About The Blog
From a Passionate Fan
Mainscream Blog is a passion project started in January of 2022 with the desire
to explain, discover, and disect one thing - horror movies. However, I can assure you
that I am not a film expert, I have never been to film school and I haven't seen all of the
movies that you've seen. Though, what I would like to believe will happen is that you
will read this blog, agree, disagree, ask questions, and discuss with me in the forums the
one thing you and I both love...
How We Review The Movies
I'll typically begin a movie review by addressing the trailer, it's strengths
and weaknesses, and how it changed the way I approached the film.
After this I'll give a brief summary of the plot.
Then I'll spill some of my thoughts of the movie as a whole
The most calculated part is next. I give it a quality rating (sampled below)
where I'll do a weighted decision making matrix. I'll decide
how important each of the six qualities (suspense, disturbance,
gore, plot twists, and jumpscares) are to the entirety of the film
based on a percentage out of 100. In some movies I may weigh more
on plot as opposed to gore and visa versa.
Later, I'll give concluding statements about how I ultimately felt by the end of the
movie and if it was worth watching.
Finally, I'll give you some information on the film you may have
missed, not understood, or are just interesting to know.
