Bruce Campbell in Evil Dead
This tale may or may not have happened but it's too good to leave off of this list. Apparently, there's nothing that Evil Dead Director Sam Raimi won't do to get a shot. This even includes riding a motorcycle while holding a camera. I'm sure the footage looked awesome but Raimi running into his lead actor (Campbell) probably wasn't in the cards. It seems that this near miss truly was that. The word is that had Raimi and his motorcycle been positioned differently, Campbell's head would have been squashed like a melon. And that dear readers wouldn't have been "groovy" at all!
