Why Nudity Is So Common In Horror



When nudity is introduced into a film of any genre it tends to stimulate and titillate (hehe) the viewers base emotional response system and have the effect of ‘grabbing your attention’ as they say, this includes sex scenes which although rarer than the occasional bare breasts are still used often to entice a reaction from the viewer subconsciously and although I’m not a scientist I would be inclined to believe that some mild form of perverse endorphins are released giving the audience a little high.Now the crux of my thoughts in relation to horror more specifically, when utilised properly, nudity and sex can create an emotional tipping point in the viewer and serves to almost sidetrack them into letting their guard down so that they experience more of a ‘hit’ when any violence, gore or basically crazy shit happens; just think about the number of times you’ve seen a woman about to jump in the shower then it cuts to the knife wielding mental patient in the garden bed outside the window, or the couple having pre-marital sex when all of a sudden a door slams with no influence other than some perverted poltergeist. When the film-maker draws your attention in with sex and nudity they have you in the perfect mental space to not be prepared for what happens next.

    I’d appreciate being given the proper credit for my work as the original author, copying and pasting text does not make you the writer.

      It was source credited at the bottom of the post as they do it in WordPress Pressit feature on your site If you would rather not have it reblogged we will delete immediately. But to be accurate we did not take credit for your post.

        I’m relatively new to blogging, I seem to be getting the referral views so don’t worry about it, just seems odd that it’s your name at the top

          Yes my my stats over 20 click throughs to original post so far a so far. There are two ways to Reblog stuff using WP one puts link to original post at the top the other puts it a the bottom. We use both depending on whether we know the original source or not. Glad it is bringing you some traffic.

            It’s a bit confusing but I’m getting the hang of it slowly, feel free to delete my messages and thank you for the views, sorry if I offended but you seem to understand where I was coming from.
