Interesting that Se7en ends up higher in a horror poll than Martyrs, Drag Me To Hell and The Conjuring. Se7en is a good movie, but i don't consider it a horror movie and i don't consider it to be better than The Conjuring or Saw either (what is up to my own preference anyway)

So Perfect Blue is an Animation, Thriller, Mystery, Horror, Music. I'm sure there's also a joke in there somewhere, so why not add Comedy too. I also felt really sad at the end, so surely it's also a Drama, right! The whole internet thing was also very sci-fi at the time, so with that settled we can get Perfect Blue in every ICM Forum list from now on.

Lovely film though.

Not at all, but sticking to some tighter nomination rules might be useful (primary genre only?)
I mean, nobody nominated Saving Private Ryan for the German list, even though it features Germans. So why have such loose restrictions for genres?

The German poll didn't have those restrictions either. It had to be German or German language. People were still free to decide if something is "German enough". The same happens here. People are free to decide if something is "horror enough". If enough people think so, the movie makes the list.

How can we make it more strict anyway? "Primary genre only"? Who's to decide if horror is the primary genre? Should it be the first genre-tag on IMDb? Surely that's not a good idea.

And how does one determine "primary genre", such that there's uniformity for any given film? Still an individual-by-individual judgment call, no?

This is part of the fun, to be honest. Don't do away with genre lists, that would be a bit of an overreaction.

I'm kind of with Onderhond in spirit on this issue, but in reality it simply doesn't work. And it's certainly not just an issue with our lists here - I will never understand Dirty Harry being considered noir for example, but there it is on the TSP 1000 noir list - and on a bunch of other noir lists from academic or critical sources as well. Dr. Strangelove isn't science fiction to me either, but it is to plenty of critics and ordinary film buffs. Etc, etc. Defining genres is just an unwinnable proposition when all is said and done so I don't know why we should worry about it here, though I for one don't mind and usually enjoy the discussion about it even if we never do get anywhere. I'm open to people helping me re-think my prejudices and I'd hope some others are too, that to me is really the point of all of this, getting us to to think a little more deeply or in a different way.

The same happens here. People are free to decide if something is "horror enough". If enough people think so, the movie makes the list.
Like someone suggested here before, people might not even be doing that. If it is tagged as Horror on IMDb, that might just be enough for most. And when they just update their list on a yearly basis, once a film has been tagged with Horror, it will never leave again.

First genre listed on IMDb may not be perfect, but I'm sure I'd generate a better list than the current one. I mean, if perfect is our goal, the current nomination system shouldn't be considered either.

Again, this is not about strictly coining every film, but the balance is completely off. It's not about a strange entry left and right, it's almost refreshing to see a batch of 3 that are actual horror films.

I suspect a lot of those lists are made by people who have very little affinity with the core genre films. Arthouse/cross-over films are a good source to still deliver something.

I don't care for the the horror vs non-horror discussion on individual films, but I do care about those ambiguous cases that would have been ranked much higher if not for the fact that half the voters don't consider them horror and thus chose to not include them, making the ranking of the whole list dubious at best.

Just to name a few: Pan's Labyrinth, Se7en, Valerie and the Week of Wonders, Persona(?!), Picnic at Hanging Rock and Woman on the Dunes would have been very high on my list if I had included them.

I do think there needs to some kind of master list of films that are eligible (yes, I'm aware that it will be borderline impossible to compile one).

I agree. For me it personally takes the fun away when i see so many - borderline horror / Not really horror - movies make an appearance. I mean many of the borderline movies are movies that everyone will have seen anyway (Se7en, Perfect Blue, Jurassic Park, Black Swan, A Clockwork Orange, Persona, La piel que Habito, that i think that we would all benefit from making nomination process a lot stricter, cause it would make more room for lesser-known genre movies to make it into the top 250 at the expense of more known borderline horror movies that could make it in any genre list.

Lots of movies here made the list while not even labelled with horror on IMDb at all (though some of them are on the They Shoot Zombies, Don't They list which is way too broad as well imo.). And movies that i would consider as horror as well, like maybe Jaws aren't seen as horror by IMDb.

It would be fun to experiment when this list has finished to see what the list would have been if we had only included films that have horror as primary genre on IMDb. I might try to do that, because i'm curious to see what the result would have been.

EDIT: From last year's list 52 movies of the top 250 even didn't had the horror label at all on IMDb.

That wouldn't be very hard. The list of all nominations will be available on IMDb, so it's easy to export it and filter in Excel.

Good! I was disappointed when this dropped last year after I participated for the first time and gave the film a 100 point boost. Now if I only I could convince everyone of the merits of the sequels... :think:

I don’t like it enough to vote for it but I gave that one a 6/10 and the English version a 3/10 (or a 2, I can’t remember). So yea the Spanish version is miles better.

