Horror Movie Facts You May Not Knowby IMDb-Editors | last updated - 11 months ago
Fresh from the trivia pages of IMDb, here are some facts about classic and contemporary horror films.
Get Out (2017)
The translation of the main theme, "Sikiliza Kwa Wahenga," is: "Brother, run! Listen to the elders. Listen to the truth. Run away! Save yourself."
First American film ever to show a toilet flushing on screen.
Night of the Living Dead (1968)
When the zombies are eating the bodies in the burnt-out truck they were actually eating roast ham covered in chocolate sauce. The filmmakers joked that it was so nausea-inducing that it was almost a waste of time putting the makeup on the zombies, as they ended up looking pale and sick anyway.
The Monster in this film does not physically resemble the character in Mary Shelley's novel. It was make-up artist Jack P. Pierce who came up with innovations such as the Monster's flat head, the bolts through the neck, the droopy eyelids, and the poorly-fitted suit. Any future Frankenstein film that features any of these physical abnormalities is taking its inspiration from Pierce's make-up work.
Shaun of the Dead (2004)
Chris Martin of Coldplay, who appears as himself on a news report near the end of the film promoting ZombAid, also plays a zombie. After Shaun and Liz escape from the basement of the Winchester, he can be seen playing the zombie walking past the phone booth from right to left.
Land of the Dead (2005)
Director George A. Romero was so impressed with Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright's Shaun of the Dead (2004), that he asked them to appear in this, the fourth part of his "Dead" series. They appear as the photo-booth zombies in the carnival and barroom sequence. They also feature prominently in this artwork for the Unrated Director's Cut.
Let the Right One In (2008)
The final time that Oskar and Eli use Morse code to communicate, they tap out the letters P-U-S-S, which is Swedish for "small kiss."
