Recently I've realised that becoming a horror addict or watching a lot of horror films, has prevented me from getting nightmares for about a solid year now. It would make a lot of sense if this concept worked for the majority of horror addicts but I have no real evidence to prove my point. Nightmares come from fears, and after watching a horror film people generally do have nightmares because they fear that the antagonist in the film will jump out and get them or something along those lines. Especially if it's a true story because that makes you think it could actually happen. Or if the film relates to an item in your household, for example 'Mirrors'. But if you're like me and watch a lot of them, you either know it's not real or you're just simply not scared by it and enjoy it. So there is no fear at all. So if we watch horror films with our fears in then will it help us conquer them? Now I need you all to answer this simple question, Did watching a lot of horror films prevent you from getting nightmares?
