Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks.
It’s a series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme.
To continue the horror topics that traditional for October, today I bring you a bunch of movies that are based on or were inspired by true events!
#1 The Exorcism of Emily Rose
Super creepy and haunting exorcism film, which is inspired by the death of a German woman.
#2 The Conjuring
The paranormal investigators from this franchise are based on a real-life couple and therefore, the events depicted in the films are also supposedly true.
#3 The Shining
Stephen King was inspired to write The Shining when he actually stayed in a hotel very similar to the Overlook which was said to be haunted!
What’s your favorite horror movie inspired by true events? Let me know in the comments!
