First off the movie is from the very early 70's and is based on Ingmar Bergman's film The Virgin Spring. Never recall it based on a true story. Wes Craven's other films A Nightmare on Elm Street and The Hills Have Eyes are very loosely based a small nuggets of truth. Elm Street was inspired by a couple of people suffering from horrific nightmares and eventually dying from them. The latter is based on either a real event or folklore that happened in the 16th or 17th century in England IIRC.
