As good as it gets. A movie that defines your Halloween season or ultimate scare.

Not quite as good as it gets, but really, really good.


A great movie.  One you will watch multiple times.  This should be the minimum standard for horror films.



A really, really good horror movie. Close enough to the minimum standard to earn multiple viewings.


A good film. Worthy of your regular list or at least checking out to see if it works for you.


Movie is so-so. Not a must see or maybe even worthy of recommending, but a film that will likely keep you watching through to closing credits. A lot of horror films are here. 


The beginning of the suck zone. Not completely sucky - has some redeeming features - but kind of sucky.


Movie sucks.


Movie really sucks.


Movie owes me part of my life back.
