Well, think! What if I told you that your favorite ghost story wasn’t just a story after all? Although, it is true that the horror stories are either spawned by novelists like Stephen King or screenwriters such as Wes Craven, little do we know that some of the best horror stories are actually retellings of true events.
Well, it changes everything! Doesn’t it? Wait a minute! What if the makers are trying to trick you? Maybe they feel that it would boost the movie’s overall appeal. But, sometimes it is not black and white. There are instances when a horror story is neither a work of fiction nor a retelling of an actual event.
