Question for horror writers

So, having come up through the ranks with fantasy novels, that’s the genre whose word count requirements I’m most familiar with. But I’ve noticed that horror novels are often substantially shorter.

So, horror writers (or editors, agents, etc.): In your experience, what’s the minimum word count for a horror story to be published and accepted in the market as a legitimate novel? (Talking about adult fiction, here, not YA.)
