10 Unexplained Paranormal Events That Changed History
9. The Poltergeist Curse Claims Everyone's Lives
In most time travel fantasies that involve changing history, the catalyst for a butterfly effect throughout history is more often than not somebody dying. You kill Hitler, or you stop Abe Lincoln from dying, or something and history changes. When somebody dies, you're removing a person's decisions, interactions and all from the world.
Which is why the Poltergeist Curse has had such an ineffable effect on history. For most, the Poltergeist Curse is simply that people keep making unnecessary sequels and now a remake of Tobe Hooper's classic haunted house movie; or else it's being damned to hear your know-it-all friend endlessly tell you about how Steven Spielberg really directed it.
Spielberg is definitely responsible for the untimely deaths of dozens of people involved with the films. He okayed the use of real human skeletons not props in the first movie, and since then an unexplained cursed has claimed the lives of most of the main cast in violent and tragic circumstances, and even the novelization writer was killed in a car crash.
