All I can remember is that it was a bit post apocalyptic and there was a heavy magic theme. People had magical abilities. And to demonstrate this, and introduce the villain, a man is killed in a bathroom by newspaper. Yes, death by paper cuts, swirling newspapers around this guy in a bathroom until he drops dead. I remember this running on Showtime or HBO in the early 90's so it was made between about 85-95, just guessing. I have been trying to find this movie for years and would love some help.

Cast a Deadly Spell with Fred Ward. A pretty good mash-up of Philip Marlowe and H.P. Lovecraft.

I kind of prefer the sort-of sequel Witch Hunt, but they're both pretty good.

Every dead body that is not exterminated becomes one of them. It gets up and kills. The people it kills, get up and kill.

Was it newspaper or playing cards in that movie?  For some reason I thought it was playing cards, but either myself or the OP could be misremembering that detail.  Still, I very much agree with Mofo Rising's answer.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
