King added that people are more difficult to scare today as they “have gotten a lot more savvy about the tricks that novel writers and film-makers use to scare them with”.

But he does believe it is still possible to scare people “in a really honourable way, if they care about the characters”.

"What I want the audience to do is to fall in love with these people, and really to care about them and that creates the suspense that you need. Love creates horror."
