10 Horror Movies Based On True Events

8. The Conjuring (2013)

The two paranormal investigators in the James Wan movie were based on Ed and Lorraine Warren, real investigators who, during an inspection of the Perron family house in Rhode Island, claimed that the house was haunted by an evil witch named Bathsheba Sheran. Fortunately, the Annabelle doll was not real.

7. The Exorcism Of Emily Rose (2005)

This movie about demonic possession was inspired by a sixteen year old German girl named Anneliese Michel. She was thought to have been possessed by the Devil back in 1968, and it wasn’t until seven years later that two priests performed an exorcism on her that took ten months to finish.
