Character Focus

A film's character focus determines the identity of its protagonists and antagonists. For example, a "vampire film" isn't a film with a vampire in its plot, but, rather, a film about a vampire or vampires, whether they are good or bad; heros or bad guys. They are central characters.

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