Good! I was disappointed when this dropped last year after I participated for the first time and gave the film a 100 point boost. Now if I only I could convince everyone of the merits of the sequels... :think:
Why do you like the Scream movies so much or think that they're so good?

I have included Scream and a bit lower on the list also Scream 2 and Scream 3. I haven't seen Scream 4. I like them, and they're in some way a modern Halloween which i've seen recently and was a bit flawed / dated IMO. In some way, Halloween is a big influence of modern movies, but might've been the victim of it's own success, as other movies have done the same and honestly better like Scream (although Halloween did some things very well, like the opening scene and the constant threat / fear that you feel in the movie, which is quite unique for a horror movie, but acting performances are terrible, side story is uninteresting (even less interesting than in most cheesy horror movies today))

and the ending had an anti-climax, although bad guy should have been more vocal.

It would be fun to experiment when this list has finished to see what the list would have been if we had only included films that have horror as primary genre on IMDb. I might try to do that, because i'm curious to see what the result would have been.
I don't think IMDb even identifies a "primary" genre for films. From all I can find, the genres are listed alphabetically for all titles.

Why do you like the Scream movies so much or think that they're so good?

I have included Scream and a bit lower on the list also Scream 2 and Scream 3. I haven't seen Scream 4. I like them, and they're in some way a modern Halloween which i've seen recently and was a bit flawed / dated IMO. In some way, Halloween is a big influence of modern movies, but might've been the victim of it's own success, as other movies have done the same and honestly better like Scream.
Thanks for asking, and before I elaborate my thoughts, I think it is worth stating that I agree about Halloween not being quite as good as some of the films that it has influenced. As an atmospheric mood piece, there's load to like about Carpenter's film, but Zombie's remake is a far more satisfying take on the story, delving into Michael as a character rather than have him as a random "boogeyman".

I suppose what I like the most about the Scream movies is that they work exceptionally well as murder mystery tales. The very best murder mysteries only improve with every viewing as more and more clues come light regarding the identity of the murderer and which would have easily been missed on a single viewing. That's how I feel about all four films. Craven and Williamson drop plenty of small, subtle hints along the way; some parts (the video store meeting in the first film) also take on an entirely differently flavour once you know who Ghostface is.

The scripts are fantastic too. Endlessly quotable and quite clever since each entry in the Scream franchise is directly related to an element of movies in general. The first Scream movie is about horror movies in general with all the unwritten rules that exist. The second is about sequels while the film itself follows the rules of sequels - everything bigger, more elaborate and shocking and so on. The third film is about trilogies and indeed it follows the unwritten trilogy rules too, while the fourth (and most clever entry) is about remakes and reboots and the directions that they tend to take these days. Particularly the differences between remakes and the originals that they are based on. There's also something really cool going on in the fourth film as it abides by all the unwritten rules and yet our heroes manage to subvert the rules. All very clever and unfortunately not something I can elaborate more on without spoilers.

And then there's the comedy. When push comes to shove, the films are slightly more funny than they are scary, but Craven achieves the balance pretty well in all four entries. Lines like Tatum telling Dewey that the janitor is his superior, or even subtler stuff like Dewey trying to act all tough and cool around his boss who is stressed out and smoking a cigarette while Dewey clumsily licks an ice cream. The meta/self-referential jokes are pretty funny too, e.g. Liev Schrieber complaining about his small cameo in a horror film in Scream 3.

The three main recurring characters are excellent too. Neve Campbell's protagonist evolves and changes so much across the course of all four films - from shy to assertive, then paranoid, then trying to hide herself away from the world since "killers can't kill what they can't find" or something to that effect, to her coming "out from the shadows" in the fourth film. The relationship between Dewey and Gale also undergoes some pretty human and realistic shifts throughout as their experiences drive them closer together. Gale's gradual humbling as a fame-hunting reporter (between the first and fourth film) is handled particularly well since it is not a this-->that shift, but a gradual change where we still see the flicker of fame-hunting in her eyes. And of course Dewey progresses from being almost the joke cop to the Sheriff in the fourth film.

I could keep going on, but I guess the sticking point for me is that each movie in the franchise is endlessly rewatchable. I'm up to six viewing for each, and they only improve more in my esteem with every viewing. I just find them to be incredibly intricately made films with their plugs at the movie industry and Agatha Christie level murder mysteries, not to mention several really cool little touches from Wes Craven, like the sign that is shot to read "no living" in the second film moments before one character dies.

Yes, but i will do a test how the list will look like if we only allow movies that uberhaupt have the horror label on IMDb cause 20% of the movies here don't have that. After the list has done, i'll post what movies wouldn't have made the list and which movies would have been "in the list" instead.
