I don't agree with the second point. There are plenty of unquestionably fantastic stories that are about mystery, romance, personal drama, etc., especially with more "literary" fantasy.
I'm not to keen about the whole "some people believe in it" idea either. Most "non-fiction" about haunted houses is prety much made to describe scary experiences anyway, so it's fictional counterpart would be the typical ghost story, which is horror.
I also don't think that it should be considered separate from fantasy, because, technically, to even qualify it would have to be some sort of fantasy. I honestly can't think of anything with that description that wouldn't either fit into horror, urban fantasy, magic realism or paranormal romance. As for stories about ghosts and such that don't properly fit into horror or fantasy, maybe we could come up with a better name for them.
On the discussion page I suggested that it should be about stories that feature horror elements but without the intention to scare, and very little, if any, magic usage, but now I'm not sure about that either, otherwise we'd have to include a shit ton of horror comedies and cartoons as well.
