My fiancee and I just got back from the movies (Along Came Polly, very funny) and there was a trailer for Dawn of the Dead which sparked a debate (actually more of a fight) about why people like horror movies. I have always loved good horror movies and she can't sleep if I even tell her about one. Of course I could not come up with any good reasons for why I enjoy them so much, and she just kept saying, "would you pay someone $8 to actually do those things to you?" Of course I wouldn't, but I still love them just the same. The best I could do was to say that it must be the adrenaline rush you get, or just the chills, I dunno. I guess it is interesting to imagine what you might do in those situations, but still she was not satisfied. So, someone tell me why I like to be scared?
