Abstract: 
In order to study the effect of watching horror films on the immune system, variations on the concentration of secretory immunoglobulin A (sIgA) existing in saliva samples were studied. The subjects (consisted of26 female under-graduate students who were studying psychology and education) were selected. Before starting the experiment, all the participants were observed by physician and their physical health’s was approved. The participants were divided randomly into two experimental and control groups (n=13). A horror film was shown to the experimental group and a family-emotional film was shown to the control group. Based on the pre-test post-test design, before and after watching the films, their saliva samples were collected in two minutes time in the same situations. The saliva samples were analyzed by Nephelometer analyzer and the results were analyzed by the analysis of covariance. The results showed that there was a significant increase in the concentration ofslgA after watching the horror film in the experimental group. Also, the difference between the increase in the concentration ofslgA after watching a horror film in comparison to the concentration of sIgA before and after watching a family-emotional film in the control group was significant (p<0/05). It was concluded that watching horror film can affect the concentration of sIgA. As the results of other studies confirmed, watching horror films like acute stress can increase the concentration of sIgA in saliva.
