Definition of horror Gothic
#11
Horror: the survival instinct of the hero turns on and he or she confronts or runs away from the danger or surrenders to it.
(prey-hunter tale)
Gothic: the danger wakes the curiosity of the hero and against commun sense he or she follows the trail to discover the nature of the danger. Every gothic fiction relies on horror as a hook, but in fact they are mysteries.
