Every once in a while, you’ll come across a movie fact that will leave you speechless. Several things happen behind the scenes that seem like a joke. Some of them are often laughed about in interviews. Others are kept in the dark. These five film facts are simply unbelievable.

Where’s The Bucket?

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre left a bad taste in audience’s mouths upon its release in 1974. Unfortunately, the film did the same thing with the cast. In between takes, the cast would vomit. “The lights were so damn strong that the bones [they were using as props] started cooking. So every time I’d say cut everyone would run to the window and puke, throw up,” director Tobe Hooper said at SXSW 2014.

I’m On A Boat

“You’re going to need a bigger boat” is one of the most beloved lines in cinema. That particular line wasn’t written in because it fit the scene. Whenever something went awry on set, that line would get tossed around. Actor Roy Scheider decided to toss it in the film for fun. Fortunately, the producers decided to leave it in.

The Dead Broke

As an independent film, The Evil Dead managed to become a massive hit at the box office. It nearly didn’t happen because they kept losing money on the film. “We’d reach stretches where we’d run out of money and have to stop whatever we were doing and put on our suits and get our briefcases and cut our hair short and shave … and go around knocking on doors asking for more money,” director Sam Raimi said.

A Space Destruction

2001: A Space Odyssey is one of the most influential films ever to be released. To prevent other sci-fi films from using his stuff, director Stanley Kubrick destroyed most of the set. In 2015, The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences managed to purchase one of the last items from the movie. The Aries 1B Trans-Lunar Space Shuttle went for $344,000 at an auction.

I Want Candy

As a youth, candy is one of the sweetest things. While filming the early Harry Potters films, the kids hid candy in their robes. Following Prisoner of Azkaban, pockets on the robes were sewn shut. This whole thing started because of Tom Felton. “I think the other kids starting following suit. Wardrobe would put their hand in and it would be chocolate and sweets,” he said at the 2014 Calgary Comic Expo.
