Episode Thirty-Six: Real To Reel Horror

The world is full of real-life horrors, so it isn’t surprising that fictional horror sometimes takes its cue from true events. While most are familiar with the supposedly real stories behind movies like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Psycho, Jaws, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, and The Amityville Horror, on this episode of 13 O’Clock, Tom and Jenny discuss four lesser-known recent horror films with plots somewhat based in reality: The Possession (based on the infamous dybbuk box), The Quiet Ones (based on the Philip Experiment), The Girl Next Door (based on the horrific torture and murder of Sylvia Likens), and The Forest (based on Aokigahara, Japan’s Suicide Forest). Listen in as horror gets real…sort of.
