People’s Substitute Fascination With Evil

An article in USA Today (June 3, 2011) reports that the movies that are most in demand by the public this summer are the ones that feature different aspects of human evil. According to one movie director, “Your movie is only as good as your villain is.”

People’s obsession with evil and frightening villains can be understood only from a functional energetic viewpoint. Those who are fascinated with the subject are the ones who are severely emotionally out of contact with both the inner and outer worlds.  Experiencing the cinematic depiction of human evil in a vivid and realistic manner induces the emotion of fear (biophysical contraction) and serves to bring people into partial, albeit distorted contact with themselves.  Viewing these movies satisfies people’s need for a temporary, substitute form of emotional contact.
