You know it would be better to simply refer to the heading as simply''Age'',since it is now possible to kill a character in a film by making them either too old OR too young.
see an episode of the New Outer Limits called ''Last Supper''where an evil scientist gets regressed past birth.

Pretty horrible way to go,and just as lethal as drinking from the False Grail.

Not sure about this Don, at present we are only really covering movie deaths and not TV shows. As such, I can't think of anyone who is regressed back to conception in a movie. Can anyone else out there?

Most "age" deaths involve the onset of age, in Donovan's case this is an accelerated process.

Dave Bowman, if you say that his experience with the monolith counts as death.

Perhaps,but as a reference for age-related demises,it's still pretty valid.
you don't see very many films OR TV making use of this method to off characters,
outside of the ones that use magic or time -travel as a plot device.


You do see quite a bit of age-related destruction in vampire films though.

They did do that in one of the ''WishMaster'' movies.
This guy runs afoul of the Djinn,and idly wishes that he'd never been born.
The scene that follows is almost exactly done like the one in the Outer Limits episode I posted.
Nothing left of the guy but his clothes.

To narrow that down a bit,it was WishMaster 2.
