Thom Mathews (with Charles Rocket) just before his death in 'Down Twisted'
Thom Mathews (1965 - )
The Return of the Living Dead (1985) [Freddy]: Poisoned by exposure to the Trioxin gas and turned into a zombie; he doesn't realize he's already dead until some time after the fact. He is later destroyed (along with everybody else) when the military drops a nuclear bomb on the town to destroy the zombies. (Thanks to Wen)

Dangerously Close (Campus '86; Choice Kill) (1986) [Brian Rigletti]: Killed (off-screen) by Anthony De Longis after Thom decides to report the vigilantes' activities.

Down Twisted (The Treasure of San Lucas) (1987) [Damalas]: Shot in the head (off-camera) by Charles Rocket while Thom is trying to garrote Charles; the scene cuts to white just before we hear the shot.

Return of the Living Dead Part II (1988) [Joey]: Poisoned by exposure to the Trioxin gas and turned into a zombie; he doesn't realize he's already dead until some time after the fact. (Although playing a different character, his fate is almost identical to that in the first movie.) (Thanks to Wen)
