Your Mind on Horror

I thought I should share this. The way our mind works when we are experiencing horror intrigues me.

Apparently, the reason we like horror is adrenaline. The sudden feeling of danger excites some of us. This goes on into a cycle of compulsion.

I’ d like to believe that people with more destructive personalities tend to enjoy horror a bit more. Theres a pleasure in death similar to sex. And death to us is equal to danger. Just a thought…

So..in conclusion, I guess we are attracted to horror because theres a sinister part inside our minds that loves to me brought to life by different stimulus, wether it’s a movie, a novel, a creepy-pasta, or even videogames.

I will try to cover different aspects of this genre in my future posts. Thank you for reading me.

  1. I don’t like the horror genre. Jason, Freddie and Chuckie are just too savage. But I do like the old Frankenstein, Dracula and Werewolf stuff of old. Just finished Mortal Fear by Greg Iles. Sex, grotesque, internet tech and hunt murder stuff. Really intense. First of his novels I’ve read. Intend to buy every novel he’s written. Thanks for your recent visit to my blog.
