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 duel role of twins, the Comanche leader is killed when they face off each other in a horse duel.

  • 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.)

(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. (Thanks to ND)
  • 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. (Thanks to Stephen)
  • American Psycho 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. (Thanks to Germboygel)
  • The Wild (animated; 2006) [Kazar]: Killed when Kiefer Sutherland helps cause an avalanche by letting out a loud and mighty roar when Kiefer is trying to save his friends from Shatner's crazy animal cult and while Shatner is laughing maniacally.
  • 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, Jackie Dallas, and AnnMarie Giaquinto escape from the devil's cave. This turns out to be an elusion made by the devil; he survives the movie in reality.
