Film Deaths[edit | edit source]

  • Prison (1989) [Burke/Charlie Forsythe]: Playing a dual role from two different time periods; Charlie Forsythe is executed in the electric chair back in 1956 (when Lane Smith and the other guards convince or make the executioner pull the switch, despite Charlie possibly being given a stay of execution in light of suppressed evidence), he appears as a ghost or a zombie (played by Kane Hodder in heavy makeup) throughout the film (and presumably returns to the afterlife when Lane dies). Burke survives the film.
  • Daylight (1996) [Roy Nord]: Crushed in the mid-river passage as it collapses.
  • Alatriste (2006) [Diego Alatriste]: Killed (off-screen) at the Battle of Rocroi. The movie ends with a freeze frame of Viggo and his men charging against the French soldiers, but his fate is strongly implied.
  • The Road (2009) [Man]: Dies of an infected wound after being shot in the leg with an arrow by Buddy Sosthand (on top of suffering from a severe respiratory infection); his death is confirmed when his son (Kodi Smit-McPhee) fails to wake him up.
  • A Dangerous Method (2011) [Sigmund Freud]: Dies from cancer (off-screen) years after the film ends. His death is revealed in onscreen text at the end of the film.
  • The Two Faces of January (2014) [Chester MacFarland]: Shot in the back by Mehmet Esen or Okan Avci at the end of a lengthy chase through Istanbul as Oscar Isaac looks on in shock. He dies while talking to Oscar (who is wearing a wire) as he confesses his crimes.
