Ignoble movie deaths

Inspired by the awful demise of BDH's assistant in Jurassic World...

What movie death struck you as a particularly harsh or awful way to go? Besides Jurassic World, the one I always remember is in "Total Recall" Arnold edition. It takes place after Quaid arrives on Mars. THe disguise malfunctions and he has to run.

As he's charging up an escalator, some cops appear at the top and start shooting. Quaid grabs some schlub in front of him and uses him as a shield. Within seconds he's got a shitload of bullets in him and Quaid is holding up a dead body. All i could think was damn, that's awful.

Yours?

Well damn, I thought Richter's death in Total Recall was a hell of a lot worse, losing your arms like that. But for me, Sam MuthaFucka Jackson's death in Deep Blue Sea was da bomb.

To be fair, the cops had already shot and killed that guy before Quaid used him as a shield.

You could probably fill a list with Final Destination and Saw deaths alone.

ED-209 turning Kinney into swiss cheese in Robocop. The unrated version is way worse.

Re: Ignoble movie deaths

In Roland Emmerich's "2012", John Cusack's rival for his wife/ex-wife's attentions (I haven't seen it in a few years so I'm fuzzy on the details) is polished off in a kind of silly (but grisly) fashion, just to get him out of the way. The same thing happens in "San Andreas" where his rival for Carla Gugino is gotten rid of in a pretty ho-hum fashion, again just to get him out of the way. I'd much rather see a Richard Chamberlain in "The Towering inferno" end, where the big giant "rat" goes out in a big way.
Speaking of which, in "Inferno" you have former big star Jennifer Jones as a sweet older woman who saves some kids and makes a love connection with con man Fred Astaire only to be thrown out of an elevator during the final reel.

Disaster movies are full of these kind of deaths....

In a similar vein...

I always thought Mary Ellen Trainor's death in Action Jackson (1988) was brutal, vicious and unnecessary.

Re: Ignoble movie deaths

Just watched "Green Room" and that has quite a few. I have to go with Big Justin getting choked out and then being disemboweled while unconscious is right up there.

William Wallace being hung, drawn and quartered in Braveheart.
Although nothing was really visible in the latter stages, you seemed to feel every cut!

Re: Ignoble movie deaths

Jurassic World beats the toilet lawyer...

Spoiler:
The assistant watching the kids was also planning her wedding when she is snatched by pteranodons. She seems safe until it drops her over the mosasaurus water. Then pteranodons play "catch" with her before one is caught by the mosasarus then she is dragged to her drowning death before being eaten.

Franklin is one of the most annoying characters in film history. It may have been undignified but it was a pleasure to see his whiny ass go!

I think he was frustrated because he wanted to bang his sister. Too bad for him, he wasn't able to bang anything, not even livestock.
