TV and Movies·Posted on Sep 27, 201919 Horror Movie Clichés That We're All Very, Very Bored WithIf the walls of your house have a menstrual cycle, it may be time to move out.by Allie HayesBuzzFeed StaffFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink 1. People continue to stay in a cabin in the woods or an obviously haunted house long after weird stuff starts to happen. New Line Cinema I wouldn't stay in a well-lit, crowded restaurant if the walls suddenly started bleeding because I love myself. 2. Kids say creepy as heck things and their parents are just like, "LOL, okay." MGM I understand that ~kids say the darndest things~ but — if your child says there's a spooky man in her room, and then she suddenly has claw marks on her arms — maybe listen to her?! 3. People hear an odd noise and say, "Oh, it's probably just the wind!" Blumhouse Productions When did the wind ever sound like a 200-pound masked man breathing heavily behind you?! 4. Or worse, those same people proceed to "investigate" said sound, alone. Blumhouse Productions Did you NOT graduate from Kindergarten and/or see the first Toy Story? USE THE BUDDY SYSTEM. 5. People constantly answer doors late at night when people knock?! Who knocks anymore?! Rogue Pictures Also, in this day and age, who in GOD'S NAME just shows up to your house without contacting you first? Stop it! 6. And, on that note, those are always the same people who answer their phone late at night when they're not expecting a call?! Ambassador Film Pro-tip: Save money on your phone bill by avoiding absolutely everyone. 7. People allow inexplicably creepy dolls to live rent-free in their house. Warner Bros. Yeah, that's going to be a "No" from me, Doll. 8. People are always reading from old, skin-wrapped books written in dead languages that seem incredibly questionable. New Line Cinema Reading is fundamental, but context clues can save your life. 9. People completely ignore every awful thing going on around them to stop and have sex, no matter how terrible an idea it seems. Warner Bros. Pictures THERE. IS. A. TIME. AND. A. PLACE. 10. People limply hold a weapon in their hands while sobbing, instead of — oh, I don't know — running away?! Warner Bros. Pictures RUN, GIRL. HE GONE. 11. People run up the stairs when the front door is only, like, three feet away from them. Wild Bunch I refuse to run up stairs when I'm NOT being chased, why would I start when my life depends on it? 12. Or, people forget how to move like a normal human being when they finally decide to run out of the front door. Miramax Films Bend your knees, sweetie! 13. And, when people finally get outside, they run straight to their car without their keys like an idiot.* Universal Pictures *Get Out is, obviously, the only exception to this one. 14. People yell for help during moments when they should definitely be quiet for their own safety. Universal Pictures Why are you like this?! 15. And, when people DO finally get help in the form of the authorities — they're almost always completely useless. Galaxy Releasing Thanks for trying, I guess? 16. People trip over thin air as the killer is mere feet behind them. New Line Cinema I'm as uncoordinated as the next person, but come on. 17. Or worse, people trip, fall, then decide to just CRAWL the rest of the way instead of getting up and running more?! Glenn Watson/Rogue Pictures CARDIO. IS. YOUR. FRIEND. 18. People corner themselves for absolutely no reason by hiding under a bed or in a closet. Compass International Pictures Like my butt is fitting under a bed in the first place, LOL, okay sure. 19. And — last, but certainly not least — people suggesting that everyone "split up," which makes zero sense. Lionsgate This ain't Scooby-Doo, y'all. Which horror movie cliché did I miss?
