So one of the things that writers some times tend to do when it comes to horror movies, is they will take brutal true crime horror events, and then either make movies about those killers, or they will make movies inspired by those murderers!
And where as I think the original act is truly horrible… (As I am sure we can all agree,) as a horror movie fan, I find the movies that were either inspired by, or directly made based on what happened to be rather enjoyable.
And so if you are looking for a new horror movie to get in to, I hope you will enjoy these 5 awesome horror movies based on true crime events/inspirated by true crime horror events!
