Like clowns, there is something horrific about taking an innocent child and making it do something weird and off-putting, like singing nursery rhymes while someone’s getting decapitated ten feet away. The norm and definition of humanity, as defined through systemic racism and white, hetero-patriarchal power, is a white man. It may be because most people in the audience identify with the shy character. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. It still pops up every now and then but is mostly remembered from classic horror films like Halloween (1978), Friday the 13th (1980) and A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984), and it is effective because it prays upon the psyche of the young adults watching the film. Be careful, though, the only things that go in the Main namespace are tropes and should be created through the YKTTW system. The demonologist spares the audience a lot of tedious plot development by summarizing the monster’s origins. This one is very popular. Evil dolls have figured prominently in films such as Annabelle: Creation, Dead Silence, and all the Child’s Play movies. Weather it’s a haunted house or dilapidated hospital, horror films love putting characters in creepy abandoned places. The norm and definition of humanity, as defined through systemic racism and white, hetero-patriarchal power, is a white man.

Lets take a look at how and why they are used and maybe inspire you to do things a little different. Yes, it does not make sense, but hey, it’s a creepy movie, not reality.

The typical horror movie requires a large amount of skill from its actors in order to be a great movie. Or running on the train tracks. But then you had to go out for a walk in the Nevada desert late at night, and even after you finally find your keys while a zombie is chasing you, you can’t get your car to turn over. I.e., not only does the demon leave, but everything heals instantly. Or just brush off people as crazy, but you know what happens next. There was the wise guy, the jock, the nerd, the cheerleader, and the shy girl who didn’t talk to anyone. When it comes to the characters in a horror movie, 7 cinematic standards seem to get the starring roles. RELATED: 10 Scariest 2000s Horror Movie Monsters, Ranked. Yet in classic horror movies it always seems that our characters find themselves in the middle of the road. For every really awesome, well-used trope in a horror movie, there are at least a few that need to die faster than someone who goes to investigate a strange noise. We think about what could have happened that drove the people away, what was life like before they left? How would someone really deal with that?

Perhaps the ultimate example of this trope is the great white shark in Jaws. Movies like Truth or Dare and The Grudge are undeniably eerie, this trope is still tired.

Let's say, hypothetically, you fell into a cheesy 80s horror movie. Time for a midnight snack. Because it would certainly be easier for one of us to kill the monster, defeat the paranormal ghost, or overthrow the serial killer — alone. In the end she is revealed to be the most intelligent and resourceful character and in the end usually finds the strength to defeat the killer. Then out of nowhere, the cyclops witch is back up and chasing you yet again! This one is such a common trope some might consider it integral to the genre maybe even a necessity. It's time to kill off the "running up the stairs from the killer" scene from modern horror movies. Again, the car started when it was parked in the driveway. Aside from Scream 4 twisting this trope with Jill's attempt to frame her boyfriend and become the next Sidney Prescott, none of them have been particularly successful. This feeling that there's constantly some kind of evil force, lurking behind every door and around every corner makes it hard to relax while watching the movie and causes us to grow more and more nervous with every scene.
