A Pair of Articles about Horror

I don’t often do this, but I came across a couple of interesting articles about horror on IGN that seemed share-worthy.

This one is about the strange, counter-intuitive appeal of horror movies:

I find this subject very interesting as a psychological study, and until I write my long-gestating article about how different types of horror fiction work on different people, this will have to be a placeholder.

This second article falls in line with that, and goes into how horror video games affect us differently than horror movies:

Limited appeal perhaps, but if you’re reading this site I’d wager you’re about halfway there.
