Awakenings picture

Trivia: During the scene where Robin Williams (the doctor) has to restrain Robert DeNiro (the patient), Robin accidentally broke DeNiro's nose. DeNiro insisted that they continue with the filming until the scene was completed because he knew, from prior experience, that he wouldn't be able to film for at least a week, until the swelling and bruising went down. And DeNiro actually was glad it happened because it corrected the bump from the prior broken nose.

Nightbreed picture

Trivia: The post-production process of the film was very dramatic.

Director Clive Barker also maintains that the film wasn't marketed properly. A Director's Cut of the film (containing much of the cut footage) was announced more than 20 years after the film's original release-date.
