    Why do we like to be scared -- as entertainment? I still don't quite understand.

    • Ashley Aker 4 years, 1 month ago

      It's thrilling. I think it heightens all our senses, and that's exciting. I certainly don't like to experience true fear, but a scary movie can be fun because it doesn't have real repercussions. The story ends, and the fear subsides.

      Your answer is well put -- fear of death makes us realize we are alive...perhaps...
