Horror films tap into our primal fears, such as fear of being attacked and the fear of being eaten. For some,
the thrill of a Hollywood scare could serve as a practice run for the real thing. How many times times have you watched a scary movie and screamed at the tv set ” don’t go in the house” or “don’t answer the door” ? I think of horror movies as a mental rehearsal if a bad guy or a ghost came walking through my door when I was not prepared for his arrival. – Maryann Morgan

    English author Mary Shelley. Frankenstein tells the story of Victor Frankenstein, a young scientist who creates a sapient creature in an unorthodox scientific experiment. Shelley described Frankenstein’s monster as an 8-foot-tall, hideously ugly creation, with translucent yellowish skin pulled so taut over the body that it “barely disguised the workings of the arteries and muscles underneath,” watery, glowing eyes, flowing black hair, black lips, and prominent white teeth.

    The figure was originally created by Kevin Williamson. You might not know that “Scream’s” Ghostface killer is based off the Gainesville Ripper, a real serial killer named Dany Rolling, who murdered five co-eds and three others between 1989 and 1990. Knowing he was a real killer makes him scarier to me!
