Top 10 Horror Movies Based on a True Story

Top 10 Horror Movies Based on a True Story

Horror, Top Picks
Horror movies have a tendency to become even scarier when you know that there is some truth in them. Therefore, we have listed the top horror movies that are based on true stories. A horror movie is only as good as its story. If it manages to convince you and really suck you into the story, the movie will also be so much creepier. And something that can really increase the heat and turn up the nerves is when a movie is based on real events. Even though it is only loosely based, it still provides that extra level of credibility needed for us to be really, really scared.

For the most part, when a book is turned into a movie, the result is not quite perfect. There is always a difference between the book and the movie.

Some believe that art should suffer and the expression can hardly be more fitting than with the movie Blade Runner from 1982. Despite a production lined with quarrels, worries and tasteless authority from director Ridley Scott, the dystopian future world and cover story has high regard among film history masterpieces. For those who have no idea what Blade Runner is about, the action is fairly straightforward to clarify: The film is set in Los Angeles in 2019 and it is an extremely dark and rainy neon-drenched world that is now ruled by large multinationals In a future Los Angeles, people live in a dirty and dark world. Replicants, that is, human-like robots, are made to work in space on colonized planets. When these misbehave and ignore their purpose by returning to Earth, "Blade...

Forrest Gump (1994) Movie Review

Movie Review, Top Picks
Given what a huge success "Forrest Gump" was when it was first presented in movie theaters in 1994 and given how many Oscars it won, one would have easily thought that Hollywood had found a new golden theme to make a movie on. In fact, it did not. The following year did not offer films with surviving heroes or the same reverence for American domestic political history that there was obviously a big craving for. This may not be something to mourn, as it is not uncommon for Hollywood to exploit good ideas, but we hardly believe it is the goodness behind it, but rather that "Forrest Gump" has a rather unique script at its core. The script, in turn, is based on a novel by Winston Groom. Tom Hanks was a star even before "Forrest Gump" but it should not be denied that the film gave him

7 Best Horror Movies Through Time

7 Best Horror Movies Through Time

Horror, Top Picks
Horror is not a simple film genre. In terms of entertainment, they often deliver value if you want to see the movie type to be scared, but the really big works always offer something more. Many dismiss horror films categorically as not worthy of watching, others are too scared to watch it, for some, total indifference arises. But when a horror movie has other elements such as excellent directing, a heavy story, well-written script or fine actor efforts, the genre doesn't feel so hollow. The genre exploded in the late 90's and early 00's with films such as Scream and The Ring. Follow-ups were made and made on running tapes. But as many times before, in our opinion, you have to look further back in time to find the very greatest works when film was a film in real life, without digi...
