Why do I like scaring myself?

I just watched a few Korean and Japanese horror again, I lent a dvd from my friend- and although I know that horror movies scare me easily, I still like to watch it... I got a bit scared though, since the ghosts were scary-looking and the story was good and relatable... I just can't help scaring myself especially when it's at night already...I imagine stuff. Do you like to scare yourself or do something you now will have a bad effect on you?

I feel scared when watching ghost movie also. Especially, i didn't dare to watch Supernatural alone at night. Every time, after i watched ghost story movie, i will feel so scare to go to toilet or kitchen by my own. I even feel scare when i sleep. However, i still will watch ghost movie next time.

I think that there is something about the rush that you get from watching a horror movie that is so enticing. At least it is for some people. I know that there are a lot of people who watch various horror movies for comedic purposes of all things. Which does make some sense, as some of them go so over the top in trying to get a fright, that it is almost amusing in many ways. But in other ways, the over the top nature of a lot of horror worries works more than well with a lot of people for certain. Still its been a while since I've seen a horror movie and I don't know when the opportunity presented itself. I used to watch them a little too much, more than I really needed to for the sake of my own sanity. It is really something that is exciting in many ways, something that just causes a great rush. I don't make a habit of scaring myself, but it is just really something that I do from time to time on an unconscious level. It is really kind of amusing a lot of the time.

I hate when that happens but I love to watch scary movies. The worse one was when I watch the Thir13en Ghost movie. I was scared for months imagining that I was seeing the ghost every time I was home alone or when I was by my mother's office alone. I don't think I would watch that movie again just because it scared me for months.

Don't watch too much horror movies my dear because sometimes you will get confused whether it could be real or not.You will also be imagining things and scaring yourself.And as you have said this could have a bad effect on you after viewing it. Me I don't like scary movie I prefer comedy, cops and robbers and love story.

I don't remember when was the last time i watched a horror movie. This kind of movies don't interest me since I experienced nightmare after seeing. So why give my self a problem and stress.lol! On the bad effect, I guess like mine is some nightmares and disturb sleep or maybe it can makes you easy to be scared right away.
