Boo? Halloween is really all about having fun.
Why do some people like having the living daylights scared out of them? If you have just started noticing pop-up zombies and witches or a full graveyard in your neighbors garden, then you are not alone. Do you have co-workers that have planted surprise spiders, skeletons and bats around the office? Most of us just think of it as harmless fun, some get a little scared, and others simply dread this time of the year. Not me! But Halloween means that everything is cute Autumnal colors, it’s cold, there are tons of horror movies on TV, pumpkin lattes, horror fests so you just need to embrace Halloween-town and chill!
There are lots of people who are on the lookout for thrills this time of the year. And many have their own reasons for wanting to be scared stiff.
Peoples experience of a haunted house can be either fun or terrifying. They can be seen as a fear-seeking thrill or even some sort of self-fortification, testing ourselves to see how scared we can get.
Horror Film Fests
Watching horror films can be a mix of having fun and sometimes being slightly scared. Going to Horror fests and being among other horror film enthusiasts is immersing yourself in a scary moment when it happens unexpectedly on screen, and you can suspend your disbelief in that moment and it’s almost like a loss of control that can feel really good. Or perhaps it just depends on how your brain was coded to handle fear and anxiety.
