- The costume makers in ‘Halloween’ used a stretched out Captain Kirk mask from ‘Star Trek’ for Michael Myers’ now iconic ‘Halloween’ mask worn throughout the film.
- The Exorcist was the first horror film to be nominated for a Best Picture Oscar.
- The original title of the film was Scary Movie, but it was changed to Scream by the Weinstein brothers in the middle of production.
- Wes Craven regrets the ending of Nightmare on Elm Street, he said:
- “I felt that the film should end when Nancy turns her back on Freddy and his violence—that’s the one thing that kills him. Bob wanted to have Freddy pick up the kids in a car and drive off, which reversed everything I was trying to say—it suddenly presented Freddy as triumphant. I came up with a compromise, which was to have the kids get in the convertible, and when the roof comes down, we’d have Freddy’s red and green stripes on it. Do I regret changing the ending? I do, because it’s the one part of the film that isn’t me.”
