Horror Movie Rules For The 21st Century
Miss Murder is currently working on a new list of horror movie rules (patent pending of course). We all know about the "rules" as explained in the movie Scream, but that was back in 1996. It's 2014 now, and we need to put in the massive 'duh' stuff movie makers insist on putting in that make a lot of them so damned predictable.
MISS MURDER WANTS YOU!
If there is a situation that you see repeat itself ad nauseam (which Miss Murder just found out is a word so often misspelled by people that it makes you want to puke - ad nauseum apparently is incorrect), please post to either page (I Watch 'Em So You Don't Have To has a Google AND a Facebook page) and if selected, it will be printed (along with your name - all credits will be given to you) and the finalized list submitted to horror websites or, if it's funny enough, Cracked. Here are a few examples:
|His mother must be SO proud his picture is the first one on Google...|
|Nu-uh, this one's MINE!|
|Oh, right - you WISH it's gonna be with a hot chick...|
During my years on an ambulance I had a young man who was dead drunk (get it?) and going to the hospital for minor injuries from wrecking his car (it was either that or jail). On the way (we were rural, it was always at least a 40 minute trip) he stopped breathing. All I could think was, "I gotta do CPR on this guy and he's going to throw up all over me!" So I did the only logical thing - I slapped him in the face. Hard. He came to and started to cry. Funny, I don't feel bad about that at all. I don't recommend that particular method though - especially if there are family members watching.
This list will be compiled with all aspects of present horror movie dumbity so if you have an example, simply give the dumbity a name and explain how it is in a lot of horror movies you have seen in the last, oh, say ten years. That should give us a lot to work with. If you wish it to be private, you may submit it in a private message on the Facebook page.
So have some fun and get your dumbity on!
