Film Deaths[edit | edit source]

  • 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.)
  • 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)

TV Deaths[edit | edit source]

  • Gibbsville: Andrea (1976) [Andrea]: Commits suicide by jumping from a window. (Thanks to Gordon)
  • Tales of the Unexpected: Neck (1979) [Natalia] Accidentally (?) decapitated by her husband (Michael Aldridge) when she gets her head stuck in a sculpture and he tries to chop it open with an ax.
  • Tales of the Unexpected: A Girl Can't Always Have Everything (1980) [Suzy Starr]: Dies in a 'fake' suicide by taking a large number of sedatives believing that her best friend Pauline Collins will carry out her side of the plot and get her 'rescued' in time, but of course Pauline betrays her. (Thanks to Brian)
