I recently tried to read a horror novel by Bentley Little. What made me unable to continue reading was the gross-out factor rather than fear, but I’ve definitely been afraid while reading books or watching movies.
What books or movies have scared you? Is it always a specific kind of scare, like serial killers or aliens? And what are we actually afraid of when we get scared by entertainment?
My husband says he’s never really been scared by a book or movie, though I know he was getting pretty jumpy when we were watching “The Others” in a dark room.
