It’s Max Von Sydow. His character has to be killed off in a genre film no matter what. I think it’s in his contract or something. 😉
Flash Gordon. Impaled on spiked nose of spaceship
Conan The Barbarian. Killed by Thulsa Doom goons. Deleted scene but still counts as a kill.
Strange Brew. Electrocuted by vengeful ghost.
Dune. Stillsuit slashed and left in desert to die.
Dreamscape. Murdered by Blair or his henchmen.
I’m sure there are other examples.
Where were you in '77?
