Book Description
“It might seem that there are enough things to be afraid of in real life. Poverty and pain, crime and corruption, oppression and depression, disease and death –all these lurk in the shadows, and sooner or later they pounce on everybody. And yet for authentic experience.” With these words Less Daniels shuts the door on “real life” and opens a shady path into the horrible, the terrible, the macabre, and the uncanny. Why do people like to be scares them? How do Hitchcock, Shakespeare, Poe transform our ordinary fears into “purely imaginary terrors?” What is the appeal on otherwise sensible people, of pulp fiction, horror films, haunted houses, and murder mysteries?
