Thursday Movies Picks: Based On A True Story
This week's Halloween Theme from Wandering Through The Shelves are those horror movies that are based on true stories. Just like last week, there's lots to choose from. Here are some of my favorites.
1) The Amityville Horror (2005)
I swear I don't just like this because of the gratuitous shot of Ryan Reynolds sans shirt, but for a story as creepy as Amityville, I think this is a very successful horror thriller.
2) The Conjuring
I took way to long to finally watch this movie based on real life paranormal investigators but it was absolutely worth the wait. This is one of the best horror movies I've ever seen, and it's crazy intense without being gory or relying on near constant jump scares.
3) The Exorcism of Emily Rose
I've said this before, but Emily Rose is one of the best PG-13 horror movies out there. It's part courtroom drama, part horror and it's very creepy. The shot of Jennifer Carpenter all contorted on her dorm room floor always gets me.
