You all might been thinking that, movies win here but nah, you are wrong! Ask a book lover the real terror of reading a horror book. I started reading this genre when I was in 10 years old and started liking it.
Here are some reasons that shows books wins over movies in this genre:
YOU CAN ENJOY SOLO EXPERIENCE
There are higher chances that you generally watch a horror movie with your friends or family. Also, you watch one in the theater with lots of people but when you read a book, it’s a totally personal experience and that feeling of horror is at brim.
THE EXPERIENCE IS LONG
A movie is generally of two hours and the effect is not long lasting. A book generally lasts of two to three days and hence, the experience is long lasting.
A movie being short generally lacks a lot of details and descriptions. On the other hand, the best thing about books is all the long details and accurate description of the particular scene which adds to the wow factor.
Movies are generally the point of views of the director, film maker and all people that is movies are made by the imagination of other person but while reading books you are the king of your own world and imagination.
YOU CAN’T AVOID THE SCARY PART
While watching a movie, the chances are that you can close your eyes or hide behind your partners arms but while reading a book you just can’t avoid the scary parts. If you skip, you will not be able to understand the remaining part.
I think books always rule over movies may it be horror or not.
