An Indian cinemagoer has died of a heart attack while watching new horror sequel The Conjuring 2.

The unnamed 65-year-old male collapsed from chest pains at Sri Balasubramaniar Cinema in Tiruvannamalai, a town located in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu, as the film reached its climax.

The man was rushed to a nearby hospital where he later passed away.

Times of India reports that a strange turn of events then followed; after doctors sent his body to Tiruvannamalai Government Medical College Hospital, both the cadaver and the person tasked with transporting it both went missing in the process.

It is believed that the unknown person may have possibly absconded with the body.

Fresh news is yet to be reported on the subject but we're sure that when it arrives there'll be a perfectly rational explanation as opposed to the supernatural forces several commentators clearly believe were at hand.

The Conjuring 2, directed by James Wan, sees Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga reprise their roles of real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren.
