Why do horror movies fascinate us so much?

Ever wonder why we love horror movies so much? I have. Is it that we cannot help but put ourselves in the place of the pursued, haunted, terrorized victim? Is it because even though we have our civilized society we know that a terrified animal still lurks deep inside us? Do we love scary movies just because we are morbidly curious to see what so much pain, dismemberment, and death look like? Do some of us love horror movies because we wish to be the one causing all the fear and torment? We are, after all, just a hop, skip, and jump away from our own beastly backgrounds. Not so long ago we were carrying clubs, killing for our food and living in caves. For that matter we still kill for our food and live in houses built much like caves. Maybe its not really the victim we root for in the horror movies, maybe its the thrill of the chase we like. Heheheheeeee…..
