52 films unfairly rated lower than 6 stars on the IMDb

Democracy is a flawed concept. Here are 50 films that the IMDb voters would unfairly have you believe are worth no more than 5.9/10…

Six out of ten isn’t a very good score, really. It’s barely over half marks. 60 per cent. It’s alright, but it’s not great. You wouldn’t be proud of getting six out of ten on most kinds of tests, would you? So you might assume that any film that scores under six stars out of ten on the IMDb isn’t very good – possibly even terrible.

But that’s not always the case. Averages don’t tell the whole story; anything that’s potentially controversial or divisive will end up with a score that suggests most people weren’t that bothered about it, since high and low scores will be averaged – and IMDb users often exaggerate their scores anyway, giving a film one star

[DVD Review] House of Fears

House of Fears is, for the most part, fairly typical slasher fare. It stars a pack of mid-to-late twentysomethings who are killed off one by one, save for a couple of brave brave fighters. It does, however and somewhat surprisingly, keep the gratuitous violence to a minimum, and there's nary a sex scene in sight. However, it doesn't have much else going for it — the writing's not that great, the cinematography's not that great, and the acting's certainly not that great. The overall plot has vague potential — some high school kids break into a theme-park style haunted house the night before its grand opening, only to find that their fears begin coming to life because of a tiny cursed statue!

The fears themselves are for the most part pretty general, ranging from claustrophobia, to a psychotic clown (as if there's any other kind), to being stabbed, to being buried alive.
