Topic: Favourite Horror Sub-Genre and Which Movie?
I wanted to know what everyone's favourite horror sub-genre was (as the title says:)) and what you favourite movie of that sub genre is. Also why do you like that kind of horror movie, like what keeps you watching it?
Mine is (and I have a feeling it will always be) slashers.
My favourite slasher I'm going to say is...The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning. (I do consider it a slasher, although is has survivour horror elements).
That was hard, I thought for like five minutes haha. I love the original Halloween as well (proabably 2nd fav), the original TCM and both of those movies' remakes as well. Actually I just really love them all haha.
Slasher's appeal to me I guess because IKWYDLS was pretty much my first horror (and slasher), excluding Jaws (when I was young I didn't consider that movie horror, how niave I was...)
but ultimately slashers are my fav because I LOVE the chase scenes, and I have always enjoyed seing something somewhat realistic. Texas Chainsaw ALWAYS has amazing chase scenes! I love the stalking that goes on as well. I love all the genres of horror, but slashers will always be my favourite. I love the gore, suspense (which I knowall horror has...well expect pg-13 stuff, however some those are good....ok off topic). Just always really liked slashers.
I never found slashers all that scary although many do instill fear or a growing creepiness in me, if you know what I mean.
