James Cameron was a young, upcoming director, who was struck down with a fever. With it spiking to 102°F, Cameron was bedridden and on the verge of hallucinating. He had a nightmare in which he saw a metallic cyborg with a piercing red eye pull itself from fire. It was this vision that led to him completing the screenplay that would become The Terminator.
