  1. I was Dale Midkiff’s stand-in for the film. While Miko was happy as a clam for most of the shooting, no one adequately prepared him for the biting Jud’s neck scene. Fred had to quickly wipe away the blood and show a hysterical Miko that he was OK.

    1. Thank you so much for the comments, Raymond! Your points are well taken. Your perspective adds some intrigue to my mind as to “what could have been” with that movie. Wish there was a way to see the director’s cut for sure. Yes, Patrick and I being parents gave us a different take on Miko as a human being. Thankful Fred was so quick to try to help him in that time of crisis. I’m sure the new version will take a different approach to kid actors – or not. 😉 Please feel free to fill anymore blanks we may have for this and/or other films you were part of. Thanks again for listening. We appreciate you. 🙂

  2. What was cut was a montage of happy family times and life before the trauma, longer treks to the burial ground, a longer exhumation of Cage, longer Rachel stuck at airport etc.

    The neck injection was on a puppet.

  3. Paramount wanted more gore after the first cut, so Timmy Baterman digging at the ground and Rachel’s far gorier facial appliances were done in reshoots in LA.
