Watching a scary movie for just 90 minutes could help burn as much as 113 calories, which is close to the amount burned during a half-hour walk and equivalent to a chocolate bar, a University of Westminster study has revealed.
The 1980 psychological thriller ‘The Shining’ was on the top of the list of calorie-burners, with the average viewer using up a whopping 184 calories.
‘Jaws’ took the runner-up spot, with viewers burning on average 161 calories, and ‘The Exorcist’ came third, with 158 calories, the Telegraph reported.
