The Meaning of Horror by Alana Melos 21, Jun

   A typical night might find me in front of the television watching a movie with my husband. If I got to pick the movies all the time, they’d be horror movies. While my husband has nothing against them, he gets tired of watching the “same old thing” all the time. (His words, not mine.) Not me, though. I could watch horror every night of the week and then some. I love the effects, the suspense, the tension (no matter how manufactured it is), and the experience as a whole. I love not knowing what I’m in for every time I choose a new movie. I love investigating the new mythos a horror movie presents to me, still operating within a framework we all understand, but putting its own spin on it. But I never used to.
