Trivia

The film was intended to open with a much more gruesome depiction of a corpse on fire. A realistic body was constructed with plastic bones and latex rubber skin and set ablaze. As filming wrapped that evening, crew members and onlookers took pieces of the fake corpse as souvenirs. Unfortunately, the footage from that shoot was destroyed during developing and portions of the charred body couldn't be tracked down for re-shoots. See more »
