Some incredibly weird things have happened behind the scenes of popular movies. From sudden deaths to unexplained events, some films are even believed to be cursed!
The movie 'Rust' is well on its way to infamy as one of the most tragic and ill-fated productions of all time. It started on October 21 when Alec Baldwin fired a faulty prop gun and accidentally killed the cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, as well as wounding the film's director Joel Souza. The devastating incident caused uproar around the world and calls for reform in the use of firearms on film sets.
The production of 'Rust' was shut down after the shooting and extra crew members were hired to dismantle the set on the New Mexico ranch. One of these crew members, a man called Jason Miller, was then bitten by a seriously venomous brown recluse spider. The bite life a gaping wound on his upper arm and the poison made him extremely ill. Doctors say he will need skin grafts and long-term rehabilitation. Miller's mother told reporters that amputation was even being considered.
That's a great deal of misfortune to befall the cast and crew in a matter of weeks, but they're not the first team to experience such bad luck. Click through to see other movies that some believe are cursed and draw your own conclusions.
