1. The Omen
The Omen had so many issues during production that it’s hard to believe it ever got made at all! First, David Seltzer, a scriptwriter, was on a plane that got struck by lightning. Then, lead actor Gregory Peck’s son committed suicide just before they started filming. One of the crew’s animal handlers was mauled to death by a lion. And, the IRA bombed a hotel where members of the crew were staying.
As if all that wasn’t enough, John Richardson, a special effects consultant crashed his car… on Friday the 13th… right by a street sign that read Ommen, 66.6km. Woah!
