Just why do people make really really stupid decisions in horror movies?
I am sure you have noticed it too. It just boggles the mind and is so funny. Here are just a few situations and decisions I know you will recognize:
#1. Somebody is inside a haunted house. They are scared. There comes a knock on the door. THE PERSON OPENS THE DOOR.
#2. Somebody is inside a house. Somebody wants to kill them. The phone rings. THEY ANSWER IT.
#3. A monster is killing people left and right. Now they want to kill somebody else. They move towards the person. THE PERSON DOES NOT MOVE. So they die.
#4. Somebody is running away from somebody with a gun or a knife. They run UPSTAIRS, or UP A LADDER or UP INTO A DEAD END.
#5. A crazy murderer is looking for the last person alive in a house. This person HIDES IN A CLOSET or HIDES UNDER THE BED.
#6. A horrible monster is trying to get in a house. Somebody is still in the house. THAT PERSON STAYS IN THE HOUSE instead of running away out the back door.
#7. The heros stop at a deserted town. Nobody is around. There is a totally bad feeling about the whole place. They decide to get out of the car AND WALK AROUND.
And of course the best one:
#8. The terrible killing monster or murderer makes a noise. The person in danger WALKS TOWARDS THE NOISE.
I feel like shouting "No! No! Bad choice!" when I see these things happening. It does tickle my funnybone sometimes, and other times just makes me shake my head.
I loved this subject so much that I have made a NEW Squidoo lens page about it too. Here it is:
Horror Movies and Stupid Choices - (why do people make stupid choices in horror movies?)
I am sure you can think of another funny and very stupid decision in a horror movie. List it below!
