Bloopers That’ll Change The Way You See These Horror Movies

Posted by


You can’t make a great horror movie without
also making a few mistakes. The final girl bursts out laughing during
her big escape scene; the blood-spewing machine malfunctions and saturates the entire set;
the flesh-eating swamp monster trips over his own tentacles and falls down a flight
of stairs. Sometimes these clips get relegated to the
gag reel, while in other cases they’re so good they end up in the final film. Either way, here’s a look at some great bloopers
that will change the way you see these horror movies. The Cabin in the Woods Joss Whedon’s 2012 entry into the horror genre
was typically tongue-in-cheek, filled with intentional, hilarious subversions of various
scary movie tropes — including the epic finale, in which a virtual encyclopedia of
monsters escape from their cells and annihilate the technicians who’ve been holding them captive. But while the carnage of that last act was
planned, one of its best scenes was the beneficiary of a happy little accident. Specifically, we’re talking about the scene
where actor Bradley Whitford is eaten by the merman. The scene itself was cool, but the best part
is what comes after. “Ah, come on…” The blowhole shooting is hilarious. But it’s also not what the filmmakers originally
planned. With only the one scene to shoot, the effects
crew decided to use their entire remaining supply of fake blood. So instead of a little burp of blood, the
merman blew like Old Faithful—and kept on blowing, until the blood ran out and the geyser-like
effect was replaced by a farty red mist. Effects master David LeRoy Anderson of AFX
later said, “I love the wide shot in the behind-the-scenes video where the blood keeps going and going,
because it reminds me of that night, which was just hysterical. I kept thinking, ‘How are they going to use
this? He’s sitting there flapping like a fish, and
it looks like a hose spraying blood everywhere!’ But the way they cut it together was perfect.” Scream In 1996, Wes Craven’s sendup of the slasher
genre heralded the dawn of a new wave of smart, sleek, self-aware horror films. The special effects, however, were the same
tried-and-true practical techniques directors have relied on for years, including the use
of corn syrup to simulate blood. And in a movie where it seemed like someone
was stabbed every other minute, things were extremely sloppy and sticky on set by
the time the film reached its thrilling climax. This led to a hilarious unplanned exchange,
when Skeet Ulrich lost control of the blood-covered phone and accidentally winged it right at
Matthew Lillard’s head, leading to a very genuine reaction from the surprised actor. “Ahh. F—— hit me with the phone, D—!” Ordinarily, an outburst like that might have
led to a shout of “Cut!” and a request to do the scene again. But according to the Scream DVD commentary,
because Lillard was supposed to be playing the doofy sidekick to Ulrich’s cold-blooded
psychopath, his reaction wasn’t out of character. Craven went ahead and kept it safely off the
cutting room floor. As it turned out, it was a wise move; not
only did the line make it to the final cut, it’s one of the funniest moments in the movie. Another of the funniest moments in Scream
can only be seen in the blooper reel, though, and it comes courtesy of the director himself. Wes Craven, who also directed the classic
A Nightmare on Elm Street, made a cameo in Scream dressed as Nightmare villain Freddy
Krueger. That was fun enough, but in one outtake, he
a gift for physical comedy that fans wish had made the final film. Scream 3 The third entry in the Scream franchise was
also improved by an on-camera mistake. The exciting conclusion to Wes Craven’s Scream
trilogy is full of scripted suspense, but one of its most action-packed fight scenes
has a big blooper right in the middle. According to an encyclopedic collection of
Scream 3 trivia, the confrontation between Neve Campbell and Scott Foley includes an
actual, genuine stabbing, in the moment where Sidney leaps over a bar and nails Roman in
the back with an ice pick. Foley was wearing a protective pad for the
scene, but Campbell missed her mark and plunged the pick into Foley’s actual flesh. No wonder his scream of surprise and pain
seems so genuine! The Descent A terrifying movie in which a bunch of young
women are stalked and slayed while exploring a darkened cave system gets even more frightening
when The Descent adds in a bunch of subterranean monsters want to eat their delicious flesh. That’s why it’s so funny on the blooper reel
when one of the victims, whose face is all deformed from unspeakable things, gives one
of the humans an unexpected moment of romance. “Love you..” House of Wax The 2005 remake of the ’50s horror classic
House of Wax starred WB heartthrobs such as Chad Michael Murray from One Tree Hill, Jared
