Chiller TV Presents Real Fear: The Truth Behind The Movies (2012)


Chiller TV was kind enough to send us information on their upcoming new reality special, Real Fear: The Truth Behind the Movies. Debuting this Sunday at 8P ET, the show will deal with some of the lesser known facts surrounding 4 horror films: The Amityville Horror, Poltergeist, Silent Hill, and The Mothman Prophecies.

I was a little surprised by the inclusion of the Silent Hill film as it was based on a video game by Konami but Real Fear site explains that the screenwriter, Roger Avary (Beowulf, Pulp Fiction), used the real life events of what happened in Centralia, PA during the early 60’s to mold his screenplay.

Here is an ad for the special:

From the Press Release: “On Sunday, March 11 @ 8pm, Chiller’s all-new special, Real Fear: The Truth Behind the Movies, will uncover the terrifying real-life stories that inspired some of the most popular horror films of all time! Paranormal investigator Katrina Weidman (Paranormal State), along with three of her colleagues, reveal the secrets behind four iconic movies: Poltergeist, The Amityville Horror, Silent Hill and The Mothman Prophecies.

The special also features exclusive eyewitness accounts from Lucille Herrmann, whose family made national attention in 1958, when they experienced unexplained poltergeist activity in their house in Seaford, NY (later influencing the popular film); and Christopher Lutz, the youngest member of the Amityville family who lived through the terrifying paranormal events in the infamous Long Island home.”

So if your local cable provider gives you the option of Chiller TV why not make some popcorn Sunday night, turn out all the lights, curl up on the couch and check it out?

  1. Yeah, I’m recording this show only to see the bit about Silent Hill. I consider myself a pretty good source when it comes to SH (I wrote one of the games after all!) and the Centralia, PA story is SO loose. I won’t give anything away, but I can tell you that Pyramid Head, sexy nurses and demonic children were not seen wandering the streets.

    Also, Chris Lutz apparently has to carry the torch of his father – who could never let his bogus tale die. How many times do we have to hear this lie about Amityville?

  2. Edward Gursslin says:

    I heard from a relative that my dad was giving a comment about the mines in Centralia and it showed his picture. How can I see this to see if it was really him.It was on a talk show about Silent Hill the movie .
