Top Ten Stupidest Things to Do In a Horror Movie

I made this list for people watching bloody stupid people doing stupid stuff so enjoy.

The Top Ten

1 Scream

Hate all of those people in horror movies who know they're in a haunted house and act like even a bone in the corner of the room scares them senseless. Man up! - PositronWildhawk

We don't have that smart characters in this type of movies. That's why they don't realize that they should NOT scream like crazy psychos - Magnolia

If you're hidden from a monster, screaming us the dumbest move. The monster will find you and a few minutes later, starting pouring salt and pepper on you. - AlphaQ

At least try not to die. Thank you. - Powerfulgirl10

3 Plead for Help

What the hell do you think begging for mercy will help you live?
Girl:oh there's a monster oh no don't kill me I want to live

Nobody hears you,their at beaches drowning theirselves and running from the cheese snowman - Nateawesomeness

4 Hear a Noise and Go to See What It Is

Especially if you think something horrible is going wrong. Seriously, you're in the woods/ haunted house/ basement. People have been disappearing laeft and right with no explanation. You hear a monster growl/ footsteps. Common sense tells you to GET THE #@&! OUT OF THERE! What do you think this is, Scooby Doo? Don't worry, you have NO obligation to go investigate. No one's going to blame you for being unable to scare off an immortal demon. Leave that to the police. Unless you're packing some serious firepower, GTFO.

If you hear a noise the smartest thing for a person to do is run the other way. - egnomac

Um hello WHY ARE YOU GOING THE WRONG WAY?! They could get killed geez get a brain people! (in the movies! )

Just stay still, and you won't die (well, you might.) - Powerfulgirl10

Anytime people have sex in horror movies they die. - egnomac

Not always but in horror films this "thing" became a cliche - Magnolia

No! Having sex in a horror movie makes it more thrilling

At least you wont die a virgin. - DapperPickle

6 Open the Creepy Door

Girl in a haunted house: HELLO! I'M LOST!
(Sees creepy door)
Girl: it looks creepy, and this could cost me my life, but, I'll open it anyway.
(Monster pulls her in)
Girl: AH
This wouldn't happen if she just left the door alone. Did you expect diamonds in there?

Me: This door looks creepy.

Oh no, don't open it, HE WILL KILL YOU.


Opens the door and dies

Moron - CastlevaniaFanboy128

You are just asking to die if you do this

I bet the person wants to die if he/she does this. - Powerfulgirl10

7 Hide Under the Bed

It doesn't take a genius to figure out that if someone runs into a bedroom and you can't find them, they're OBVIOUSLY under the bed. Even a child would know they simply didn't disappear into thin air.

Why don't you hide under your coffee table while you're at it?

That's the first place they'll look!

Don't,their is gum under it - Nateawesomeness

8 Kill Your Only Friend

Your friend could've been in the FBI! He could've been on the show Ghost Hunters! I don't know but, your friend could be really smart with that stuff and you kill him/her? YOU'RE A STUPID IDIOT - maddyparrot22

As if there is going to be a door there - shfydgi
