Like a mysterious plot from a scary movie, an Indian pensioner died while watching the horror film ‘The Conjuring 2’ - only for his body then to go missing.

As the newly-released film reached its climax during a cinema screening on Thursday night in the town of Tiruvannamalai in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu, G. Ram Mohan complained of chest pains before fainting. 

H. Prasad, a friend, then rushed the 65-year-old to a nearby hospital, but he had died by the time they arrived, reported Times of India

Doctors then asked Prasad to transfer the body to the Tiruvannamalai Government Medical College Hospital on the outskirts of the town for a post mortem.

Much like a horror script, the real life events then took an eerie plot twist with both men then disappearing, having never arrived at the morgue.

Police have launched an investigation into the disappearance, talking with taxi drivers in the area to see if anyone saw Prasad or Mohan, who are understood to have been in the town on a business trip.

This isn’t the first time the film has left some of its viewers somewhat rattled.

Damian Ng Yih Leong posted an image to Facebook claiming a crucifix had appeared on the bathroom mirror of his hotel room after he had watched a screening of the film.

Creeped out by what had apparently happened, Yih Leong and his girlfriend requested to be moved to another room.
