A 77-year-old British man was discovered dead in a theater following a screening Annabelle Comes Home.
Bernard Channing was on vacation in Thailand recently when he apparently decided to take in a screening of the movie Annabelle Comes Home. It’s unclear what exactly happened to him after the lights went down. However, when the lights came back up at the theater in the city of Pattaya, Channing was discovered to have passed away.
Emergency services were called by the theater patrons who discovered the body, but he was pronounced dead inside the theater. Needless to say, the others inside the movie were a little shaken after discovering they had been sharing the theater for some portion of the film with a man who had died. Considering the horror movie likely had them already on edge, things must have felt like the movie never ended.
It’s certainly possibly that a 77-year-old man simply had his heart give out during the movie. It’s also possible that the stress, however slight, associated with watching a horror movie, could have contributed to the event. According to The Sun, an autopsy will be performed to determine the exact cause of death.
