1. You’re used to receiving strange looks whenever you tell someone how much you love the genre.

What? You don't like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre?

2. You try and hide your passion for horror from your school/work colleagues but can't seem to keep quiet.

Pro tip: You probably shouldn't talk about serial killers in public.

3. You've watched A LOT of B-grade films in order to find a decent one.

It's a long process.

4. You still get frustrated when you see characters make poor decisions.

No, you probably shouldn't go into the basement, just a small snippet of advice.

5. You were probably way too young when you saw your first horror film.

But it spawned your love for the genre.

6. You've fought with people about which version of a movie is better - the original or the remake.

... And know the original almost always wins.

7. You'll fight to the death to defend your favourite horror film.

The CW / Via

"The Exorcist still holds up, you shut your mouth!"

8. No matter how much blood is shed on screen, there never seems to be enough for you.

"I demand more gore!"

9. You've watched every horror franchise under the sun but still want more.

New Line Cinema / Via

Seven films in one franchise simply isn't enough.

10. You don't care when a human dies in a film, but you'll fall to pieces if a dog does.

11. You don't understand why people bother with other holidays when Halloween is clearly the best.

It's also a great excuse to talk your friends into watching every creepy movie you own.

12. You know how heartbreaking it is to find out your significant other hates horror.

It's the ultimate betrayal really.

13. Your search history includes some pretty inappropriate movie titles.

Fox / Via

"I was looking up Cannibal Holocaust and I Spit on Your Grave for a friend, I swear."

14. You hate that the genre rarely gets taken seriously.

NBC / Via

"There's more to horror than Paranormal Activity you know."

15. You constantly feel like you have to convince people you're not a psychopath.

Warner Bros. Television / Via

Watching fictional films doesn't make you a bloodthirsty murderer tbh.

16. But at the end of the day, you're still proud to be a horror movie fanatic.

And that's certainly not a problem.
