Dafoe's blood drained on Hunter set
Willem Dafoe stars in new psychological drama The Hunter
Willem Dafoe has revealed he and the cast of The Hunter suffered attacks from plagues of leeches on set.
The Spider-Man star filmed the psychological drama, about a man sent on a mission to hunt the legendary last Tasmanian Tiger, on location in the wilderness of Tasmania and admitted it was not easy.
Willem said: "You haven't lived until you've counted how many leeches you get on you in one day. I stopped at a count of about fifty - big old leeches, everywhere. You usually feel them when they're travelling and you usually can pick them off before they find a good spot to suck."
But one crew member was not so lucky.
Willem revealed: "One guy got in his car to go home and he thought he peed his pants, but in fact he pulled his pants down and there was a leech on his genitals and a pool of blood. It was quite a memorable event!"
And the Platoon star was also battling the elements out in the wilderness.
He explained: "It was quite rugged where we were shooting. It's rough terrain. And very changeable, very dramatic weather.
"We filmed on top of a mountain. Early in the day it was sunny and beautiful and then some weather came in and three hours later in turned into blizzard conditions."
::The Hunter is released in cinemas on Friday.
