by Jody Mabry

Aaaaaaah! Don't you just love a movie that makes you scream? Well, you must be if you're here for this quiz right now. Horror movies have come a long way, evolving in a way that allows them to have a better screenplay, more interesting characters, and bigger budgets. This genre has grown so much that there are now different types of horror movies. So if you were one, which would it be?

The goal of horror movies is to get a response from us. Whether it be elevated heart rates or nervous laughter, a good horror movie is meant to scare you. Of course, horror existed in literature long before it appeared on the big screen around 1890. As this film type grew, it spawned many subgenres that include slasher horror, psychological horror, gothic horror, and disaster horror. 

The creatures and elements we saw in the movies also grew from the average zombie, vampire, and werewolf to include demons, ghosts, psychopaths, natural and man-made disasters and cannibals. If you're a big fan on this kind of film and you love a movie that stops your heart and gets it going again, take this quiz to find out just what kind of horror movie you are!
