Deaths in Film[]

  • Just Like Heaven (2005) [Elizabeth Masterson]: Temporarily dies in the moment after she flatlines when her breathing tube is disconnected, before she comes back to life due to her spirit rejoining her body. (It initially appears that she's a ghost, but it turns out that her spirit is simply outside her body while she's in a coma.) (It's debatable whether this counts as a death scene or not, but it's listed just in case.)

  • Water for Elephants (2011) [Marlena Rosenbluth]: Dies (off-screen) of natural causes; her death is mentioned in Hal Holbrook's narration.
