But the question is, how does it make you feel as a viewer. Do you feel sorry for the woman, even though she has saved herself in the end, or do you feel happy that the abusive man is dead even though he's spent the 90% of the movie terrorizing the heroine?

Well, I wouldn't call it happiness--more like relief. I guess it's like watching a horror movie, when they finally "kill" Freddie/Michael. Which makes me want to read the study to see if there was an interaction with gender of cheater.

hmmm... so do you experience actual anxiety before the bad guy is killed? I mean, not just worrying for a fictional character type anxiety... does it actually effect your personal mood?
