Psycho, The Exorcist and The Silence of the Lambs are some of the most terrifying horror movies ever put on screen but the shocking reality is these movies were inspired by actual events. Behind the Screams presents these iconic images of horror - a young boy gripped by demonic possession, an axe-murderer chasing a teen through the woods - and pulls back the curtain to reveal the real story. From serial killers to documented paranormal encounters, truth is sometimes stranger than fiction and each one-hour episode examines the hair-raising true incidents that sparked some of the most gripping big screen stories.
In 1970s Chicago, teenage boys are going missing by the dozen. But investigators are overlooking an important clue – all the missing boys share a connection with an upstanding community member who's leading a double-life. He's a power hungry sadist...that can't get enough. You might think this is the plot from a horror film, but it's all terrifyingly true. This is the original clown-faced killer – the monster that inspired so many evil, clown-faced villains. This is the Behind the Screams account of serial killer John Wayne Gacy.
