** ''The Apparition'' was an earlier film even more loosely inspired by the Phillip Experiment - about all it has in common with the experiment is that it involves people in a college trying to summon a spirit as part of an experiment.

* ''The Quiet Ones'' was inspired by [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philip_experiment the "Phillip Experiment"]], an experiment where a group of parapsychologists attempted to create an artificial poltergeist through expectation of human will. The characters were completely fictional, the specifics of the experiment weren't quite the same, and the results it did produce weren't as dramatic as what's depicted in the film.

* [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] in ''Film/EyesWideShut'': while the ending credits state that the film was "inspired" by an Alfred Schnitzler's novella, it is in fact a rather faithful adaptation, down to the key pieces of dialogue.
* The opening credits for a Soviet film ''The New Adventures of Captain Vrungel'' state: "Screenplay by Alexander Khmelik, based on the memories of the novel by A. Nesterov".

* In June 1997, Lela and Raymond Howard of Salado, TX, decided to set off for a festival in nearby Temple, despite Lela's Alzheimer's and Raymond recovering from brain surgery, and were found two weeks later, dead, at the bottom of a ravine near Hot Springs, AR--which is more or less in the same direction from Salado as Temple but is ''over 22.5 times further away''. Tony Scalzo, frontman of a group called Fastball, read journalistic articles about this and was inspired to write "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0wfu3tOrtQ The Way]]", which is a considerably more romanticized version of events--though the line "they'll never get old and gray" might imply that it still ends in death, just a considerably happier one.
