Heavenly Creatures is a really terrifying story about a true story that happened quite a long time ago. This film wasn't so much scary but it was just a really psychological story to watch.

Pauline Parker and Juliet Hulme met in school during the 1950s. Instant best friends, they proceeded to spend every minute possible together, often writing about a fantasy land of their own invention. More and more estranged from their respective families, the two girls realise that they are extremely different from most other people, and agree to take any steps necessary to ensure that they are not seperated. The two families are increasingly concerned about the girls' friendship in a strictly moralistic era.

Birth Year Challenge [1994] (3 movies items)

"Director: Peter Jackson Stars: Melanie Lynskey, Kate Winslet, Sarah Peirse Biography | Crime | Drama "Only the best people fight against all obstacles in pursuit of happiness." Based on the true story of Juliet Hulme and Pauline Parker, two close friends who share a love of fantasy and literature, who conspire to kill Paulineโ€™s mother when she tries to end the girlsโ€™ intense and obsessive relationship. OK film, but I'm not planning to rewatch it."
