Discussion - Best/Worst Horror Cliches
Horror films are known for being over indulgent and sometimes a little dramatic with the cliches and one could argue that such films are merely one recycled idea after another. Especially with writers/directors having such a hard time coming up with new ideas and studios being content with bringing remake after remake to the screen.
Saw burst onto the screen in 2004 with a completely new idea of terror. BUT, with six movies under it's belt and a seventh in the works, it gets a little tiring. I'm sure there are other films that "changed" the face of horror but we won't get into those in this discussion.
With all that said, tell me YOUR best/worst horror cliches. It can be anything you want, but it must be something that's just totally over used. For example -- running in the woods and OOPS he/she falls down -- for me that's almost the worst.
C'mon, what are you waiting for?? Join the fucking conversation!!
