According to local media reports, Netflix has allegedly criticized for the images used in the film Death Note said to be taken from a real fatal train crash in Belgium in 2010.
A scene in the horror film is reportedly used shots of a crash involving 2 passenger trains that killed ninteen people.
According to Belgian railway spokesman, it showed “little respect” to the victims.
Yet, Netflix is to comment on the reports. It is unclear if filmmakers had permission to use the images.
Dimitri Temmerman, a spokesman for the Belgian rail operator SNCB said they had not been informed of any decision to include the images for the film produced for the streaming service provider.
Belgium’s VRT News reporter said, he described the reported appearance of the aerial footage, used to illustrate an unrelated incident in the film, as “a shock”. Mr Temmerman added that he was looking at suitable response.
60-year-old Anita Mahy, one survivor of the crash told that the decision to include images of the deadly collision amounted to a “complete lack of respect for all those involved”.
She added, you’ll just sit and watch an evening movie unsuspectingly and then face the accident again: “It makes me furious.”
