They found feelings of fear, which triggered the release of adrenalin and raised metabolic rate, could burn 113 calories in 90 minutes – the same as a 30-minute walk.And The Shining, starring Jack Nicholson, was the best calorie burner of the lot. Dr Richard Mackenzie of the University of Westminster, which held the study with movie rental firm LoveFilm, said: “The 10 films tested set pulses racing.
“Adrenaline is known to lower the appetite, increase the basal metabolic rate and ultimately burn calories.”
