Top 10 Horrific Endings in Horror Films

Welcome to Celebsinfos, where we’re counting down the Top 10 Horror Movies That Don’t Have the Real Horrific Ending. For this list, we’ll look at scary movies that were either based on or inspired by genuine occurrences but left out critical elements that would have made the spectator feel much worse. Because we’ll be talking about the endings of these films, consider this a spoiler alert.

#10: “The Hills Have Eyes” (1977)

No, a family of cannibals never hid in the Nevada desert and ambushed innocent tourists. We don’t believe so, at least not in our opinion. Wes Craven, the writer-director of “The Hills Have Eyes,” did, however, take a lot of the tale from Sawney Bean’s folklore. Bean, according to legend, was a cannibal who lived in a secret cave with his wife Agnes in 16th or 17th century Scotland.

Over time, the two are said to have had over three dozen children and grandkids, all of whom would prowl the streets at night, preying on unsuspecting bystanders. Despite the fact that many people disbelieve the Beans existed, we don’t believe the Jupiter clan in the film ate over 1,000 individuals like the Beans allegedly did.

#9: “The Haunting in Connecticut” (2009)

Let us put a damper on things for anyone who enjoys Ed and Lorraine Warren’s antics in the “Conjuring” flicks. Despite the fact that the paranormal investigators do not appear in this film, they did investigate the allegedly haunted former mortuary in real life and gave it the old seal of approval after exorcising the supernatural forces. Many have questioned them afterwards, with sceptic Benjamin Radford claiming that Ed Warren instructed Ray Garton, the original book’s author, to “make it up and make it scary.”

Even more authors have apparently come forward since Ed’s death in 2006, alleging he told them similar things about other cases. Nothing like the horrors of human deception to destroy a good film.

#8: “Snowtown” (2011)     

You wouldn’t expect a gruesome film like “Snowtown” to be devoid of gore, and you’d be mostly correct. However, there were far-reaching consequences to this particular murder spree that most people are unaware of. Despite the fact that the most of the bodies were discovered near Snowtown, Australia, only one of the twelve victims was murdered there. However, the “Snowtown murders” became the most well-known aspect of the crime spree.

Snowtown had a temporary economic boost from morbidly curious tourists when all of this was revealed in 1999, but has since been “forever stigmatised,” according to “The Age” newspaper. The situation became so terrible that the town pondered changing its name, but this has yet to happen.

#7: “The Amityville Horror” (2005)    

The Amityville case, which the Warrens investigated in real life, is possibly the most renowned – or should we say infamous – in history, given to the scores of films that have been made about it. Though many people are aware that the Lutz family allegedly fled their Ocean Avenue house in 1976 for fear of their life, almost as many are also aware that their allegations have been widely challenged, to the point that the aftermath is almost as fascinating as the hauntings themselves.

The book’s release sparked a media frenzy, with many accusing the Lutzes of being frauds and the family launching various lawsuits in retaliation. We’ll forgive the 1979 film for being so recent, but the 2005 remake could have explored this hitherto unexplored aspect.

#6: “Scream” (1996)

Although the “Scream” films aren’t based on true occurrences, they were inspired by one. Danny Rolling, a serial killer, was charged in 1991 with five killings committed the previous year in Gainesville, Florida. Despite the fact that Ghostface kills five people in the first “Scream” film, Rolling’s actions were far more terrible. Rolling forcibly entered the houses of his college-age victims over the period of four days, most of whom were sleeping.

He then carried out his evil crimes, treating his female victims with even more brutality than his male victims. Despite the fact that every “Scream” film has several survivors, none of them lived to recount the tale with Rolling, who was executed in 2006.

#5: “Backcountry” (2014)

A couple’s camping trip becomes dangerous in “Backcountry,” when they are stalked and attacked by a fierce black bear. Jen finds her way to their canoe after her lover Alex is devoured alive and rows her way to help as the movie closes. The film is mainly faithful to the true storey that inspired it, but there are a few important deviations.

In 2005, Mark Jordan was able to defend his wife Jacqueline Perry from a bear in Ontario, Canada. Jordan eventually got them on the river and located others, but Perry died as a result of her injuries before she could be treated properly. Imagine the anguish of being so near to being sufficiently rescued, even if the movie is more brutal.

#4: “The Town That Dreaded Sundown” (1976)

“The Town That Dreaded Sundown,” released in 1976, is one of the first slasher films, depicting the “Moonlight Murders” in Texarkana in 1946. Though the assailant, called the “Phantom Killer,” was never apprehended, the film does leave out the possibility of a murder. Earl McSpadden’s body was discovered shortly after the last official murder, after being struck by a train, although McSpadden was already dead, leading many to believe it was the Phantom’s act.


Despite the fact that the original “Community That Dreaded Sundown” skipped this, the 2014 meta sequel appears to repurpose McSpadden as Hank McCreedy, whose grandson adopts the Phantom image in an attempt to get the town to recognise his family’s sorrow.

#3: “The Haunting of Sharon Tate” (2019)

Almost everyone is familiar with the tragic death of actress Sharon Tate. If they don’t, they’ve probably certainly heard of Charles Manson. Manson’s followers arrived at Tate’s house in August 1969 and murdered everyone there, including the pregnant Tate. Despite the fact that “The Haunting of Sharon Tate” depicts the actual killings in a nightmare sequence early in the film, the true conclusion has the victims turn the tables on their oppressors.

When all is said and done, Sharon and her companions discover they did not survive the attack, and what they saw was only an alternate reality of what may have happened. Surprisingly, this wasn’t the only 2019 film to reframe the events; “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” did so much more effectively.

#2: “My Friend Dahmer” (2017) 

“My Friend Dahmer” doesn’t go as far as the pure horror that serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer became renowned for, but it’s not without its frightening moments. The film, which is based on John “Derf” Backderf’s graphic novel of the same name, tells the storey of Derf’s connection with young Jeffrey during their high school years.

A number of red signs about Jeffrey’s actions go mostly undetected throughout the film, and the film closes with him picking up a hitchhiker named Steven Hicks, who was Dahmer’s first real-life victim. Obviously, the film was never intended to be about the killings, instead focusing on developing psychopathy. There are also other biopics that delve deeper into the details.

#1: “The Exorcism of Emily Rose” (2005)

“The Exorcism of Emily Rose,” half demonic possession film, part courtroom drama, depicts the storey of a college girl who dies following a failed exorcism and the priest’s subsequent trial for negligent homicide. Despite claiming to be about a real lady named Emily Rose, the film was based on the narrative of Anneliese Michel, a German woman.

Michel supposedly had an astonishing sixty-seven exorcisms over the course of ten months before succumbing to hunger, but Emily only has a single exorcism performed on her in the film – hence the singularity in the title. We understand why the film would want to keep things simple, but truth is weirder than fiction.
