Have you ever asked yourself the question: “Why am I such a big fan of horror movies?”

Is it because you enjoy being scared? Maybe a fan of the gruesome storylines? We wanted to find out…

According to a study conducted by Psychological Science, people that have a love for horror films actually find pleasure in being scared. In fact, researchers believe that horror fans get easily aroused when watching scary movies because of the increase in their pulse, and a similar release of hormones in the brain that happens when you fall in love.

Weird, right?!
