This film was also based on real events that happened with the producer Alin Bijan and his crew on a horror movie set. First, they noticed an unknown man roaming on the set several times which then disappeared after sometimes. Several equipments were moved to a different place on its own and some of them even got a slap on their face with an invisible hand. Later paranormal investigators even confirmed that the set was indeed haunted. Alin Bijan decided to craft these incidents into a movie, and he even decided to use the same set to make it more realistic.During the shooting, the crew reported lights flickering and stuffs falling from the ceiling without any warning. They even heard their name called in an unknown voice by someone invisible.
5. The Exorcism of Emily Rose
During one interview, Jennifer Carpenter, who played the role of Emily Rose said she thought she had been followed by an unknown which scared her to hell. She said, “During the shooting, my stereo starts to play Pearl Jam’s ‘Alive’ in the midnight, which scared the hell out of me because it only played the line ‘I’m alive’.”
4. The Conjuring
(Sorry couldn’t get ‘The Conjuring’ free picture XP)
The Conjuring is based on real events happened with the Perron family once. One afternoon, during the shooting, everyone from the Perron family, except Carolyn Perron, visited the set of ‘The Conjuring’ in North Carolina. Carolyn Perron refused to visit the set to keep herself at a safe distance from the danger which once caused terror in their lives. But the luck was not on her side. When the Perrons set their foot on the set, a gust of wind started to encircle them. They thought it’s normal, but everyone else apart from them (The whole crew) noticed that the trees, at some distance from the Perron family, were unaffected. At the same time Carolyn Perron, who was at her home, felt an evil presence in her home and later was admitted to the hospital due to a severe fall.
After a few days of their visit, the hotel in which the whole crew was staying caught fire and everyone had to evacuate it.
Once the director, James Wan, was working in his office late night when suddenly his dog started to growl on something at a corner. James checked that corner carefully, but couldn’t find a thing there. But the dog didn’t stop growling.
Things didn’t stop there, actress Vera Farmiga used to feel uneasy during the shooting and she was also scared to read the script at home or at night. She even became more scared when one day she opened her laptop and saw five claw marks on her screen. She didn’t have any memory of any incident which could lead to these marks on the screen.
Coincidence? I guess not!
3. The Poltergeist
It is said that this movie is cursed from day one. Many believed that it is due to the fact that they used real skeletons as a prop instead of the artificial one which angered the soul of the dead and cursed everyone related to the crew. Several persons died during the shooting.
