9 Of The Stupidest Decisions Ever Made In Horror Movies

- Page 1

Who doesn't love a good old-fashioned horror movie? Whether or not someone will admit it, everyone loves to be scared every once in a while. That being said, some movies are far scarier than others, and some are even downright cheesy and stupid.

But the worst thing about your basic horror movie is when a character makes such a stupid decision, a decision that you know is not going to end up going well, when all they had to do was avoid the situation all together...

It happens in virtually every scary movie, but there are some offenders who are just plain old dumb. Here are 9 of the stupidest decisions ever made in a horror movie.

1. Hiding in the closet. - The Skeleton Key

We couldn't find the exact clip, but if you remember the movie, it actually was a pretty creepy movie with a decent story. At one point Kate Hudson's character decides that she is going to hide in the closet as if no one is going to look there for her.

2. Why did you watch the tape? - The Ring

You all know the scene. The young boy hears his parents arguing about the video tape that can kill people (which for some reason they left within his grasp), and instead of being a good kid, he seemingly decides it's a good idea to watch it anyways.

3. Checking the pipe. - Jeepers Creepers

I loved this movie. Sure it was cheesy and it didn't make sense at certain points, but the major question I want answered is: why in God's name did they have to check what was down that pipe? They could have just kept driving and all would have been well in their lives.

4. Trying to use the doggy door. - Scream

It takes a special kind of person to attempt to escape from a maniacal serial killer by trying to squeeze through the doggy door. Now that I think about it, who has a doggy door in their garage door?

5. Going back for the cat. - Alien

I know some people are completely irrational when it comes to their pets, but going back for a random cat while you are trying to escape from a deadly alien tying to kill you... stupid is one word that comes to mind.

You would think common sense would eventually come into play...

It's Been Over 20 Years Since 'Space Jam' Came Out, But What Ever Happened To The Monstars?

Since the Looney Tunes started, they have been able to bring together the entire world with their hilarious cartoons. Whether we were watching Bugs give a haircut, Wile E. Coyote chase the Roadrunner, or Sylvester go after Tweety, there were infinite possibilities and all were entertaining. But one story really beat out the rest as the most memorable, and that was Space Jam. You might not think that a silly 90s movie about basketball could top decades of cartoons, but guess what, it was pretty freakin' awesome if you ask me. Warner BrosSpace Jam came out in 1996 and it

20 Movies From The 90s That Still Make You Sob Uncontrollably

Watching movies was the ultimate treat on a weekend. Our parents would let us help them pick out the best movies possible at Blockbuster and we would watch it all together. But as we got older, we didn't want to just rent whatever cartoon had come out that week. We wanted to watch something new and exciting. We wanted our parents to think of us as young adults now. We weren't children, we were capable of understanding complicated emotions. The problem was, we were not ready for the levels of emotion these movies gave us. I remember the first movie

'Free Willy' Came Out 25 Years Ago, But Where Is The Star Of The Movie Now?

Watching Free Willy as a kid made us all appreciate whales a little bit more than we did. We didn't realize what it was really like for the animals in those amusement parks, and while it was a fictional story, it was sad to see. But luckily, Jesse was there to stop the evil plan that was put in place to drain Willy's tank so the amusement park owners could claim the $1 million insurance money. Jesse helps Willy escape, of course by using a super high jump that of course we all remember as the most iconic scene of

'A League Of Their Own' Is Coming To TV And We're Hoping It's A Home Run

We all learned that there was "no crying in baseball," but apparently there is a lot of laughter, because A League of Their Own is coming back, but this time as a half-hour sitcom! The classic 90s movie about the baseball league that was created during the second World War stole audience's hearts, and they are hoping that there are still a few home run stories to tell with a new show. It's kind of a reboot, so I get it if you're hesitant, but even if you don't like the new show, there's always the original movie to go
