Ahh, yes. Common sense. The bugaboo of an entire subgenre of horror. You're camping in the woods with a bunch of people, only to discover that you share the woods with a ax murderer. Which do you do:

a) gather a lot of wood as a group, then build up the fire and stay around it all night armed with the biggest sticks you can wield (or better weapons if someone has any)  If the ax guy shows up and is stupid enough to attack, you gang up on him with those big sticks.

b) split up and go off individually in the dark to look for the guy with the ax?

c) Get the hell outta there NOW, moving as a group, and reschedule the camping trip after they've caught the ax murderer.  Cheesy  (In the event of flat tires, stalled cars, etc., revert to option A for as long as necessary to fix the problem.)

:::snort/giggle::: I didn't realise how dumb what I did one night was until I had a bit of a rant about it. I'm pretty certain I mentioned it somewhere, but I can't remember where. Long story short, SO is amazingly noisy if he comes home drunk. He could wake the dead. Thought I heard a noise one night, but it was so quiet I figured he hadn't come home yet. Five minutes later I see the shadow of a person walk past my bedroom window. It's somewhere around three in the morning. I wanted to get Willow (dog) out of her crate, but if I opened the door and SO was standing out there quietly in the dark she'd have ripped his head off. So I snuck up to the front door, quietly unlocked it and threw it open and the light on, to see SO standing there blinking in the sudden light.

Man, was that stupid or what? I could be in a horror movie. In my sleepy haze I figured I could make it to the crate and let her out before "they" caught me. I just wanted to know if I had to get the dog out of her crate. I am so so stupid Tongue Cheesy And I'm one of those people that yells at the characters in horror movies, and then sarcastically tells the tv, well, it's your own fault now, who runs UP stairs to escape?

*Edited for Randallism. I don't think SO would have been standing there quitely. I'm not sure how one would do that

Not quite as bad as a friend of mine who tried to lock herself in her store -- alone -- with a guy who was trying to steal her purse. Fortunately, he got out before she could get the door locked. Her husband's reaction was classic.  He's 6 foot 6 inches and large framed -- a huge man who looks like he could bent iron rods for fun. "Honey, even I would not have tried that."

Why bother with the necronomicon when you can clearly just cast circle and call him? Lol :p

That is true, but if I know my Evil Dead as well as I should do then I'm pretty sure that the only person around Bruce who is safe in the event of a deadite uprising is.... Bruce. Everyone else seems to die or get posessed. Unless they're shoppers at S-Mart of course. That's because they think smart you see Wink

I do love a good scary movie although nowadays if I really want to scare myself... I watch the news!

Actually, now that I've thought about it I would have to say that The Stepford Wives is one of the scariest dang movies I've ever seen. The recent remake was even scarier than the original! Mrs. Wellington just gives me goosebumps the size of golf balls, Brrrrrr!  Shocked

Yes, I'm a movie nut and yes, I'm starting ANOTHER movie topic. This time I want to know: What movie scared you (badly).

House of Wax - The Vincent Price version. Lordy, that man could scare!  Shocked  His movies gave me nightmares when I was a teen for weeks.

Tossing out an idea - Vincent and M. Knight movies truly are "suspense" to me.  Not gore, not thriller, it's the "Surprise!" that really gets me in these movies.  (I was thinking about everyones alien comments from signs.  Once you know it is gonna show it isn't such a shocker.  Ya know?

When I was a kid, "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" scared the crap out of me when the villian starts melting, talking in a high screechy voice, and his eyes pop out of his head.  Also when one of the weasels dies and turns into a ghost and says "Bye bye."  Now I realize that the movie is a COMEDY.

OMG! I had totally forgotten about that one. It got me too, and I freaked out and wouldn't watch any more. I saw it again when I was older and was soooooo embarrassed that it had freaked me out. I'm such a dork sometimes  Cheesy

LOL! I found the spinning weasels a bit disturbing, too.

When I was a kid, there was a sketch on The Electric Company (PBS kids' educational show about reading) that featured an evil green lollipop that chased a little girl around the countryside. I had nighmares about that stupid lollipop! "Oh golly, this lollipop is following me." Creepy as hell.

The 'hauntings' related ones get me. 

Amityville Horror left me afraid to get out of bed for an entire night.  The Shining, was another bad one.
