It is truly fearful to watch horror films, though the youths and adults enjoy watching it. However, when it comes to children, we hardly let them watch such genre of films because it harms their state of mind. To some extent, it is true that it may cause harm to the mental state of the kids. Therefore, children should be kept away from watching horror films, but before moving forward to know the effects of horror film on children, let us trace the history of horror films.

The first horror film was released in 1896, directed by French magician Georges Mèliès, a two-minute vampire tap that viewers loved. Horror movies are as old as movies themselves, 1896 marking the estimated year when films started to be shown to the public openly. Among other well-known early horror films "Der Golem" was produced in 1913 by German filmmakers in the early World War I, in which the theme was featured as a Jewish legend and was titled, A Golem is a sturdily built clay man that had been made to save the ghetto. However, when his work was completed, he refused to stop existing, and ran amok, finally to be beaten by a little girl. A sequel of the same film was produced in 1920.

The horror movies have been always a special genre of movie for the mass; however, it has been proved that it leaves a negative impact on the mind of the kids. The NIMH study proved that in kids of age 5 and less, particularly toddlers, horror movies can create sensitive cases of anxiety. The symptoms of this nervousness which consist of sleeping disorders, ferociousness and self-endangerment. Both studies proved that kids who are exposed to horror films happened to avoid real life circumstances shown in an illusory manner on screen.

The subjects showed fear of facing those circumstances. Some kids not only tried to get rid of real life situations, but also avoided watching other films or TV shows dealing with the same circumstances that instilled the imaginative fear. Many symptoms are linked with a reaction of watching horror films. The most common symptoms consist of fever, crying or screaming, trembling or shaking, clinginess, paralysis, sweating, chills and loss of appetite.
