Horror Fan and Anxiety Sufferer’s Best Friend

I absolutely love this app! I’m a big fan of horror movies of all kinds, and it’s really helpful for me to be able to skim through any upsetting triggers within these movies to either warn myself beforehand or just avoid the movie entirely. I love horror but sometimes there are just certain themes that I’d prefer to avoid, and this app makes it so easy to find movies I like that won’t trigger an anxiety attack. The user interface is really easy and simple to use. I really like that there’s a section for comments so users can explain a little more about each trigger if needed. I love that you can pin certain triggers so that they appear at the top of the list on each movie’s page. This app is totally worth the $3.99 (the website works well too, but the app is so convenient and streamlined without the ads). I have to imagine this app would be helpful for parents as well in the case of selecting appropriate movies for their kids (there’s even a “is Santa spoiled?” question on each movie’s page). I’m truly thankful for this app and highly, highly recommend it.

Excited to Try

So far I love the app and the UI is intuitive. I like that it's pretty easy to find out what people think is appearing.

My only request would maybe be an auto filter option? So you can browse movie titles that you know will most likely be OK without having to go through each movie? Maybe having it be percent based, so if it's 5 yes and 95 no, it recognizes the discrepancy and allows it to be looked at closer? Whereas if it's 95 yes and 5 no, it recognizes that most people agree this trigger is there, so auto filter it. I think that would help the app be a staple in a lot of households. The app is convenient and helpful, but sorting through the 70+ triggers for multiple movies in a row can be tedious, so any way to filter faster would be great, especially when you don't know what to watch.

A Truly Appreciated App

I absolutely love and appreciate this app! I have always hated sitting through movies where animals are killed or abused gratuitously. I think animal killings and mutilations in movies are completely unnecessary, now, every time I want to watch a movie I can go into this app, pop in the name of the movie and find out if there are any dead animals or scenes were animals are killed or abused. I love being able to be forewarned so that I can absolutely not watch that movie. To me, this is one of the most helpful apps ever made.
