My heart-rate starting going up. I had a bad feeling it was one of those movie trailers again. I had to quickly turn away from the TV.
It was a horror movie trailer that unexpectedly shows up right in the middle of CNN news.
These movie trailers are getting more terrifying everyday. It wasn't just the visuals, it was also the sound effects. It seems like someone went into a lot of trouble to evoke the absolute worse terror in the viewers.
I do not watch anything from that genre. Ever. I never understood the point. Now I can't seem to escape it on CNN. Why is it even allowed to be played on a non-entertainment/movie channel? Isn't this disturbing for children?
Why is there a genre like horror?
Is it entertainment? I feel an unbelievable level of anxiety just watching the trailers. My mind has this unique ability to replay the worst parts over and over again, just when I am ready to sleep.
I am a fan of facing your fears but this just feels like unnecessary stress to me.
I really would like to understand the motivation behind it.
