Psychological horror is a subgenre of horror that focuses on the psychological and emotional turmoil of its characters, rather than relying on graphic violence or supernatural elements. The genre explores the human mind and the fears and anxieties that can arise from mental illness, trauma, and other psychological phenomena.
Psychological horror stories often feature unreliable narrators, dreamlike sequences, and elements of surrealism that blur the line between reality and fantasy. The horror in these stories is often implied rather than shown, with the focus on the psychological effects of fear, paranoia, and madness on the characters.
