Film sets are nothing like you’d expect them to be. While you think it’s all actors performing and directors yelling “action” and “cut,” the reality is far more mundane and unsettling. There’s a lot of people, a lot of standing around, and a legitimate shit-ton of yelling and ego vs. ego. Toss in the element that it’s a horror film you’re working on, and things go a little off the rails.
While most scary movies can get off without a hitch, these ones definitely didn’t. Given a choice between human evil or supernatural evil, I’d take the ghosts.
Less death and mental anguish that way.
