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.
