Horror & Audience: Why We Love To Be Terrified

About

Audiences eat up (pun intended) the horror genre.

Hear from some of these leading horror directors about what draws them to the genre, how they build story within it and as a genre that is forever shape shifting, where to next for themselves and the genre.
