2007 July: Movies Based on True Crimes

(Yes, I did this last month, but I just feel the need and want to do it again!) 

This month, I will spotlight some movies that were based on true crimes. I will admit, I watch these! And I collect them. I like old ones, new ones, bad ones, good ones! OK, I have not liked all of them, especially if they stray so far from the truth that it is ridiculous (for me, one example was Nightstalker However, I believe everyone has a right to their own opinion. There are so many movies based on true crimes that I will not be able to cover all of them this month. So I will do it again. I will probably cover alot of the movies that I personally own or like. In fact, it was a movie based on a true crime that got me interested in crime in the first place:

I watched it the night it premiered on tv (I was like13 at the time, and surprised that my dad actually let me watch it). I was hooked from there!

The best place I have found to get the true story behind a movie, is the following website:

Movies Based on True Stories

Traciy has been working on her site for many years now and has put in alot of work. I “met up” with her when she had a Yahoo! group for this (which I really miss by the way!) and we could discuss them. She has continued to add to her database over the years. I am amazed at how many she has been able to dig up. Her site is great. Please visit it.

  2. Allan,

    Do you mean the movie was good or that the murders were awesome? I hope you mean the movie!

    I will be posting on this movie this week. It is based on “Career Girl” murders, victims Janice Wylie and Emily Hoffert, in 1963.
