When Brandon died, there was
8 days of filming left in the movie. To finish out the rest of
the movie, they used a live body double and some digital composing.
Dream Quest was the company who did the special effect for breaking
the mirror, Brandon did not break the mirror because the scene
was shot after his death. DreamQuest manged to make it look like
Brandon did it. The scene of him entering the loft was the stunt
double, on most of the shots that are behind brandon in the loft
are the body doubles.
Early in the film T-Bird and
the gang torch Arcade games, after that they were supposed to
victimize Alison and leave to die in the ensuring firebomb. Eric
follows the crow and arrives at the building just after it excepts,
the woman slowly fades in his hands, and he gets his first flashbacks.
The scene when T-Bird says smokes
and road beers at the corner store. Skank gets shot by two young
thugs after running outside from the store after seeing T-Bird
getting carjacked by Draven.
The biggest cut of all was the
Skull Cowboy scenes. He was also Eric's guide. He tells Eric
to follow the bird and not to work for the living. If he worked
for the living like he did for Darla, he bled, which explains
the tape on this wrists. The scene with Funboy getting the knife
in the bathroom and stabbing Draven was also cut, Eric bled because
he helped the living.
