Terrifying True Stories That Deserve to be Horror Movies!
Things happen to everyday people throughout the world and we just don’t hear about them. Some of them are so horrifying they deserve to be made into horror movies and here are 3 that are yet to reach the big screen but they surely will!
1 Dr. Henry H. Homes
Believed to be America’s first serial killer, with a body count believed to be up to 200 victims; there is yet to be a big screen movie made about this horrific murder. Back in the 1890’s Homes built a custom Hotel in Chicago with a special killing floor where he had built windowless rooms, mazes, and traps; making it pretty much inescapable by his poor victims. Doors opened to brick walls and laundry chutes were used to dump bodies into flesh stripping acid. Some minor pieces of this horrific killer’s stories have been adapted in other files; but for this horrific mass murderer a true account of his bizarre and deathly practices definitely deserves’ its own movie. A documentary has been produced, but a feature film would be a definite winner for this weird and sick serial killer.
2 The Winchester House
What a great name for a horror film without giving too much away. The Winchester House is one of the weirdest and strangest buildings in America and was the home of the deceased Sarah Winchester. Ms. Winchester believed that ghosts created by the rifles owned by her late husband, the gun creator William Winchester, had come for her for vengeance. Believing she need protection from the guns created by her husband, she build a North Carolina mansion which was actually under construction for a ridiculous 36 years! Ms. Winchester believed that keeping her house in a constant state of construction would ward off her dead husband’s created spirits in the guns as it would keep the spirits in a state of flux constantly and they would not be able to settle, and then focus on her. Sounds like Ms Winchester had lost her marbles as well as all her money building a home for 36 years! Ms. Winchester got so lost in the importance of continuous building that the home contains windows that look into the home, and not outside, and stairways and doors that lead to nowhere. It was estimated that Ms. Winchester spend over $75 millions in today’s rates warding off the spirits that inhabited her husband’s guns. The house is on a tourist attraction tour since Ms. Winchester died in 1923. A movie based on this weird and bizarre woman and house would make for some interesting horror. Instead of people haunting and chasing you through the house, there will be Winchester rifles and guns coming for you. Weird but true.
3 The Disappearance and Death of Elisa Lam
This story has recently gone viral with the unexplained death of Elisa because of the weird circumstances surrounding her death. Recently Elisa, a 21 years old student was reported missing, and her body was found shortly thereafter on the rooftop water tank of a Hotel in Los Angeles. She was only found as guests in the hotel were complaining about the taste of the water! Police watched the video tapes from the Hotel which are on YouTube, and the short surveillance video along are giving people the creeps. The paranormal enthusiasts around the world are throwing theories out there from aliens to demons, but this one is yet to be explained. There was no drugs or alcohol found in her body after the autopsy results were released. The Cecil Hotel itself has a spotted history, being the location of 13 previous murders and a famous spot for suicides. Creepy Hotel and even scarier disappearance with the discovery of a 21 year old college student’s body in a very weird location. This one is just screaming for someone to make a horror flick.
