Jasmine Jackson English, D-15 Why We Crave Horror Movies Stephen King talks about why he thinks people crave horror movies. He begins by analyzing the shallow explanations, and then goes further to analyze the deeper, more between the lines reasons as to why horror movies are so compelling. Firstly and most obviously one reason King says people like horror movies is to prove oneself as brave or fearless "to show that we can, that we are not afraid, and that we can ride this roller coaster". Like roller coasters, horror movies keep one on their toes, always guessing and evoke an emotional or physical response (i.e screaming). So most obviously horror movies add an element of fun to one's life. However, King also says that horror movies appeal to the worst in us which is an interesting argument to make.
