Video of Teresa Fidalgo
In the video clip that went viral around the country, a group of 3 friends, Tiago, Tania, and David, were driving through a secluded area late at night. They were discussing how they don’t believe in ghosts and spirits yet get this feeling of their presence when traveling through such areas.
While driving, they saw a woman in a white gown hitchhiking. As the woman was alone, they decided to give her a lift. The woman looked really beautiful; however, she was strangely quiet for some time when she got into the car. They were asking if she was doing okay or not.
She mentions her name is Teresa and says she will get off near there. She points at the destination and suddenly says that an accident took place there in which she died. It was the ghost of Teresa.
Suddenly, when they rotated the recording camera to her face, her face changed, soaked in blood, and the car crashed. In the accident, two group members, a male, and a woman died, and the third one survived, David.

There is a fine probability that you might have come across such conspiracy theories, controversies and threats. One such story is Teresa Fidalgo’s post that went viral on social platforms like Whatsapp, Instagram, Email, and Facebook, threatening users to share the posts or be prepared for consequences.
The story about Teresa Fidalgo’s ghost tormenting people by sending messages through social media is false news. Teresa Fidalgo is not a ghost in real life but a fictional character played by a girl in the Portuguese short film ‘A Curve. ‘ This means that the video was not fake, but the viral story of messages being circulated by the ghost herself was false.
However, a real incident that is very similar actually took place with 3 friends. One of them, David, who was recording the video, made it alive but still could not explain what happened that night. According to the Police record, Teresa Fidalgo died in the same spot in Sintra, Portugal, in 1983.
In 2014, David Rebordao mentioned that it was a makeover story after his movie ‘A Curva’ went viral. According to Rebordao, it is “the most-watched short film of all time in Portugal”.
The full version of the movie, which is a total duration of 12 minutes, is not available on the internet but is sold as a DVD. However, you can find a 6 minutes short movie A CURVA, on the internet, and the IMDb rating of this is 7.3/10, which is a pretty good response.
