Alright. Let’s say you’re taking a hike in the woods at night (which is already a pretty dumb move by itself), and you come across a small shack. Suddenly, you hear a loud creak. Now, I’m already halfway home and I’m sure you are too, but of course if you’re in a movie you just HAVE to investigate. No. Just… go home.
Why do movie characters just do this? Why? Like, I know it’s supposed to be the prompt to start off the movie (or else the movie would be a lot shorter), but can’t the directors give a better reason to investigate besides “curiosity”. Half of the movies in the horror movie franchise are usually prompted by “Oh no! So and so just died mysteriously! We better investigate!” No. Just prepare a funeral and move on. Even then. If so and so didn’t decide to take a hike in the woods at night, he/she would’ve been just fine.
Well that was my rant(not a very good one since I don’t watch a lot of horror movies). Tell me what you think.
