Posted in Entertainment on Jan 17th, 2019
Sometimes we get so caught up in a movie that we forget it took hundreds or thousands of actual people a lot of time and effort to make. That all becomes a very harsh reality when we hear about accidents on set, where people were hurt or lost their lives while making films for us all to enjoy; many famous movies actually experienced these terrible tragedies without us ever knowing. We’ve found some horrifying movie set accidents, some of which you might not know about.
15. The Dark Knight
As if The Dark Knight didn’t have enough tragedy surrounding it, with the untimely death of Heath Ledger, it was also the scene of a tragic car crash that killed special effects cameraman Conway Wickliffe. During the test run of an action scene, a stunt driver lost control of his car and crashed into a key, killing Wickliffe and putting a very somber mood on set for the rest of the movie.
