    Slashers, followed by ghost stories and zombie movies. However, nothing touches my slasher love.

    I grew up on Friday the 13th, Halloween, Prom Night, and all of their offspring. Slashers all the way.

    I kinda figured "monster" might cover zombie/vampire/creature type films, but by all means pick other if you disagree. :)

    I have to say "Monsters." Give me kaiju eiga or mutants or zombies or demons or anything unworldly or ungodly and that's my kind of movie. All the other genres are great too but "Monsters" is the tops.

    Slashers. Friday The 13th, Maniac, The Prowler and now Intruder. I'm really digging this genre, as long as it's done fairly well.

    Exploitation, with slashers, zombie films, and gialli not too far behind. ;)

    Slasher at #1 but I love exploitation, werewolf, ghost stories, and nature gone wild as well.

    Slashers, because nothing beats a bunch of horny/drunk/mean teenagers meeting their messy/violent/blood-soaked ends at the hands of a crazed/deranged/psychotic lunatic with a hatchet/chainsaw/axe in the woods/cemetery/haunted house.

    Yeah, that always brings a smile to my face.

    i'll keep you updated. It wouldn't be until next fall, or possibly spring, though. I'm a little worried that the school didn't approve my friend's Cronenberg class, but we'll see how it goes.

    I voted for other...mine is definitely the mind-f*ck genre of horror. Stuff that messes with your head, and requires you to think. Second would suspense-type horror, and lastly would be gialli.

    Yep that's the right order. I would place devil/posession films before slashers though.
