1. 'Three Men and a Baby'
The 1987 film Three Men and a Baby may be a light-hearted comedy, but apparently, there's a spooky legend associated with the film.
Legend has it
There's a ghost of a young boy that can be spotted in the background of a scene where Ted Danson and Celest Holm exit a room while holding the baby.
Check out the scene in question:
There's also a breakdown of where the supposed ghost is. As they walk out, you can definitely see what looks like a young boy in the background.
It looks like SOMETHING was definitely in the background
While it's pretty creepy, I'm sure there's a reasonable explanation. Maybe someone's kid walked onto the set without anyone noticing.
Or maybe the studio is HAUNTED.
Annabelle is based on events that paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren claim to have experienced. According to the director, the set of Annabelle was plagued with unexplainable and downright supernatural incidents.
Director John R. Leonetti shared a spooky story that while they were prepping the set, the crew spotted three fingers drawn through the dust in a window above the living room window, which is extra spooky once you know that the demon character in the film ALSO HAD THREE FINGERS.
What is it about horror flicks that seem to draw in spooky happenings?
Producer Peter Safran shared the other bone-chilling incident:
"The first day that the demon was shooting in full makeup, we brought the demon up in the elevator. He walks out and walks around to the green room to where we're holding the talent, and just as he walks under — a giant glass light fixture is being followed by the actor playing the handyman of the building — and all of a sudden the entire glass light fixture falls down on his head, the janitor's head. And in the script the demon kills the janitor in that hallway. It was totally freaky."
Nope, nope, nope. Thats two too many things.
3. 'Rosemary's Baby'
Rosemary's Baby is an iconic psychological horror film, and it is really scary. So, it doesn't really come as a huge surprise that the cast and crew reported some oddities from when the movie was being made.
However, outside the strange events on set, there were even worse things that occurred that go way beyond just a spooky coincidence. People connected to the film actually died, which lead many people to believe that the production was cursed.
The first lost soul was the film's composer, Krzysztof Komeda
Komeda suffered a tragic accident at a party that caused him to be in a coma for four months before his eventual death. His death after the coma was very similar to a death that occurred in the movie.
Following Komeda's death, producer William Castle, fell sick with worry from the constant hate mail he received and was suddenly stricken with severe kidney stones. Castle recovered, but just barely.
Later, director Roman Polanski's pregnant wife, Sharon Tate, and their unborn baby were infamously murdered by the Manson Family.
That is not only horrifying, but also tragic
4. 'American Murder: The Family Next Door'
Netflix's newest true-crime documentary American Murder: The Family Next Door is a horrifying look into the case of a mother and her two daughters disappearing. They were later found to be murdered by their husband and father Chris Watts.
After the documentary was released, viewers noticed what looked like a small child pacing back and forth in the kitchen while Chris Watts and family friend Nickole Atkinson looked through his presumed missing wife's phone.
Take a look for yourself
I don't know about you, but I definitely noticed SOMETHING.
MFW watching the background:
5. 'The Nun'
Another movie that's inspired by the findings of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, the 2018 film The Nun had some supernatural experiences as well. While filming in a castle in Romania, the director claims he saw two ghosts.
As if an old ass castle wasn't creepy enough
Director Corin Hardy said that while they were filming in a long dark hallway, he stepped into a dark room and noticed two men sitting in the back. At first, he blamed the darkness, thinking he couldn't recognize which crew members they were because he couldn't make them out well.
However, he turned around to take a look at the take that was just filmed, and when he turned back around, the two men were nowhere to be seen. He's convinced they were ghosts.
Nope, I woulda peaced out of there
6. 'The Exorcism of Emily Rose'
Why is it that the possession horror flicks are so bedeviled with supernatural events? Is it a marketing thing or a warning?
Actors from the film The Exorcism of Emily Rose have made claims about the set being haunted, or otherwise just supernaturally active. There were two rather obvious instances that made them think the production was haunted.
Strange things happened to more than one person.
Shortly after the film was released, actress Jennifer Carpenter shared in an interview that while filming the movie, her radio would randomly turn on by itself in the middle of the night. She wasn't the only one either.
Fellow actress Laura Linney had a similar experience, her television turning on by itself during filming.
Talk about creepy
7. 'The Conjuring'
The 2013 film The Conjuring was the first of the movies inspired by Ed and Lorraine Warren's paranormal investigations. It's said that the set was haunted while filming, and with the movie being about a family terrorized by a dark force, I'm sure the cast and crew were already feeling a little uneasy.
Director James Wan shared an incident that involved his dog while working on the script. "She would just be growling away and she would be just tracking whatever this thing is across my office, just looking at it, following it. She did this many, many nights in a row and it just freaked me out."
Actor Patrick Wilson told the Jakarta Post of an incident that he caught on video. As he was leaving the set one day, he saw curtains blowing "violently" with no sign of where the wind could be coming from. explaining that there was no open door or fan or anything else that could have caused it.
"It happened after I left one night, there was a video of giant curtains blowing pretty violently by themselves. There were no door open, no fan, no air conditioning. There was nothing. It was very strange. It’s like the wind came out of nowhere and was blowing very violently. That was very unexplained, I just have to say."
I bet the cast were like:
8. 'The Wizard of Oz'
Another not-a-horror-movie film that has its share of spooky legends is The Wizard of Oz. Although, arguably it is pretty scary at times.
It doesn't help make it any less scary knowing that tons of viewers have spotted a ghost in one scene in the 80-year-old film.
The scene in question happens fairly early on in the film
It's when Dorothy and her new friends, Scarecrow, Tin-Man, and the Cowardly Lion, skip down the yellow brick road. Many people who've watched it claim to see a shape of a man swinging back and forth as if hanging from a noose.
See if you can spot it!
Some have suggested that it was a "Munchkin" from the film who died by suicide.
That's a pretty dark theory
What do you think? Do any of these examples have any merit?
Are demons and ghosts terrorizing the cast and crew of movies that dare try to make entertainment about them? Is it a crazy marketing scheme for horror films to get more press and more people interested in watching?
I’m not sure, there were some pretty convincing pieces of evidence though. Let us know what you think in the comments section!
