People may like horror for many different reasons.
Personification of non-human's, perspective, etc.
There's some considerate guidelines to take in-to account.
Of course, horror's meant to be scary, but not to frightening as to cause panic attack.
Trigger warnings may give away the ending or some plot twist. Here are some tips:
~Profanity. Can say like 'oh dear' or something.
~Gore, avoiding unnecessary graphic detail.
~Animals. Can be something like 'the dog growls at presence of ghost'
~Self harm, etc. You can, however, have a character sacrifice oneself.
~Abuse (like exploitation, arranged marriage) although you can imply abduct, poison, etc.
~Stereotyping groups (portraying certain authorities, religions, cultures, etc. as disrespectful)
You can use (with discretion) controversial topics (execution, foeticide, the double effect, etc.) lightly.
You can mention potential topics (cannibal, baby death, poisons, apocalypse, etc.) in story insofar as it partains to the plot, but no glorifying trauma.
You can have the narrator be the villain, victim, or bystander.

BASED ON A TRUE STORY WITH ME

based on a true story from me.
9:00 pm, the clock read.
I was walking in my room when I suddenly felt like there was a ghost or some sort of demon following me.
I jumped on the bed, scared and afraid of what happened to me.
My vision went black, I could not see anything. Bright, neon, exuberant colors came then to my vision.
I was so confused and scared of this vision.
Then a TV noise pixel vision came to me, and the bright colors disappeared. It was just black and white TV noise. No sound, just plain confusion and my eyes hurting.
This lasted for under 30 seconds.
My sight finally came back. I could see my surroundings now. I was on the bed, in my room, saw the bunk beds, my desk, my brother’s desk, and the door.
It was like I could not escape my room…
And something or SOMEONE was holding me back.
I was so scared and stayed on the bed for the rest of the night.
what hallucination was this…?