Padalecki from Gilmore Girls…and socialite, reality star, and night vision camera owner
Paris Hilton. To her credit, the often dispassionate Hilton
gives everything she’s got to her performance as a scream queen, shrieking
as the script requires. The screaming is intentionally annoying, but
still not nearly as annoying as actual the car alarm that went off during a scene in
the woods, ruining the shot. Scream 4 Acting can be magical when a director gets
a perfect, believable reaction from a performer — like one of abject terror in a horror
movie, for example. Or, you can just pull a prank on an actor
on a set of a horror movie and scare him for real. On the set of Scream 4, Erik Knudsen was apparently
supposed to open a door and find nothing there. Instead of nothing, however, there was something
— something actually pretty frightening, especially if you’re not expecting it. “Ahh S—!” Halloween Star Malcolm McDowell is always an imposing
presence who dominates every scene he’s in, whether he’s playing the hero, an antihero,
or a villain. In Rob Zombie’s 2007 version of Halloween,
he plays Dr. Samuel Loomis, the former psychiatrist of the crazed psycho, Michael Myers. Myers eventually comes for Dr. Loomis, of
course, and he cowers in fear in a darkened house. But when Myers smashes through the door to
get him, McDowell seems taken off guard. Apparently he didn’t realize they were filming
that bit yet. “You must be f—— joking!” That Halloween reboot must have been a pretty
lively set to work on, because its blooper reel offers up another goofy outtake. What’s so funny about being stabbed? As far as actor Ken Foree is concerned, everything. While Michael Myers repeatedly stabs him with
a prop knife and fake blood audibly oozes everywhere, Foree gets a case of the giggles
that simply won’t die. Jennifer’s Body Oscar winner Diablo Cody wrote the screenplay
for Jennifer’s Body, which offered character relationships a bit more complex than those
in the average horror movie. Over the course of the film, nerdy Anita,
played by Amanda Seyfried, comes to both love and hate her best friend, popular cheerleader-turned
fatal succubus Jennifer, played by Megan Fox. Those mixed feelings physically manifest in
a scene in which Seyfried screams accusatory things at Fox’s character…and then kisses
her. Or at least she tries to kiss her, as Fox
is apparently so deep into her monstrous character that she takes a bite out of her costar. “I actually bit her. I’m sorry.” The Witch One of the most truly haunting horror movies
in years was The Witch. It features an atmospheric setting in colonial
Massachusetts, and it’s paired with the scary premise that the witches of the Salem Witch
Trial era just might have been real. There’s tons of weird stuff in The Witch,
from dark woods to kidnapping to naked people drinking blood to a goat named Black Phillip
that a pair of creepy twins says talks to them. But what’s not so scary, though? Horses. Particularly horses needing to go about their
horse bodily functions with no regard for the very expensive film production happening
right in front of them. “If you don’t let me alone with ya, I’ll wake
mother and father this instant.” The Silence of the Lambs Anthony Hopkins deservedly won an Academy
Award for Best Actor for his performance as cannibalistic psychopath Hannibal Lecter
in The Silence of the Lambs. Famously, it was one of only a handful of
horror movies to ever take home major Oscars. Hopkins is one the best actors in the world,
and as such, is quite versatile — he played an American president in Nixon, and a repressed
English butler in The Remains of the Day. He even played Rocky Balboa once. No, really, he did. While his face and shirt were covered in blood
during a twisted and hilarious outtake on the set of The Silence of the Lambs, he brought
his inner Rocky out for the world to see. “This one’s for you Adrian. Not you, Pauly. Let’s go for it. Rocky V. Let’s do it now. That goes on the F—— box.” Even cannibals need to laugh now and then. Shaun of the Dead Zombie-driven horror comedy Shaun of the Dead
made a movie star out of Simon Pegg. It also reunited the actor with his collaborators
from the cult British sitcom Spaced, including director Edgar Wright and costar Nick Frost. They’re all good friends and seem to share
the same comedy hive mind, which means Pegg and Frost frequently ad-libbed and goofed
off on the set of Shaun of the Dead, ruining takes but cracking up each other and anybody
else in the vicinity. “Oh ah over here over here over here… Oh bullocks. Ok, ah.. F— it. F— off. Back the f—- up.” Now, why don’t Rick and the rest of the gang
on Walking Dead just try that next time? Thanks for watching! Click the Looper icon to subscribe to our

  1. Paris Hilton's "scream" had to be dubbed in by a voice actress. Her actual "scream" is on the blooper reel and sounds like a sick camel.

