After coming back to life, he dies once again when his head comes off at the stitches during a struggle with Graham. (Nudity alert: Full frontal)
  • Cat People (1982) [Paul Gallier]: Shot to death (while in his leopard form) by Annette O'Toole when he attacks John Heard. His body (still in its leopard form) disintegrates when John starts to perform a necropsy on it.

  • Happily Ever After (1990; animated) [Lord Maliss]: Petrified/turned to stone when Thunderella (voiced by Tracey Ullman ) uses her telekenetics to throw his petrifying cloak over him before he can kill Snow White (voiced by Irene Cara ). He turns to stone as he is in mid transformation between his human and dragon form. 
  • Cyborg 3: The Creation (1995) [Lord Talon]: Electrocuted by Richard Lynch.

  • Halloween (2007) [Dr. Sam Loomis]: Head squeezed by Tyler Mane after trying to reason with him. He survives the alternate ending. (Note: His character returns in the 2009 sequel, having survived, but I'll list it as it was intended as a death.)
  • Halloween II (2009) [Dr. Sam Loomis]: Stabbed repeatedly in the face and chest by Tyler Mane in a shack after trying to reason with him while Scout Taylor-Compton looks on in horror. In the alternate ending, Tyler stabs him once in the stomach outside the shack.
