Question about film rating

I understand that imdb has to calculate the weighting of scores to balance out artificially high votes from friends and family etc. but I feel the process has been too harsh in the case of my film The Lookalike (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0482541/combined).  One day I got 46 votes of 1 out of 10, and just today I had 24 high votes deleted, dropping my score even further.  I find it hard to believe that these were spontaneous actions by random imdb users who just happened to make their decisions on the same day.  Could you kindly review the voting history for my film.

Kind regards,

This is a known problem:

IMDB has implemented some things to take the sting out of this, unfortunately, all those 1 star votes pushed you over 100 votes so the regular voter weighting has kicked in dragging the score down further than they would before.
