Movie Realism

From Best to Worst

The Plausible, the Surreal and the Supernatural

List of horror movies from the best to the worst; sorted according to the following rating priorities.

Regular feature films are only assigned one level of realism. If a movie contains events possible in real life, even if improbable, it is classified as PLAUSIBLE. A film with one or multiple paranormal or science-fiction elements and threats is automatically assigned the SUPERNATURAL label. SURREAL stories belong to both worlds and to none, because a suspected fantastic element is introduced but never confirmed or because its validity is the core mystery.

Note: Anthologies can be included or excluded. They answer to the same classification rules but are assigned a REALISM level for each short story individually.
