Based on a True Story

We've all seen the movies that claim to be 'based on a true story', but have you ever wondered how historically accurate they are? That's what we'll aim to find out as we compare Hollywood with history.

The Conjuring

Happy Halloween! I wanted to do something special this week. I thought it'd be fun to cover the true story behind something scary. But after starting to look for some movies to fit the bill, I quickly realized most of the scary movies that claim to be based on a true story also require a belief in something extraordinary—something supernatural.

Some stories are simply strange, and we don't know the truth. The only thing we do know is what those who lived through the events claim. With that in mind, and in the spirit of Halloween, let's hear the tale of those who were involved and see how it compares to Hollywood's reinterpretation of The Conjuring.
