10. The Iceman
An ice man was discovered in the Alps in 1991 and it was estimated to be over 5,000 years old. But, after his discovery, seven of the people who found him died over the course of thirteen years and not by natural causes. For instance, one person died in a car accident, another was killed in an avalanche, another died from accidentally falling off a cliff and another from a blood disorder. The Iceman curse is currently one of the most famous curses of modern times.
9. The Crying Boy Painting
This painting of a young boy was set on the walls of multiple homes throughout Europe. But, many of the homes the painting was placed in became the victims of fires and explosions. Even though the homes would be burned down to the ground, The Crying Boy painting was always found to be completely intact in the aftermath. But, what's really bizarre about this "supposed curse" is the fact that the painter of the painting from Madrid said that he had made the painting of a wondering orphan whose parents have died in a house fire.
Even a priest had warned the painter that the each home the boy was led into was destroyed due to a fire at one time or another, the painter did not believe him and took the boy into his studio to paint him. But sure enough, his studio caught on fire as well, and burned down. Causing the painter to banish the orphan from his presence.
8. Hope Diamond
This is one of the most famous diamonds in the entire world. But, there is a curse associated with it. The diamond was stolen from the head of of an idol in the 1600 and it is said that the priest of the temple of the idol was cursed in the stone. Sure enough, each and every owner of the diamond met a horrible demise including the Princess of France who was murdered by a mob in Paris. Even the jewelers who kept the diamond in their shop died mysterious deaths as well. The diamond is currently on display in the United States.
The curse surrounding this diamond is very similar to the curse of the Hope Diamond. But what is unique about this diamond is that every female owner of it was brought great fortune and luck in their lives. But every male who has owned the diamond has been met with a terrible deaths. Diamonds are truly a girl's best friend. Number 6, the Superman curse. Most of the actors who have portrayed superman in either films or television shows have died of ways other than natural causes, ranging from suicide to complications from being paralyzed.
This curse began because the original comic book creators of Superman cursed their own superhero after they were denied the rights and money to the character. The Superman curse remains one of the most infamous curses of modern times. So, it's only a matter of time until we see what happens to the Superman actors from the more recent years.
5. The Bambino curse
The Bambino curse is one of the most famous sports curse in the world. The Boston Red Sox team had a string of bad luck after Babe Ruth was traded to the New York Yankees in the 1920s, but up until then, the Yankees were the ones with the bad luck. Following Ruth's trade, the Yankees won World Series after World Series while the Red Sox lost again and again. But, that changed in 2004 when the Red Sox finally won a World Series, during a total lunar eclipse. What was even more bizarre about this curse is that they won against the Yankees.

People who have stolen a small piece of the stone have reported suffering from depression and bad financial conditions among other things. So bad was the curse that multiple people who stole a piece of the stone sent it back to Ireland.
1. Tecumseh's curse
This curse was bestowed upon every american president in the White House. Elected every 20 years from William Henry Harrison up until John Fitzgerald Kennedy. The curse originated when William Henry Harrison, governor of Indiana Territory in 1811 broke a treaty with chief Tecumseh. This led to a war between the US and the Shawnee in which many of Tecumseh's men were killed and Harrison's reputation continued to grow. Finally, Tecumseh cursed Harrison to death when he was elected to the White House, in addition to every president elected after Harrison every 20 years.

Harrison in 1840, Lincoln in 1860, Garfield in 1880, McKinley in 1900, Harding in 1920, Roosevelt in 1940, and JFK in 1960. President Reagan who was elected in 1980 was the victim of an assassination attempt, but survived. Supposedly breaking the curse as George W Bush, who was elected in 2000 and survived as well.
