Shock Horror

Why do some people like to be scared or frightened by ghost stories and horror movies etc. ? I wonder if it is some psychological thing, where they need to feel some sort of scared emotion. Variety is the spice of life, so the expression goes, and people like to try different tastes : sweet, sour, bitter, salty, spicy etc. Without variation food would be bland. Maybe it is similar for experiences and emotion. Some people like the adrenalin rush of from risky things, listening to sad songs, reading romantic stories, and watching scary movies. Although it still seems strange that they would read / watch things that would scare them and make them worried about anything in dark rooms (or whatever was in the last scary story that they saw / heard).
