What is more human than the need to understand or the need to survive? From the disparate to the depraved, horror subverts our expectations and turns our known world into a chaotic series of events that undermine our control of the world around us. How does horror force us to see ourselves more clearly through the lens of fear? What role does psychology play in turning the screw on our own terror, and why is it so difficult to look away? As our world fills with plots and themes straight out of a horror novel, why are we drawn to the genre ever more strongly? And how can horror compete with real life without going over the top?
