She is shown again in a lengthy sequence of Nigel Terry using her body as a model for his painting, with an interlude of his mournfully cradling her in his arms. Tilda was pregnant at the time of her death, consequently, her unborn child also died.

  • Suspiria (2018) [Madame Blanc / Dr. Josef Klemperer / Helena Marcos]: Portraying three different characters, Madame Blanc is lethally wounded by supernatural powers of Helena Marcos and her head is almost separated from the body (although her death was never shown on-screen as she stands on her knees barely alive at the end of the film), and Helena Marcos received the kiss of death from Malgosia Bela under Dakota Johnson's instruction. Dr. Josef Klemperer survives the movie.
