Many of us know that there have been unexplained events occur on particular film sets. Movies such as, 'The Exorcist', 'Poltergeist', 'The Omen', 'The Amityville Horror' are all examples. If you know of these stories, you know that all of the events occur during, or after production of the films. For me, I think it would be interesting to see these stories expanded and sent to the silver screen.

First of all, we have the film, 'The Exorcist'. Many unfortunate deaths were associated with the films release and production. Facts are from various websites. But first, we have Jack MacGowran who played the character of Burke Dennings. The actor passed away at the age of 55 of Influenza. His character is also killed in the film. Next, Jason Miller, who played Father Karras reportedly had a strange occurrence with another priest. Miller, who would often practice his lines in a restaurant near Jesuit Quarters was approached by a priest one day and was given a medallion of the Blessed Virgin. This medallion would protect him and the priest told him to be careful. Jason then passed away from a heart attack just living long enough to appear 'The Exorcist III'. A fire occurred and the first set of the MacNeil home was burnt down. The cause of the fire is unexplained and another set had to be rebuilt. The list goes on and on.

You all know the film 'Poltergeist'. This is one of the most famous cursed sets. The child actor, Heather Rourke passed away before the third film was released of the flu. Julian Beck, the old man in the two last films died of cancer. Louis Perryman was stabbed in his home. One of the weirdest things is that the film directors used actual human remains for the props in the film. This list also goes on and on.

It might just be me, but I think that these stories would make great films. I think it would be interesting to see a film based on these films productions and the horrors and mysteries that occurred. There are many different rumors on what happened and people believe different things but I would definitely like to see these theories in a film.


Would you like to see a film based on these 'haunted set' theories?
