The Art of Fear
I’ve heard that there is a fear of the unknown, the main reason behind racism and homophobia, the sneaking terror of that which is different overwhelming and controlling you, altering your way of life so that you cannot live how you want to. It works in horror films too, wondering just where the killer/dinosaurs/monsters/clowns are, knowing that they could just be around the corner, only to find that they were hiding in the closet all the time. Except not the dinosaurs. They’re usually in the bushes.
