7. Most Scary Films “Based on a True Story”
Remember when horror movies were fresh, fun and exciting? They didn’t rely on the aid of an overused gimmick. The “based on a true story” tagline is not only a desperate cry for attention, but most of these flicks turn out to be dull wastes of time.
Fake jump scares, tepid storyline and a horrible CGI ghost. These are things in a horror movie we hate most. Nine times out of ten, a frightful flick claims “to be based on true events,” however these tales are far from true.
Yet, it seems Hollywood is going to keep cranking out crap movies like Paranormal Activity. At this point, it feels more like they’re tricking people into buying tickets than actually trying to create good movies. Oh, Hollywood, enough already. If you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all.
