Deaths in Film[]

  • State of Grace (1990) [Stevie McGuire]: Throat slit by Ed Harris in an alley while R.D. Call holds John down; his body is shown again the next morning when a police boat pulls him out of the river.
  • Nightwatch (1998) [Deputy Inspector Bill Davis]: Hit on the head with a baseball bat by Nick Nolte in the hospital security station, while Josh Brolin looks on helplessly. We see Nick swinging the bat, followed by a splash of blood on the window, then see John's body fall to the floor.
  • Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story (2007) [Dewey Cox]: Dies of a heart attack three minutes after performing a song at an awards ceremony; the movie ends with a freeze-frame of John on stage, followed by some on-screen text informing us of his death. (A parody of the typical biopic ending, except that his death occurs immediately after the end rather than years later.) (Thanks to Andrew and ND)
  • 9 (2009; animated) [5]: Providing the voice of a robotic sack-creature, his soul is sucked out of his body by the BRAIN machine. His soul is seen again later on when 9 (voiced by Elijah Wood) releases it. (Thanks to Tommy)
  • The Dictator (2012) [Clayton]: Burned to death when he accidentally sets fire to himself while trying to burn Sacha Baron Cohen's beard after shaving it off. (Played for comic effect.) (Thanks to Tommy, Tim, and ND)
  • Tale of Tales (2015) [King of Longtrellis]: Slashed across the stomach by a dragon white in Alcantara river.
  • Stan & Ollie (2018) [Oliver Hardy] Dies (off-screen) of cerebral thrombosis after the movie ends. His death is mentioned on a screen text at the end of the movie.
