That's a pretty bad ass list, Vasquez. One of the things I really admire about the horror movie genre in general, is the fact that there is so much to choose from. The number of different horror sub-genres are pretty extensive, and the majority of them are endlessly entertaining. I will certainly never run out of horror films to watch.

Re: Ur Favourite film from each Sub Genre

Check this guy's posts - he goes through each sub-genre and lists at least 10 films with each.
