    If you've found yourself hooked on the latest gorey Netflix hit Squid Game, or you're an avid fan of the current raft of true crime podcasts and documentaries, it could mean you have a high level of 'morbid curiosity'.  Morbid curiosity refers to a 'motivation to learn about threatening situations', either through witnessing them, or as a simulation, such as a book, film, or podcast.  Now Coltan Scrivner, a researcher at The University of Chicago in the Department of Comparative Human Development and a Fellow at the Institute for Mind and Biology, has devised a quiz to reveal your level of morbid curiosity.  Questions include whether you'd be interested in attending a public execution, watching a head transplant or learning more about the minds of serial killers.  While an interest in grisly topics might seem prurient, Coltan told Femail that it could actually prove to be a positive way to manage fear, saying: 'Horror can serve as a sort of surrogate for your anxiety. 'It pulls you into the story and attaches your anxiety to the threat in the story -...

    BEIJING (AP) — The thrills and chills of the big screen are back in the world's biggest film market. With coronavirus well under control in China and cinemas running at half capacity, moviegoers are smashing China's box office records, setting a new high mark for ticket sales in February, with domestic productions far outpacing their Hollywood competitors. February marked China’s all-time biggest month for movie ticket sales, which have so far totaled 11.2 billion yuan ($1.73 billion). China overtook the U.S. as the world’s biggest market for movie ticket sales last year as the American box office took a massive hit from the closure of cinemas because of the coronavirus pandemic. Chinese theaters were able to reopen by midyear and have seen steady audience growth since then. Local movies have also benefited from periodic unofficial “blackout" periods, when only domestic productions are allowed to be screened. A dearth of major Hollywood blockbusters over recent months appears to have also boosted the market for Chinese films. “People were encouraged to stay in Beijing for the Lunar New Year, and so watching...

It’s recognizing that until the day they become your spouse, they do not belong to you, nor you to them. "And it’s honoring the person who is to be their spouse one day and not creating confusion or stirring up feelings that will cloud judgment as you discern whether you will be each other’s partner for life.” Audrey explained that when her and Jeremy, 30, “messed...
    It is strange to make a Year-Ender list of what we found the most entertaining movies from Hollywood without mentioning a single Marvel movie. Well, that was 2020 for you, and thanks to the pandemic, it has been Marvel-free year, that saw only a few blockbuster releases, though Netflix and Amazon offered some gems and then not so much. There have been films like Tenet and Mulan and the upcoming Wonder Woman 1984 that braved the lockdown to reach theatres/ Disney and Warner Bros meanwhile tried to attract more consumers by either partially or completely releasing their films on Disney+ and HBO Max respectively. The Matrix 4, Godzilla vs Kong, The Suicide Squad And Others, Warner Bros. Pictures To Release Their 2021 Biggies in Both Theatres and HBO Max (Watch Video). With limited releases in cinema this year, and lot of those releases not being upto the mark, we had a very miserly choice of movies to be plucked as our most fave films of the year. Strangely, perhaps reflecting the bizarreness of the year, we have to give a...
    01Actress Nushrratt Bharuccha is not a huge horror fan, but has to watch a few in the line of work. She says she has found a technique to help her sleep after catching up on scary movies. She is set to headline the horror film, “Chhorii”, for which the actress seems to be preparing in full swing. “For me watching a horror film is like one of those cheap thrills, which I know I’ll not be able to get through, but I still would want to, and go down that road anyway. I cannot watch a horror film fully. I keep hiding behind my shawl, or cover my face with something when some eerie part comes because I just can’t see it. But I have to watch it because I need to know how it ends or how the mystery solved. Chhorii: Nushrratt Bharuccha Starts Shooting for Her Upcoming Horror Film in Madhya Pradesh (View Post) This is very important for me to get out of the theatre in peace,” she said.

    A woman is frightened by what she's watching on her laptop while laying in bed. Guido Mieth/Getty Images The first time I remember being scared after watching a horror movie was when I watched the original "It" at a sleepover party in 1990. I later swore off horror movies after almost running out of the theater during the previews for the 2003 remake of "Texas Chainsaw Massacre." I've always felt like I was missing out on something, though, and didn't understand why some people could enjoy horror movies while I was peeking through my hands. I set out to conquer my fear by watching horror movies every night in October to see if I could finally learn to love horror. Shockingly, after watching more horror movies this month than I ever have in my entire life, I now actually look forward to watching the films.
