Best Types of Horror Moviesheather Best genres or sub-genres, so to speak withing the horror genre. I'm ranking these by scariest. Obviously you can have more than one genre in a horror movie, but for the lists sake, these are some of the individual ones horror movies have evolved into.
The Top Ten
Psychological stories are number one for me because they are believable. They take something seemingly innocent and make it horrifying.
GET OUT is still very scary to me...
I like split movie
My favorite - blackflowerV 9 Comments
Movies like The Rite, The Exorcist, The Exorcism of Emily Rose... Something about possession strikes us at the core of our fear. The scariest because they're so realistic. - heather
I love when they take a crucifix and pray,and then the crucifix flies up in the sky,and get upside down.It is so good.And then they take a holy water,and the Satan went crazy.And then exorcist screams-For the name of Jesus Christ is send you back too hell.
And I am religious person,u know those people with crucifixes on the wall.Those who has cross around their neck and those who go too the church every week.i'm orthodox what.
And I still enjoy watching those movies.
Its ok but there all the same really
Its classic and cheesy fun
I'm typically not a horror fan. Movies about posession/demons or ghosts tend to scare me.It's the unknown factor. Slasher's however are the one horror subgenre I've liked. Scream is my all time favorite movie. Cheesy,gory classic serial killer stuff is the best.
Best category so many frights and jump scares
I don't know about Possession movies, and I hate found footage, it was ok when the Blair Witch Project did it, but I seriously don't think it got any better, like the paranormal activities, I think I remember one scene that was kind of freaky, but other than that, I did not find it anywhere nears as scaryV 9 Comments
Three letters. R E C
Films like The Blair Witch Project, Paranormal Activity, and Cloverfield. These movies add an element of realism that is super creepy. - heather
Three words. THE.. BEST!
Some of the best - blackflower
Ghost stories, reminiscent of hiding under a sheet with a flashlight at sleepovers. The stories that have fascinated us since we were kids. - heather
ZOMBIES ARE REALLY TERRIFYING SPECIALLY THE WALKING DEAD
Quickly becoming a favorite amongst movie goers. Zombies are great. You can do so much with a zombie movie, it's just such a fun genre. - heather
Now most of the zombie movies are comedy movies to me. - zxm
These movies are good
Especially with added family drama - blackflower
Films like House on Haunted Hill, The Legend of Hell House... - heather
Ok come on, Insidious, The Conjuring, The Shining and Poltergeist. Some of the best horror movies ever.
When a Stranger Calls, Urban Legends, Candyman, and similar films. - heather
First movie comes to mind is Annabelle. - Goku02
Movies like The Strangers, Straw Dogs, not quite slasher films, but where a regular bad guy (s) toys with a regular person.. - heather
Guys have you ever seen "The Thing", and I'm not talking about the prequel. Now that's a good horror movie - Yeetthebaby
These movies make us very careful about what's out there, in the universe.

Does Lovecraft count, or is it just Alien and Predator?V 1 Comment
I love when it's like someone's getting back at someone. I like when horror movies also have a story.
Movies like I Spit On Your Grave, or Shutter. - heather
Wrong Turn is the best horror movie... Love how it happens in the middle of woods.
Wrong Turn is the best horror movie... Love horror movies that happen in woods.
Movies like Texas chainsaw massacre, wrong turn and friday the 13th
Well, I've got to say that the atmosphere is scary in these movies and technically backwoods -horror movies could be based on real eventsV 3 Comments
Its very scary I nearly cried when I saw frozen tozer
The universal monster movies and creature features
Horror mixed with real human emotion is a volatile mix.
Involving Saw, Hostel, Serbian Film and Would You Rather. The only thing I hate in the subgenre of horror it involves torturing people to death and can also involve the Splatter genre together with Torture in a film along with a Slasher film except it involves people being in absolute suffering and is meant to shock the audence and turn there stomach.
Has vampire in it. Not much more to say.
E.g Nosferatu, The Lost Boys and 30 Days of Night.
Hereditary is not a cult film. It’s a masterpiece and has been from the start.
Wicker Man, Hereditary
Cosmic horror explores the fear of the unknown and can make us feel insignificant
Involves being filmed on a person's computer in first person view with only the screen in the entire film. Movies like Den, Unfriended and the new one sequel of Unfriended Game Night.
