The tragedy is not that we are alone, but that we cannot be. At times I would give anything in the world to no longer be connected by anything to this universe of men.

#11.  The Return Of The Living Dead (1985)

Directed by Dan O’Bannon

Quotes

  • You think this is a fuckin’ costume? This is a way of life. - Suicide
  • I can feel myself rot. - Torso Zombie
  • Send more cops! - Zombie
  • More BRAINS! - Tarman
  • Do you ever wonder about all the different ways of dying? You know, violently? And wonder, like, what would be the most horrible way to die? - Trash

Trivia

  • The two heroes of the movie are names Burt and Ernie, obviously an ironic reference to the popular Sesame Street (1969) characters, right? Wrong. Turns out Dan O’Bannon didn’t know he was using the names of the two beloved children’s show’s puppets.
  • Some of the zombie extras were paid more to eat real calf brains in the film. Dan O’Bannon didn’t want the actors to do anything he wasn’t willing to do and ate some raw calf brains first in front of them.
  • John A. Russo wrote a script called “The Return of the Living Dead” at the same time that George A. Romero was doing Dawn of the Dead (1978). An independent producer, Tom Fox, bought Russo’s script. He set up production and gave the script to Dan O’Bannon. O’Bannon refused to direct it as it was written. He felt that it was too much of a serious attempt at making a sequel to Night of the Living Dead (1968), and did not want to “…intrude so directly on Romero’s turf.” It was re-written with more humor.
  • When shooting Trash’s (Linnea Quigley’s) grave stone dance, she initially was completely naked and showed pubic hair, as was more the norm in the early 80’s. However, producer Graham Henderson visited the shoot that day, and according to himself and others, threw a fit, yelling at Dan O’Bannon that “You can’t show pubic hair on television”. Dan sent Linnea away and had her completely shaved, which coincidently, Linnea herself found to be the most embarrassing part of the whole thing. Then they did another shoot, to which Graham Henderson cried out “Oh god it’s even worse, you can see everything!”. At this point they sent Linnea Quigley over to Bill Munz and William Stout, where they made an alginate crotch piece, resembling the bottom of a g-string and glued it on. According to Linnea, this was a bit of a problem, since every time she had to go to the bathroom, they had to remove it. Because of this, there are no shots of Linnea with a completely naked crotch area.
  • Tobe Hooper was originally slated to direct and it was supposed to be filmed in 3-D.

#15.  The Shining

Directed by Stanley Kubrick

Quotes

  • Some places are like people: some shine and some don’t. - Dick Hallorann
  • Come and play with us, Danny. Forever… and ever… and ever. - The Grady Twins
  • Wendy? Darling? Light, of my life. I’m not gonna hurt ya. You didn’t let me finish my sentence. I said, I’m not gonna hurt ya. I’m just going to bash your brains in. - Jack Torrance
  • Redrum. Redrum.  Redrum! - Danny Torrance

Trivia

  • Because Danny Lloyd was so young and since it was his first acting job, Stanley Kubrick was highly protective of the child. During the shooting of the movie, Lloyd was under the impression that the film he was making was a drama, not a horror movie. In fact, when Wendy carries Danny away while shouting at Jack in the Colorado Lounge, she is actually carrying a lifesize dummy so Lloyd would not have to be in the scene. He only realized the truth several years later, when he was shown a heavily edited version of the film. He did not see the uncut version of the film until he was 17 - eleven years after he had made it.
  • Both Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall have expressed open resentment against the reception of this film, feeling that critics and audiences credited Stanley Kubrick solely for the film’s success without considering the efforts of the actors, crew or the strength of Stephen King’s underlying material. Both Nicholson and Duvall have said that the film was one of the hardest of their careers; in fact, Nicholson considers Duvall’s performance the most difficult role he’s ever seen an actor take on. Duvall also considers her performance the hardest of her life.
  • For the scene in which Jack breaks down the bathroom door, the props department built a door that could be easily broken. However, Jack Nicholson had worked as a volunteer fire marshal and tore it apart far too easily. The props department were then forced to build a stronger door.
  • According to Shelley Duvall the infamous ‘Heere’s Johnny!’ scene took 3 days to film and the use of 60 doors.
  • Stanley Kubrick considered both Robert De Niro and Robin Williams for the role of Jack Torrance but decided against both of them. Kubrick did not think De Niro would suit the role after watching his performance in Taxi Driver (1976), as he deemed De Niro not psychotic enough for the role. He did not think Williams would suit the role after watching his performance on Mork & Mindy (1978), as he deemed him too psychotic for the role. According to Stephen King, Kubrick also briefly considered Harrison Ford.
  • The color red is visible, either overtly or subtly, in nearly every shot of the film.
  • Scatman Crothers was friends with Jack Nicholson, and when he heard about the Halloran role, he asked Nicholson to talk to Stanley Kubrick about casting him.

Collaboration work between painter Leonora Carrington & Alexandro Jodorowsky in Mexico, 1957.

"During a party, Luis Buñuel, seduced by Carrington’s beauty and emboldened by the notion that she had transcended all bourgeois morality, proposed (with his characteristic bluntness) that she become his mistress. Without even waiting for her answer, he gave her the key to the secret studio that he used as a love nest and told her to meet him at three o’clock the next afternoon. Early the next morning, Leonora went to visit the place alone. She found it tasteless: It looked exactly like a motel room. Taking advantage of the fact that she was in her menstrual period, she covered her hands with blood and used them to make bloody handprints all over the walls in order to provide a bit of decoration for that anonymous, impersonal room. Buñuel never spoke to her again.”
