  • For people who don't get "too" scared maybe... they r exciting and fun. They get ur adrenaline pumping, and its fun to c what ideas they come up with to scare the audience. Some horror movies just suck cuz they are so unoriginal.

  • I don't think so. While I am a fan of most horror genres, I think drama and action films appeal to a broader range of audiences, so they might be more popular.

  • I don't know if I'd call them the most popular, but I think that they have some of the best return on investment. If you look at their budgets vs. other movie types along with their box office returns, they return a much better multiple. What definitely helps is that horror movies always have (relatively) tiny budgets as they tend to use much cheaper actors. If I were a production company starting out and trying to stay afloat, I would probably go for a horror movie over a drama and definitely over action. Action movies seem like the fastest way to go broke.

  • I have not been to see a new release movie in a few years and I have stopped following the news about new releases. So. . . I cannot answer the question.

  • I'm pretty certain that action movies are the thing now. Every box-office hit is action.
