A Horror Day
By Su Hui-Yu
Since its inception, horror has been a classic film genre and continued to affect people’s worldview and life for generations. Delicately made images are delivered to every household’s TV via broadcast. One night, after taking medicine, which had blunted my senses, I finished watching a re-run horror, un-scared. It was the next morning that I felt consumed by fear. Life could be a horror film itself, I found. Horrifying sounds, camera moves, editing techniques and the viewer’s own imaginations have all invaded our life. Nothing more horrifying can occur, as if horror had become a habit, or a standard procedure.
