Q:

Is the story of Teresa Fidalgo true?

A:

The famous Internet video about Teresa Fidalgo was written and produced by Portuguese producer David Rebordão, and it is not a true story. The video is filmed as a recovered footage video in the same vein as the "Blair Witch Project," and the film is called "A Curva."

The video depicts a group of three friends driving near Sintra, Portugal, where they see a young woman walking on the side of the road late at night. They invite her into the car to get a ride. She is very quiet and after a while points to a part of the road and says that was where she had an accident and died. The camera pans to her face covered in blood and she screams as the car crashes. After the video cuts off, subtitles state that two of the passengers were killed in the accident and that the police discovered that a woman named Teresa Fidalgo died in a car accident in that exact location in 1983.

The story bears similarities to the White Lady legends told around the world for many years. The video's producer, Rebordão, stated on the Portuguese television channel TVI that the film was scripted and not real.
