You can write in whatever POV you wish - you'rethe author! Most stories are written in third person, but you can certainly use first person if that would tell a better story.

Yes, writing in first person for a Horror story can create a sense of immediacy and connection with the protagonist, making the events feel more intense and personal for the reader. It can also help build suspense and psychological tension by immersing the reader directly into the character's emotions and experiences.
