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.
