    Wow, an old thread but fun none the less.

    I'd have to go with Gothic Horror as my top choice, but then anything along the classic line is good for me too. So the early Universal and Warner stuff (two strip technicolor is a fasination of mine), Roger Corman's Poe series, Hammer, Amicus, Coffin Joe, Mario Bava, Suspiria, Dellamorte Dellamore and I think Full Moon does a good job a contemporary gothic-esque tales.

    I also like Zombies, Japanese Shock and Mondo. About zombies though, I kinda toss in animated inanimate objects as another like. So not only Frankenstein and zombies but stuff like Puppet Master as well.

    Sci-fi horror - anything in outer space. Good or bad, love 'em all.

    Creatures - spiders, komodos, whatever. They tend to be drawn to attack large breasted women in tight T-shirts.

    Gothic - huge Dark Shadows fan, but just about anything will do.

    Slashers. See creatures above.

    After discovering movies like Intruder, The Prowler, Friday The 13th, Maniac, etc, I would definitely cast a vote for the Slasher Genre.

    After watching Lady Terminator, I might even give a little vote to Indonesian Horror too, just for the hilarity of it all.

    Yup. Slashers for me, too.

    Also love films where the serial killer is the lead (Maniac, Ted Bundy, American Psycho), and revenge/exploitation stuff (I Spit on your Grave, Ms .45)

    and I'll throw in a vote for stuff concerning mutations of any sort (The Fly, The Howling, Street Trash).

    Slashers, werewolves, exploitation, Asian ghost stories, any kind of monster that comes from the water....especially anything shark-related, and I love movies that take place in Caves.

    I would say exploitation movies would be my favorite genre.
