In this scene, Heath Ledger had to improvise because the charges rigged to explode had some glitches, which delayed the explosion. His reaction when the hospital exploded was real.

No, the explosion was scripted to be delayed, his actions in between his button pressing and the explosion is what was improved.

They also only had the one take to do it in, couldn't blow up a different hospital. Without the improv this part of the movie would have had to been cut/done with special effects

It wasn't real, it was improvised by the actor himself
Because he was awesome like that

The reaction from the crew in Alien was real   
as no one had told them what was going to happen

The "Nightmare on Elm Street" one is based off of a small town in upstate New York called Potsdam. A teenage boy lived there with his father in the mid-70's, and after a fight, killed him with a knife. The boy then went missing for 3 days. They finally caught him, and I believe he's still in prison.

The movie wasn't based on the actual story, just the fast that horrifying things like that can happen in small, idyllic towns. They did keep the street name, though.

How do I know this? My grandparents live one street over from Elm Street. My uncle was that boy's best friend. The cops caught him trying to break into my grandparent's house to visit my uncle.

MFW I was a kid visiting my grandparents and heard that story.

My dad grew up in Mt. Rainier Maryland, where "the Exorcist" happened in real life. The preach who performed the exorcist preached at the church my dad went to. They had to move the church to Rome to escape the media.

Whether he was possessed or not this kid went full ape ****.

The "chest wax" scene from the 40 Year Old Virgin was completely real.
Steve Carrell had told the director beforehand; "It has to be real. It won't be as funny if it's mocked up or if it's special effect. You have to see that this is really happening."

Five cameras were used because of this, as it meant that the scene had to be done in one shot.

so Steve Carrell is really that much of a fuzz-ball?

I think maybe some fake hair was added, but it was waxed off along with his real hair.
However, I could be wrong, there's a good chance he is actually that hairy.

Leo DiCaprio accidentally cut his hand on broken glass when he slammed his fist on the table, but continued with the scene.

He can be seen picking broken glass from his bloody hand for the duration of the scene, and Kerry Washington's look of horror as he smears blood on her face was from genuine shock.

Travolta's reaction in this scene is real, he accidentally shot marvin in the face for real and this lead to some drastic script changes

"a nightmare on elm street was loosely based on real events".
Meaning there's a street called elm street?

The I got a jar of dirt scene was unscripted. Johnny Depp just went with it so the actors reactions are actually their real reaction to him doing it.

when Pippin and Merry are in the Tent the "Yelp" you hear is from one of them because they were not told the firework was actually going to launch.
