The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain picture

Trivia: When Thomas Two-Stroke is inspecting the car, he surreptitiously breaks something, then claims he has found the problem and shows them the offending piece of the engine. When the two Englishmen ask what it is, he replies that he doesn't know what it is in English, but gives them the supposed name in Welsh. Translated literally, it means "what's it called" - basically, a thingamijig.

Sudden Death picture

Darkman II: The Return of Durant picture

Trivia: Executive Producer Sam Raimi reportedly told co-star Larry Drake that despite his character Durant being killed off a second time at the end of this film, there were plans to bring him back in a later installment once again. Essentially, Durant would become Darkman's version of the Joker or the Green Goblin- a recurring arch-nemesis that never "truly" dies, and is always brought back to life one way or another. Unfortunately, after the release of the third film, no further sequels were commissioned, so this idea never came to be.

Dangerous Minds picture

Trivia: There are articles on-line reporting the murder of "Marisela Gonzales", who was shot by her husband in San Pedro on October 11th or 12th, 2020. There are also questions if Marisela, who played "Angela" in "Dangerous Minds" (1985) is still alive. From the police reports, the correct spelling of the 28-year-old woman killed was "Marisela Gonzalez" - ending with a "z", not "s." The Marisela who played Angela was born in 1968, and is currently 52 - so, obviously, not the 28-year-old murder victim.

Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh picture

Trivia: Bernard Rose, the director of the first film, wrote a script for this sequel that didn't focus on the Candyman character, but rather focused on the impact urban legends have on people. The studio felt the script was too cerebral and instead told Rose that people "just wanted to see Candyman eviscerate victims." A more traditional slasher-film script was then written and used.
