The reason we chosen to do research about horrors on imdb was because most experts will be rating and commenting on films therefore it was easier to look on imdb because it will give me reliable information and helped me chose the sub genre of my opening sequence.
These are the most popular horror movies out at the moment on imdb. The most popular horror genre is supernatural. However, my group has chosen to do a slasher genre, this is because there is hardly any popular slasher genre films on the market at the moment. Another reason for there not being many slasher sub genre's out is because they have ratings below 7.0, this may be because there are a few issues with the slasher sub genres that companies have made therefore we will try and find these problems and do our best to avoid making these.
Also we researched the highest rated films on imdb of horror. The highest rating on imdb is 8.6 for The Ornate Lock. The sub genre of this can fall under two categories thriller and mystery. However, again there is no slasher sub genres in the highest rated films most of the top rated horrors are either thriller or sci-fi. Linking back to the most popular horrors we will try to make sure we have no problems when making our trailers.
