WHY Horror? is a feature length documentary following horror fan Tal Zimerman as he looks at the psychology of horror around the world in order to understand why we love to be scared. Horror is a global phenomenon. Millions of people love it, yet horror fans are often misunderstood. Tal Zimerman should know. He's one of them. Tal goes on a journey around the world to understand why people thrive on on blood and guts found in movies, books and video games. He meets with the genre's leading filmmakers, writers, actors and psychologists to discover how horror looks in different cultures, why it's so popular and how it affects our minds. Tal wants to know - WHY Horror?
Entertaining but flawed documentary has Tal Zimerman asking fans, critics and filmmakers why they are attracted to the horror genre. The likes of George Romero, John Carpenter, Alexandre Aja, Chris Alexander, Don Coscarelli, Barbara Crampton, Elvis Mitchell, Jen and Sylvia Soska and Eli Roth are among the people interviewed.
If you're a fan of horror movies then you'll certainly enjoy the stories that are told here. After all, how can you be a fan of horror and not enjoy hearing others talk about it? It was great getting to hear some comments from the likes of Romero and Carpenter and then you've got some movie critics who also share their thoughts on the genre.
This documentary does suffer from too much time being devoted to some rather silly things including the subject and his mother going for brain scans to see what effect horror has on a person. I'd also argue that some of the topics covered aren't the most interesting but that doesn't take away from the fact that there's some good stuff here. The subject of men versus women when it comes to watching horror was fascinating as was the entire idea of "the final girl."
