Since movies look into the future so often, they are bound to show some moments that come true every so often. When Star Trek predicts Bluetooth headsets or Total Recall predicts driverless cars, it's neat but we're not impressed. Are we? That may sound harsh, but compared to the predictions on this list, they are a bit underwhelming. Androids, space travel and technology, these are all really cool predictions, but they're not really the most exciting. There are cases, like the ones on this list, when a film predicts future events with such precision that it's a little eerie, even if we write it off as a coincidence immediately afterward. We shouldn’t do that though. It's not as magical.
This list isn’t about conspiracy theories. It's about bringing to light the best of the best, the predictions that were so close that they made us freak out a little. The bigger the event predicted, the crazier and more alarming it is. Even as coincidences, the odds that some of these predictions came true are so insane, it can be tough for people to accept them as random. No matter what, looking back on these movie scenes makes them so much more interesting, so much more than just a piece of trivia. These are the births of some of the craziest movie moments ever, the ones that send chills down your spine. These movies are the reasons why some people wear tinfoil hats and think the movie industry is in cahoots with the government or aliens. To what end, no one knows. Heck, I want to believe.
It doesn't matter how or why these movie predictions happen. Sometimes coincidences and the wonder of random occurrences is more than enough. These are such strange accidents that they have to be discussed. They force us to run outside and scream out loud, "What are the chances?" How could it be that these filmmakers were so accurately able to predict the future, what does it all mean? The table is set. Here are 15 movie scenes that eerily predicted the future.

1 Poltergeist – Heather O'Rourke's Death
This is one of those movie moments that is just really, really strange. Remember Heather O'Rourke? She played the little girl Carol Anne in Poltergeist? Sadly, this little sweetheart died tragically at the age of 12 from septic shock. Here's the creepy part. In the movie, we can see quite clearly that Carol Anne's brother, Robbie, has a hand-drawn poster of 1988 Super Bowl XXII hanging on the wall over his bed. This by itself is a bit weird because the movie was released and takes place in 1982. That game was eventually played in San Diego on January 31, 1988. On that same day, in San Diego, Heather O'Rourke became seriously ill. The next morning, she collapsed and was airlifted to hospital where she died. Some have connected this death to the Poltergeist curse, whereas others just say it’s a coincidence. No matter what, it is weird, creepy and quite sad.
