    “As for the doll, it remains in the Warrens’ museum to this day, inside a case marked “Warning, positively do not open.”” Is there anything more terrifying/exciting than when you’re watching a horror movie that is based on a true story?? There’s a certain thrill associated with exposing yourself to such movies - will I be able to separate myself from the horror or will I not sleep tonight?! Behind the Horror is a book that will appeal to horror movie fans, as well as true crime fanatics and those “As for the doll, it remains in the Warrens’ museum to this day, inside a case marked “Warning, positively do not open.”” Is there anything more terrifying/exciting than when you’re watching a horror movie that is based on a true story?? There’s a certain thrill associated with exposing yourself to such movies - will I be able to separate myself from the horror or will I not sleep tonight?! Behind the Horror is a book that will appeal to horror movie fans, as well as true crime fanatics and those who enjoy the paranormal - and if you happen to love all of those, like myself, then it will feel like the holy grail. In each chapter, Dr Lee Mellor tackles a different horror movie that is inspired by a real life story. First and foremost, there are spoilers for the horror movies that Mellor is discussing, so you’ve been warned! Luckily I had already seen most of the movies covered, and those that I haven’t seen I didn’t care too much about reading the plot. Each chapter opens with a short summary of the movie in question, before Mellor delves into the surrounding background. Numerous famous movies and cases are explored, from The Exorcist, Jaws and The Conjuring to the crimes of Ted Bundy, the exorcism of “Roland Doe” and the Salem witch trials. And shout out to my faves Ed and Lorraine Warren who made a few appearances! But there were also a few less popular ones that I had never heard of before, such as the Texarkana moonlight murders and the Gainesville Ripper. All very interesting. I enjoyed revisiting the stories and movies that I know so well, in addition to learning some new facts and trivia that I can slide up my sleeve for future reference. I’d definitely recommend! Oh, and there’s pictures included! Always a bonus. 4 stars.

If you like horror movies, or learning about true crime, and especially if you like both, this is definitely a worthwhile little book to read. Although, do keep in mind that it does spoil each film it talks about.

    This is an absolute must read for any horror and/or true crime fan. I was completely hooked from the very first page, I couldn’t get enough of this book. Getting to see the true crime and other origins of some of my favourite horror movies was truly fascinating! I didn’t know any of the facts presented in this book, I’ve never delved into where the movies I love so much came from before. It was all new information for me and my mind absolutely was blown by what I was reading. It’s fascinating to This is an absolute must read for any horror and/or true crime fan.

I really loved reading where the more supernatural/religious movies like The Exorcist came from as well, once again, all new information for me. I really, truly couldn’t have enjoyed this book more and I can’t stress enough how much you should read this book if you’re into horror and true crime!

    There wasn’t really much here I didn’t already know but it was fun to have in one book. The main issue were small little mistakes about the films themselves. Yes, they were minor ones but enough to make me wonder how the author made them in the first place and how nobody else picked up on them in proof reading. An example being that Scream apparently starts off with the murder of a ‘babysitter’.

    True Crime/ Horror will never cease to be the thing that terrifies me the most. For me, nothing is scarier than reality and when reading this book, I genuinely found myself scared shitless. It’s the unknown. The invasion of safe space. The unpredictability of (hu)man. The idea that someone could gain your trust, infiltrate your life, and then take it.

The simpl True Crime/ Horror will never cease to be the thing that terrifies me the most. For me, nothing is scarier than reality and when reading this book, I genuinely found myself scared shitless. It’s the unknown. The invasion of safe space. The unpredictability of (hu)man. The idea that someone could gain your trust, infiltrate your life, and then take it. It’s the depth of darkness and depravity that dwells in the human mind. And how that may manifest. It’s the tangibility. The possibility. The simple actuality that you are governed entirely by uncontrollable circumstance. You may wake up one day for it be to your last, and yet be completely oblivious. For all the fear it inspired in me, I found Behind the Horror fascinating and exhilarating. When people ask why we enjoy horror and true crime, the answer comes from science. The biochemical reaction that is piston triggered by fear releases a heady, euphoric rush of adrenaline, dopamine and endorphins (which is extremely valuable to a person who is naturally low on these), acting on the opiate receptors in our brains to encourage pleasure and pain relief. Sexy! Whilst providing a suitable sense of shit scared (but safe) satisfaction, this book is actually very informative without being overbearing. There are brief, spoiler inclusive, summaries of the films before the author delves into their individual inspirations. The inclusion of photographs (which I viewed by daylight) was a brilliant touch that allowed for the truly terrifying experience of matching a murderous mystery to an actual face that would be seared into the brain before creeping into your dreams that very night. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Though I did end up checking the locks and under the bed just in case. I recommend it to all horror fans.

