Jennifer Carpenter in The Exorcism of Emily Rose (2005)

Jennifer Carpenter might’ve been fine with all the sinister surgical procedures going down on Dexter, but the actress got a case of the spooks during production on The Exorcism of Emily Rose. She told Dread Central that while she was filming the religious thriller, some strange things started happening to her after hours, like her radio randomly turning on in the middle of the night. “Two or three times when I was going to sleep my radio came on by itself,” she said. “The only time it scared me was once because it was really loud, and it was Pearl Jam’s ‘Alive.'”
