This one needs all 1s and 10s to be 0-weighted.

Hi @alitanoad -

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.    

We are aware that there are people who may vote for the sole purpose of trying to inflate/deflate the rating for a movie. We have several safeguards in place to automatically detect and defeat this type of ballot stuffing: even though we count and display all unaltered votes in the rating breakdown, we apply several countermeasures against all attempts to skew the rating for the weighted rating you see displayed on the site. We will review the title in question to ensure that the weighted average is displaying as intended. 

For more information on our abuse detection methods, or details about IMDb ratings and weighted averages, please refer to our Ratings FAQ.

Further research reveals that this film has only been screened at some film festivals and on some US University campuses.


There is no evidence that the film has been released in theatres, on DVD/Blu-Ray nor is it available on any streaming platform.

It seems really unlikely that 1,500+ people could actually have rated the film on IMDb.
