- What were your fear responses to and preference/non-preference of different types of fear-inducing media entertainment content (violence, mayhem, and horror) You can pick a particular movie/TV sow/novel to talk about to elicit more specific responses. For me, like slasher films the suspense/goriness of the movie sometimes is a lot for me so I often like to half cover my face as if that gives me a better sense of protection. For a movie like Halloween I’d be okay throughout the movie but once you hear the music come on you know something is about to happen I get prepared by covering my eyes if its too gory for me. Another fear response I guess would be phobia movies like Buried Alive. I hate those because being buried alive is a pretty big fear of mine so when I watch stuff like that I often think of what I would do in a situation like that and it freaks me out. After the movie is over I’m fine again I don’t continue to think about it. - What is your enjoyment or distaste for the genre and/or each of the subgenres- why do you enjoy or not enjoy violence/mayhem/horror? Does enjoyment correlate with your fear responses?

I love horror movies ever since I was forced to watch them as a kid my favorites have to be killer movies like the classics of Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees. psychological films that explore phobias and paranoia. I also like the paranormal movies but only the haunted house and possession movies (Amityville Horror, The Conjuring, Sinister). In the Gore & Disturbing side I only enjoy the torture movies like the Saw franchise. I do not prefer Monster movies as they don’t do much for me. I enjoy the movie World War Z which is a virus zombie movie but it doesn’t scare me, just intriguing.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
