11 True Crime Movies That Will Chill You to the Bone
Telling yourself “it’s only a movie,” won’t work with these terrifying true crime films. Lock the doors and prepare for chills.
Terence Malick’s chilling masterpiece is loosely based on Charlie Starkweather’s murderous spree across Nebraska and Wyoming in the late 1950s. Starkweather was a teenager at the time and the girlfriend he took along with him was just 14. In Badlands, the outlaw couple are played by Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek. The lush Midwestern heartland scenery is a harsh contrast to the horror of the crimes in this haunting film about violence with a bizarre love story at the center.
