We all fear from horror but we all love to see horror films. While watching we freak out & Whenever we are getting freaked out over a horror movie, we handle our fear by reminding ourselves that none of it is real. We remind ourselves that there is no ghost or malicious entity latched on to the movie, and it’s all a product of carefully constructed script, camera angles, music, that plays on our psyche to freak us out. This is just a movie nothing is real at all.
Who doesn’t love a good horror flick? I, for one, relish the thrill and suspense that keeps me at the edge of my seat until the screen fades to black. But what I love even better, is diving deep into the real life incidents that these onscreen horrors were based on. Some of these are even scarier than the actual film because well, they actually happened in real life.
