Film Deaths[]

  • The Serpent and the Rainbow (1988) [Dargent Peytraud]: Burned to death after being set on fire (seemingly from being knocked back into a started inferno) in a struggle with Bill Pullman. He later returns from the dead (due to his powers) and is finally destroyed when Bill ties him to a torture chair allowing the freed souls of all of Zakes' or the Tonton Macoute victims to drag him down to hell (at this point Zakes was wearing heavy burned makeup).
  • A Rage in Harlem (1991) [Big Kathy]: Throat slashed with a razor by either Badja Djola or one of his cohorts. He dies as Gregory Hines kneels by his side as Forest Whitaker looks on in shock.
  • Dust Devil (1992) [Ben Mukurob]: Stabbed in the stomach by Robert John Burke.
  • Waterworld (1995) [Priam]: Presumably killed in a battle with the pirate smokers during their raid on the floating Atoll (it's unclear if he died or not during the siege).NOTE: In the TV version of the film you actually see him get shot. His fate is not shown in the theaterical version of the film.
