Horror genres & subgenres


Trying to see clear in the maze of horror genres and sub-genres is not an easy task! I tried to untangle it all for you. Of course, a comprehensive classification of the horror subgenres is impossible since it would be different for each of us….but here is how we see things!

There are 4 main horror genres:  Killers; Monsters; Paranormal and Psychological horror

To this, we add 2 sub-genres that are so popular that they can be considered as proper genres: Zombies, and Gore/Splatter.

  1. Hmmm, interesting out- line. I should try a horror story, since I avoid horror non fiction, to much horror in real life, but we should challenge our fears, I look forward to giving attention to your outline.
