A little thriller film titled ‘Them That Follow‘ hit theaters this past weekend. The movie had a limited release after scoring a decent 63% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
But most people aren’t talking about the actual film this Monday morning. Instead, they’re talking about a leaked clip from the set of the movie, which was filmed back in 2017.
In the clip, actress Alice Englert is preparing for a scene where she is supposed to act like she’s feeding a bird to a snake. But during the scene, the bird died in her hands, which obviously sparked an emotional reaction from Englert.
“Oh my god, this is so f****d. Is it dead?” she asks while crying. She then hands the bird off to its handler.
Production was stopped moments later. You have to imagine they let Englert take the rest of the day off after that. She seemed pretty distraught.
According to TMZ, nobody knows why the bird died. Producers insist it was not mishandled or mistreated.
We hired top animal wranglers and working professionals in the business … we take full responsibly and deeply regret this isolated incident. No one of the cast or crew did anything to affect this sad event.”
Just a thought, but maybe the bird was terrified by the f**king snakes in the cage. I know the humans know it’s just acting, but that bird was probably like, “Oh, f**k. They’re going to feed me to these snakes!”
