In a world where horrific atrocities are committed on a daily basis is it so far fetched to believe that creatures, supernatural phenomenon or even alien activity does not exist
You read a story that is very far fetched, but it scares the pants off you nonetheless……and then you find out it is fiction and although the fear it created remains with you for a short time, a certain amount of relief is present from the fact that you know it is fiction.
The reality of horror…….what does that mean exactly?
Fact and fiction within horror, are the two really that different?
Then……you read another story that is similar in nature, it also scares the pants off you, but this time you find out that the story is fact. This time the fear remains with you but with no sigh of relief.
When a great mind creates a fantastic new horror plot, maybe they are creating it from something real, something buried deep in their sub-conscious from a story they once heard or read, and now those memories are resurfacing in the form of a new horror book or film.
Now what they read or heard could have been from someone else’s fiction creation and so on and so on, but at what point did that fiction come from factual events.
At what point did all these horror creations we see around us in films and books today as fictional creations actually maybe exist, and still exist hidden around us in the world today?
'The World of Horror' fact of fiction, will be dedicated to a mixture of fictional stories created from the depths of the mind and researched factual stories that have occurred throughout the years.
See if you can pick out factual stories from fictional creations before getting to the end of each one. The reality of how close the two are is a horror story in itself!
All factual stories have had names/detailed places removed and have been written very different to how they are recorded in reports and research - but the facts have been left in and not exaggerated.
Play the Fact or fiction choice game at the end of each one!
