The Exorcism of Emily Rose

The 2005 horror film is based on the 1976 case of the German girl Anneliese Michel, who died after months of intensive exorcism activity due to malnutrition and dehydration.

There are many debates as to whether The Last Exorcism which released in 2010 is based on a real life event or not. While some say yes, there are a few who called it a fictional horror movie.

The Amityville Horror

The Amityville Horror draws on the real experiences of the Lutz family during the 28 days they spent in their Amityville, N.Y., home at 112 Ocean Avenue. A year before the family moved in, Ronald DeFeo Jr. had murdered six members of his family in the house. The Lutz' experiences launched a series of books which was adapted into 11 films. Daniel Lutz, the eldest of the Lutz children also publicly spoke about his experiences in the documentary My Amityville Horror, released in 2012.
