5 Chilling True Stories Behind Horror Films

Many scary movies appear too far-fetched and chilling to be true, but that’s not always the case. Some horrors have been based on true events and it’s terrifying to think that what you’re watching on screen has happened in real life…

5. Psycho (1960)

Psycho originated as a 1959 thriller written by American writer Robert Bloch. It went on to become one of the greatest horrors of all time and among Alfred Hitchcock’s most memorable productions. But, what was the truth behind the creepy Norman Bates?

It’s widely understood that Bloch’s character of Norman Bates was based on Ed Gein, a man who committed a series of gruesome crimes in America and had an unhealthy obsession with his mother. The grim truth about Gein only came to light in 1957, following the suspicious disappearance of Bernice Worden — who was later found gutted inside Gein’s house of horrors.

Is Intergenerational Dating Reality Show 'Age Gap Love' Bad TV? Or So Bad It's Great?

We love watching fictional intergenerational relationships — think The Graduate or As Good as It Gets or Lost in Translation — but somehow real-life May-December romances aren't so popular. Take Age Gap Love, for example. The British reality show aired across the pond four years ago, but it just hit Netflix in February. And fans who are just tuning in can't seem to decide if they love to hate it or if they just plain hate it. The premise of Age Gap Love is pretty much what you'd expect. "Despite the social backlash and challenges that come with intergenerational romance, these couples choose to stick together through thick and thin," Netflix says in its synopsis. There's 79-year-old Edna and her 39-year-old husband, for example, two lovers who bonded over organ music. And there's 68-year-old Joan, who found 29-year-old Phil online after posting a Facebook ad looking for a "toy boy." Or how

Netflix's 'Tabula Rasa' Is Basically the New 'American Horror Story' — You've Been Warned!

Need a quick horror fix? Look no further than the new Netflix series Tabula Rasa, which we are calling the Dutch American Horror Story. It has all the trappings of the Ryan Murphy thriller, complete with haunted house, mental asylum, and a seemingly possessed child. Don't say you haven't been warned. The show premieres on March 15 and centers around Annemie D'Haeze, portrayed by actress Veerle Baetens, who loses her memory following a car accident. However, she quickly becomes a key figure in a missing person case and must reconstruct her memories to clear her name. This makes sense since the Latin phrase Tabula Rasa translates to "clean slate." The only problem: a seriously haunted house where she lives with her husband and child — who don't believe Annemie when it comes to the red powder she sees falling from the ceilings or the red riding hood-esque demons she encounters in the hallways.

The Hollywood News Writers’ Top Movies Of 2017

It’s always difficult putting together these end of year lists. The main reason we don’t usually post a best in show at the end of the year is because it’s rather difficult to know where to draw the lines of terms of what should and shouldn’t be included.

We’re lucky enough to attend some of the big film festivals around the world every year, and some films we see don’t necessarily release in the same calendar year as we see them. It would be easy to simply say that our best of 2017 is made up of motion pictures released during the year January 1st to December 31st, but which release schedule do we use? I will give you an example. The most sensible system to abide by would be the UK calendar, but that would mean films like La La Land and Manchester By The Sea

Toronto 2017 Review: VERÓNICA, Treading Familiar Teenage Ground

Teenage girls have always been ripe fodder for horror filmmakers. Either as monsters or victims (or both), the body changes (not to mention the change in treatment by other people, especially men) and vulnerability of girs at this age can make for some interesting metaphors of terror. In Paco Plaza's latest feature film Verónica, he shines the light on one such girl whose dabbling in mischief goes horribly wrong. Verónica (or Vero, ably potrayed by newcomer Sandra Escacena), has a bit more on her plate than the average teenage girl: with her mother (Ana Torrent) constantly working, Vero is left in charge of her younger sisters and brother, feeding them, getting them dressed and to school in the morning, and babysitting most nights.

Tiff Review: ‘Verónica’ is an Intense, But Familiar Tale of Demonic Possession

The story goes that the police were dispatched to a Madrid residence in June of 1991 only to find a teenage girl screaming from what appeared to be self-inflicted wounds. Strange phenomena was seen/found throughout the apartment, so much that the detective assigned the case could do nothing but corroborate the paranormal explanation being delivered by those close to the family. Everything supposedly stemmed from a seancé gone wrong three days earlier at the exact time of a solar eclipse. The teen hoped to contact her father only to discover it was something else that responded. A wild story to be sure, the simple fact it proved the first recorded account of the supernatural by a police officer in Spain made it worth a closer look.

The men who dug deeper: director Paco Plaza (one half of the duo behind contemporary horror classic [Rec]) and co-writer Fernando Navarro. They took that
