I've watched this and it's absolutely crazy. Why anyone accepted to work on this is beyond me.
They tell stories about this when you visit the Shambala animal preserve, north of Los Angeles - it's run by Tippi Hedren, who produced Roar. The scalpings occurred as big cats - when they like you - will gnaw on the back of your head, and if you can't get out of the way, your scalp gets removed. The cats aren't even being mean, just doin' cat things.
Yet it only has a 6.3 on IMDB. If they went through all that I don't even care whether it's good or not
Tippi Hedren and her husband also kept a 400 pound pet lion named Neil in their house from the time it was a cub. It even slept in the bed with their daughter Melanie Griffith, and played in the pool with them. Not gonna lie, the pics of the lion laying in bed with it's tail sticking out from under the blanket kinda look adorable.... but as Tippi admitted later on, *incredibly* stupid. It was partially because Neil was so gentle with them and basically a member of the family that they decided to make Roar.
Hedren and Marshall divorced one year after the film was released...hmm wonder why.
Am I the only one who came here curious to find out the situation surrounding the “scalping”?
I've had cats all my life and honestly, as cute and gentle as they can be, they can be absolute assholes - all of them. I really wouldn't want to rub a lion's belly just to experience the "bear trap" next or a sudden pounce from your arm. My most adorable, cute and gentle cat used to sit on my neck and eventually he would bite me while purring...
For anyone who doesn't know what gangrene is, it's best you not look it up. Threw up in my mouth a little.
Might want to keep an eye on this thread
