Any other genre, no matter how effective, has walls of indeterminate height and existential length keeping our consciousness just a little bit anchored in the real world. Horror, on the other hand, bleeds into our minds and indulges our uncertain senses. In the hands of a bad developer, the occult can turn comedic. But if the atmosphere has just enough dread in the air, then we'll bristle at the mere suggestion of eerie shadow play or flickering lights. That, I think, is the power of fear and explains our need to brave it."
