Margo’s loss of life is downright surprising as a result of the movie makes you suppose she’s not going to outlive being run over by a truck. When she miraculously lives, it is virtually as if Corey is compelled to double down on the violence as punishment for making him go after her once more. “Margo is on this second of terror proper earlier than the truck rolls over her and crushes her,” Van Dyke defined. As a way to make the pretend head for Corey to crush in, they took head and physique scans of Joey Harris with a terrified expression.
“We wished this to be posed in an unnatural means, and have Chris be capable to contort the physique,” mentioned Nelson, who additionally confirmed that there have been a number of pretend Margo heads. Every head was hollowed out, and Nelson would load them up with blood, bananas, tofu, and rice muffins. The entire varied textures combined with the blood looked like mind matter. “It was scored and rigged in order that when the top crushes open, all that blood and brains come squishing out,” mentioned Nelson.
