Some say it’s the adrenaline rush.

Why do we read horror? Some say it’s the adrenaline rush, some say they like to see it happening to someone else, or to experience danger knowing it’s not really happening. But is it not really happening? There’s danger all around us, demons that exist in the real world, and inside our own selves. Horror is, in the end, a reflection of the darker side of humanity. I am writing horror currently because it satisfies my inner demons. I would like to think it purges them, but alas they’re too deeply embedded, products of my life experiences. I don’t know if I’ll be writing horror forever, but for now, my question is, why do you think people read horror?
