Reservoir Dogs Reunite (25 Years Later)

In 2017 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the release of Quentin Tarantino’s first movie, Reservoir Dogs (1992), the main cast (minus Chris Penn who tragically died in 2006) reunited at the Tribeca Film Festival for a screening of the movie. The screening was followed by a live panel where they shared their memories of making the cult hit heist thriller.

Tarantino said at the event that he travelled the world for a year, following his film to various film festivals and kept track of how many people walked out of the movie during the infamous torture scene. Apparently, 33 was the highest for one particular screening.

It was even too much for horror legend Wes Craven who walked out during the scene at a screening of the movie at Spain’s Sitges horror film festival. Tarantino found this ironic since Craven wrote and directed The Last House on the Left (1972) which was criticised for its use of brutal violence.

Wes’s reasons for leaving are unknown, but his sharp exit only helped get the movie more attention, which eventually led to Quentin Tarantino becoming one of the most popular and respected directors in cinema today.
