There is constant speculation that The Lake Bodom Murders, Finland’s most famous unsolved murders, was the inspiration for the original Friday the 13th. The movie’s producers say no. Other than the fact that both involved camping teenagers and murder, there aren’t really any other similarities, but once a rumor like that gets started, there’s no stopping it.
Picture this: you’re laying in bed and you hear a sound. Is it just the house settling? Or is it a ghost? A demon? Ax murderer, zombie, serial killer, vampire… a CLOWN? Relax… it was just the cat coming up the stairs. The human mind is so creative that it can create a sense of impending doom out of an ordinary sound. But most times, the truth is, there’s nothing there.
