19 November 2014 7:01 AM, PST

Google conducted a new study recently in an attempt to figure out how movie-goers make up their minds about which film to see in movie theaters. According to the study, fans of dramas choose movies based on plot summaries. Comedy fans look at the cast and whether a favorite comedic actor is involved. Those who go see family films heavily rely on positive reviews. And action fans care most about who directed the film. But there's one genre that doesn't rely on plot, cast, positive reviews or the director. That genre is horror.

That's likely the reason why so many horror films have tiny budgets, terrible reviews and mostly unknown casts, yet they are constantly at the top of the domestic box office. "Annabelle" ($37 million opening, $6.5 million budget, 29% fresh rating) recenly »
