They heard voices during the day, witnessed various cold spots inside the home and even saw a green, slime-like substance oozing out from the walls. Though the researchers strongly defy the authenticity of the story yet the film made on it is quite frightening.
2) The Entity:
This film might appear to be a most absurd horror story but it tells the real life story of a single mother called Carla Moran with three children, who are plagued by a supernatural entity that abuses and rapes her repeatedly.
