These movies are even creepier once you realize that they were partially based on true stories.

Child’s Play (1988) - The script was based on a nurse who allegedly put a voodoo curse on author Robert Eugene Otto which transformed one of his childhood dolls into a night-time menace. We all have seen scary movies with possessed dolls but knowing that the doll really existed is spooky! The original doll is on exhibit today in a museum where people say it sometimes moves it's head and eyes.

The Exorcist (1973) - The Exorcist novel by Mario Puzzo is based on a book which is based on real life of a boy named Roland Doe who was possessed by demons in 1949. The exorcism was so scary that there have been books written on people who witnessed it. This story will give you goosebumps, all for real reasons. Puzzo used many of the original facts to create his Exorcist book in 1972, including the name of the priest.

It is also true that people who taunted the doll in the museum faced near death or fatal accidents.

The Dentist (1966) - One thing we know for sure is that after seeing this movie, your next visit to the dentist will be really hard.

I'm a huge horror movie fan, but I thought Ravenous was lame.

Want an underrated cannibal movie? Go find Raw Meat or Terror at Red Wolf Inn.
