Feel the Chills

Fear is infectious. Like herd animals, when one of us humans is spooked, we all get frightened! We have an instinctual need to see the horror for ourselves, then turn and run! The irresistible nature of fear will rub off on your project and make it so your audience can't take their eyes, or ears, off your message.

Content creators can use this knowledge to their advantage. Using a scared tone can pull in an audience and emotionally invest them in the situation. A good scare is all about setup and payoff. If you build up the tension with the right scared tone, people are definitely sticking around for the payoff.
