohs (1957) [Princess Nellifer]: Suffocated or starved to death (off-screen) after being entombed alive inside the pyramid; the movie ends with her trapped inside. (Thanks to Richard and Nemanja)
  • Quest for Love (1971) [Ottilie/Tracy Fletcher]: Playing a dual role as two parallel-universe counterparts, "Ottilie" dies of heart failure in Tom Bell's arms. ("Tracy" survives the movie.)
  • Fear in the Night (Dynasty of Fear; Honeymoon of Fear) (1972) [Molly Carmichael]: Shot to death by Ralph Bates (who had mistaken her for Peter Cushing) while she's gagged and tied to a chair and covered with a sheet. (Thanks to Andrea)
  • Tales from the Crypt (1972) [Joanne Clayton]: Murdered (off-screen) by an escaped maniac in a Santa Claus suit. The scene ends as the attack begins, then immediately cuts to Joan standing with the other "tourists" in Ralph Richardson's crypt. (It's revealed at the end that they are all ghosts, and that their stories weren't warnings of the future but accounts of what had already happened to them.)
  • Tales that Witness Madness (1973) [Bella Thompson]: Killed (off-screen) by an intelligent, mobile plant.
  • Dark Places (1974) [Sarah]: Strangled by the deranged and/or possessed Robert Hardy (re-enacting the years-earlier murder of Jean Marsh). Her body is shown again later on when her brother (Christopher Lee) discovers her.
  • I Don't Want to Be Born (The Baby; The Devil Within Her; The Monster; Sharon's Baby) (1975) [Lucy Carlesi]: Stabbed in her right breast by the possessed baby through the crack in the doorway as she tries to hold the door closed.
  • Empire of the Ants (1977) [Marilyn Fryer]: Killed by the giant ant, after she 'breaks' free from it's possession and tries to escape. (Thanks to PortsGuy)
  • Fearless (Poliziotto senza paura; Fatal Charm) (1977) [Brigitte]: Shot twice in the lower chest by Alexander Trojan after he knocks out Maurizio Merli; we only see the flash of the gunshot reflected in a picture frame as Maurizio loses consciousness. Her body is shown afterwards when Maurizio wakes up and discovers her lying on the couch. (Nudity alert: Topless)
  • The Wild Women of Chastity Gulch (1982) [Annie McCulloch]: Dies of natural causes. (Thanks to Robert)
