    I would say horror focuses on scaring the reader. Dark fantasy can be scary, but that's not the primary focus. Honestly, I would look at which category has fewer books on Amazon and push it into those categories, so that there's less competition, but, from what I hear, horror isn't as popular as it used to be, so I would market it to the paranormal / dark fantasy crowd. I don't know too much about the genre though, so don't listen to me.