    A well-researched collection of true crime incidents that served as inspiration for some of the greatest horror movies of all time. Mellor has an easy and unpretentious writing style sprinkled with wry humour to sometimes counteract the incredibly bleak and violent subject matter. The tales, and often hoaxes, behind the poltergeist- inspired films, such as 'Poltergeist' and the 'Amityville Horror' are the weaker chapters, but overall, this was an enjoyable page-turner.

    “There is nothing scarier than a true story” Behind The Horror by Dr Lee Mellor is an in-depth look at the true stories which influenced the horror movies we have all come to know and enjoy. He takes each movie and relates it to the true events which inspired the stories to be told.

There are many more the author looks into and the specific facts were quite surprising to me. The book is a horror fans dream, I know I do it if I watch or read something I’ve enjoyed I will turn to google and start my own investigation on how the story came together 😆 that’s exactly what this book does for you. Some facts were maybe new to you and some you may already know. I was surprised by a few which were mentioned like The Witch and The Lighthouse. A fun read I would definitely recommend and thanks to @jobis89 for putting this on my radar 🖤

    As a true crime and horror fan this book was an obvious choice for me and it was so, so good! I've always said if a horror film scares me then that is how I rate it as being good and as you can imagine ones inspired by true events are usually very highly rated by me because if a horror film could actually happen in real life then that is the pinnacle of fear in my opinion so to learn about the actual crimes that inspired some of my all time favourite horror films was so interesting. Each chapter As a true crime and horror fan this book was an obvious choice for me and it was so, so good!

Each chapter in this great non-fic read is based on a different horror film and goes into detail about the cases that inspired the directors and writers of iconic horror films when they were working on them to help create the films we know today. It was incredibly interesting and filled with so many facts and so much information to really help you delve into the cases. Overall, I highly recommend this book if you are a fan of true crime and horror!

    Excellent material, written at arms length The book covered a much more broad set of material than I expected. I anticipated the stories about serial killers. I did not expect the history of the Vietnam war and an exploration of the cultural link between goats and Satan. That said, the author’s tone is often distant, nearly academic. And the background material on ghost movies is somewhat redundant, drawing so much (as he does) on the work of Ed and Lorraine Warren.

    I appreciated the straightforward way this book was written. It didn’t seem to embellish any of the details of the true crime stories that inspired famous movies and somehow, that made it an even creepier read. I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Some of the people Mellor examines that unwittingly became part of these classic films include Australia's serial killer Ivan Milat, the very creepy English serial killer John Christie and American Danny Rolling who was known as the Gainesville Ripper. It is a fascinating read and unveils a few hoaxes and unscrupulous characters that have not only made news in the mainstream media, but their stories have spiced up the plots of many films that make your skin crawl.

    Perfect intersection of crime and horror. Gives some background to what built some favourite movies and added a couple to my watch list. With Dr. Mellor's style being conversational, the true accounts read stranger than fiction and as ever, more terrifying. Perfect intersection of crime and horror.

    An interesting read. The book talks about a number of different famous horror/suspense movies and the events/people that they were based on. Some of the movies featured include "Scream", "Psycho", "Jaws", "Silence of the Lambs", "Poltergeist", "The Conjuring", "The Amityville Horror", "A Nightmare on Elm Street", "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", and more. I was quite surprised to learn that "Jaws" was based on some rather unusual real-life shark attacks that really did claim the lives of 4 people, An interesting read.

