The Psychology Behind Why We Love Horror #shorts

Horror is one of the most popular fiction genres today. Big names like “It”, “Saw”, and “The Last of Us” prove over and over that many people love to be scared for entertainment. This might raise the question, what makes creepy clowns, massive sharks, and brain-eating zombies such popular topics in the world of fiction? In this video, we want to explore the psychology of horror and what draws people to enjoy being scared or terrified.

This is a special project we worked on as well. Hope you enjoy it.
