He also revealed the biggest money loser of his low-budget movie.
“We spent $50,000 between this lobster and an electric eel,” MGK said. “Because we were super meticulous. We needed their claws to move. We needed his mouth to move. We gave him sit-ups!”
MGK explained how some of the huge amount also went to the puppeteers who operated the lobster and eel during their 15-minute scene. However, when he tested the film, the audience’s reaction to the puppets was very disappointing.
“We thought it was a lot of fun,” explained MGK. “We said, ‘Oh, this section of lobsters is going to smash.’ And he did the opposite… The only note throughout the entire screening was like, ‘Great! I cracked up laughing. Why was there this lobster scene that was 15 minutes long? I hated it.'”
MGK ultimately cut the scene from the film. He also admitted that he has no idea what happened to the expensive puppets.
