It is hard to pass up a good horror movie these days, though they sometimes feel too far apart from each other. A nice slasher flick from the early days is always a good option. The best part of those types of films, however, is the fact that many of them were based on real incidences or real experiences that the directors had while living their daily lives, especially as children. Some horror stories can actually come true, which makes them all the more terrifying to the viewer. Sometimes people watch too many horror movies and try to recreate the possibilities. Here are ten horror tales that intersected with real life at one point or another.
Upon release, the horror movie The Strangers struck a chord with many people due to the fact that it was based on a true story. According to the director, when he was a kid, someone knocked on their front door while he was home with only his sister. The man had, apparently, been looking for vacant homes to burglarize.
Friday The 13th
The original Friday The 13th did not feature the same iconic killer we have all come to know and adore. Some people began taking trips to where the film was shot, which was the home of the Boy Scouts camp of the area. They had to deal with unknown individuals breaking into their camp on a regular basis at Camp Crystal Lake.
