Movies are meant to entertain us and many of us love to watch thrillers or scary movies. During these movies, there tends to be many instances where crime or violence are involved. A lot of us enjoy the suspense and the scare factor to it, but not many of us think about what it can do to our mood. I know most of us have probably watched hundreds of murder scenes and other violent scenes, but does this have any effect on us?
One study shows that people do become more aggressive after watching violence in movies, however, it depends on what personality you have. It is interesting to see how it depends on how people react to the violent scenes they watch. These scenes can affect our decisions are made due to emotion and how we think. People in the study were affected in different ways and some were more aggressive than others after watching these types of scenes.
Movie makers are not going to change the what they put in their movies and violence is always going to be a part of it. It’s intent of being entertainment is not always going to be beneficial to society. These violent scenes can cause aggression to some and this may lead to violence. Finding people with aggressive behavior at a young age is something that people can do to prevent violence in movies from affecting their behavior and aggression.
