Se7en’s Disturbing, Memorable Ending Nearly Never Happened

If you’ve ever seen Se7en — or really, even if you haven’t — you’ve probably never been able to hear someone ask what’s in a box without flinching.

In the latest episode of our “Behind the Movies,” we take a close look at the ending of David Fincher’s Se7en.

Produced by Eva Hill and Kenny Wassus. Script by Kevin Lincoln.
