Don't think so. No doubt that horror is a popular genre worldwide and across classes. I'm sure the most pronounced demographic variation is by age group, not class or nationality. You can't see people under bombs wanting to watch it, sure, but they're probably not getting to watch much of anything; it's not hard to imagine given groups that might not care for it. I find it boring with very few exceptions and those are meta (Cabin in the Woods). It's also depressing that it's such a big genre.
They plunder, they slaughter, and they steal: this they falsely name Empire, and where they make a wasteland, they call it peace.

In the forests of the Pacific Northwest, a father devoted to raising his six kids with a rigorous physical and intellectual education is forced to leave his paradise and enter the world, challenging his idea of what it means to be a parent.
Ben and Leslie Cash have long lived largely off the grid with their offspring - Bodevan, Kielyr, Vespyr, Rellian, Zaja and Nai - in a cabin in the mountains of Washington state. The parents have passed their ideals to their children, namely socialism (in its various forms) and survivalism. With the former, Ben considers most of western society as being fascist, especially corporate America. With the latter, he figures that no one will or should be there for you, so you better learn how to take care of yourself in all its aspects.
