Film Deaths[]

  • Incubus (1965) [Marc]: Stabbed in the stomach during a struggle with Milos Milos outside William's home. William manages to stagger into a church for sanctuary and forgiveness, where he and Allyson Ames die in each others' arms (though the movie ends before they actually die).
  • White Comanche (1968) [Johnny Moon/Comanche leader]: In a dual role of twins, the Comanche leader is killed when they face off each other in a horse duel.
  • Big Bad Mama (1974) [William J. Baxter]: Machine-gunned by Tom Skerritt after Tom realizes that William tipped them off to the police.
  • Impulse (I Love to Kill; Want a Ride, Little Girl?) (1974) [Matt Stone]: Stabbed in the back by Kim Nicholas while William is trying to strangle Jennifer Bishop.
  • The Devil's Rain (1975) [Mark Preston]: Melts (along with the rest of the cultists) after he smashes a container filled with human souls, unleashing the Devil's Rain.
  • Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991) [Captain James T. Kirk]: Vaporized with a phaser by William Morgan Sheppard. It is actually Iman disguised as Shatner, so the death scene is being included for both people. (The real "Kirk" survives the movie.)
  • National Lampoon's Loaded Weapon 1 (1993) [General Curtis Mortars]:Shot in the chest/shoulder by Kathy Ireland, later shot twice in the stomach and chest by Samuel L. Jackson. (Played for comic effect)
  • Star Trek Generations (1994) [Captain James Tiberius Kirk]: Mortally injured in the collapse of a bridge that had been blasted with a ray-gun by Malcolm McDowell; William dies shortly afterwards while talking to Patrick Stewart. (An alternate scene was filmed in which Malcolm shoots William in the back.)
  • Dead Man's Island (1996) [Chase Prescott]: Commits suicide, arranging it to look like a murder.
  • Land of the Free (1997) [Aiden Cardell]: Drowned in a pond by Jeff Speakman. We only see Jeff holding William under, and William's body is not shown afterwards.
  • Falcon Down (2001) [Major Robert Carson]: Killed along with Donald Li and the rest of the crew of his submarine when the experimental aircraft they were towing floods and pulls the submersible to its crush depth.
  • American Psyco 2: All-American Girl (2002) [Professor Robert Starkman]: Falls out of a window when Mila Kunis approaches him after she confesses to killing Lindy Booth.
  • The Wild (animated; 20O6) [Kazar]: Playing woice of wildebeest. he exploded (0ff-screen) by erupting volcano.
  • Batman vs. Two-Face (animated; 2017) [Two-Face/Harvey Dent]: Voicing two personalities (from the effect of a formula), his 'Harvey Dent' persona ceases when the 'Two-Face' persona 'overtakes' it. Then later the 'Two-Face' persona ceases when Batman (voiced by Adam West) forces and makes his 'Harvey Dent' persona out again, overtake it and stays that way. (I don't know if this would even count as a 'temporary' death scene, but I'll list it in case).
  • Tomb: Devil's Revenge (2019) [Hayes]: Killed in an explosion after sacrificing himself to let Jason Brooks, Jeri Ryan, and Ciara Hanna and Robert Scott Wilson to escape from the devil's cave. This turns out to be an illusion made by the devil; he survives the movie in reality.
