Reasons we like watching horror films

  • Horror films entertain us. They act as a means to fend off boredom.
  • The horror film is a way of unravelling evil. Ideas and myths like Frankenstein provide us with an explanation for human technological arrogance, where the man-made monster turns on its own creator.
  • They teach us to deal with our own anxiety. Horror films become a way to test our personal and collective limits in a safe environment that we can control by opting out at any point.
