Horror Movies. It seems like there are more in theaters than ever before. This year, come the Halloween season, folks will turn scaring themselves on purpose into a pastime--and the ritual of going to see a terrifying horror movie is just part of the fun. Itâ€™s no accident that filmmakers choose the fall months to release some of the most anticipated horror films of the year because let's face it, horror movies and Halloween go hand in hand.
Horror movies, like many other Halloween scares and thrills, can be exhilarating for many reasons. When a person gets intentionally scared in an otherwise safe environment, the individual can go ahead and enjoy the feeling of the adrenaline rush produced by the fear. This enjoyment can happen because the person knows on some level that there is no real threat to their safety. The blood pressure may rise, the heart rate may increase, and palms may sweat--but this all becomes part of the fun when a person realizes that everything is okay. Any adrenaline junkie will tell you, an experience of controlled fear can be downright exhilarating!
