8. The curse of the crying boy

The portrait of an unknown boy was believed to be the cause of many explosions and fires throughout the world. The painting was every time found intact at the place of the explosion. A reputed researcher, Doctor George Mallory was intrigued by these facts and started to search the author of the paintings. He finally discovered an old painter from Madrid, who claimed that he had made that painting many years ago, when finding a little, sad orphan wandering on the streets. Apparently, he had been the only survivor of an explosion which killed both his parents. The painter also said that he was warned by a priest who knew the boy, that he had been the cause of many fires, in all the houses that opened their doors for him. The old painter did not want to believe it and took care of little Don Bonillo (the priest knew the name of the child) until his own studio burst into fire. Afterwards, the painter banished the poor boy, who was never seen again.

9. The Poltergeist curse

The Poltergeist is a horror movie from 1982. Apparently, the extremely violent nature of the movie, as well as the plot enhanced the mystery surrounding it. However, the facts cannot be denied: four of the cast members died in the time between the release of the first and of the third movies. This curse is believed to have been caused by the use of real cadavers when filming several scenes. An American documentary series called “E! True Hollywood story”, had an episode dedicated to the Curse of Poltergeist, in 2002.

10. The Kennedy curse

When having a large, notorious family, it is probably normal that all sorts of accidents and tragedies might strike its members. However, the strangely large list of deaths and other disasters that faced the Kennedys even made one of the family members (Ted Kennedy, after the car accident that killed his passenger, Mary Jo Kopechne) declare that an awful curse may indeed “hang over all the Kennedys”. Like most of the curses, it all started with an injustice: Joseph P. Kennedy Senior had her daughter unjustly lobotomized, when she was only 23 years old. Rosemary Kennedy(the one standing) appeared retarded- at least in the eyes of a family with an average IQ of 130- and she had “violent mood swings”, probably a teenager’s reaction to feeling inferior and isolated. Thus, her father decided to try “to treat her” by means of a lobotomy, which left her incapacitated for the rest of her life. Afterwards, the death of Joseph P. Kennedy Jr. during the World War II, the assassination of John and Robert Kennedy, the plane crush and the car accident of Ted Kennedy, as well as the deaths of many other members of the family became subject to rumors.
