Watching on, seeing a truly horrific horror flick,
we naturally first wonder
how such a horrible villain or demon
is able to exist, even if fictitiously.
Watching on, discovering the mysterious origin,
we shudder to realise
how the antagonist came into being,
in a credible and believable way.
Watching on, relating further,
we have the true shock when we reflect on
how we might become just as horrible,
if we were in the same position.
Watching on, to the end,
we should conclude
that the best horror films
are truly good cautionary tales.
