The second movie I chose for this week's theme was another one that I hadn't seen before and surprisingly had heard very little of before watching it. All I knew about it was that it was suppose to be one of the scariest films on Netflix in 2018. I don't believe the hype for movies like that because I don't really find a lot of stuff scary. But when I was talking to a friend about this theme and I was trying to decide on what movies to feature, she said I had to watch Veronica. She not only was it really scary but it was based on true events. So I decided that I would give it a chance. I watched the movie before I did any research on the story behind it.
When I decided on this theme for this week I did it for two reasons. The first reason was because I love researching the true stories behind "based on a true story" movies and books. I like seeing how many facts actually made it in the book or the script and how much is just Hollywood fluff that is written just to get you to spend some money. The second reason is because I wanted to have an excuse to finally watch the movie that I am writing about in this post. I have never seen The Exorcist.
Being overseas, I don't usually hear about movies until after they have been out for a while in theaters but one movie I have been hearing a lot about lately is 12 Strong.
