The Incomparable Atuk Cover
Atuk is a film adaptation of the novel in 1963, The Incomparable Atuk written by Mordecai Richler. The picture on the side is a picture of the novel. Why not a film image displayed? yes, because the film itself only to the production stage and was never released because of misfortunes that befall the characters. Atuk itself is a comedy movie about a hunter from the Eskimos who came to New York. 
The first victim of the curse of this movie is John Belushi, who after reading the film script is very interested and enthusiastic to play a leading role in the film, but soon thereafter died of an overdose.

3. Rosemary's Baby 
 Rosemary\'s Baby Poster
Rosemary's Baby is a film directed by Roman Polanski in 1968 is a horror / thriller that tells the story of a woman from Manhattan who married a member of the cult of Satanists. 
This film composer died of a brain malfunction, by chance one of the characters are told in the film died of the same thing. This film's producer, William Castle, kidney disease at the time of production of this film, but did not cause his death. He himself died in 1977 of a heart attack. 
But forget the stories, the main curse of this film is about luck as well as misfortune this filn director, Roman Polanski. In March 1969, Polanski buy a house for himself and his wife who was pregnant 8 months, Sharon Tate. Unfortunately, Polanski bought a house from the wrong people. 
The house that he bought, previously belonged to Terry Melcher, a music producer who had previously refused to record the music of Charles Manson. Hey ... who was Charles Manson? Did you mean Marilyn Manson? No, I'm not a typo. For those who do not know, Charles Manson is a criminal kingpin, heads a community or gang which he called "Manson Family". Manson is disappointed with the rejection of Terry Melcher, had "family member" to go to Melcher's house (which is now occupied by the family Polanski) and killed everyone who was there. Sharon Tate, the baby still in her womb, and 4 others died horribly in the event since being stabbed over and over and over with brutal. 
When the incident, Polanski was in London, therefore she survived the brutal incident. He continued his career as a director, to achieve success, even in 2004 won an Oscar through his film The Pianist. However, Polanski was accused of sexual harassment and rape of minors. Maybe he can blame the curse of the movie Rosemary's Baby, but the curse does not constitute rich material that is strong enough defense in the court = P 
Another coincidence, named Charles Manson brutally murder plan was "Helter Skelter" is taken from the title song of The Beatles. Several years passed after that incident, John Lennon died because of killed in front of the hotel called The Dakota. The hotel is also used in some scenes in the film Rosemary's Baby. 

2. The Conqueror

The Conqueror is a 1958 epic film produced by Howard Hughes with John Wayne as the stars, where the main character in this film is Gengis Khan (aka Temujin). What? Gengis Khan? yes yes ... ... you are not misreading this film tells the story of Gengis Khan, a la Wild Wild West. 
The film itself is less successful, losing money from the commercial side and sharp criticism from film critics (Regarded as one of the worst movies in the era of the 1950s). 
But the curse of the movie is not on its failure to achieve success, but through a series of events that constantly occur during the production of this film and continue until the completion of the film. 
Some events include sudden flood that nearly killed all the crew of the film. Then the main actress in this film, Susan Hayward, was attacked by a Black Panther. Fortunately she did not die in the panther attack. 
Location filming is located in the Nevada desert, St. George, Utah. It was claimed that when shooting for the film, all cast and crew should sunbathe ria for 13 weeks on the air temperature 50 degrees Celsius. That's enough? Not yet .... Taukah you if the location shooting for this film is about 137 miles from the area named by the U.S. Government as the Nevada Test Site, Operation Upshot-Knothole? 
What was that place? That place is a place of intensive nuclear testing by the United States. Of course, the crew and the actors know about the place, but do not worry about susceptibility to blast (137 miles is almost equivalent to 220km, a distance). They also know that they will be exposed to nuclear radiation. Even a picture of John Wayne who was holding the radioactive level gauges. What they (and people in the 1950s) did not know is that radioactive waste is one of the main causes of cancer. 
The result? A few years later 91 of the 220 film crew suffering from cancer, 46 of them died, including the actor John Wayne, Susan Hayward and directed the film. One of the other actor, Pedro Armendariz, died due to suicide when he learned that the disease has reached end-stage cancer. 

1. The Omen (1976)

Why was there in 1976 in the title above? That's because the film The Omen is meant (cursed) is the film The Omen was released in 1976. The film with a similar title was also released on June 6, 2006 (06-06-06) which is a remake of this film. 
So what's the curse that afflicts this movie? Eng ing eng ... this is it ... =) 
At the time of filming, the aircraft is boarded by screenwriter David Seltzer, Producer Mace Neufeld, and this film stars Gregory Peck, struck by lightning. Oh .. I've told you what if all three using three different aircraft? Fortunately, the third such incident there were no casualties. 
After the thunderstorm, what else is happening? This time the answer is the bomb ... 
Neufeld Hotel residence during the production process is affected by bomb attacks from the left wing extremists Ireland, the IRA. A similar bomb attack occurred in a restaurant that is scheduled as a place to eat for the director and crew of the film-crew. Again and again they are still lucky because no one died in the incident. 
On the other hand, there are also some people who are not lucky. Among these was an assistant of John Richardson who is a consultant this movie special effects. On the day Friday, August 13, 1976, Richardson had a car accident in the Netherlands. His assistant died in the accident, while Richardson, after great difficulty managed to get out of the ruins of his car only to see road signs that read "Ommen, 66.6Km". 
In addition, an animal handler who worked at the safari park, where one of the shooting scene in the film, died from being attacked by a lion, a day after the film crew left the safari park. Son of Gregory Peck, shot himself. A plane will be used in the film is void is used because there is change in shooting schedule, then the plane was used as a commercial aircraft, which ended crashed and killed all its passengers.
