yeah, what he said! :evil: :evil: :evil:
SLASHER. Never loved it more than I do right now. I have plenty of favorite horror films that aren't slashers, but overall, I own more of these than anything else in horror.
Haunted House for me. Very close second and third are Slasher and Zombie. Good poll Rhett!! This was a tough one.
Giallo sandwich, followed closely by Gothic, Cronenberg..etc.
has to be Vampires for me... I have always loved them... every since I was a kid.
Werewolves easily. I'm actually surprised that they've gotten so many votes, so yay!! There really needs to be more werewolf movies though.
2. Animal Attack
4. Killer Kids
7. Giallo (will move up the list. Just got into them and am enjoying them a lot)
8. Vampires (mainly because I don't like the way vampires are portrayed in movies any more...they aren't scary)
Mine would be werewolves although I watch more slasher flicks- werewolf movies are really hit and miss- there are some great ones and a whole lot of really bad ones- much easier to find good or decent slasher films than werewolf ones. Honestly I could really call it a 3 way tie for werewolves, slashers and vampires but Ill give the edge to werewolves
Frankensteins all the way as there's nothing better! Anything instantly becomes entertaining with mad science.
"Torture porn?" I rather like the term. I always found Carpenter's title of "Pornographer of Gore" to be just as great.
Slasher then Zombie, Monster and Giallo.
Had to go with Slasher as Halloween's 1981 TV airing was my first run-in with that type of horror and it scared the bejesus out of me.
LOVE Torture Porn. They're the only new horror movies that will get to me every time. Haven't seen one yet that didn't get under my skin and that's what a horror movie should do.
Zombie, with Gothic really close behind.
Hey I don't have a problem with the films I just have a problem with the condescending term.
Ghost is my fave sub-genre!
I voted Haunted House just because I think that's the best description of what I like--anything supernatural, curses, etc. Ghost would be another good one, but that's a little too narrow. There's nothing like a creepy old house where bad stuff has happened.
I don't like most things that are too realistic. I like zombie movies in general, but I think I've reached the point where it's gotten tiring for me.
Monsters for me. I've loved monsters since I was a kid. From Kong and Harryhausen, to Godzilla and other Japanese kaiju, to big critters like Tremors and The Host, to dinosaurs, to alien horrors like Alien, Predator, and The Thing, a creature in a movie always grabs my interest.
Second for me would be zombies, followed by slashers.
I looked at the list and chose giallo, as I will watch a movie JUST BECAUSE it's a giallo. And that's the only genre on that list I can say that about. Many of my favorite movies fall into the other genres, but I'd never pick up a vampire, werewolf, or slasher film just because that's what they are. I'd have to hear good things about them or whatever.
But if I see The Seven Houses with the Painted Cat That Laughs at the Black Belly Scorpion's Bloody Eye or whatever in the rental rack, I'm a'watchin
Voted for slashers. Grew up on 'em. Zombies would be next. I'm always in the mood for both.
The majority of my favorite horror movies are zombie movies, so I went with that. (though I think it's getting a bit stagnant these days, with lots of disappointments recently)
