Is paranormal considered fantasy?

Recommended Posts

What the title says.  I'm just curious to get everyone's view on it.  Would paranormal fiction (ghost, werewolves, etc) be considered to be like a subgenre of Fantasy or a genre all on it's own?  I've seen people call it both ways.

I'd call Paranormal it's own sub-set of Fantasy.  But it is six of one or half-dozen of the other.

I've always seen it as a subset. Lately there is a lot of bleed over from one set to another. Nothing is black and white anymore, which is a good thing for the most part.
