Horror, as a subset of fantasy, creates a world where we yearn for
normality to be restored and root for those who attempt to restore it;
it is the flip side of comedy, and operates the same way. Horror can be
a part of the Christian sensibility, and I think King shows this in
books like *The Stand* and *Needful Things.* I don't know for a fact
that King IS Christian, but he operates under the rubric. Dean Koontz
does the same thing in nearly everything he does. ---djb.
