The Neverending Movie List

Some time ago I started a list of horror movies (if you’re curious about why, you can find out here).

What began as something to do while I was bored quickly morphed into a weird compulsion to list every horror movie I’ve ever seen. And put it on here. It wasn’t long before I decided some dumb list by itself isn’t enough, so I thought I should also rate each movie on some totally subjective, non-scientific scale.

This scale has since been modified several times. Its latest iteration is 0-13. Cuz 13. Why not?

The Rating System
0-1  There are no words/Various levels of unwatchability (even for me)
1.1-2  Had such potential but remained below average
2.1-3 Watchable but only just barely
3.1-4  Forgettable but watchable
4.1-5  Average, marginally entertaining-ish
5.1-6  Somewhat better than average
6.1-7  Probably worth seeing
7.1-8  Fairly entertaining
8.1-9  Pretty damn good
9.1-10  Definitely well worth seeing
10.1-11  Really damn good
11.1-12.9  Must see for any number of subjective and/or cinematic reasons
13  Required viewing, class. This will be on the test.

Movies with multiple versions or the same title are dated.

Some movies also have an Irony rating. This happens for two reasons. First a movie tanks on a level so spectacular it becomes a personal favorite despite or because of the very nature of its failures. Second a movie is cinematically important but does zero for me. Irony ratings work the same as the rating system.

For your further amusement and bemusement, for movies I’ve seen multiple times, I’ve included the number parentheses at the end. When accompanied by a slash and a second number, that’s how many times I saw the movie back to back in the theater.

I’ve also provided links to those films reviewed right here on Blogferatu. What can I say? I’m a giver.

This is an ongoing endeavor and will change continuously as I remember/add movies.  Again much of this is utterly subjective. A high score doesn’t necessarily indicate artistic genius. A low score doesn’t necessarily indicate raging incompetence. Feel free to leave comments! Ask questions. Suggest movies. Question my judgment and/or sanity.

Here we go.
