Quills (2000) [Madeleine LeClerc]: Stabbed in the chest (off-screen) with scissors by Stephen Marcus in the asylum; her body is shown afterwards when Joaquin Phoenix and Billie Whitelaw discover her in a laundry vat. Later on, her body is shown again when Joaquin visits her in the morgue; this scene is revealed to be a dream sequence when Kate suddenly comes back to life and begins making love with him, only to turn back into a corpse right before Joaquin wakes up. (Nudity alert: Topless)
