KatieHolm_Jean_57751043_600 Katie Holmes was nearly hurt on the set of her upcoming movie, “Don't Be Afraid of the Dark,” in Victoria, Australia, this weekend.

Radaronline.com reports that Holmes was being filmed inside a car when the vehicle's battery exploded and the car caught fire.

In the film – based on (now this sounds like a winner) a remake of a 1973 ABC TV movie, Tom Cruise's wife plays a woman stalked by evil gnomes.

Talk about type-casting.

Sorry, we had to say it.

We are so ashamed….
