Making movies can be dangerous business. There are so many things that can go wrong on set, everything from cameras not working to well-timed stunts not going as planned. Throughout cinema history, some individuals who make films have been hurt, maimed and even killed. On today’s morbid episode of Slums of Film History we’ll be focusing on those films where someone met their unfortunate demise. We discuss whether or not these fatalities brought about change or if the show simply went on. Today we’re “Dead on Set.”
