I LOVE horror films, even though the current ones are mostly trash.
Favorite Type of Horror - Possession/Spirits - Mind bending, Psychological - Like above, the "well-made" Slashers, because there aren't many.
Favorite Horror Films - The Exorcist - Hostel, Part 1 - The Omen - Bug - Wrong Turn - Silent Hill
Least Favorite - Slither - Paranormal Activity - Cloverfield - The Blair Witch Project - Monsters
I dislike horror films that attempt to be "ominous" and "suspenseful" by holding back certain aspects of the movie, such as the actual "face" of the monster, persay. Some films are succesful when doing that, but others just fall flat, making the entire experience a waste of time, and effort when it comes to those who produced the film. That really bugs me.
Other than those "special" movies, I'm a big fan of the genre.
EDIT: Movies such as "Prom Night," "Piranha," etc... I don't even consider to be horror. They're just a sorry excuse for the genre.
