What Is The Worst Decision Ever Made By A Character In A Horror Movie?

This movie would've been, like, 20 minutes long if y'all just moved out of the house.

Every single horror movie fan has experienced it: You're enjoying an excellent spooky film and then, out of nowhere, a character makes the absolute dumbest decision you've ever seen in your life.

Epic / CBS

You try and remain calm, but that proves to be physically impossible because WHAT THE HECK ARE THEY DOING? THEY MADE IT THROUGH THE WHOLE MOVIE AND NOW THEY DO THIS???

Rogue Pictures

So I ask you, horror fans of the interwebs, what is the absolute DUMBEST/WORST/MOST RIDICULOUS choice you've seen a character make in a horror movie?

Paramount Pictures

And I'm talkin' SPECIFIC examples of moments in horror films, so no "when they run up the stairs instead of out the front door" or "when they split up."

Maybe you think Tatum choosing to escape through a DOGGY DOOR IN A GARAGE in Scream was pretty darn ridiculous.

Dimension Films

Why are you like this?

Or perhaps it's the fact that the family in The Amityville Horror was just like "LOL I guess we'll stay in this dumb house until we die" after several violent and obvious signs of a haunting.

American International Pictures


Heck, maybe the most obvious answer is when literally ANY CHARACTER in the Evil Dead franchise chooses to read from the necronomicon OUT-LOUD like they're BRAND-NEW.

New Line Cinema

It's a book covered in gosh darn flesh, maybe read the room instead of the book, you idiots!

Share the horror movie moment that YOU believe is, objectively, the worst decision of all time and WHY you believe that in the dropbox below for a chance to be featured in a future BuzzFeed post or video!


Bonus points if you also add what YOU would've done in the scenario instead!
