Characters in Horror Movies?

    Are they just not that bright to begin with, or is their panic making them loose all sense of rationality so they cannot spot the easiest things? I honestly can't tell.

    Well I'm not sure how rational you can get if you had a guy wearing a hockey mask wielding a chainsaw walking towards you to kill you.

    But yeah, would I don't think horror movies would be interesting if there weren't dummies for the killer to play with.

    I was watching Saw II and the protagonist enters room where he is given another challenge where he is suppose to rescue a man from a silo that was beginning to be filled with chopped pig. But the protagonist just stands there and waits for no apparent reason instead of running to get the key.

    It's the bad writing monster. It will attack just about any film but seems to have a preference for horror movies and porno.

    Yep. Bad writers.
