Dawn of the dead.

I didn't want to post, but Miranda has spoken.
Where are my rights I ask? Where? Wait...wait....Miranda rights! Anything I say can and will be used against me in a court of law!
Fuck it.
I've been on a horror flick kick since Halloween. I've watched just about every worthwhile horror/gore flick out there, and some very VERY not worthwhile. I'm open to recommendations, and I have a few also.
So this is my question.
If my life is the horror flick. Would viewers be yelling, "no you stupid bitch, don't do that, nobody that does that survives, just hack his head off, you're not really going to do that are you? Jason isn't dead, what are you going back (to school) in the barn for? Just run."
Or would viewers be saying, "dude, this chick might actually survive. This movie sucks, is she actually going to survive? Chicks with a brain attached are so lame. I want my money back."

    We've been on a horror kick too around here! The very first horror movie I saw was the original "Dawn of the Dead" with Sidney Potier. Scared the shit out of me! I loved it!~ I think I was like 10 or so.

    It would be nice to have a good scary movie where folks actually have brains. Why does it have to be so easy for the producers and writers?

    Holy HELL, I finally got this comment section to work -- 15 page hits later.

    What was the question? Shit. Damn Blogger!!! Damn them to HELL!!

    Oh, I remember. Let me wipe the froth from my face first.

    In scarey movies, they never kill off the attractive woman whose character is developed and deep. Therefore, you will not be written out of the script -- unless the writer is a sick, twisted sadist, of course. So on the whole, you have about a 98% chance of emerging victorious at the end, even though you walked down the dark hallway in the basement to find out what was behind the cellar door.

    eek. i've got goosebumps.

    Stupidity is to horror flicks what nudity is to pornography. You can't have one without the other. If everyone has their clothes on in a porn, it fails its mandate. If people aren't stupid enough to enter the forbidden place that is well-known to be built on an ancient Indian burial ground, then where's the horror?

    Personally, I'll take pornography. I prefer guaranteed nudity over guaranteed stupidity any day. (Not to mention the fact that horror films tend to be cheap comedies more than anything else... at least, I usually end up laughing my ass off that they were actually serious with this thing).

    Har dee har har. Like I never heard that one before. Actually the worst was this awful nun who taughed HS government. Still hate her fifteen years later. That makes me old.

    My oldest has taken to watching total crap. Like the daytime stuff on SciFi, emphasis on the Fi. Today, he totally believes in demonic possession because it said so on tv. He saw proof. Screaming in 5. 4. 3. 2 Aaaahhhhhhh!!

    Then we watched Amityville Horror. Stupid. Then I looked it up and just more utter stupidity. Kind of proves Dave's point though.

    I´d put my money on the chick surviving. In the B Movies there is always one chick that survives at the end, and I have a strong suspicion it´s going to be you. :)

    As Executive Officer of The Society to Get People to Update Their Blogs, it has come to my attention that you haven't written anything new nigh unto a couple of days or so.

    Be advised that my level of boredom and irritation with my job is at an all-time high today, and I need your comic relief.

    Sincerely,
    Ex. Off. GPUTB
