Does a family member die?

Browse movies, tv shows, books and more where a family member dies.
It's good that there's a category for parents dying, but there currently isn't a category for family members in general dying. This can include siblings, cousins, aunts/uncles, etc; those who have lost a loved one (especially recently) may find it triggering, and it's generally upsetting to most. This especially goes if the death is a particularly emotional scene or if the character was very close to the deceased family member.

The plot opens with the murder-suicide of Dani's sister and her parents. Early into the movie Dani receives a worrying email from her sister, who has been troubled for a long time. She tries contacting her back and asking their parents, but no success. It's revealed that her sisterfilled the house with car fumes, killing everyone outside. The aftermath is portrayed graphically, as we see the parents' bodies laying in bed and the sister with a hose attached to her mouth, with bloodshot eyes and vomit on her clothes. Shortly after, we see Dani's reaction as she has a panic attack at home. The grief Dani feels at the loss of her family is an overarching theme, as she's still recovering, which allows the cult to lovebomb her. Pele also mentions losing his parents in a fire, which is used as a way to get her to relate to him and thus allow herself to be further lovebombed.

Yes. It’s pretty sad and disturbing how they die, especially the youngest daughter having to see most of her family as deadites. They are visibly dead and corpse-like, though they can walk and speak.

Abulroier, Roiers grandfather was killed by Cellbit (though he was brought back by the federation later) and this caused a lot of strain on their relationship.

The eggs (children) operate on a two-life system, and four of them have permanently died as of writing this. The rest of them- aside from Pomme -are all on one life.

The father of the main characters is killed in the first few minutes of the film by debris falling from the sky. A sitcom about a fictional family comes to a violent end when a chimpanzee rampages on set, maiming the actor playing the mother and killing the actor playing the father. A crowd of several dozen people, including families, become trapped and are killed offscreen. A woman's brother appears to sacrifice his life near the end of the film.
