#2 - Chucky the doll's full name is Charles Lee Ray. He's named after a group of famous killers; Charles Manson, Lee Harvey & James Earl Ray.
#3 - The shower scene in Psycho took a week to film and it includes 77 different camera angles in just a 3 minute scene. You never see the knife actually pierce Janet Leigh.
#4 - Grindhouse (2007) Double Feature has had the most on screen deaths in any horror film adding up to 310 Deaths in total.
#5 - Paranormal Activity spooked Steven Spielberg so bad that he had to finish the movie in the morning. He claims as the film didn't have a script it gave the characters more authenticity. They were given general directions and ad-libbed their lines.
#6 - Poltergeist (1982) - Actresses Heather O'Rourke (Carol Ann) and Dominique Dunne (Dana) both died at very early stages in their life after filming. 12 & 22. Many people believe that the film is cursed, another two actors also died via relatively normal circumstances Will Sampson (Surgery issues) and Julian Beck (Cancer).
#7 CandyMan's ever so famous Bee scene is actually filmed with real bee's. The only thing preventing him from swallowing them is a mouth guard designed for the scene. The bee's are only around 12 days old, they are full size but their string hasn't developed properly yet.
#8 - It took about a year to get the iconic shot in where blood pours out of the elevator in The Shining right, but only three days to film.
#9 - If you play the movie frame by frame, in the exact moment when Katie Embry is scared to death at the beginning of the movie, you can see all the chilling images that appear on the video. Each image appears for just a fraction of a second. The effect is repeated again at the end of the movie.
#10 - For the London scenes, police would close the roads for about an hour usually at 4 a.m., and filming would begin immediately. The producers wisely predicted that asking from the drivers, especially clubbers heading home after a long, wild night of drinking, either wait for an hour or find another route home might make most of them mad. So they brilliantly hired several sexy young ladies (including Danny Boyle’s daughter) to make the necessary requests and, as expected, the drivers responded with patience and pleasure.
