Poor Bastards of Cinema: Village of the Damned (1995)

With so much death, it's hard to pick just one.  It's kind of like the Pringles of pointless deaths.  Even so, I do want to highlight one.

At one point in Village, the Kids are left alone with the Janitor.  Poor 'Buck.'  He offends the kids, so they make him walk up a ladder- backwards- and...
...break at least 3 Laws of Physics.  He somehow impales himself on a wooden broom- one that clearly bounces off from the impact.
So yeah, his death had no purpose.  None at all.

He narrowly beat out the Eye Doctor, but she is only blinded.  She *probably* dies in the Finale, but it's never shown.  Thems the breaks, 'Buck.'
