John 'Bud' Cardos in 'Satan's Sadists'
John 'Bud' Cardos (1929 - )
Director
Satan's Sadists (Nightmare Bloodbath) (1969) [Firewater]: Fatally injured when he falls down a mountainside (and is partially buried by a rockslide) during a fight with Gary Kent; he dies shortly after Gary makes his way down to John's side.

Five Bloody Graves (1970) [Joe Lightfoot/Setago]: Playing a dual role, "Joe" is shot to death with arrows by several Yaqui warriors under "Setago's" orders. "Setago" is drowned in the river after being carried away by the rapids at the end of a struggle with Robert Dix.

Act of Piracy (1990) [Steward]: Shot in the back by Nancy Mulford after he goes to check on her cabin.

(Note: As a professional stunt performer, John has probably "died" in place of several other actors, though I don't know any specific examples.)
