The Walking Dead, The Crow, Twilight Zone: These Scary On-Set Deaths Still Haunt Hollywood

Hollywood used to be a pretty dangerous place to work. Sometimes, it still is.

Big-budget blockbusters rule at the box office, and your favorite TV show is awaiting a binge-watch at home. But for the people who make those TV shows and movies, sometimes there's a price to pay. And in rare cases, that can be the ultimate price. Stunts go wrong, corners can get cut and plain old human error can lead to a gory array of on-set accidents and deaths. In the early days of Hollywood, the tragedies were especially nasty. Take the 1925 production of Ben-Hurin Rome, which led to the deaths of at least one stuntman and several horses.
