Topic: I need some help choosing Genres for movies

I am helping Meh out by attaching a Genre tag to the Movies in Morguespace.   Do you think we need more sub-genres such as Giallo, Found Footage, or Demons?   Or should Demons ie...Night of the Demons, Evil Dead, Demons 1 and 2 go under Zombie or Supernatural?   Any Suggestions for other Sub-Genres?

Re: I need some help choosing Genres for movies

Of the movies mentioned I would consider them  possession or demonic possession horror movies.

Re: I need some help choosing Genres for movies

many films fit into several sub-genres... you should attach several sub-genres to each film when necessary..

for instance Death Proof could be Carsploitation, slasher, exploitation, thriller etc...

Re: I need some help choosing Genres for movies

yes I have been adding many sub-genres to each

Re: I need some help choosing Genres for movies

How about a cannibal  sub genre?  Or  witch\Black Magic?   Killer Clowns?  Toys?

I put it under Thriller and Slasher  smile

Re: I need some help choosing Genres for movies

Oh man!  Do not put non Zombie movies under a Zombie tag around here...can feel blood boiling.  smile

A Demon tag is good.  Def Found Footage, Vampire, Paranormal, Romance, Werewolf.  Hmmm...all I can think of other than the obvious.

Re: I need some help choosing Genres for movies

LOL...Oh man,  the pressure...I know, I know Cabin Fever is NOT a zombie movie either. 


The categories are...

3D
Anthology
Comedy
Foreign
Monster
Revenge
Slasher
Torture
Western
Alien
Apocalypse
Comic
Indie
Musical
Romance
Supernatural
Vampire
Zombie
Animated
Mad Doctor
Remake
SciFi
Thriller
Werewolf

Re: I need some help choosing Genres for movies

Re: I need some help choosing Genres for movies

You really have a Romance tag?  I posted that but was joking.  That's cool. 

Which Wicker Man?  The remake could go under the - Nicolas Cage was one of the coolest dudes ever but I finally had to admit he was making bad choices - Tag.

Videodrome - Body Horror, arthouse horror

The Wicker Man - religious cult film, musical, horror, arthouse

Re: I need some help choosing Genres for movies

Evil Dead is not a traditional zombie film and doesn't really fit in with the rules of the genre but it is still very zombiesque.. I'd say they are possessed zombies..

Re: I need some help choosing Genres for movies

Will do, Ms45!

I would put The Wicker Man in the thriller section probably and I would put Videodrome under psychological.

Re: I need some help choosing Genres for movies

Videodrome can also be sci/fi horror

Re: I need some help choosing Genres for movies

And yes I really setup a romance genre smile Dirtygirl and I are working hard to setup proper subgenres ( and yes more then one per film where it makes sense ) so you can easily find and rank films.

Re: I need some help choosing Genres for movies

Thanks for the help on those,  I will post more I am not sure of  smile

i certainly wouldn't call "Death Proof" a horror film at all. exploitation yes but not horror.

Re: I need some help choosing Genres for movies

Just call it a Tarantino flick.  That automatically tells folks it's a mash of genres while being a slave to none.

-- See my PM smile


Imprint?

-- haven't seen it yet.  Can't help you with this one.


The Wicker Man?

-- "Religious" or "Spiritual" Horror.  Nothing supernatural occurs here, reality isn't altered.  His horror comes from his reaction to their religion as it opposes his strict Christian upbringing.  It's not some other-dimensional world or living hell or anything like that; he simply arrives at an island under a false assumption of what goes on there, and ultimately learns the very real, and very human, truth.  GREAT film, by the way.  Those of you who haven't seen it, avoid the Nicolas Cage remake (or, if you've already seen that one, do your best to forget it) and check out the original.

Re: I need some help choosing Genres for movies

Sub genre: Torture porn?

Re: I need some help choosing Genres for movies

i didnt think 'torture porn' was suitable since everyone considers movies differently. some think SAW is torture porn and i completely disagree. so i took the easy out and did a sub genre of torture and you can guess what films it features smile
