As human beings we’re wired to search for answers and try to
find meaning in the most mysterious circumstances. As Internet users we’re
wired to click through a million posts a day, each one scaring the crap out of
us with a haunting story of a creepy unsolved mystery. When you put those two things together it's easy to be a little overwhelmed.
The solution to this feeling is simple: Hollywood must adapt our viral unsolved mystery obsessions into films. That way we can perhaps see those compelling stories told in a way that helps explain them. Or at least that terrifies everyone suitably, anyway.
Whether they’re created as Guillermo
Del Toro gothic horrors, David Fincher-esque prestige thrillers, or a Paul
Greengrass style shaky-cam conspiracy, these real-life, unsolved mysteries are ready
for their moment in the spotlight. They’re also ready to creep under your skin
and make you crawl into bed with a flashlight.
Lock the doors, call the guy you know who brags about his questionable
connection to Hollywood, and find out which horrific mysteries should be coming to a theatre near you…
