    "Why We Crave Horror Movies
    By Stephen King

    I think that we’re all mentally ill; those of us outside the asylums only hide it a little better – and
    maybe not all that much better, after all. We’ve all known people who talk to themselves, people who
    sometimes squinch their faces into horrible grimaces when they believe no one is watching, people who
    have some hysterical fear – of snakes, the dark, the tight place, the long drop . . . and, of course, those
    final worms and grubs that are waiting so patiently underground.

    When we pay our four or five bucks and seat ourselves at tenth-row center in a theater showing a
    horror movie, we are daring the nightmare.

    Why? Some of the reasons are simple and obvious. To show that we can, that we are not afraid,
    that we can ride this roller coaster. Which is not to say that a really good horror movie may not surprise a
    scream out of us at some point, the way we may scream when the roller coaster twists through a complete
    360 or plows through a lake at the bottom of the drop. And horror movies, like roller coasters, have
    always been the special province of the young; by the time one turns 40 or 50, one’s appetite for double
    twists or 360-degree loops may be considerably depleted."

    What do you think the thesis sentence is?
