To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Overall an excellent guide to horror cinema - diverse and comprehensive. The price is a bit much (and I know the publisher sets that, not the editor or authors, so nothing against them). But the volume is worth it.
