Why do women watch, and enjoy watching, horror films, and why is this an important or useful question to ask?
The primary aims of the horror film are to frighten, shock, horrify, and disgust using a variety of visual and auditory leitmotifs and devices including reference to the supernatural, the abnormal, to mutilation, blood, gore, the infliction of pain, death, deformity, putrefaction, darkness, invasion, mutation, extreme instability, and the unknown
One of the reasons why women love horror movies is how they feel after the movie. This is called the excitation transfer process. when people watch frightening films, their heart rate, blood pressure and respiration increases and after the film is over, the physiological arousal lingers, That means that any positive emotions you experience any time you are with friends or times they eat chocolate, you will feel same after the movie, Instead of focusing on the fright you felt during the film, you recall having a great time. And you’ll want to come back for more.
Another reason is because Women usually appreciate the beauty of blood, and the power a woman finds in revenge. Horror inevitably offers different experiences for everyone, but for years, horror fandom has been tilting to favour women." Horror is a gateway for women to explore that which they cannot control.
Getting to see something that rarely get to occur is another thrilling reasons why women love horror movies, women tends to enjoy these stories because you can rarely get to see such event in a normal life experience, so such thus makes them to come back for more of the movies
