Film DeathsEdit

  • Bride of the Monster (Bride of the Atom) (1955) [Lobo]: Electrocuted when he backs into the machinery while Bela Lugosi (actually Bela's stunt double, possibly Eddie Parker) throws things at him. (The 1959 sequel Night of the Ghouls revealed that Tor survived, but it's clear that the original film intended this as a death scene.) (Thanks to Anton)
  • Night of the Ghouls (Revenge of the Dead) (1959) [Lobo]: Shot in the chest by police when he attacks them. (Thanks to Anton)
  • The Beast of Yucca Flats (The Atomic Monster; Girl Madness) (1961) [Joseph Javorsky, the Beast]: Shot in the back by Larry Aten while Tor is trying to strangle Bing Stafford in the desert; he dies shortly afterwards, as a rabbit hops over to him and nuzzles his face. (Thanks to Anton)
