As for the rest of the article, I consider horror a very broad genre(okay off the top of my head, you have psychological horror, zombies which totally warrant their own corral, slasher films, gorn, occultic detectives, Lovecraftian, J-horror, K-horror yes they are two different things), way too broad to accurately compare it to a genre as specific as the gothic novel. the Horror plot-line, which is simply a gory adventure story that follows the common Heroic Cycle plot-line, the Gothic plot is far more complicated; emotionally complicated.

You can also describe the way that your characters are feeling or acting, as well as their facial expressions. [19] Maintain suspense and mystery throughout your story.

These general genres are often subdivided into more specific genres and subgenres. Without all doubt, the torments which we may be made to suffer are much greater in their effect on the body and mind, than any pleasure which the most learned voluptuary could suggest, or than the liveliest imagination, and the most sound and exquisitely sensible body, could enjoy."* "When danger or pain press too nearly, they are incapable of giving any delight, and are simply terrible; but at certain distances, and with certain modifications, they may be, and they are, delightful, as we every day experience."** Then, from Plato's Symposium: “Remember how in that communion only, beholding beauty with the eye of the mind, he will be enabled to bring forth, not images of beauty, but realities (for he has hold not of an image but of a reality), and bringing forth and nourishing true virtue to become the friend of God and be immortal, if mortal man may.” Longinus, who was Burke's primary influence in this subject, wrote about the poetic sublime: Longinus, writing in the classical historical tradition says that the sublime implies that man can, in emotions and in language, transcend the limits of the human condition.

The Gothic genre is a mixture of a few things which can include:
  • A castle, ruined or intact, haunted or not,
  • Ruined buildings which are sinister or which arouse a pleasing melancholy,
  • Dungeons, underground passages, crypts, and catacombs which, in modern houses, become spooky basements or attics,
  • Labyrinths, dark corridors, and winding stairs,
  • Shadows, a beam of moonlight in the blackness, a flickering candle, or the only source of light failing (a candle blown out or an electric failure),
  • Extreme landscapes, like rugged mountains, thick forests, or icy wastes, and extreme weather,
  • Omens and ancestral curses,
  • Magic, supernatural manifestations, or the suggestion of the supernatural,
  • A passion-driven, wilful villain-hero or villain,
  • A curious heroine with a tendency to faint and a need to be rescued-frequently,
  • A hero whose true identity is revealed by the end of the novel,
  • Horrifying (or terrifying) events or the threat of such happenings.
  • A creepy creature saying 'Nimama', 'Nimama' continually in a dark spot.

Most of them contain supernatural beings and threat.
The Gothic creates feelings of gloom, mystery, and suspense and tends to the dramatic and the sensational, like incest, diabolism, and nameless terrors.
