Film Deaths[edit | edit source]

  • Spirits of the Dead (Histoires extraordinaires; Tales of Mystery and Imagination) (1968) [Toby Dammit]: Decapitated (off-camera) by a cable stretched across a fallen bridge when he tries to drive across the gap; we only see blood dripping from the cable after he drives away.
  • The Divine Nymph (Divina creatura) (1975) [Dany di Bagnasco]: Commits suicide (off-camera) by shooting himself in the head; we hear the shot over a freeze-frame of Terence holding the gun to his head.
  • Superman II (1980) [General Zod]: Thrown into a deep pit by Christopher Reeve, after Christopher manages to strip Terence, Jack O'Halloran, and Sarah Douglas of their superhuman powers, (we learn it's been done when Christopher crushes Terence's hand). (However in Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut, Christopher turns back time (the same way he did in the first film) to the time before Terence, Jack and Sarah were released from the 'Phantom Zone') (Thanks to Robert and Michael)
  • The Hit (1984) [Willie Parker]: Shot in the back by John Hurt. (Thanks to ND)
  • Link (1986) [Dr. Stephen Phillip]: Killed (off-screen) by the intelligent orangutan; his body is shown afterwards when David O'Hara discovers him in a well. (Thanks to Aaron)
  • Alien Nation (1988) [William Harcourt]: Dissolved after James Caan pushes him (causing both to fall overboard) into the ocean (salt water acting like acid to his kind) at the end of a fight on a boat, he dies after trying to drown James repeatedly as they struggle in the water (Stamp was wearing heavy alien make up for this role). (Thanks to Keenan)
  • Red Planet (2000) [Dr. Bud Chantilas]: Dies of internal bleeding after being fatally injured in the crash-landing on Mars; he dies while talking to Val Kilmer (with his body later seen from a distance as Carrie-Anne Moss scans the planet for the other crew members). (Thanks to ND)
  • Revelation (2001) [Magnus Martel]: Stabbed in the stomach and skinned alive by Udo Kier; we only hear Terence screaming after the initial stabbing from off-camera. His body is shown afterwards when his son (James D'Arcy) discovers him lying on a kitchen floor. (Thanks to ND)
  • The Haunted Mansion (2003) [Ramsley]: Appears as a ghost, having died some time in the past; his spirit is finally sent to Hell at the end of the movie. (Thanks to ND)
  • Get Smart (2008) [Siegfried]: Thrown out of a moving car through a car door by Dalip Singh (whilst he's insulting Dalip for a failed nuclear strike); he then falls off over a motorway bridge into the water below. (Played for comic effect.) (Thanks to ND)
