How much of this movie was true??


Is this movie based on something that really happened, or it is just a fictional story? Is there a website or a book I can find about any real possible murders.

I'm of no help whatsoever here, but I suspect there's very little connection to the original story, just like Arkoff's "The Town That Dreaded Sundown" is largely fictionalized.

TTDS is not fictional...

I agree, Trekkie313, from what I have read, the movie is quite faithful to the actual events, except the ending, which was added for some dramatic closure due to the fact the case was never solved. I felt the ending was done quite well and kept within the fact of the case, without compromising them.
