The ‘Theory and Hypothesis’ of Make Believe
Humans try to avoid discomfort
Yet the suspension of disbelief is addictive
Screams provide the adrenaline rush we all crave. The dread and powerlessness we experience as suspension builds in a fantasy world is a totally intoxicating mix. The slice/ dice/ fear factor ensures there is nowhere left to hide
Fear is not ‘logic’
Vivid tension is often best expressed via abstracted sound and image. Our innate ‘fear system’ is hardwired to both emotional and biological receptors. Audience imagination must be creatively invoked to elicit the desired fear response
