John Travolta Is Actually Pulling the Needle Out of Uma Thurman’s Chest. The grizzly scene in Pulp Fiction where Travolta jams a needle into Uma Thurman’s chest to try to revive her from her overdose was actually filmed backwards.

The anthology series is being made for mobile short-form movie/TV app Quibi, which has been hoovering up talent at a rate to rival the likes of Disney+ and Amazon. 50 States Of Fright will tackle urban legends from across the US – Raimi (and brother Ivan) have co-written The Golden Arm, which will also star Travis Fimmel and John Marshall Jones and adapts a legend from Michigan.

Christina Ricci , Spider-Man: Homecoming 's Jacob Batalon , Ming-Na Wen , Taissa Farmiga , Asa Butterfield and Ron Livingston are all aboard to star in episodes of the series, which will be parceled out in short chunks by the app due to launch next year.
