Ok, to be fair, most of these are in horror or summer action/disaster films, and occasionally cop films.

only rule is that any movie featuring actual Cassandra is disallowed.

I nominate

Dr Loomis


nobody ever fuckin' believes him

but damn if he knows the body count Michael will wreak, right down to what he's feeling.


John McClane in Die Hard 2

Denis Franz literally has to be faux-shot with a machine gun to realize John's telling the truth

don't stop.

keep it goin

I'm just glad to see that you are acknowledging that part of being a 'Cassandra' is that your warnings of approaching calamity, though ignored or not believed, are entirely correct, which is not at all like a 'Boy Who Cries Wolf' or a 'Chicken Little'.
