CS 320 Final Project: An analysis of Horror Movies

Ben Kizaric: bakizaric@wisc.edu

Inspired by a friend's love of horror movies, this project looks at over 4,000 titles, with information gleaned from IMDB, including ratings, budget, genre pairings and others. The plots I have included focus on the profitability of movies, critical evaluations from ordinary people and critics, release volume, and how these factors interact.

To get the data, I wrote a recursive web-scraper using Selinum on IMDB, one of the most popular movie cataloging websites.

Code, data, and charts are in the dev folder.
