As a massive Stephen King/H.P Lovecraft devotee, I would like to know if there are any other fans of the literary realm of shock and horror.

I'm a fan of horror, though I haven't read many horror books.

Not my favorite genre, but I do like horror stories :P I'm currently reading a collection of short horror/disturbing stories by Joyce Carol Oates.

I really enjoy some of Stephen King's earlier/more popular works (IT, Stand, etc.)

Yep. I never could get into IT, something about the characters and setting kinda turned me off. Which is a shame, seeing as how that's supposed to be one of his masterworks. My personal favorite is Misery, which I guess I'm a bit biased for since it was my first.

I love to watch horror but anything gory just kills the feel.
Like I hate watching Saw. But something like Grudge, The Ring, Annabelle is good.

IT is spectacular (at least in my view) and would def consider it one of his masterpieces. Misery is great though too.

I like psychological horror the best because if feels more real. Anything outlandish like somebody surviving being dunked in acid or getting shot in the brain 5 times just isn't right. Unless the point is to be ridiculous.

my dream is to become an unsuccessful writer and instead a janitor or so in a large, deserted haunted hotel, somewhere in the mountains.

Poe. How can one NOT like Poe? I'm cutting through his complete works. I also plan to start a Penny Dreadfuls compilation (published by Fall River) and then, sometime soon, start an H.P. Lovecraft horror compilation.
Good stuff.

I've only recently started to get into horror, it's not my favorite but I can definitely respect it. I just got a collectors edition of Bram Stokers original Dracula stories. Pretty stoked to read it once I finish the book I'm on now, which only has about 30 pages left in it.

I do love horror when I'm with friends but it's not something I willingly put on when I'm aloneXD
