Gallery: 'THEY'RE HERE!' Horror movies with paranormal events reported on set (BANG Showbiz)
Lights, camera, apparition!
These films are part of the classic and popular horror genre, not only for the stories they tell, but also for the disturbing and scary events that took place while filming them. Find out some off-script paranormal events that occurred during the making of these Hollywood blockbusters!
The 2013 film ‘The Conjuring’ tells the story of two paranormal investigators, who try to save a family living in a haunted house. Actress Vera Farmiga, who played Lorraine Warren, revealed in an episode of ‘E! True Hollywood Story’, that some spooky events took place during the making of the horror flick. She said: "When I opened my computer…and there were these claw marks across. After we got back from North Carolina, where we filmed, the same claw marks appeared on my thigh."
The Exorcism of Emily Rose
Laura Linney, Tom Wilkinson and Jennifer Carpenter, among others, starred in the 2005 film revolving around a teenager who is chased by demon forces. Jennifer told Dread Central that during the filming, the radio of her hotel’s room began to randomly turn on. She said: "Two or three times when I was going to sleep my radio came on by itself. The only time it scared me was once because it was really loud, and it was Pearl Jam's 'Alive.'"
oscar-winning actress Shelley Duvall played Wendy Torrance, Jack’s (Jack Nicholson) wife in Stanley Kubrick’s classic ‘The Shining’. In David Hughes’s book ‘The Complete Kubrick’, Shelley described part of her experience during the makings of the 1980 film, which caused her a terrible mental state. She said: “From May until October I was really in and out of ill health because the stress of the role was so great. Stanley pushed me and prodded me further than I’ve ever been pushed before. It’s the most difficult role I’ve ever had to play”. She only appeared in a couple of projects afterwards.
Some people say that the 1973 horror film is cursed. And some eerie events that took place during and after the filming could easily confirm it. At some point in the filming, a fire tore through the set which shut down production for several weeks. What's more, when the film wrapped, actor Jack MacGowran - whose starred as the tragic Burke Dennings - also died, just months before the film premiered. He had been suffering from influenza and was 54 years old.
The 1968 horror 'Rosemary's Baby' left audiences and crew alike haunted., but also part of the crew. It told the story of a young woman who believes she is being groomed by her Satantic couple so they can use her baby in rituals. Following the film's release, producer William Castle received an anonymous letter that said he would “slowly rot during a long and painful illness.” Shortly after he got severely ill and underwent surgery for kidney issues. He passed away on May 31, 1977, at the age of 63.
The film about a nun that passed away in Romania did not only spook the audience, but also part of the film’s crew while filming. Including director Corin Hardy! In an interview with Cinema Blend he recalled how he saw two guys who initially thought were part of the crew. He said: “As I went into the room I see these two guys from the crew you know, probably sound department, just sort of sitting a little further back in the dark. And I said ‘hi’.” Then, according to him, a few minutes later the guys were not there anymore, but there was sort of impossible for them to enter or go out of the room easily or unnoticed.
Twilight Zone: The Movie
Vic Morrow starred in Steven Spielberg’s 1983 film ‘Twilight Zone: The Movie’ and passed away on the set of it. The spooky thing about the case is that the actor had ‘predicted’ his death one year before, as he took a $5 million life insurance policy, telling his friends that he had a bad feeling that something bad was going to happen to him in an upcoming project. Morrow passed away on July 23, 1982 at 53, after a helicopter he was supposed to use to escape during a scene, crashed on top of him, deca-pitating him.
‘Poltergeist’ is the cult horror from the 1980s that went on to spawn a slew of ghostly sequel.s Child star Heather O’Rourke played the central character of Carol in the film franchise about a family stalked by a group of ghosts and uttered the infamous catchphrase "They're heeere!" in the movies. She passed away at the age of 12 while finishing her work on the third installment just days after suffering flu-like symptoms that turned out to be stenosis of the intestine complicated by septic shock. Just as tragic was actress Dunne Dominique, who played Heather's older sister Dana in the movie series She died just one day after the premiere of 'Poltergeist III', when she was strangled by her boyfriend at the age of 22.
Storm's recent movie credits include last year's 'The Suicide Squad' and 2020's 'The Invisible Man'.
Hooked to hero: Ilias inspires Souths to Storm victory
Souths have continued their exceptional run of form, battering Melbourne 24-12, drawing level with the Storm on the ladder in the process. It’s hard to believe that, after Round 9, these two sides were eight positions, half the comp, apart. Now, they are split only by points differential. Melbourne have now lost four on the spin, their worst trot since 2015, and dropped out of the top four after this result. Souths, on the other hand, all but secured their spot in the finals.
Meanwhile, Storm previously said working with Oprah Winfrey was "amazing".
Storm starred in Ava DuVernay's Disney movie 'A Wrinkle in Time' alongside the likes of Oprah, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling, and said she was uplifted to have someone like the showbiz legend in her corner.
She said: "To work with Miss Oprah has been amazing and to have her in my corner, for her to inspire me and uplift me was amazing.
"But she actually told me, 'Don't waste energy on things you can't change in life, when you can be using that energy on something that is positive in your life'.
"So that is like my life motto."
Reid admitted it was the first time she had worked on a set with "so many women" and doesn't think she will have the "privilege" to work with another predominately female cast.
She said: "This was the first set I've been on with so many women.
"I felt like everybody was represented on that set -- it looked, like Miss Ava said, like the United Nations there.
"I hope that I'll get to experience that again and I hope that Hollywood can normalise that, but I'm just not sure if I will have the privilege to experience that on the next set I go onto, which is unfortunate, but it may be true."
‘He could’ve quite easily broken his jaw’: Repeat offender Asofa-Solomona strikes again as Storm sink Warriors .
Storm forward Nelson Asofa-Solomona is in the firing line yet again for another grubby act which could have caused serious damage to Warriors hooker Wayde Egan in Melbourne’s Friday night 24-12 win in Auckland. Asofa-Solomona, who was placed on report three times in the previous two games but evaded suspensions to receive fines under the new judiciary system, was placed on report but did not get marched even for a sin bin despite a blatant forearm to the head of Egan in the first half at Mt Smart Stadium. Fox League analyst Greg Alexander was bemused that the Storm prop escaped with only a penalty for the hit.
