As many of us know, there are times where general mishaps happen on set while filming a movie. What most of us don't know is that there are some films that have earned the title of being cursed. Films such as PoltergeistThe Omen, The Exorcist, and even The Wizard of Oz have all fallen prey to some type of curse. These are the films that are riddled with bad luck, both during the making of the film and after the film's production. Films where mysterious accidents, multiple mishaps, and uncanny coincidences all add up to one thing, a curse. So here's the story of ten movies that are widely thought to be cursed. Movies that might have scared us to our very core, and movies that might have meant death and destruction for some involved. Even if you don't believe in curses, the number of mysterious happenings involved in all of these films is uncanny. It might even be enough to make you believe in curses after all.

10 The Wizard of Oz (1939)

9 The Conqueror (1956)

8 The Crow (1994)

7 Atuk (Unreleased)

6 The Superman Curse

5 Rebel Without a Cause (1955)

4 Rosemary's Baby (1968)

3 The Poltergeist Curse (1982, 1986, 1988)

2 Exorcist (1973)

1 The Omen (1976)

When it comes to cursed films, The Omen takes the cake. Just some of the strange incidents that happened on and around the set included plane crashes, IRA bombings, and car crashes. During filming, Gregory Peck's (actor) , Mace Neufelds' (Executive Producer), and David Seltzer's (Scriptwriter) planes were all struck by lightening. Two IRA bombings occurred. One being at a hotel that Neufeld was staying at during production and another being at a restaurant that the directors and actors were scheduled to eat at. Luckily no one was killed at either of these bombings, but others weren't so lucky. On Friday the 13th, 1976, John Richardson, the special effects consultant and his assistant were involved in a car crash. Richardson lived but his assistant was sliced through the front by the car's wheel. Apparently when Richardson was getting out of the wrecked car he saw a road sign that read, Ommen 66.6km. If that isn't creepy enough, Gregory Peck's son shot himself, and a plane that was supposed to be used for the film, crashed killing everyone on board. The Omen curse should serve as a warning to anyone wanting to make a movie about Satan.
