One of the most famous & highly appreciated horror movie, which is sure to be found in every best films list made in any part of the world without any doubt, was actually inspired from a less than half an hour episode of a famous Television Series as reportedly accepted by its director M. Night Shyamalan himself (stated at IMDB).
THE SIXTH SENSE was one of the very few horror films to get an OSCAR nomination for the Best Picture and was also included in the 100 Greatest Movies of All Time list made in 2007 by the American Film Institute.
But interestingly, the basic idea behind this well made film was inspired from one of the episodes of famous American Tele-Series ARE YOUR AFRAID OF THE DARK? titled, THE TALE OF THE DREAM GIRL directed by David Winning, which revolves around a loving brother and sister who later disclose the secret of the ghost.
Now if Shyamalan really revealed this well guarded secret about his most famous film till date then it was indeed a truly honest & a very brave revelation made by the director himself.

Thank U Sir!

Have u seen the latest horror movies The Conjuring and Sinister?

Both r truly chilling and one of the best horror movies to come from hollywood in recent times without any unnecessary abusive language and bloody gore especially The Conjuring.

Sinister was quite good but its climax was a letdown,at least for me.

Dear Raj,
The pleasure is all mine and yes I recently saw "The Conjuring" and liked it too.
In fact the latest 2 part article on "Indian Horror Movies" was written only after watching the movie in a packed theater as mentioned in the 2nd part.
However I will soon see Sinister too as recommended and get back.
