Look up crime fiction author Eugene Izzi for a truly bizarre death story.

And here's a bit on writer Boris Vian:

On the morning of 23 June 1959, Vian was at the Cinema Marbeuf for the screening of the film version of I will Spit on Your Graves. He had already fought with the producers over their interpretation of his work, and he publicly denounced the film, stating that he wished to have his name removed from the credits. A few minutes after the film began, he reportedly blurted out: "These guys are supposed to be American? My ass!" He then collapsed into his seat and died from sudden cardiac death en route to the hospital.[3]

Great story, Dan. Having seen the movie, I believe it.