Some of the movies featured include "Scream", "Psycho", "Jaws", "Silence of the Lambs", "Poltergeist", "The Conjuring", "The Amityville Horror", "A Nightmare on Elm Street", "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", and more. I was quite surprised to learn that "Jaws" was based on some rather unusual real-life shark attacks that really did claim the lives of 4 people, including a child. We are also introduced to the various real-life serial killers, ranging from the more famous (e.g. Ted Bundy, Ed Gein, etc) to the obscure/unheard of (e.g. Karl Denke), who served as inspiration for many of the movies' villains. The most interesting read for me was "Nightmare on Elm St", as we learn it was based on a series of actual sudden and unexplained nocturnal deaths that affected, in particular, the Hmong people of Laos. (There is a scientific explanation for it - google "SUNDS".) I did not care for the chapters which talked about supposed exorcisms, hauntings and other purported supernatural phenomena, because none of them could be proven to be "true", and were all mostly stories told or retold by other people. The author, though, does make known his skepticism regarding all of these supposed "true" stories too. The book would have been much better if it had just cut out all the supernatural gunk and stuck to real-life events that could be proven 100% to have happened. Just because someone claims something happened to them in real life, doesn't mean it did. Many people are liars, especially when lying can get them money in the form of fame and lucrative book deals. Everything else was an enjoyable to go through. NB: The book contains massive spoilers for all the movies it features, so if you haven't yet watched them, be warned!

But alas I must disappoint you oh loyal followers, as this book is the epitome of mediocre and therefore deserves a corresponding review. The premise of this is a good one, all the gory murders behind your favourite scary films! What could possible go wrong?? Well for starters I have discovered that most of the murders used as inspiration for the films are pretty much the same, kill/assault/shoot/stab/cut up/bury and only the filmmakers have turned them into something memorable. After a while I was bored with the repetitive nature of the murders and the text book way they were laid out. No embellishments here gang, oh no! just facts and figures. After the 257th murder I was a little fatigued to say the least. The spooky inspirational stories just proved that the people involved in the ghostly goings on where probably lying and that the public are soppy and just really want ‘to believe’. There is nothing wrong with this book per-say, it starts off well with some Germans eating people but I just found it a bit lacklustre and as said before a bit text-booky in it’s presentation. If you’re into your horror films and your true crime then it is interesting, so maybe give it a go, my copies going spare if you want it.

I liked reading about serial killers, hauntings and shark attacks, but the writing wasn't the best. I also noticed there was a mistake about the movie Scream. It said that the opening scene was the murder of a babysitter, but if you watched the movie, you know that the girl is not a babysitter at all. Here is another quote that I liked: "Beginning at 10:30 p.m., the ensemble held three séances, with most in attendance reportedly experiencing noxious and highly disturbing phenomena. Among the guests' many vague pronouncements, Lorraine Warren was unequivocal: 'Whatever is here is, in my estimation, most definitely of a negative nature. It has nothing to do with anyone who had once walked the earth in human form. It is right from the bowels of the earth... It doesn't have to stay here, but I think it's a resting place.'

    Part of the appeal of reading horror, for me, is experiencing anxiety inducing material in a controlled environment. It’s like me telling my brain “hey remember all those killer clowns we read about? And how everything was okay in the end? Is there really anything to worry about, now that we’re being confronted with an actual clown?” Although, to be fair, I’d probably still freak out if I walked past a sewer drain and a white gloved hand waved at me.

Which I feel was well worth it. This book is like a combination of horror movie talk and true crime documentaries coming together and it’s awesome.

    This was a very interesting depiction of true crime/paranormal inspired horror movies. I thoroughly enjoyed, and was intrigued by the depth the author went in explaining the events that occurred and how they inspired horror movies. For example, Jaws, Annabelle, Scream, Amityville Horror, the Conjuring. I’m very glad I came across this great read.

    I enjoyed this book. I found the chapter on Jaws the most interesting, which surprised me as I chose the book to read about the Exorcist, Poltergeist and the Conjouring films. It started each chapter with a short rundown of each film, then went into the real life inspiration. A good read to pick up between longer books. Would recommend.

    True crime + horror stories are two of my major interests, so naturally I think this is amazing. I even consulted it many times when writing my essay (nonfiction dramatisations of horror/hauntings and their authenticity). Awesome if you’re a film fan, true crime consumer, or just want some ideas for creating horror stories.

    The real life stories behind our most famous horror films. Not for the faint of heart, as there is a lot of graphic detail that needed to be told so there’s an understanding of why an incident was adapted to the silver screen the way that it was, and all the parts left out to appeal to an audience. I recommend you read this around Halloween. Perfect to get you freaked out and paranoid in time for the festivities.

    If you’re a horror fan and/or read a lot of murdery nonfiction, you probably already know a lit of the info here. But it was interesting. And I wasn’t aware if some of the connections previously, so a fun read anyway.

    The best true crime book I’ve read so far. Massive fan of horror movies and true crime alike, I think this is a really great book if you’re interested in either or both of those genres.
