How to use "Make blood run cold" in context?

One quality that makes horror so effective is its ability to make blood run cold. Horror is a genre that inherently taps into our deepest fears, and it is no coincidence that the chills it induces often manifest as a rush of cold sweat. It is, of course, not just movies that invoke this visceral reaction in us, but also tales of the macabre that are told around the fire or whispered in the dead of night.

There is something about horror that sticks with us, even after the final credits have rolled.
