9 Dumb Things to Say and do in a Horror Movie ...

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.

Go through the Door

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.

‘We’re Safe Now’

‘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.

‘the Government/army/authorities Will Rescue Us’

‘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.

‘if We Can Just Make It to the Store/my Cousin Joe’s House/the Mall, We’ll Be Safe’

‘if We Can Just Make It to the Store/my Cousin Joe’s House/the Mall, We’ll Be Safe’ You still haven’t got it. There is no safety in a horror movie. Someone always makes a fatal mistake and the zombies/virus/axe-wielding maniac gets in. Have fun trying though.

Fail to Check the Back Seat of the Car before Driving off

Fail to Check the Back Seat of the Car before Driving off This is dumb even for a horror movie character. Come ON! Of course the maniac is lurking there, so he can pop up when you think you’re at a safe distance!

Running in a Straight Line when Fleeing for Your Life

Running in a Straight Line when Fleeing for Your Life This is exactly what killers expect. Try zigzagging, because movie killers depend on their victims exhibiting predictable behaviour. Be mean and confuse them.

‘I Know What to do

‘I Know What to do I’ve watched the movies’. Oh, don’t come over all post-modern ironic on us. Nobody likes a smartass. You’re dead. RIP.

What do you love about horror cliches? Do you too sometimes sit shouting at the screen ‘Don’t do it! Oh, you idiot …’?

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

oh i think the SAW should be horrible too.When you seeing the truth of human's soul .It is pretty a bad influence for Children

They always try to use the landlines. Really? Do you truly believe the crazy-maniac was nice enough to leave the phone lines intact?

for number 8 you should add be a young pretty girl who is not a virgin. The really nerdy shy virgin girls always survive, or at least last the longest.

Where's the classical "We should split up!" ? Other than that, very true :)

Hahahahaha! Another funny post by Alison! :D I hate it when there is loud music and you expect something amazing to happen and nothing does! Also, when you think the bad guy's dead but he really isn't. Grrr.
