Or how come Musical or Animation happens to be a genre, right?
Very weird categorization.
So if you had to categorize movies, what would your genres be?

A very good point. People who are really into comedies are normal people who really like comedies. People who are really into horror movies tend to take it on as a lifestyle.

Lawl, you make us sound like we're a cult of goths who feed off of every shitty horror movie that comes out once a week.
I love horror, but I can't stand the shit that's being churned out recently. For me personally I like horror because of how it can do pretty much anything, without having to worry about if it's PG...
And besides, just because someone likes horror doesn't mean it's the only genre they like.

"There's no real objection to escapism, in the right places. We all want to escape occasionally. But science fiction is often very far from escapism, in fact you might say that science fiction is escape into reality. It's a fiction which does concern itself with real issues: the origin of man; our future. In fact I can't think of any form of literature which is more concerned with real issues, reality." - Arthur C Clarke
"Science fiction stories are extraordinary voyages into any of the infinite supply of conceivable futures." - Isaac Asimov
