Just in time for Halloween, Presto has released an infographic discussing the four scariest horror movies and how they affected the cast, film crew, film set and audience. There’s been hundreds of horror movies released, but only a few stand out as being truly terrifying. Interestingly enough, they were all released over 10 years ago. Let’s take a look at what happened.
In Poltergeist’s 1982 movie, four cast members actually died between the three films. A Native American shaman actually came to “rid the evil” from the set. Apparently, it was revealed in 2002 that real skeletons were used as props in the film.
In the Exorcist of 1973, filmmakers were so scared that they decided to bring their own friar to bless the premises. Up to nine crew members suffered untimely deaths during filming or shortly afterwards. There were multiple cases of injuries on set and the entire set even burned down in strange circumstances, delaying the filming for a few weeks.
Rosemary’s Baby of 1968 brought about death and illness in a very public way. The pregnant wife of the films director, Robert Polanski, was murdered by the Manson Family in 1969. John Lennon was also shot and killed right outside the apartment where the filming took place.
There’s one more scary one to see in the infographic below.
