Horror suggestions? Also, a survey

Thanks to Byron talking about publishing some writing, I am now beginning to look into submitting some of my own writing. If you like horror, do you have any favorite magazines, anthologies, etc? I’ve found a few that sound potentially promising, but I have not read magazines with any regularity in ages, so I don’t trust my judgement fully.
