What do you think about characters making stupid decisions in horror movies? Do you think it's an overdone trope? Because personally I actually think it's an overdone COMPLAINT… My argument in the defence of characters making dumb choices in the context of these films is that they're in extremely stressful situations and in such situations is it not human nature to screw things up? What do you think? I know a lot of people think it's a sign of bad writing and don't get me wrong it CAN be; A leniency on unbelievable actions and contrivances to get the plot to happen isn't exactly uncommon, but I do think there's a lot of good examples where the characters do show signs of stupidity but in realistic ways too though.

Anyway Here's a little short form video essay about how I'm sick of people always complaining about this trope that you can watch if the topic sounds interesting to you; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nUUaNisaoDc
