Horror movies do get a lot of appreciation from the viewers and that’s the reason why more and more scary films are hitting the cinemas, every year. The elements of thrill and fear excite a large number of audiences around the globe. Although a lot of these horror movies are regarded as fan favorites, some of them have extremely terrifying histories and some of them are discussed below.

Twilight Zone

This movie involves Bill Connor, a person who travels back in time to the most discriminatory periods in history. He wants to alter history for the better and he saves two Vietnamese children from American troops. Ultimately, instead of saving lives, this led to a loss of more lives. In the scene where Connor and the children take a helicopter to safety, many explosions can be seen in the surroundings. Due to these explosions, the helicopter actually crashed during the filming and both child actors and Morrow were killed.

The Exorcism of Emily Rose

The Exorcism of Emily Rose - Horror Movies

Directed by Scott Derrickson, The Exorcism of Emily Rose (2005) stars Dexter actress Jennifer Carpenter and follows the story of Emily Rose’s tragic death. Attorney Ethan Thomas (played by Campbell Scott) argues that Emily was plagued by schizophrenia, not demonic possession and that the church’s unprofessional conduct ultimately resulted in her death. Alternatively, the defense lawyer (played by Laura Linney) argues that science cannot explain Emily’s condition. While no deaths or outrageously dangerous feats occurred on set, actress Jennifer Carpenter told sources that every night her radio would randomly turn on, playing “Alive” by Pearl Jam.


Annabelle - Horror Movies

The creepy doll from The Conjuring ended up having a whole movie about itself. This movie takes place during the 1960s and follows Annabelle as she enters a new home with expectant parents, as well as all that ensues after. Just like other horror movies in the list, Annabelle had its own set of spine-tingling mishaps on set. The first day that the actor playing the demon was given full makeup, there was an on-site injury. The “demon” walked down a hallway, and a light fixture fell, severely injuring an actor who was playing a janitor. Coincidentally, the demon kills the janitor in the hallway during the movie.

The Conjuring

A number of vague incidents took place on the sets of the film that still remain unexplained. One day, a strong wind came up and seemed to swirl around the Perron family but the crew members noticed that the trees opposite to them weren’t moving. The hotel where all the crew members and the actors were staying caught fire and everyone had to be evacuated. Similarly, the movie director felt something strange one night when he was working late in his office.

The Exorcist

The list of mishaps in this horror movie is also quite long. The most terrifying among them is the fact that Jack MacGowran, the actor of this film, died unexpectedly a few days after finishing his scenes. Similarly, a security guard and an FX worker also died on the sets of this film. The entire set of the film burnt down and it had to be rebuilt for sake of completing the movie. The director of this film brought a priest to the set to bless the area but that didn’t seem to work as a number of viewers suffered from a cardiac arrest and died on the spot.

The Omen

The Omen

The Omen makes this terrifying list for a number of reasons. First of all, the lead actor was informed about the suicide of his son during the shooting of this horror movie. In addition to that, the scriptwriter almost died in an airplane crash when it was hit by lightning. Having said that, several crew members lost their lives in a plane crash, which occurred later. The most disturbing event from The Omen is when SFX director John Richardson and his assistant Liz Moore got into a serious car crash. This crash took place on 13th June 1976 and Moore was cut in half in the accident, mirroring the decapitation shown in the very movie they were shooting.
