In December 2010, M. Prabhakar, a student living in the Marikavalasa village on the outskirts of Visakhapatnam, India, was attending a screening of four horror films in the commons area of his school. One of the movies was James Cameron’s Aliens. While it isn’t clear which film frightened Prabhakar, reports do indicate that at some point, he left to go to the bathroom, but came back into the commons room screaming, then collapsed.

No one witnessed Prabhakar’s reentrance, however, and it wasn’t until the movie marathon was over than his body was discovered. No cause of death was immediately apparent.
