Dana/Zuul: I want you inside me.

Peter: [laughs] Go ahead. No, I can't. Sounds like you got at least two people in there already. Might be a little crowded.

  • During the shot of possessed Dana levitating, Sigourney Weaver was placed in a fiberglass body shell concealed beneath her flowing gown. It wasn't discovered until later in dailies, but the shadow of the motorized support bar was seen moving up and down the wall. The shot was redone with a new lighting scheme. [1]

Paragraph reads: "Members of Chuck Gaspar's physical effects team make adjustments to the levitation rig employed to lift Dana off the bed and roll her over in midair. During the shot, Sigourney Weaver was placed in a fiberglass body shell concealed beneath her flowing gown. Attached at the waist was a motorized support bar which extended out through a hidden slot in the rear wall. The effect worked well on the first take -- in fact, not until later in dailies did anyone notice that the support bar shadow could be seen moving up and down the wall. As a result, the shot had to be reaccomplished with a different lighting scheme."
