"Real Fear: The Truth Behind the Movies" Tonight

On Chiller Channel tonight is a very cool new show - "Real Fear: The Truth Behind the Movies" at 8 pm (EST) It will uncover the terrifying real-life stories that inspired some of the most popular horror films of all time! Paranormal investigator Katrina Weidman (Paranormal State), along with three of her colleagues, reveal the secrets behind four iconic movies: Poltergeist, The Amityville Horror, Silent Hill and The Mothman Prophecies
The special also features exclusive eyewitness accounts from Lucille Herrmann, whose family made national attention in 1958, when they experienced unexplained poltergeist activity in their house in Seaford, NY (later influencing the popular film); and Christopher Lutz, the youngest member of the Amityville family who lived through the terrifying paranormal events in the infamous Long Island home.


  1. I saw this, too! This looks so interesting. I DVR'd it but haven't watched it yet. I know the details of the real case behind The Excorcist and how Ed Gein inspired the Texas Chainsaw massacre, but the one I am really anxious to see- and I hope they include it- is The Entity. This, too, was based on a real case, and the little I have found about the actual facts- the real life case was as terrifying as the movie was. And the movie, besides the made-up ending, did apparently stick very close to the facts and had some really strange stuff happen during the filming. It's rarely been discussed on paranormal shows of this type, though. It would be great if they include it.


    I'm such a loser.
