I'm Not Going to Judge Horror Movies by their IMDb Ratings Anymore
13 May 2015 | by (Tabriz, Iran) – See all my reviews

I've always been looking for horror movies with 6+ or at least 5+ ratings, but lately I've been watching a number of horror movies with ratings between 4 and 5, which I expected to mean the movie was terrible, and yet I found them to be some of the best and most effective horror movies I've seen thus far. On the contrary, I watched movies like The Conjuring, Mama, The Woman in Black, Sinister, etc. and was bored beyond what words can describe. It so happens that Barricade is yet still one of those overlooked hidden gems in this seemingly not so popular genre.

Not only did Barricade have likable characters with awesome performances but also it employed lots of effective jump scares and a really creepy atmosphere. It had more than one twist and every one of them came as a big surprise. It created false expectations and then proved me wrong. I totally love these kinds of movies and I wish there were more horror movies like this.

Judging by the reviews I can tell people gave it low ratings just because it confused them. I think it's not a good enough reason to judge a movie so poorly. The movie was meant to confuse the audience and did so effectively. Moreover, it didn't "leave the audience confused" like some other movies do and everything made sense in the end. The confusion did not in any way get in the way of its jump scares, so I can't really complain. Ironically, a movie such as "Stay (2005)" gets a very high score despite its being 100 times more confusing than Barricade. Why did people like it so much? Because it explained everything in the end. The same is true with Barricade, so I don't really understand all the hate.

As a horror movie fan, I strongly recommend Barricade. It's a great movie. I give it 8/10 and I'm not going to judge horror movies by their IMDb ratings anymore.
