A View to a Kill picture

Trivia: The disclaimer, "Neither the name Zorin nor any other name or character in this film is meant to portray a real company or actual person" was added after the producers discovered a real company known as Zoran Ladicorbic Ltd, whose industry was fashion design. This is the first Bond film to begin with a disclaimer.

Witness picture

Trivia: Harrison Ford was very taken with the Amish and the beautiful scenery in which Witness was filmed.

Day of the Dead picture

Trivia: Real pig guts were used for the scene where Joe Pilato (Rhodes) is ripped in half. The guts were accidentally left out of the freezer for the weekend and so were rotten when they were used. The stench was so bad that everybody ran off the set once they finished.

A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge picture

Trivia: Make-up effects artist Kevin Yagher replaced David Miller, who designed the Freddy make-up for the original. Yagher only had a few pictures and what was shot from the original film to refer to, so he redesigned Freddy's look. Yagher studied pictures of burn victims and brought out the facial bones more than how Miller had done it.

Fright Night picture

Trivia: This can only be seen for a brief second on the widescreen side of the DVD. In the scene where Dandridge follows Charlie and Amy in Club Radio, there is a man standing by a mirrored column, and Dandridge walks behind him, and for a second you can see Dandridge's shoulder reflected in the mirror. Vampires do not have reflections.

Scrappy
Runaway Train picture

Trivia: This is, the way I see it, a VERY serious mistake by the filming crew of the movie. The Alaska Railroad, where the shooting of the movie took place, wanted all their logos and paint schemes of all the trains in the movie to be camouflaged. But yet, on the first shot of the locomotive of Eastbound 12 (yes, that is the shot of it before it mysteriously changes from ONE GP40 to TWO ALCo MRS's), you can see the blue and yellow paint scheme of the Alaska Railroad. On the DVD you might even be able to see the printed ALASKA on the side of the loco.

To Live and Die in LA picture

Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins... picture

Trivia: Chiun says that he is from a village called Sinanju in Korea, and that all martial arts descend from Sinanju, the perfect martial art. In the name of the village, Chiun was telling the truth; it does exist in North Korea. However, the martial art Sinanju is bogus.
