Do you think that horror movies negatively influence society?


This is meant to be purposely open and interpreted however you like - do they cause crime? Nightmares? Insomnia? Lack of respect? What do you think?

    I know of people who love to dress up as blood drinking vampire, flesh eating zombies and even Jack the ripper types for Halloween and for Comicons and Horrorcons. Also dressing up for theatre runs of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. No violence.

    The news sometimes glorifies and impersonalizes death. When it does it does it more efficiently than any horror movies I have ever seen.

    There's nothing wrong with escapism. Both SF and Horror provide this for millions of people. A safety valve. There is such a thing as suspension of disbelief. Star Trek fans do it.
