2Can't run and fall after stumbling on virtually anything

Classic, what horror movie could be with out its ungraceful and uncoordinated victims?

Seriously, what kind of person would have two left feet? - DapperPickle

Scary movie is my favourite because it's a Pisstake on everything on this list

3Stuck in the middle of nowhere

So predictable, Look at my list of Things A Slasher Movie Needs - only if you feel like it of course! - Britgirl

4The killer seems immortal at first, then dies really idiotically

Michael Myers in a nutshell.

5Not checking to make sure the killer is really dead

How about this, after you knock out a killer, kick him in the head, punch him, do something!

6Nudity=Death

You know your gonna die if you do it, so why do it?

7Authorities can't do diddly squat

Police are just about as worthless as my ex-husband in most horror flicks. - mandi021174

8Car not starting when trying to get away

That's in a lot of the horror movies, do something new directors.

9Black guy always dies

In jeepers creepers to the black gym teacher was technically the first to die. It's racist

Spoiler Alert. Finally,
There is a black character in Jeepers Creepers 2 that actually survives!

10Teens (Or, Big Red Targets With Human Bodies)

The Contenders

11False scares for first half of the movie

Ah, the Lewton Bus! Actually pretty clever and scary... for the 1950s. Come on guys. In 2014, this is a cliche mocking a cliche.

12Using knives instead of cool guns

No, the guns are annoying. Loads of movie cliches about them. Sometimes they never run out of bullets, sometimes everyone's such a bad shot that you're safe if they aim at you, and sometimes they point a gun at you but don't shoot. With knives, you don't get any of these cliches. Unless they point it at you without attacking. - PositronWildhawk

13Hiding under beds like children

Hide somewhere else! Or Go Outside, and run for your lives!

14A slut, jock, nerd, and virgin

Ever heard of Cabin In The Woods? Perfect example of this.

15Jump scares

The most overused cliche in history that still gets us most of the time

16Everyone dies but the hero
17Welcome to Camp Clichè Horror!
18Women are always the survivors

I don't care if it is apparently woman-hating if they weren't the survivors, its already man-hating so they are being so ironic. I don't mind that woman are survivors, but ALWAYS when they mess up they SOMEHOW still survive but if the men went through the same situation they will SOMEHOW always die.

19Terrible Acting
20Stupid soul searching
