McKamey Manor is a haunted house, but it's nothing you'd send your kid to for Halloween. It's billed to interested parties as "live your own horror movie."
Taking pleasure in fear is actually quite normal, it turns out. According to Kate Brownlowe,
neuropsychiatrist and section chief of neurobehavioral health in the
department of neurology and psychology at The Ohio State University
Wexner Medical Center, being afraid is essential to human survival. "On
an evolutionary basis, people who had a good fear response to things
that were dangerous were far more likely to survive in the wild," she
tells Mental Floss.
