Reviews are based on a letter grade scale. 

A+, A, A- = A must see; an excellent genre film

B+, B, B- = Highly recommended; a well done genre film

C+, C, C- = Cautiously recommended; an okay attempt, but lacking in important aspects

D+, D, D- = Recommended only to die-hard genre fans; simply not a very good film

F = Avoid; no redeeming qualities

The specific film review will elaborate on the reasoning for the given grade.

If you are a filmmaker seeking exposure for your film, submitting a copy of your film to us is a great way to get your film some publicity.  With over 1800 Facebook fans currently and over 2500 hits a month (and growing), a review on Fright Meter is beneficial.   We will post our review within two weeks of receiving the film, conduct an interview with yourself and/or member of the cast if you are interested, and your film will be eligible for our annual Fright Meter Awards.
