Must-watch movies on notorious personalities of all time

If you are a fan of those spine-chilling stories, then this list is made for you!

Films, be it any genre, have always been able to entertain one and all. But no doubt that thriller films or films based on real-life people are way more than any other genre. Several people wait to watch movies about notorious personalities who have been famous in the media or been missing for years. It is the thrill while watching or the excitement to know that this happened years back which makes us want to watch these films repeatedly. So let us list out a few of the best movies based on notorious personalities of all time:

Zodiac (2007)

Based on the Zodiac Killer, this film is based on one of the most prolific cases of America of all time. The Zodiac killer had several victims and was widely searched by the police of several nations. Unfortunately, until 2021, the actual person behind this killer was identified, only to be too late! These things apart, this film is gripping and has all the twists and turns you would expect from such a film!

The Silence of the Lambs (2013)

Any fan of true crime or thriller films will accept that this is an iconic film to watch. No matter which year you watch this, it will keep you gripped to your seats. The character of Buffalo Bill was inspired by the true story of Ed Gein: an American guy who was known and wanted for his extremely horrible crimes. This movie has, however, taken inspiration from several other notorious people as well.

Badlands (1973)

Don’t think that such films have been made only in recent years. This film is a cult classic. Created in 1973, this film still manages to secure the top 10 positions in several lists about best true-crime based films. Filmmaker Terrence Malick’s first film is about a runaway couple who commits some horrible crimes. But, trust us, this film is compelling to watch!

The Bling Ring (2013)

This may differ from the other films on this list but is based on a fascinating story. Starring Emma Watson, it is based on a series of robberies that targeted Hollywood celebrities! Sound exciting, right? This should be a must-watch for the direction and also the storyline.
