What Happens When You’re About to Die?

This week Reactions is checking out some scary slasher science and what happens when you’re about to die. Your body chemistry does a lot of crazy stuff when you’re in the face of danger. This one goes out to all of our slasher flick fans out there. We love horror films here at Reactions, so in honor of all of those chased by monsters, villains, and zombies out there, we decided to take a closer look at what happens chemically in your brain and body right before you die. After you watch the video, do us a huge favor and post your favorite slasher flick down in the comments. Happy Halloween!
