|The Young Ones: Bambi (1984) [Miss Money-Sterling]: Killed in a (comical) explosion when Adrian Edmondson throws a grenade at her team during a game show; we only see a flash of light & smoke, then four empty seats where her team had been.
Dead Again (1991) [Amanda 'Grace' Sharp/Margaret Strauss]: Playing a dual role in the movie's two time periods, "Margaret" is stabbed repeatedly with a pair of scissors by Gregor Hesse. The murder is shown in silhouette, and her body is shown afterwards when Kenneth Branagh discovers her. ("Grace" survives the movie.)
Carrington (1995) [Dora Carrington]: Commits suicide by shooting herself in the chest with a shotgun; we hear the shot after the scene cuts away, and her body is not shown afterwards. (Thanks to David)
Wit (2001) [Professor Vivian Bearing]: Dies of ovarian cancer in her hospital bed while a team of doctors unsuccessfully attempt to resuscitate her. (Nudity alert: Topless)
I Am Legend (2007) [Dr. Alice Krippen]: Presumably dies (off-screen) of the genetically-engineered virus she created; her fate is unconfirmed (her only appearance is in a TV interview discussing the virus at the beginning of the movie), but considering how few survivors there are, it seems likely that she died.
Brideshead Revisited (2008) [Lady Marchmain]: Dies (off-screen) of an unspecified illness.
