Can movies affect your heart?
As technology becomes more advanced,film makers have more control over your emotions.
Thrillers,action movies,suspense,horror,crime are common genres.And there are many successful movies in these genres.And all these movies manipulate your emotions so that you are at the edge of your seat most of the time.
My question is what is the effect of these movies on the weak hearted ?
Is there any research done on people who have heart related problems or who already have had a heart attack? Can such movies create any additional problems like for example arythymia?Should not doctors warn their weak hearted patients not to see such movies?
My point is not that film makers should stop making heart breaking movies ,but that the weak hearted should stop seeing movies which affect their health.
Is there any research done on the above questions?
