…and what an honor! The first death of a horror movie is always the most memorable and the most exciting. It sets the tone for the entire movie, and sometimes the entire franchise. We thank you for your sacrifice.
You got: The hero!
Congratulations, you’re the star of this movie and you live! You’ve been through hell and back, but you managed to pull through — albeit exhausted and covered in blood. The bad news is that you’ve got at least two more movies to survive before you get a rest, and no one can say for sure if you’ll survive a trilogy. Good luck!
You got: The murderer!
Well well well, thought you could pull a fast one on us, huh? What a twist to discover it was you all along, offing teens left and right. You had your fun, but in the final scene you met your demise. The good news is that Freddy and Jason are waiting for you in hell. The bad news is hell doesn’t have AC.
You got: The slutty best friend!
…and you die about halfway through, but you probably knew that all along. Everyone knows that slutty characters never survive, which is totally unfair, but hey, them’s the ropes. At least you had fun while you were here.
You got: The wrongfully accused weirdo!
For a good chunk of the movie we were led to believe you were the murderer. You’re the geek, so naturally you were the first to be blamed when bodies started piling up. You might’ve made it through the first movie, but your fate is sealed for the sequel. Hopefully you go out with a bang.
You got: The jokester who keeps eluding death!
You subvert horror tropes because you know them so well. The killer would have a hard time offing you because you usually know what’s coming. Congrats on surviving, but there are no promises in the sequel.
