We all love watching horror movies. Well, most of us anyway. Isn’t it funny though how you can predict all that is about to happen in the movie? If they are that predictable, how come they are so scary?
There’s a very hot debate going online at the moment, talking about the lesions we learn (or at least should learn) from scary movies.
Most of the movies follow a pattern. A person hears a noise in the basement, go to check on it and find that the electricity mysteriously goes out, and now instead of being aware of something being fishy, they will definitely go down to see what is happening. Oh, and don’t forget the eerie, bone-chilling, tension-building music! Now, ask anyone and that is a disaster in the making. So how come they do it in movie after movie and people keep getting scared out of their skin every time?
Some things are just so simple. How can they NOT learn or better yet know any better?
Anyone with half an ounce of common sense would know that:
- When in danger or suspicious circumstances, For God's sake, stick together! No, first sign of trouble and one of the lot goes, ‘Hey, let’s split up!’ DUH!
- Reading a book of demon or summoning one aloud, even as a joke can never end well!
- If you find that your house is built upon or near a cemetery, had previous inhabitants who went mad, died in some horrible or who performed satanic practices, get the hell out!
- When your friend is being ripped apart by the deadly forces of evil don’t just stand there, watch in horror and decide to run when the killing is over. Just RUN!
- And oh, pleeeeease, if you suspect anything or anyone fishy or suspicious in you vicinity, DO NOT ask them who they are!
We’re not alone, here’s what people online think:
