WHY WE LOVE SPOOKY SCARY MOVIES
Are you a thrill seeker? Do you love the feeling of your palms sweating, heart racing, and adrenaline peaking?
Well, you’re an ideal candidate for being a Horror film lover.
The rest of us, though, don’t always deal so well with horror and gore. So why do we still love watching them, especially around this time of year?
We spoke with Dr Carol Newall, a senior lecturer in Childhood Development and a clinic psychologist at Macquarie University to find out more about the science behind the horror genre, and how it can actually be good for us.
