12 Movie Sets Where People Were Killed Or Injured
Blues Brothers – 2000
Director John Landis seemed to have overlooked a few safety issues in his past films which eventually came back to haunt him, while working on the popular film Blues Brothers.
In 1997, the Labor Ministry started an investigation after a car rolled onto a stuntman and a set coordinator, injuring them both- one eventually had to have his leg amputated. Landis was again investigated by the Labor Ministry after another accident left a stuntman with severe head trauma.
These cases eventually led to a complaint filed by the Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists against the Blues Brothers 2000 film.
The Omen – 1976
Arguably one of the scariest movies you will ever watch, the spookiness may have spilled over during filming. Actor Gregory peck, who played the father of a child who turns out to be the Antichrist, along with screenwriter David Seltzer took separate flights to England, and both were struck by lightning.
But it get’s worse, the plane that the crew had originally chartered crashed, killing everyone on board. That’s not all, though, some of the crew members got into a car crash; and the hotel where the movie’s director, Richard Donner, was staying got bombed by IRA forces. Now that’s a bad omen.
