Violent Acts Based on Movies
How many people do what they see in movies?
There is no way to know for sure, there is some indirect evidence that what we see in movies, television etc influences our behavior. For example in Japan there are far fewer homicides resulting from firearms than in the United States, but many more deaths and injuries related to stabbings.
