What ratings do most horrors have?
I have observed the following: This is a prime example! Horror movies tend to hover in their scores around iMDb 5.2 -6.5 and Metacritic 50 – 70. So don’t give up if your first looksie has scores in this range. Think of it as grading on a genre curve.
Note: This is just for straight horrors not comedy horrors. Comedy horrors score way higher because more people “get” comedy. Haters keep straight horror scores down.
