Honestly I don't even really consider Chronicle a superhero movie any more than I would consider I Am Number 4 a superhero movie. To me a superhero movie has more than just people with powers. Hell any vampire movie would fit that bill, or any of the Star Wars films. To me a superhero film requires at least some sense of an alter-ego, even if it's just a code name or some such thing as it is with the X-Men and FF. Some delineation between the character and their heroic persona.
