His final movie role was that of Bill Connor in 1983's The Twilight Zone: The Movie. While he was filming an alternate "redemptive" ending for his segment, a helicopter went out of control and crash-landed near Morrow. None of the crew members was hurt, but Vic and two other (child) actors were caught by a broken rotor-blade and killed instantly. Fellow Twilight Zone veteran Boris Sagal (he directed "the Silence") met a very similar fate, just months later, while shooting the movie World War 3 on location. Both Sagal and Morrow had, twenty years earlier, worked together on the pilot episode of Combat.
