Yeah I love how 'true' all of those movies are. It's always funny to me to see a scary movie try and market as a true story, but any research into it shows the truth pretty quickly. Still, some of the real life stories behind them are interesting, despite the dramatization.

Oh and Zodiac is a good movie, but I wouldn't say it was scary in any way.

alycakes3408d ago was true but the movie was kinda boring.

'The Girl Next Door' should be on there, It's the only horror movie i've seen that actually tells the story of what really happened. Even after doing research I found that the movie included all of the key points of the actual events. Really good movie too, and not boring in ANY way unlike some on that list..
