Oh, I love the predictability of many horror movies. Half the fun is knowing that most of the cast are destined to be dispatched in various gruesome ways owing to their total dumbness and lack of self-preservation. Here are some of the daft things these characters say and do.
1. Go through the door
You KNOW that the axe-wielding maniac ALWAYS lurks behind a door, but you´re still going to go through it, aren’t you. Not a smart move. It’ll be the last thing you ever do.

2. ‘We’re safe now’
Uh-oh. Famous last words if ever I heard them. Here comes the axe-wielding maniac to prove you wrong. Chop chop. Nice knowing you.

3. ‘The government/army/authorities will rescue us’
Have you never noticed that in horror movies, it’s always the survivalist nut who, well, survives, thanks to his arsenal of weapons and distrust of authorities. He’s got it sorted. The surburban types have no idea how to defend themselves, and are lucky to last five minutes. Which is admittedly a long time in movieland.
