"The Expendables 2" (2012) - the death of a stuntman
The incident occurred on the reservoir Ognyanovo, 15 miles from the capital Sofia. There is a scene where the explosion should have occurred in an inflatable boat with two characters. The Explosion was arranged by specially hired pyrotechnics, but the system had failed, which led to the disaster.

Jack McGauran died soon after he played a role. He had a heart attack. Generally, the process of shooting the film was accompanied by mystical events.
The crew of the movie "Exorcist" even invited a real exorcist to exorcise the demons.

Will Sampson, who played a medic, a year after the shooting the movie has died of kidney failure. He was 53 years old.

"Superman" (1951 onwards) - damn movie
Other mystical events take place behind the scenes of this movie. It is believed that after the filming of the movie "Superman" the actor necessarily overtakes disaster. In 1950, George Reeves played Superman. In 1959, he was found murdered with a firearm eight days before his wedding. Christopher Reeve in 1995 fell from his horse and was paralyzed.

"The Twilight Zone" (1983) - Vic Morrow died
It is one more movie that was accompanied with mystical events and an awful tragedy behind the scenes. The most terrible tragedy that happened on the set is the death of Vic Morrow. The film "The Twilight Zone" consists of small mystical stories. Actor Vic Morrow in one scene runs through the shallow lake. In his hands he holds two children (a girl - Mick Dean Lee, who was 7 years old and a boy - Rene Chen, who was 6 years old). In the background, explosions thundered, helicopter circled over the lake. The tragedy had happened due to the helicopter.
The explosion of pyrotechnics has damaged tail rotor. The pilot tried to keep the helicopter in the air, but he did not succeed, and he began to fall directly into the lake. Screw blades of the helicopter struck the actors. Girl Dean Lee and actor Vic Morrow were beheaded. The boy also died on the spot from a terrible blow.
Terrible tragedies occur every day. And life is not a fairy tale and not a movie or TV series in which most of the heroes expect a happy ending. However, not all the films end up the same way, even shooting the film may bring to death or terrible disease. The terrible, tragic events accompany many films, and often behind the scenes live the mystic.
