  8. 8. Horror? But Whyy? Horror films are designed to scare and disgust viewers with evil characters, plots and events that can range from realistic to completely supernatural, However, the horror genre has been around for years with classics from Dracula and Frankenstein to modern day versions such as The Hills Have Eyes and The Ring. Very simply, we do it because it is fun to make the unreal real. Great movies evoke emotions, and horror movies do it easier than most genres. Any member of our sane population will be captivated by the chase scene in Halloween, or by the shark swimming up to attack during Jaws. Fear is the quickest and most dependable emotion that movie makers can bring out in us. In addition to that, Everyone Loves A Good Scare!!!
