"As Malini Mohana, contributor to R.O.I Media and Psychology writes: “Skilled composers manipulate the emotion within a song by knowing what their audience’s expectations are, and controlling when those expectations will (and will not) be met. This successful manipulation is what elicits the chills that are part of any moving song.” Tie the appropriate film score to a horror film that encompasses a touch of romance will be sure to send you on a roller-coaster of emotions.

Here are 8 tracks featured in horror films encompassing romance..."

"As far back as the days of the sirens in Homer’s The Odyssey, horror fans have come to love and hate monsters. We gawk in awe at their brutish ways, but love when their stories fill our imaginations. With seemingly wicked nature, grotesque physical features, and violent demeanor harboring death and destruction to those who cross them, Thehouseofmonsters.com states that “The word monster is derived from the Latin word “monstrum”, which in [literal] terms means omen.” While most of us would be fighting with flight or fright, legendary director and creative mind Guillermo del Toro runs towards them — beckoning with open arms."

"Comedy and horror are cousins; they’re related. They both come from storytellers who want to specifically affect the audience and elicit specific reactions during the movie. –Jason Reitman"

"The discussion on how much the media impacts, influences, and alternates our way of life is not a new one. Since the beginning of television, scientists from various fields of study have argued over whether or not television is, or has been, beneficial to its youngest viewers – children. Starting this October the Syfy Channel released its latest show called Channel Zero, a horror drama which has brought this discussion back into the spotlight once more..." #articlesofhorror

"We all love folklore, and not just any kind of folklore, the type that makes us tremble simply by recalling a line. I remember listening to my mother tell my siblings and I stories which had been passed down generations, of ghost men on horses still clip-clopping at night through the streets of her hometown or the lore of a bleeding tree that, when cut, the ground shook and buildings threatened to fall. While these stories are truly imaginative, the horror that they portray feels real to the listener because it is very likely that the words are coming from someone they know, and may even look up to. What I find intriguing about folklore is that while it is a form of storytelling, it carries with it an immense burden – to identify with a people or group while simultaneously passing on an agreed upon belief. As The American Folklore Society states, “Every group with a sense of its own identity shares, as a central part of that identity, folk traditions — the things that people traditionally believe, do and make.” And so when we read or hear of a folklore that is foreboding, the weight of such stories is much heavier, filled with a history of belief stemmed from a people’s joint identity from so long ago.

Here are 10 examples of folklore from around the world which are dark in nature..."

"When The Exorcist was released in 1973, it changed the face of the horror genre forever. Hordes of fans from around the world watched in terror – a new kind of terror in which they had not experienced before.

"Ever since I was a kid, I would stalk the library shelves, my eyes scanning for a book in the Goosebumps series I hadn’t yet read. When I found it, I’d crack open its cover, my eyes falling too fast onto the first sentence. Easy, now. Time to get back to class. You’ll have plenty of time to devour this one later..." #articlesofhorror
