What's The Scariest Horror Film That's Also Based On Real Events?

BuzzFeed 1 month ago

Horror films are all fun and games when they're fictional, but the second we find out that they're based on something that REALLY happened, we're like, "LOL, NO THANK YOU."

Warner Bros.

So — with this in mind — what's the scariest "based on a true story" horror film you've EVER seen?

Rogue Pictures

Maybe the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre had you up all night googling stories about Ed Gein and his heinous crimes.

Bryanston Distributing Company

Or perhaps it was one of the films in The Conjuring universe that shook you to your core when you realized the Warrens were real-life people.

Warner Bros.

Heck, maybe it was a deeper cut, like 1976's The Town That Dreaded Sundown, that forever had you scared to sit in your car at night.

American International Pictures
