True Story

Why I don’t pay attention to the “based on a true story” aspect of a horror film:

You know how these 3 famous films are based on true stories?
The Texas chainsaw massacre
Silence of the lambs

That actually just means one of their characters was inspired by a real life killer
Leather face
Norman bates
Buffalo bill

In fact, they’re all based on the same killer, Ed Gein
Ed Gein

so if you find yourself scared of a film because it “really happened” remember that Texas Chainsaw, Psycho and Silence of the Lambs are all retellings of the same “true event”.
