As a rule, horror movie heroes are usually either cunning and brave, or they’re tasked with an unenviable quest that they take on for the good of humanity. Unfortunately for some horror films, their protagonists aren’t as up to snuff with the whole horror hero thing as they should be. Sometimes you want Ash, and you end up with Ashlee Simpson. The worst horror movie characters usually spend more time screaming than they do anything else, let alone fighting the forces of evil. And the characters who aren’t yelling for a full hour and a half are usually drab, one note characters who make increasingly terrible decisions.
Thankfully, the worst characters in horror movies are like bad pieces of cake. Sure, they’re terrible, but at least they’re cake. Even when they’re making terrible decisions you know that it’s highly likely that they’ll pay for their idiocy in blood. Unless it’s just a terrible horror film, and if that’s the case then you need to switch up your Netflix queue.
