Actress Katie Holmes narrowly escaped injury on the set of her upcoming movie, "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark," in Victoria, Australia over the weekend.

Holmes was shooting a scene inside a car when the vehicle's battery exploded -- sparking smoke and fumes -- before the car then caught fire.

The exploding battery was not a part of the film.

In the Miramax film (a remake of a 1973 ABC Made-for-TV movie), the wife of Tom Cruise plays a woman stalked by evil gnomes.
