The Ten Most Insanely Cursed Movie Productions

Things go wrong on every movie set, because feature film production is incredibly complicated. Still, some movies stand heads and shoulders above the rest in bad luck. One movie lost four prospective leading men to death -and was never made. Horror films are more likely have spooky things going on, but could that be because everyone’s scared anyway? And then there The Passion of the Christ.

They say lightning doesn’t strike twice, but apparently it does three times. First, it struck an umbrella that AD Jan Michelini was holding, singing his fingers. Then, while lead actor Jim Caviezel (who was also hit with near-hypothermia and a separated shoulder) was giving the Sermon on the Mount, he was struck. Not five minutes later Michelini went over to see if Caviezel was ok (since they were lightning bros now) and Michelini was stuck AGAIN.

That’s just one of ten stories of cursed movie productions you’ll find at The Chive.

regards to lightning strikes, it is a strange thing that being struck by lightning actually does predispose you to future lightning strikes, ie people who've been struck by lightning are statistically more likely to get struck by lightning again then someone who has never been struck.

it's probably just that some people are more likely to get struck in general and we see this as an increase in strikerate, but it's a little strange, some people are struck many times over the course of their life... and also interesting is that most lightning strikes against people are not fatal.. Many don't leave any real injuries at all.
