4. The Exorcist
In 1973, A few reports say that 9 members died on the set, different reports say it’s four, including the Jack MacGowran and Vasiliki Maliaros.

In January of 2015 the set, situated in Taiwan, was announced risky for recording because of frail structures in the building, so contractual workers were employed to settle the circumstance. Shockingly, in a matter of seconds, the roof of the structure collapsed on two of the workers; one was killed and the other seriously harmed.

That is not all, however, a portion of the team members got into an auto collision; and the inn where the motion picture’s chief, Richard Donner, was staying got besieged by IRA forces. Now that is a bad omen.
