Can you use horror as a treatment for phobias?
Some psychologists think so. In this episode I talk about some of the common phobias, and how horror movies might be a safe place to come to terms with some mild fears.
If you have a phobia, chances are there’s a movie or book for you. I talk about how I used horror to help me cope with my own phobias.
Also in this episode I read some listener mail and do the inaugural Hellbent for Horror episode movie review, with a rating system that will change your life. Really. Honest. Life-changing.
I hope you enjoy the show!
