There seem to be two kinds of people in this world — those who are genuinely frightened by horror movies, and those who dismiss them as nothing more than some predictable jump scares and plot devices. Either type of person can enjoy a horror film, just in different ways. But no matter how scary — or not scary — you deem a film to be, there’s no denying that the productions behind many of these movies are a little, well, cursed.
Now, we’re not saying that there was any real paranormal activity going on behind the scenes of The Exorcist or The Conjuring, but you’d be surprised to learn just how many bizarre and sometimes tragic incidents occurred while making these movies. Does it have anything to do with the fact that these films deal with occult-ish matters? Or is it merely a coincidence? Sure, accidents happen on movie sets from other genres, but there seems to be a trend with films that focus on the supernatural.
Typically, these on-set accidents can be attributed to more explainable causes — such as unsafe working conditions and pre-existing health complications. However, in the cases of these 10 movies, it almost seems like there’s some sort of curse at play. Sure, some might call it bad luck, but the filmmakers and actors involved believe there’s more to it than that.
