There’s something about horror that speaks directly and instinctively to the human animal. Millions of years of evolutionary psychology have ingrained in our minds certain fear triggers – a survival instinct –
This may explain the shape of our movie monsters: creatures with sharp teeth or snake like appearance. The fear of being eaten alive also explains the cannibalistic traits of human monsters like Dracula and Dr. Hannibal Lecter.
Before we try to explain the psychological attraction to horror lets try to establish what the allure of horror is. The following are horror movies hitting the big screen 2016.
The Forest, which is set in the Aokigahara forest at the base of Mt. Fuji, tells the story of a young American woman who goes in search of her twin sister, who has mysteriously disappeared.
The Witch; New England in the 1630s: William and Katherine lead a devout Christian life with five children, homesteading on the edge of an impassable wilderness. When their newborn son vanishes and crops fail, the family turns on one another.
What I’m really looking forward to is a new picture from Joe Ciminera called , “Humpty Dumpty; "A dark story about a boy who is treated horribly in a small town in a place that is between here and the supernatural. Once you enter the town you never age and you can never leave. Crowd funding has started so if its like anyone of Ciminera’s other 5 features he has done, this one is sure to scare you.
