The Dumbest Moves Made By Every Horror Movie Victim

List of the stupid moves that every horror movie victim makes--the worst horror movie cliches. If you've ever found yourself yelling, "Don't run up the stairs!!" or "Get up!!" you know what we're talking about. These stereotypical moves made by victims in scary movies are usually so dumb that you start to think that they deserve their bloody ending. Stereotypical horror movie victims include the sexy girl and her lover, the helpful minority character, the overly curious guy, the macho man and the jokester. These people will all usually die in scary movies. Stupid mistakes made by horror movie victims range from underestimating how fast a killer can move to running into the woods rather than hopping in a nearby car.

Why do characters in horror movies split up? Why don't they get up when they fall? Why do women whimper softly when they are hiding by a nearby psycho murderer? If you get to the bottom of these mistakes, you just may be able to survive a horror movie.
