This movie is enough to give even the most style-savvy of people some fashion phobia. “In Fabric” answers the question (you likely never thought to ask) “What would happen if my dress was haunted?” The answer? Well, it wouldn’t be pretty.
Wearers of the firey (pun very much intended here) red frock face horrific fates. As the pages of “Vogue” will tell you, fashion is pain! The most frightening part of the film is finding out what the fabric of the dress is made out of. That we’ll let you discover on your own…The film’s rather off-beat plot and sadistically-surreal scenes have made it a polarizing film even for the most cinema-obsessed.
Alfred Hitchcock's famous horror-thriller “The Birds” not only filled audiences with fear and dread but the film's lead actress Tippi Hedren as well! Hitchcock and Hedren's on-set relationship was infamously strained, which stirred up controversy around the film.
It was reported that Hitchcock used real birds in the film, which meant that Hedren had to spend days on end being attacked by birds. The continuous feathered onslaught left Tippy almost seriously injured and mentally exhausted.
Leonardo DiCaprio is known for being a method actor, completely committing to his roles in every film he's been a part of, and 2015's "The Revenant" was no exception. DiCaprio played Hugh Glass, a tough frontiersman that is badly injured by a bear attack and abandoned by his crew to survive in the wilderness on his own.
To fully embody the character, DiCaprio decided to stick to a purely raw meat diet (which was especially hard, considering he's a vegan) and sleep in animal carcasses. Not to mention the almost unbearable icy weather conditions while shooting and an almost endless barrage of quitting crew members, it's safe to say the blood, sweat, and tears went into the role that eventually landed him an Academy Award. Was it worth it though?
Successfully remaking a classic Hollywood film is no easy feat. While the all-female 2016 remake of "Ghostbusters" was fairly well-received by film critics, it was audiences who "ghosted" the reboot. It just didn't meet the mark.
Audiences didn't warm to the idea of an all-female ghostbuster squad, some even calling the casting a "gimmick." However, most of the distaste targeted towards the film was rooted in divided politicized opinions as opposed to the film itself.
Stephen King's novel "The Shining" revolves around Jack Torrance (played by the inimitable Jack Nicholson), caretaker of the Overlook Hotel who slowly descends into madness.
Although Stanley Kubrik's film adaption is regarded as a classic, it's not without its controversies. Not only did King hate the depiction of his story on screen, but the working conditions on set were infamously harsh for the cast and crew. This was especially true for Shelley Duvall who has said that her time on that set was “almost unbearable." Yep, that's what happens when you make your actors perform the same scene over 127 times!
