Scarecrow Video Event- The Psychology of Horror: Why We Love Scary Movies

NosferatuThe Psychology of Horror: Why We Love Scary Movies

Saturday, October 25th, 7PM  Scarecrow Video 5030 Roosevelt Way NE, Seattle  98105

I’m sure I’m not alone in questioning my attachment to horror films (which I do in earnest each October.)  Why do I persist in subjecting myself to a genre that at times robs of me of sleep, gives me nightmares, makes me wary of everyday objects and sometimes causes me to lose feeling in my extremities?  I don’t have all the answers but I think I have a few and so does my friend and colleague, Stacey Weber.  What better place for us to explore this topic in-depth but at our local film archive/video store, Scarecrow Video?  The talk will be followed by a Q&A which will be followed at 8:30PM by a screening of “The Ring.”  (The U.S. version.)  Click on their link above for more information on Scarecrow Video, their events and store location.  We hope to see you there!
