Night of the Living Dead (1968) [Helen Cooper/Bug-Eating Zombie]: Playing a dual role, "Helen" is stabbed repeatedly in the chest and stomach by her zombie daughter (Kyra Schon) in the basement. Her body is shown again afterwards when Duane Jones goes to the basement; she later comes back as a zombie, and is shot in the head by Duane. (We only see Duane firing immediately after she opens her eyes.) She also appears as the "Bug-Eating Zombie" in the crowd of zombies surrounding the house; she is presumably killed once again (off-screen) by the posse of hunters. (Thanks to Robert and Wen)
