Horror Story and Human Psychology

Assalamualaikum wbt.

Another day at office and another day to be scolded by bos (not that hard, but full of sarcasm & bit of grunge from previous UNO match where I beat him) because me watching horror movies at office *whilst doin work lah*.

I am a fan of Silent Horror comic strips, read more [here] 

Masa lipat-lipat baju begitu, the office will be kind of too *krik2*, jadi beta dengan hati keboringan ini buka lah cerita The Conjuring 2 – stream online *skrg xtau kena marah sebab stream atau sbb tgk crita hantu*. Maybe sebab crita hantu coz sebelum ni memang suka pasang Misteri Jam 12 – podcast cerita seram diceritakan di radio kat Singapore.

I’m enjoying horror story that much but some of people does not. So why is that happen? Am I the black sheep of the family? Or am I born with superpower? Well I’m conducting mini *very very mini* research on this matters. In order to prove my super-called-power.

The first is tension – created through mystery, suspense, gore, terror, or shock. This is pretty straight forward elements of horror, the craft and technique of filmmaking.The second factor is relevance. In order for a horror film to be seen, it has to be relevant to potential viewers. This relevance can take the form of universal relevance – capturing the universal fear of things like death and the unknown, it can take on cultural relevance dealing with societal issues. Audiences can find subgroup relevance – groups like teenagers which many horror films are about. Lastly, there’s personal relevance – either in a way that identifies with the protagonist or in a way that condemns the antagonists or victims to their ultimate fate.The last factor, which may be the most counter intuitive is unrealism. Despite the graphic nature of recent horror films, we all know at some level that what we are watching is not real. Haidt, McCauley and Rozin conducted research on disgust, showing students in 1994 a series of gruesome documentary videos… few could make it to the end – and yet these same students would pay to see even worse acts conducted on a movie screen. Why? Perhaps its because when we walk into a theater we know what we’re seeing on screen is fabricated reality. Movies are edited from multiple camera angles with soundtracks and sometimes horror is tempered and made palatable with black humor – a sly wink that what you’re seeing on screen isn’t real. This also explains why we all remember that scary movie we saw when we were way too young but looks hokey now. Children have a harder time separating reality and fiction especially when its on a movie screen.

Terlalu lama suka melihat, mendengar dan bermain game hantu, hati boleh juga jadi kering. Melihat cerita seram sekarang ni pun ndak sudah tertakut takut unless when in movie I have this habits to critique a lil bit loud.
But after all, I thought it just a kind of way to release tension. nothing more. I dont really like the kind of slaughtered human / animal kind of horror film, tho in games *because i know its animation, plus animal are so adorable to kill, unless im hungry* i really kill animals for the sake of continue living (this happens in Minecraft).
Or maybe my logical thinking are more relevant to horror story rather than drama-romantik-melayu kat televisyen sekarang ni. :3

I manage to visit a bookXcess outlet on Fahreinheit (after accidently mistook their warehouse an outlet 😅😅😅). And i'm both excited and amaze on how low all the books prices was. Due to my tight budget Im very glad to have some new books haul to bring back to KK and living with the most relaxing time of my life - reading.

  • I need to admit that I found Donatella perspective was way too adventerous compared to Scarlett. 😇 #legendary #stephaniegarber .

I keep forgetting about whom is whom from Caraval and I feel a little bit lost learning where Dante comes from 😂 Hence I put Caraval on my next list just to recap what actually happen. .

As the lovey dovey thing I prefer Tella dilemma in choosing love rather than Scar. .

Q: #teamTella or #teamScar?
  • Akhirnya aku membaca buku ini dipandu emosi diluar kewarasan. 
Rare species yang amat, one of its kind. Never in my life I stumble into this kind of reading. .

Tak tahu nak nangis atau nak ketawa. 😂