  2. I liked the black cop guy going in for a bro hug with the killer when the other one is knocked over. Could be an actual scene? Idk but funny none the less.

  3. The witch, haunting? lol I love how some people are so frightened of the most boring bland "horror" movies just because they try to be different from the usual stuff. Different doesn't mean scary, haunting or intelligent. That film bored the hell out of me and most people I know of who watched it either turned it off after half an hour or did nothing but complain about how dull it was. All it is, is talking, farming, talking, farming, talking some more, oh and a kid goes missing, then someone gets possesed, followed by more talking until at the end, oh the kids part of a covern, as revealed in the final 30 seconds. Got to be one of the worst so called horror movies I've ever seen. And I sat through Prom night, Blair Witch 2 and The Gallows.

  4. HONESTLY every time i watch movies n shit, I always think to myself "Imagine the actor" and try to imagine what it was like to film it. i'd definitely laugh on sets like horror films

  5. I actually was surprised at how well Hilton acted in House of Wax. She did a better job than a ton of other "actors" in the horror genre.

  6. Does anybody know that horror movie when at the end there’s this giant parasite inside a girl and she cuts off her skin?

  7. you left out

    SCREAM 2
    when
    NEVE CAMPBELL
    as
    SYDNEY PRESSCOTT
    crawled over
    GHOSTFACE
    in the front seat of the
    police car
    and put her knee right into
    the stuntman's balls

  8. whatever the narrator describes as "hillariously funny" has to be lamest and least funniest scenes ever… sad

  9. Whoa whoa whoa whoa! I really need an answer here… is it pronounced "Josh" Whedon, or have I been right all these years?

  10. "Nightcamera vision owner" haha slick throwing shade at Paris Hilton for the sextape a night in Paris 😂😂😂😂

  11. I heard about that Scott Foley stab in the commentary. 🙁 My poor baby.
    And I'm really glad they kept that line in for the first "Scream" where Stu says: "Fuckin hit me with phone, dick!" LOL It's one of the best lines! I didn't know it was unscripted though, that makes it even funnier! XD

  12. OMG the Anthony Hopkins one literally had me laughing out loud if it is even possible I love him more witch is crazy because his role in silence of the lambs scared me till I was like 18

  13. I’m surprised Jared padalecki didn’t do anything to make it into this video in house of wax. I mean if you watch supernatural Jared is usually the cause of most of the bloopers along with misha and Jensen

  14. also in scream, when Sidney pokes the bullet hole in Billy's chest, the pain on Skeet Ulrich's face is real due to a medical condition.

  15. um excuse me our lord and savior Jared Padalecki is not only in Gilmore Girls but he is also in SUPERNATURAL get it right

  16. The Witch was haunting alright. Hauntingly boring. They should’ve kept the horse peeing scene in the final version of the movie. At least it would’ve been a genuinely entertaining scene in an otherwise dull snoozefest.

  17. 5:29 my dad used to use that same mast to clean our cat’s litter box 🤣 we still have it but we don’t use it for cat litter 🤣 I was 6

  18. Guys…c'mon. First off, it's JOSS Whedon, not Josh and second, while he was a producer and writer, Drew Goddard directed and co-wrote. Can we really call that "Whedon's film"?

  19. Does anyone else just really miss Wes Craven? Also that was Heather Langencamp describing the blood gushing from the bed in nightmare on elm street, not talking about the merman scene in Cabin in the Woods . Love that movie though

  20. You have the gall to show the same commercial – one that cannot be skipped – at least twice in the same video? Shame on you. I stopped watching the video and gave it a thumbs down as soon as that ad repeated itself. I hate that ad!
