Top 9 Films Based on Supernatural True Events

3 hours ago | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

There's something more chilling about movies based on true events. Knowing that at least some version of what you're seeing on the screen actually happened in real life makes the movie more powerful. With the upcoming release of The Quiet Ones, we decided to reminisce about other movies based on horrific real life events.

The Quiet Ones is inspired by a true story of a university experiment done on a young girl that goes horribly, horribly wrong, so we focused on movies based on claims of supernatural true events.

There is a huge list of honorable mentions in this category. We could even break it down into sub-categories, like movies based on the antics of Ed Gein: The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, The Silence of the Lambs, Psycho and Deranged. True crime reenactments: In Cold Blood, Helter Skelter and Zodiac just to name a few of the best. Even real »

The Quiet Ones review Shrewd and fierce paranormal horror

15 April 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Olivia Cooke excels as a possibly possessed girl locked up for academics to study in the latest Hammer film

The resuscitated Hammer Films latest is a shrewd bit of retrofitting that like its Us equivalent, The Conjuring reverses the paranormal activity bandwagon back to the early 1970s. A suavely patrician Jared Harris is the Oxford professor keeping a traumatised, possibly possessed young girl (Olivia Cooke) locked up for research purposes; Sam Claflin is the virginal camera enthusiast who's enlisted to document any breakthrough, only to wind up recording a series of increasingly loud bangs and crashes. The latter form an obvious concession to multiplex mores, but can't obscure the more resonant dynamics between the professor and his acolytes, set to wondering whether these tests aren't just extending the girl's distress. Perhaps too business-minded to be distinctively scary the team's deployment of Slade as a wake-up call is the sole idiosyncrasy »

Shailene Woodley Talks ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ at MTV Movie Awards

14 April 2014 11:49 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort attended Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards to introduce a new clip from their film, “The Fault in Our Stars.”

“That’s the thing about the story — it’s a cancer book, a cancer movie, that’s not about cancer,” Woodley told Variety. “It’s about love and it’s about universal messages. It’s a celebration of life.”

The film, adapted from John Green’s novel, is a story about two teens that fall in love after meeting at a cancer support group.

Green said he was truly inspired from the actors’ dedication.

“With characters like that you have to be really authentic and real, and I wanted to bring a sense of authenticity and truth to them,” said Woodley.
