People are devouring horrors and suspense content. The audience likes binge-watching all kinds of series. Suspense series included. However, there are viewers who are left with the sour feeling of discomfort, while watching and experiencing the fear and everything beyond. So, why do majority of people do it?
According to trend reports and predictions for 2019, people will be watching terrifying content more than ever before. We cannot overlook the fact that tendencies like this one reflect the world we all live in. We have seen extreme suspense movies winning highest ratings ever. Appears people like to get scared. Or, possibly, like to confront their wildest nightmares, at least on screen, in order to conquer them and liberate their minds, which is a nice thought.
Psychological Games & Brain Chemistry
The number of Americans using streaming platforms was 1 in 4, almost two years ago. This number is on the rise today. It is interesting that many adult viewers prefer disguised horror. The anticipation. The psychological games played by the main characters are told in deep, serene, seductive voices of Idris Elba or Benedict Cumberbatch, for example. Or am I getting too carried away here? Authority of on-screen characters depends mainly on their skills. Viewer can be blown away if the actor is skillful and will believe whatever the story he tells. Willingly, viewers put themselves through the main character‘s ups and downs, and try to identify with him. It appears our brains are perfectly adjusted machines that can evaluate the situation and then tell us if we should run or fight, or simply stay still.
The terrifying effect is reinforced with corresponding music. It is interesting to know that one type of music causes the same effect in different cultures and backgrounds. Remember the music from John Carpenter’s “Halloween” or the “Exorcist’s” Tubular Bells? Well, these appear to be less terrifying than ambient humming in horror movies. Sounds can play with our minds more than we think. Parts of our brain react to sounds, sending the fear warning before we even become aware of the sound itself.
And then there is a well-known adrenaline rush. Higher amounts of endorphin and dopamine are released in a state of fear. This causes the “euphoria-like” state and when viewers are faced with the realization that they are safe, as not directly faced with on-screen villains, they experience gratitude, relief, and the fear momentarily draws back.
I think we can all agree that curiosity could be the ultimate reason we are drowning to the “dark side”. Unknown is the magnet for some people. It can be the force that puts us in danger, but it can also be the force that pushes you forward, towards new opportunities and knowledge.
