Andrew Selepak Comments on the Increased Popularity of Horror Movies

Andrew Selepak

Andrew Selepak, University of Florida College of Journalism and Communications director of the online  Master’s program with a specialization in social media, was quoted in “Here’s Why R-Rated Horror Movies are Making a Comeback on the Big Screen” on CNBC on Oct. 28. Selepak comments on the uptick in theater attendance for horror movies this year.

“While it seems like going to a scary movie would be the exact opposite of what someone would want to do in times like this, there is also a cathartic release of fear that can be accomplished in a movie theater that is not possible in real life,” said Selepak. “Scary movies provide a more acceptable form of release to the terror that we otherwise fear from the real world.”
