Horror Movie Rating Priorities for Steve Hutchison

Note: genres are major film subdivisions. Most movies belong to many genres. The same can be said about subgenres. Subgenres can be subdivisions of genres or genre hybrids. They can also originate from a film era, a cinematic style, a cult audience or a particular market. Most movies belong to many subgenres. Moods are emotions considered crucial to the plot and conveyed through music, dialogue, performances, build-up and pacing. Moods speak to a film's ambiance. A movie usually conveys more than one mood. Antagonists are people or entities that pose a threat to the protagonist, or hero. Antagonist types are divided into 5 categories: visceral, society, science, afterlife and fantasy.
