Horror movies and stories are so popular among matures. Many of them are not allowed and appropriate for children. My questions are about the possibility of writing a horror story for children.
Question 1: What kind of benefits does a horror story/movie have for mature audience? Do horror stories have any benefit for children too?
Question 2: What are the parameters which make a horror story interesting for matures? Are these aspects of such stories interesting for children too? Which one of these interesting parameters for children can be psychologically harmful for them?
Question 3: What are examples of good horror stories for children?
