Zombi 2 (1979)

Question: How was the underwater shark attack scene done? Things I want to know are : How come the shark didn't attack the actor? And how did all the make up stay on the actor UNDERWATER? Does anyone (also) know how long filming this scene took?

Hamster Premium member

Chosen answer: After the original zombie extra fell ill, the shark handler was made up to play the underwater zombie. ther shark was tame, or at least enough to to not attack the handler. The make up would have been latex/oil based, so it would not have been affected by the water. I remember from the commentary that the filming took 1 or 2 days.

The Shining (1980)

Question: According to many websites including IMDB, it says Staney Kubrick demanded about 128 takes of Shelley DuVall saying a line. Does anybody know this scene and specific line?

Hamster Premium member

Chosen answer: The scene was from when she discovers all his papers just say "All work and no play..." to when she bonks him on the head. That was one continuous scene, with no cuts, and Mr. Kubrick wanted it perfect.
