I'll surprise you and ask Why horror?, one you've never properly been able to answer for anyone, least of all yourself. You'll think (if time allows) and say it's because of the hope of horror and it's because of the horror of hope. You will not

“Love isn't just what you feel for someone when you look at them. It's how they make you feel about yourself when they look back at you.”
Priya Sharma, Fabulous Beasts

“I should know better than to try and measure the breadth and depth of love by its noise and dramas but there are times that I crave it, as if it’s proof that love is alive.”
Priya Sharma, Fabulous Beasts

“Horror itself is a bit of a bullied genre, the antagonist being literary snobbery and public misconception. And I think good horror tackles our darkest fears, whatever they may be. It takes us into the minds of the victims, explores the threats, disseminates fear, studies how it changes us. It pulls back the curtain on the ugly underbelly of society, tears away the masks the monsters wear out in the world, shows us the potential truth of the human condition. Horror is truth, unflinching and honest. Not everybody wants to see that, but good horror ensures that it's there to be seen.”
Kealan Patrick Burke
