Urban legends in movies.
Posted 29 July 2004 - 09:39 AM
For example, in the last 70's there was a movie made called Hell's Gates, which when played at the theatre, would make many people in the audience physically ill. No one figured out why until the spliced the movie and found tons of subliminal images of dead bodies, abortion clinic procedures and meat processing plants hidden in the scenes.
Another popular one is the ghost in Three Men and a Baby. That one was later diagnosed a hoax, after the ghost reflection turned out to be a Ted Danson cardboard cutout.
The hanging body in Wizard of Oz has yet to be proven or disproven, and if you've ever played Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" album with Wizard of Oz, you'll really be freaked out. The songs run almost in perfect sync with scenes from the movie.
And the creepiest one ever would have to be the curse that Antone Levay layed on actress Jane Mansfield after her manager insisted that she leave his Church of Satan. They were killed in a terrible car wreck after leaving his church.
The one legend I've yet to be able to confirm is the Poltergeist story. Along with the fact that so many of the cast members died or became ill while filming, there is also supposed to be a scence in the movie where a child is seen peering through a window. This child was not an actor in the film or part of the stage crew. No one yet can confirm that legend.

I wasn't aware of the hanging body in Wizard..I'll have to look into that one.
I've heard the Jane Mansfield one, however, that one stikes me as only a legend.
I'll have to look into the child in the window in Poltergeist. That sounds a tad creepy!
And I've not heard of the Hells Gate one either. Man...this is interesting....

It tuns out it is an exotic bird that they borrowed to make the set look more exotic!
