A Certain Kind of Horror

We all have either read, watched or even experienced some kind of Horror within our lives. Horror is an untested genre compared to the likes of others, it could stand on it's own but at times is found pairing up with other sub genres and always getting something added to it even though it never truly needs a change or makeover. We are all scared by certain elements of horror but aren't there certain ones that just scare us a little but more then others? Out of all the types of horror there always seems to be solid constants which consist of blood, a victim and the whole foundation to which makes horror so good at what it is...scare. So while I remember making a list a while back of the certains kinds of horror, that was then and this is now and here are the certain types of horror to which we as a society find to scare the living hell out of us but we cannot seem to get enough of.


Classic/Fright Horror-


The Gore and Gruesome-


Spooky-


Splatterpunk/No Filter-


It Just Is- How is "It just is" horror? Think back on some films or even books to which you asked yourself, why is that killer they way he is? Why are those people crazy lunaticcs who are out to get people? You think about it long and hard and you come to a starling and horrific conclusion..there is no reason for the horror your seeing and there is no reason as to why the killer is the way they are other then...It just is...IT JUST IS!
