Re: Movies with quite unexpected character deaths (spoilers obviously)

Wow, the guy with Perkinsuns remembers what the doctor forgot.

Deep Blue Sea and Serenity are the ones that always pop to mind for me. Maybe My Girl? Or Bill Paxton's visit to the hospital?

Reminds me of reading Bridge to Terebithia as a kid ... my thought was "what the fuck is this?!"

Deep Blue Sea was immediately what came to mind. That was such a great "oh shit" moment in the theater when no one knew it was coming.

With Deep Blue Sea, I assumed he would die in the first 10 minutes or so. When he didn't and seemed to be sticking around I thought "Maybe he is safe... oh, shark!"

Could also add The Departed for anyone not familiar with the original source material. Lots of examples in that one.
