Legal experts say that Warners & New Line did not necessarily vày anything wrong by allowing so heavily a fictionalized portrayal of the Warrens’ relationship. (At the kết thúc of each film, Warners includes a standard disclaimer reading, “Dialogue & certain events and characters contained in the film were created for the purposes of dramatization.”) “I vày think the public understands that ‘based on’ means that some liberties with storytelling have sầu been taken,” says attorney Lincoln Bandlow, who specializes in legal clearance for productions. “It’s a less enjoyable film if the ghost hunters are a bunch of assholes no one likes. You have sầu to have your protagonists be likable.” He adds that because these films are ghost stories và not strictly historical, audiences are even more likely lớn expect fictionalization: “There’s a giant sense of ‘Take some of this with a big grain of salt’ khổng lồ this whole project.”
