Horror movies can be downright scary. But in some cases, the events that took place on horror movie sets were more terrifying than the fictional films they produced. In fact, many of the biggest and most successful horror movies of all-time had a number of truly strange and horrifying things happen during filming, or shortly afterwards. In several cases, these incidents involved someone dying. Whether the deadly events that have befallen horror movie sets were mere accidents, cruel twists of fate, or some sort of evil curse, remains up for debate. But there’s no disputing the facts of what took place in the following list of 10 terrifying things events that happened on horror movie sets. Read on, if you dare.
10. The Possession (2012)
The 2012 movie The Possession is an unconventional horror movie that involves Judaism, rabbis, and a cursed Dybbuk box that attaches itself to a young girl. Jeffrey Dean Morgan, one of the stars of the film, is no stranger to playing roles in paranormal movies and television shows. He has, after all, played the father on the TV series Supernatural. But what happened on the set of The Possession left Mr. Morgan feeling very uneasy.
Some of the weird things that happened included lights exploding for no apparent reason, as well as chilly breezes wafting through closed sets for no particular reason. But the scariest incident occurred when the storage facility (where all the props were being held) caught fire and burned to the ground. An investigation into the blaze confirmed that it could not be blamed on arson or an electrical fault. So what caused the fire? It was ruled “undetermined” by investigators. But it is worth noting that the Dybbuk box used in the movie was destroyed in the fire. The cast and crew later refused to allow the movie’s producers to replace the Dybbuk box for fear it was cursed.
