Subgenres of Terror, 2nd Edition: Futuristic Films

Included in this book are 49 reviews of horror and horror-adjacent futuristic films.

Futuristic films are films with settings beyond the year they were released or made, even if that setting is now in the past, and films with a futuristic setting despite of unspecified date.

Each book in the second edition of the Subgenres of Terror collection contains a thematic watchlist in which movies are sorted in order of preference.

Movie Remakes

A movie remake is a movie that is based on an earlier work and tells the same, or a very similar, story.

Select a level of creepiness and up to three decades. See how the movies rank from best to worst.

A film franchise, or movie franchise (also referred to as a film series or movie series) is a collection of related films in succession that share the same universe, or are marketed as a series. A movie franchise is a collection of films related by copyright. Sequels, prequels, remakes, re-imaginings, spin-offs and public domain films are common examples of franchised films.

These are lists of movies ranked from the best to the worst using the sum of eight different ratings: stars, gimmick, rewatchability, creepiness, story, creativity, acting and quality.
