In Universal Studios there is not one, but two spirits that are known to haunt Sound Stage 28. The first is the ghost of the Phantom of the Opera himself, Lon Chaney. Ever since his death in 1930, his ghost has been seen frequently on the lot. The other is the ghost of an electrician who fell off a catwalk and died in 1925. His spirit has been seen roaming the catwalks of the studio ever since. In the 1980's, when Poltergeist II was being filmed in the lot, the cast and crew could attest to feeling an "eerie" presence and reported having terrifying nightmares.
