But t’s rarely to meet a person who will state "horror" as their primary genre of choice. Horror is a genre that defies the conventional rules of movie-watching.

Victor’s curiosity led him to creating the monster. There weren’t many people who accepted the idea of galvanism and things of the like in Frankenstein’s day. “On this occasion a man of great research in natural philosophy was with us, and, excited by this catastrophe, he entered on the explanation of a theory which he had formed on the subject of electricity and galvanism.” (Shelley, page 37). This quote illustrates that Victor is becoming more involved and studying more about creating life. I can’t imagine being seventeen or eighteen and thinking about how to bring something you have created from the dead.
Certain aspects of the sixth novel frightened people even more because they depicted acts of terrorism from the Death Eaters in real-world cities. “Rowling’s books serve as a window to the world, illuminating current events in full detail. One needs to look no further than chapter one in ‘The Half-Blood Prince’ to discover reports of widespread terror in London” (Carpenter). The violence was escaping the fictitious world of Harry Potter and becoming too much of a reality for some people to handle. Scared parents did not want their children to
The context in which both novel and the play was written was a time of conflict between science and religion, the scientific revelation opposed the belief that God was the earth’s creator. The harmony between science and faith broke down and the supernatural themes in both Macbeth and Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde struck further fear to the people in society while they were vulnerable. This fear was linked with Victorian decorum, the way people presented themselves for other people’s judgement and perception was different to how they acted behind closed doors; it was a secret world of unsuspected lies and deception. Doctor Jekyll was a ‘respectable doctor’ and had earnt the trust and friendships but his mind was torn between right and wrong and his intrigue in new science brought out the other side to his personality in a literal and supernatural form. This is in the same way that Macbeth, ‘a valiant cousin’, who had the respect of the King, became driven by ambition which blurred the path of righteousness behind people’s backs.
What makes disorders from the mind different is that they affect how people behave. Ancient people believed that mental illness or abnormal behavior was the result of someone being “possessed” by evil spirits. Treatment, if any, came in the form of amulets or charms, or more drastically, by drilling holes into the head so those spirits could escape. In the middle ages, the church saw mental illness or abnormal behaviors as a sign of the devil at work, a belief that led to the persecution of people as witches. Doctors however, viewed as unbalance in the four humors (fluids believed to make up the body).
Shakespeare’s contemporaries believed in the supernatural very strongly and a majority of them were frightened of it, including the king of that time, King James I of England. In Shakespeare's time, many people were superstitious; they believed that that their lives were strongly influenced, if not dictated by fate. They also thought that the world was full of supernatural creatures, such as witches, ghosts, and many other such beings. Shakespeare incorporated these aspects of belief in his play Macbeth. The witches, although accurately predicting what would occur, i.e., Macbeth would be king, they did not specify how their prophecies would be realized.
Why Do We Crave Horror Films? We all have a dark side and demons we have to feed. People crave horror to fulfill the thrill they want when their lives are dull. On the other hand, is it because people have to escape from the bad emotions we suppress. In Stephen Kings essay “Why We Crave Horror Films” He claims we are all mentally ill. And he is correct.
Censorship is also ridiculous because most classic novels involve questionable language, or somewhat violent material. If the library removes these books, the patrons under eighteen lose the opportunity to learn valuable lessons from them. A last reason that censorship is unbelievable is patrons over eighteen will most likely want to check out the books that are in question to be removed. If the town council decides to remove them, many patrons will become enraged. Deciding if a library patron under eighteen should be aloud to read a questionable book is the decision of the patron and their parents.
