Quintessence of Terror: Extreme Horror 2018

​This book contains a list of horror movies ranked from the simplest to the most complex. The level of complexity is calculated by the sum of four classification types: 8 moods, 9 genres, 27 subgenres and 64 antagonists.

Each listed movie includes a list of moods, genres, a synopsis, a review and eight ratings: stars, story, creativity, acting, quality, rewatchability, creepiness and gimmick.

This edition includes horror movies that are creepy, shocking, gory and weird.

Movie Quintessence

Movie quintessence measures the purity of movies or complexity of movies based on their genres, subgenres, antagonists and moods. There are several ways this tool can be used. Here is an example of a typical method:

1) Select an ANTAGONIST of your choice using the ANTAGONIST drop-down.

2) Select QUINTESSENTIAL using the ANTAGONST PURITY drop-down.

3) Select ANTAGONIST PURITY using the SORT BY drop-down

4) Press APPLY

The list you get represents the movies considered the most quintessential/typical to your antagonist. These movies featuring the selected antagonist and not much else. The lower you get in the list, the most complex the antagonist list gets for any given movie.

You can reverse this order using the ORDER drop-down. Since they are story compilations, anthology films tend to have more complex lists of antagonists. You can exclude them from the search results using the ANTHOLOGY drop-down.
