A study found that horror movies can actually help you lose weight. And the scarier you find the movie, the better the results. Study participants were attached to heart rate, oxygen, and carbon dioxide monitors and then asked to watch six different scary movies. One participant got so terrified while watching The Shining, she burned 184 calories. Researchers also determined that the majority of participants experienced a decrease in anxiety and frustration after a good scare. So, you burn calories and improve your mood. Win-win!
