William Friedkin states the infamous curse surrounding The Exorcist is crap!


For years rumours have surrounded many films and their supposed cursed sets and website http://www.joblo.com published an article on it, including the films below.

The Poltergeist production had its issues, including a series of deaths including its young star Heather O’Rourke. It has been speculated that real human remains were used during production, but has never been confirmed.

The Omen’s special effects advisors girlfriend was decapitated during a car crash they both had. The most bizarre part of this was that it was just like a scene in the movie, it happened on Friday the 13th close to a road sign that read Ommen 66.6km.

The article also featured The Exorcist and stated

“Before audiences began vomiting and blacking out during screenings of William Friedkin’s film, the production itself was beset by numerous bizarre occurrences. From the death of a nightwatchman and a special effects worker to film crew suffering from dysentery and sunstroke, everything that could have gone wrong did on the set of the film. Ellen Burstyn injured her back and was bedridden, actor Jack McGowran died suddenly a week after wrapping the film, and the set burned down at one point and the film [was set] back six weeks. Eventually, Friedkin had an actual exorcism performed on the production, and once that happened, no further disturbances were recorded. Now that is a curse.”

Exorcist director William Friedkin stumbled across the article and responded on Twitter by tweeting “This is simply a load of crap”
