Did You – 1

You may not have seen the 1992 iconic horror film, Candyman, but no doubt you’ve at least heard of the bee scene, where approximately 200,000 living bees were used.

In that scene, the bees coming out of Candyman’s mouth and chest are real, and apparently, Tony Todd was paid $1,000 for each sting he received! As the actor explains in an interview with The Guardian: “I negotiated a bonus of $1,000 for every sting during the bee scene. And I got stung 23 times. Everything that’s worth making has to involve some sort of pain. Once I realized it was an important part of who Candyman was, I embraced it. It was like putting on a beautiful coat.”
