King argues in "Why We Crave Horror Movies" that horror movies have “a dirty job to do": they feed the hungry monsters in our psyche. Write an essay in which you put King’s thesis to the test. Briefly describe the first horror movie you ever saw; then explain its effect on you. Like King, speculate about the nature of your response—your feelings and fantasies—while watching the movie.

    But this is what I have to include in the essay Cause-and-Effect Essay Criteria and Peer Reviews Questions Is the topic original or does it offer an in-depth analysis of an existing topic, bringing less obvious causes and/or effects to light? Does the paper possess a clear sense of audience and purpose? Explain. Does the paper contain an engaging and well-placed thesis? Does the author fully develop the topic, avoiding oversimplification? If not, what other causes and/or effects might he/she consider? Does the paper contain any fallacies in reasoning? In other words, does the author make any incorrect assumptions? What is the author's organizational plan? Are causes and/or effects presented in chronological order, order of importance? Is this organizational plan appropriate to the topic? If not, what would you suggest? Does the paper employ appropriate transitions to take the reader from one paragraph or section to the next? Is the essay free, or virtually free, of grammatical, mechanical, and spelling errors? If not, make corrections within the body of the paper using a different color font.

    Okay, so the first thing to do is to make a list of events in the movie that was confusing puzzling frustrating haunting and emotionally moving.
