    Default of which I'm afraid

    The movies of which I'm afraid are horror movies.
    Is the above sentence acceptable?

    Yes, it's very good grammar. But "I'm afraid of horror movies" is much more straightforward.

    I think that it is more natural if you say that you are 'frightened by' horror movies, or that they 'scare' you.
