They are no best films in which to invest as it is whatever proves to be a commercial success. Traditionally horror films show a greater return on investment as they tend to be lower budget productions, and have a captive, albeit limited audience.

The potential success of any film relies on a number of factors, including script, cast and then the critical reviews and marketing spend by the distributors.

Ideally an investor should invest in a slate of features covering different genres and budget levels, to maximise the prospects of a healthy return.
