    Slashers are the best when they are made by directors willing to go all the way...in other words: madmen! ;)

    I like all things horror, but slasher's the most entertaining to me. I grew up watching slashers on VHS, i love how silly (sometimes) they are, i love girls on slashers (they're always hot and cute so i fall in love with every slasher scream queen), i love the fx's, etc.
    I'm still catching up with classics i haven't seen before, so it's good to me i still have slashers to watch.

    Since this is all very general, I'll go with slashers. But I love good gore, good atmosphere, and very artistic horror movies. Which I prefer over any specific sub-genre (like From Beyond, Brain Damage, Suspiria, Bad Taste, Phantasm!). I also adore sub genre-crossers.

    I vote maybe for slasher but also love the zombies but is many zombies movies is horrible. Also for the case to be make for slasher movies also but it seem is many more slasher movies so maybe is more good ones more than zombies movies. I ask my friend one time about what horrors he likes and he say any movies with midgets. He say he buy any movie that has midgets in. I remember because one time one movie of Austin Powers comes on dvd and he say he must have and I ask why because I never to rememeber him talk about this befoe or even talk about comedy movies. Is genre of horror movies even to exist about midgets? I dont understand my friend about this.

    No is serious and is what my friend collect. I dont even to now about how to find out if movies have midgets inside or not but if has my friend buys. I now he has a collection for this but he is always to have crazy movies from difrent country that I never see before. But he loves Leprechan movies and tells me before should be more like this or any movie with midgets. I buy movie for him call Eyes of the Werewolf for Halloween because is say is a midget on the dvd package. We watch and is horrible but a funny thing and he never have this so he is happy to put in the collection. I now is strange genre like they say but I think maybe he enjoys for the humour?

    i voted slasher...DUH!!! though some films really suck in that sub-genre, they still are fun.

    btw:

    Ghost
    Monster
    Gothic
    Haunted House
    Possession
    Werewolfs
    Vampires
    Frankenstein

    Wouldn't all of the above fall under the category "Supernatural"
    and "Cronenbergian" couldn't that also be called "Body Horror"?
    & where is Expolitation?
