Terror Inducting Fictions Name Institution Date Terror Inducting Fictions Why horror story is considered a ‘rite of passage’? Sparks investigated critically at the physiology of male viewer during a horror movie and discovered a fascinating trend. The more terror they experienced from a film they seemed to enjoy more. He concluded that when men watch horror movies it makes most men feel brave and masculine thus may make a horror movie equivalent to a rite of passage of a tribe. According to Sparks males have motivation in our society to handle the dangerous situation our culture associated entrance into manhood with hardship. Sparks' theory concluded that male watching a movie feel as if they are dwelling vicariously through the actors they are there for able to conquer their anxiety safely where no harm can come to them in front of the screen. This has enabled society to tap into the dread movie; the phantom killer attack Corey Holland and Jami Lerner and kills Corey and later kills Thompson and Daniel. It induces a terrorizing feeling to the viewers when it calls Jami telling him ‘I am going to do it again and again until you make them remember' (the town that dreads 1976). References Vogel K.
