Hello. I have been working on a book about "shock cinema" including extreme horror, psyhological horror, pseudo-snuff, actual snuff (and the possibility of its existence), death films such as Faces of Death and other "real" death on video, and generally disturbing films. I am looking at the reasons why people choose these films for entertainment, watching flims and reviewing them, interviewing directors, doing surveys of fans, etc.
If you would be willing to fill out a survey consisting of 13 short answer questions that ask about your thoughts and preferences. You will remain anonymous, however I will acknowledge all participants at the beginning of the book. I have not decided if I am actually going to use the surveys in their entirity, pieces of the survey, or if I am going to just use your answers to further theoretical ideologies. If I go for the latter and use an exact quote from your survey I will reference you as the author of the idea; unless you choose to remain completely anonymous.
I would be happy to answer any direct questions or email you a copy of the survey if you want to check it out before you decide for sure that you want to volunteer for this project.
Please contact me either in a reply to this message or more preferably to my email: horror.disturbia,firstname.lastname@example.org
Any help you can give me will be much appreciated. If you decide this is something you would like to do, I want you to know that I do not mind if you skip questions that you do not feel like answering or that you do not have an answer to.
Thank you for reading this message and for your consideration.
