The Omen (1976) is yet another Hollywood film that rumors of being cursed revolves around. Considering the nature of the movie, this doesn’t even seem hard to believe.
The ‘omens’ themselves, so to speak, are both numerous and pretty crazy. First, the airplanes that the star and two producers flew in (all separate planes) were each struck by lightning, which is, biblically speaking, a bad omen in itself. Also, the plane they got to take aerial shots of for the movie was switched out at the last minute. Their shots were a success, but the other plane, which flew another party, crashed upon takeoff, killing everyone.
The animal handler for the film was attacked and eaten by his lions; a restaurant the producer and star had reservations at was bombed, as well as their hotel. Special effects artist John Richardson, who was responsible for the numerous death scenes, was in a car accident two months after filming - his companion, Liz Moore, was decapitated in front of his eyes, reminiscent of a decapitation scene he designed for The Omen. He also claimed a road sign near the accident stated their location was 66.6 kilometers away from the town of Ommen, Netherlands.
