The Almanac of Terror 2019: 89 Years of Horror Movie Statistics

The following recommendation lists are based on 2000 horror movie reviews. They were extracted from a database and formatted for this book. Tales of Terror (www.terror.ca) is an online “gamified” tool designed for horror fans, students, authors and filmmakers. “Gamification” is the adaptation and transformation of tangible concepts into empirical games. Not unlike sport publications, fantasy leagues and role-playing games, the Almanac of Terror mixes and aggregates different statistics, facts, ratings and opinions. Most of the lists included in this book are sorted from best to worst according to their overall score. Some lists are sorted by pertinence. Our classification method uses genres, subgenres, ambiances and antagonists. Our different ratings are as follows: stars, story, creativity, action, quality, gimmick, and rewatchability. We sometimes use the “creepiness” factor when populating certain lists.

Bottom 50 Movies

This is a dynamic bottom 50 list of movies we’re reviewed.

You can set realism to plausible, supernatural or surreal. You can define a release year range. You can also narrow your search results by selecting a mood, a genre, a subgenre and/or an antagonist.

You will get a list of movies ranked from the worst to the best using the sum of eight different ratings: stars, gimmick, rewatchability, creepiness, story, creativity, acting and quality.
