Guys, horror covers a lot of subgenres. It doesn't need to be all blood and guts. Some examples of classic masterpieces of horror ( they're considered as such):

Rosemary's Baby, Repulsion, Touch of Evil, The Exorcist, The Shining, ...

The list goes on and on.

Doesn't need to be slashers or mashers or brashers. ;)

I dunno. Like someone saying I don't like horror films is a very broad generalization.

Stranger Things for example is horror in a way. But it's so much more than that

So let me get this straight, you're saying Horror is not always horror but that something not Horror might in fact be Horror?

No. I'm saying there are different types of horror films. The horrific aspect of them may change. Psychologial Horror, Physical Horror, etcetera  :-))
