5 horror movies based on real events
When horror movies make us so afraid that I want to close my eyes, it is advised to remember that everything that happens on the screen - an invention that actually none of this has never been, and most likely will not. It really can work fine, except when horror movies were indeed based on a true story.
The Exorcist (1973)
The film in its time caused such a stir that the UK even forbidden to release it on tape - the ban lifted only in 1999, when the film has become too "old fashioned" and kinopriemy used to it, no longer frighten the audience.
As the basis for the book Peter Blatt, of which later made a film "The Exorcist", history was taken, which was published in The Washington Post newspaper in 1949. The article was entitled "The priest Frieze of Mount Rainier freed the boy, whose possessed by the devil."
The article tells the story of a boy (his real name is not called, giving him a "general" Roland Doe's name), living at his aunt, who was fond evocation of spirits through the Ouija board. When my aunt died, the family began to complain that the house began to move by themselves, and even flying objects. The family turned to the pastor. The boy spent the night in the house of the pastor, then pastor advised the family to appeal to a Catholic priest, that he spent the exorcism rite.
At first, the boy was taken to Georgetown University and conducted an exorcism ritual there. Roland tied at while reading malt, but he was released and heavily wounded priest. Then we decided to hold a ceremony in the house of my aunt, as all of these events is associated with it. At this time, once we invited two priests - and both are told that during the reading of prayers bed, to which Roland was tied, shook things fly around the house, and Roland spoke to them not with his voice. After that, the boy was taken to hospital, and there is the same ritual attempted to have three priests. Bed bound by Roland shook, and the boy responded aggressively to any religious items, whether it is the Bible, a cross or holy water.
Allow the situation was only the fourth time, when the priests were gathered around the icon of the Archangel Michael and chanted prayers until Roland fell into a trance. boy simply said seven minutes later: "Everything he's gone." Upon awakening, Roland said he saw the archangel Michael fought with the devil and defeated him. No more strange things in the life of Roland did not happen - he lived a normal life, married, and named his son Michael (Michael) in honor of his rescuer.
