9 Strange Movie Facts You Probably Didn’t Know Until Now…

1. O.J. Simpson almost played the Terminator, but James Cameron thought his persona was “too pleasant” to portray such a dark character.

2. The sound of the velociraptors communicating with each other in Jurassic Park is actually the sound of tortoises mating.

3. The big scene in Pulp Fiction where Vincent stabs Mia in the heart with a needle was actually shot in reverse. So really, John Travolta was pulling the needle out of her.


4. While filming Poltergeist, Robbie truly got choked during a take by the robot clown doll — it wasn’t until the boy turned purple that Spielberg realized what was actually happening.

5. Ben Affleck and Matt Damon put a gay sex scene in the original Good Will Hunting script, just to see who’d actually read it. Harvey Weinstein noticed the out-of-place scene, and was thus hired.

6. Scream was somewhat based on a real ’90s Florida murder spree.

7. Tony Todd put actual bees in his mouth while filming this scary Candyman scene.


8. Joe Pesci actually bit Macaulay Culkin while filming this Home Alone scene.
