The true-story events that took place in the film are based on real accounts of the government's involvement with human experimentation. The director became interested in the history of government chemical experiments.

"Banshee Chapter" is mostly inspired the Lovecraft story "From Beyond" and MK Ultra, an LSD project that destroyed the lives of many subjects, according to

Patients of these CIA secret experiments have confirmed that the events did happen. The true events can also be confirmed by examining declassified government documents that contain directives to use human beings as subjects for biochemical agents, all for the purpose of controlling the mind.
