The new Halloween movie is now in theaters -- and is expected to be a box office hit.
But don’t worry. While seeing Halloween -- or any other horror movie -- might scare you, it won’t stress you out. Instead, psychologists say it will actually calm you down.
Apparently watching horror movies allows you to forget your own daily fears and worries and get totally involved in other people’s fears and worries.
It both distracts you from your anxiety -- and also puts your own problems in perspective.
Your job might be terrible and your kids might be driving you crazy … but at least a psycho killer isn’t chasing you around with an ax. (The Ladders)
