Abstract [en]

According to some recent popular viral articles, watching horror films is purely profitable in terms of individual health. A recent article in The Telegraph, for example, explains that experiencing a horror film can burn 200 calories which is equivalent to a half hour walk. Could this be a reason to bring in the horror film genre in the upper secondary classroom? Well, no, but using horror films in school can be profitable in other ways. This paper will present some of the advantages of and opportunities with using horror films didactically and initiate a broader discussion on emotions, didactics and film.
