Filmmakers Anger Poltergeist while Shooting in Iceland

Filmmakers Daníel Bjarnason and Erlendur Sveinsson, who work on the mystery television series Óupplýst on Skjár Einn, experienced what they believe were supernatural events while shooting scenes for their show in an abandoned warehouse last month.

“I wasn’t certain whether I believed in ghosts before this, but now I am,” Daníel stated in an interview on the radio program Reykjavík síðdegis on Bylgjan, reports.

“We heard about this warehouse or barracks, which used to serve as a garage,” Daníel said, explaining that he and Erlendur had entered the warehouse to put up cameras so that they could film it from all angles, which took five or six minutes.

“Each of us held a camera and were planning to walk further inside,” he continued. At that point they heard strange sounds. “It sounded as if someone was banging the walls. Then things were thrown out of shelves on both sides of us, cans and boxes.”

“It was very odd. It was as if someone was telling us not to go any further,” Daníel commented. He wouldn’t reveal the exact location of the warehouse but it is somewhere in South Iceland and is known by locals to be haunted.

The show will premiere on September 3, 2012.
