Film DeathsEdit

  • Friday the 13th (1980) [Jack Burrell]: Impaled in the back of the neck with an arrow by Betsy Palmer from underneath the bed; the arrow emerges from his throat as she holds him down by the forehead.
  • Flatliners (1990) [David Labraccio]: Is temporarily clinically dead at one point when he deliberately has his heart stopped in the laboratory in order to have an after-life experience. (It's debatable whether this counts, but just in case...)
  • The River Wild (1994) [Wade]: Shot to death by Meryl Streep as he goes to stab her, causing him to be swept away by the currents (his body is later seen when divers retrive him).
  • Murder in the First (1995) [Henri Young]: Dies in prison (off-screen); we learn of his death when Christian Slater gets the news.
  • Wild Things (Sex Crimes) (1998) [Sgt. Ray Duquette]: Drowned when he falls overboard from Matt Dillon's boat, after being shot in the leg and shoulder with a speargun by Neve Campbell.
  • Hollow Man (2000) [Sebastian Caine]: Falls to his death (having first been electrocuted and set on fire, making him partially visible) down a flaming elevator shaft (landing in a fireball, thereby being burned alive in the process). (Nudity alert: Full frontal in a loosely-defined sense; only his muscular & skeletal systems are visible, but not his skin.)
  • Death Sentence (2007) [Nick Hume]: Although his fate is left ambiguous in the original theatrical version, in the unrated version he dies from the neck wound he received in a battle with Garrett Hedlund's gang.
  • Super (2011) [Jacques]: Stabbed repeatedly in the neck and throat (after being shot in the groin with a homemade ballistic knife) by Rainn Wilson.
  • Elephant White (2011) [Jimmy the Britt]: Presumably dies of his gunshot wounds (it's unclear if his injuries are fatal or not, so I thought i'd list this just in case).
  • X-Men: First Class (2011) [Sebastian Shaw]: Killed when Michael Fassbender uses his magnetic powers to propel a coin through Kevin's head, after James McAvoy telepathically freezes Kevin in place (with James only intending to stop Kevin, not meaning to have any part in his death); his body is then levitated out of his submarine by Fassbender's powers.
  • R.I.P.D. (2013) [Bobby Hayes]: Playing a lost soul (having died sometime in the past); he is destroyed by being shot in the head (wiping him from existence in the process) by Ryan Reynolds while he is disguised as James Hong (at this point, Kevin was wearing heavy undead makeup for this role). (Thanks to Tommy)
  • Cop Car (2015) [Sheriff Kretzer]: Possibly killed in a car crash after his truck hits a cow in the road while he's chasing Hays Wellford, in addition to having previously been shot in the stomach in a shoot-out with Shea Whigham; the film ends soon after the crash, leaving his fate ambiguous.
