Tantalizing Trivia: Alive

During filming of Alive (1993) the actors ate turkey jerky to simulate the eating of human flesh.

The actors apparently fasted for days before shooting those scenes so they could feel the desperation the real survivors must have felt.

Bet you won't look at jerky the same way again...

Skip to 6:20 for the cannibalism.
