What are you afraid of? Why?

This week, Chris Williams finds out more about things that scare us and why they scare us.

Jim Faro, co-creator of the haunted attraction Blood Manor, talks about designing a haunted house, his love of horror, and how to hire a demon on Craigslist. Then, Fordham University professor Dean McKay talks about studying disgust and a virtual reality experiment designed to help people overcome their phobias.
