Halloween is widely recognized as one of the scariest times of the year for North Americans, but terrifying times are not reserved for just the month of October, as 'The Anatomy of Fear' expresses. Created by Sortable.com, the illustrated graph explains what "fear" really is, and delves deep into the many reasons individuals might feel this spooky sensation, from odd phobias to haunted Halloween theme parks.

As a lover of horror films, I'm happy to see that this chilling chart explains why certain people enjoy being scared, using medical research and neurological evidence. I'm even more pleased to find that, though there are 1200 "haunted" attractions in the US, there are 3000 charity Halloween attractions, proving that sometimes it pays to be spooked!
