True or False Trivia: Conan the Barbarian

One of the fascinating pieces of trivia below is true*, the other is false. Do YOU know which is which?

Conan the Barbarian (1982)

1) The fake blood used in the film came in the form of a concentrate, which had to be mixed with water prior to use. Due to the cold weather, it was mixed with vodka (as an anti-freeze) instead. In the scenes in which the actors were supposed to spit the blood, they would swallow it instead, then go back to the special effects man for more.

2) The giant snake killed by Conan was not a puppet, but a real, live snake that was considered to be the largest in the world at the time. The script didn’t call for Conan to kill it, simply for him and Subotai to escape the room, but while filming the scene Schwarzenegger went into a frenzy, killed the snake, and ate it so he could “absorb its power into my own.” A similar event happened on the set of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, when Schwarzenegger killed and ate actor Robert Patrick.
