IMDb -- The Amusement Park is listed as "horror" but it is not a horror film

Attempted to remove the genre "horror" from The Amusement Park so that it is defined as THRILLER and DRAMA. But my request was declined. Tracking #220925-235729-415000.

It is well known that this film was created as a Public Service Announcement for elder abuse. It was directed by a known horror film director (George A. Romero) and it was purchase by a horror film distribution company (Shudder), but it isn't a horror film. It was never intended to be a horror film by the director... Shudder is just using the director's name to sell this film as being a "horror" movie.

Here is a link to the Wikipedia article about the film... no mention of the word "horror" -- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Amusement_Park

Here are IMDb reviews of the film in which people admit it is not a horror film -- https://www.imdb.com/title/tt9270362/reviews

Here is a Rotten Tomatoes "critic" (lol) review saying its not a horror movie -- https://bloody-disgusting.com/editorials/3667244/review-george-romeros-the-amusement-park-unsettling-educational-film-historical-achievement/


Here is a Daily Dead article where the first line says its not a horror movie -- https://dailydead.com/review-george-a-romeros-the-amusement-park-is-an-unsettling-reminder-that-nothing-can-stop-the-horrors-of-old-age/


Here is a Cultured Vultures article that says its a PSA not a horror movie -- https://culturedvultures.com/shudder-the-amusement-park-2021-review/
