Top 10 Horror Movie Cliches
The Top Ten
Jamie Lee Curtis survived in Halloween because she was a virgin
You know your gonna die if you do it, so why do it?
So, sex is a death sentence in this sense? - BorisRule
NUDITY should never = death
Don't people in horror movies know anything about horror movies? - ishaantiwari
Its like scooby doo
Stay together, don't split.
Michael Myers in a nutshell.
In jeepers creepers to the black gym teacher was technically the first to die. It's racist
No its not, it's a horror movie, people die. Nobody complains when a woman dies and says sexist. Hell movies have to have the black character die by sacrificing himself so nobody pulls the race card. Its just ignorant - RustyNail
Spoiler Alert. Finally,
There is a black character in Jeepers Creepers 2 that actually survives!
Classic, what horror movie could be with out its ungraceful and uncoordinated victims?
Seriously, what kind of person would have two left feet? - DapperPickle
Oh, he's running, I'll just wait till he trips over that nothing
Scary movie is my favourite because it's a Pisstake on everything on this list
*cough* the Scream movies *cough*. - DynastiSugarPop
Ah, the Lewton Bus! Actually pretty clever and scary... for the 1950s. Come on guys. In 2014, this is a cliche mocking a cliche.
How about this, after you knock out a killer, kick him in the head, punch him, do something!
The most overused cliche in history that still gets us most of the time
Not even that scary true horror movies can make you get chills just with a creepy vibe. - diehardfan
It’s 2014, get something new for once
So predictable, Look at my list of Things A Slasher Movie Needs - only if you feel like it of course! - Britgirl
That's in a lot of the horror movies, do something new directors.
So true, Cujo, the killer dog.
Ever heard of Cabin In The Woods? Perfect example of this.
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
Possibly the biggest offender of this to a ridiculous number. - Swellow
Killers in movie don't have guns! - DynastiSugarPop
Police are just about as worthless as my ex-husband in most horror flicks. - mandi021174
You know your police department sucks when a group of average citizens stop the threat instead of them
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.
A little bit gender equality please? - BorisRule
"ohh a monster / serial killer is looking for me better hide somewhere obvious so he could kill me"
Yeah! Like that's gonna help! - ishaantiwari
Hide somewhere else! Or Go Outside, and run for your lives!
Yes like : DON'T DO IT OR I'LL SHOT!
In IT, the kids were actually really smart despite being called "The Loser's Club"
I hate this so much! It's annoying! To pay attention to detail, so it distracts me from the big picture...
It's always that one person who doesn't deserve to survives who survives. - Turkeyasylum
She usually has big boobs, perfect hair white teeth and its stupid
(Continent gets blown up)
Oh no that, it was just the wind - Protagonist - TwilightKitsune
In every zombie flick, the 11-year old girl becomes a zombie and eats her family. Yeah, we get it. If you always make the "undead preteen flesh-eater girl" why don't you make a movie where ALL the zombies are children!
There's a lot of horror movies I've seen the trailers for and the main characters for them are usually blond girls.
No you won't. You will be dead. - Ilovestephanie
Very true. We think it's them, but then it's always a plot twist.
