8 Horror Movies Built On A Lie

The truth is overrated.

STX Entertainment

Films lie to us all the time. And considering we sit down to watch anything from dragon slaying adventures to planet hopping space dramas when it comes to settling on a story, the truth really isn't all that important if having a good time with a grand story is on the cards instead.

Whether that's a marketing campaign that buries the real movie so deep you have no idea what you're watching when you finally get to the cinema, or a plot that celebrates the endless possibilities of twisting a narrative to the point of no return - there are all sorts of mistruths that go to making an exciting movie along the way. It's true that horror in particular has capitalised on some of the best lies out there to make endlessly terrifying movies - and whilst not every film that bends the truth does so well, the result is always one well worth talking about.

From doomed simulations, to sequels that shouldn't exist, to straight up filmic trolling in its purest form - if horror movies could wear pants: these ones would definitely be on fire.
