25.  Running through the woods trying to escape a madman/madwoman while all the time looking over the same shoulder and screaming.  This will cause one outcome your death.  If you always look over the same shoulder you are likely to go in circles so the slumbering axe welding madmand (Jason) can catch up easier.  Always looking back will also cause you to trip or run into trees.  And screaming is never a good thing when trying not to get caught.

28. seeing a closet door open up by itself and then going to check it out instead of grabbing a gun or weapon first.

Re: 101 Dumb Things Characters Do In Horror Movies

Deciding to have sex knowing that there is a killer out there. I mean every body knows that once that happens the blood leaves the guys brain and he is incapable of thought or the ability to flee.
And with the looking behind you when you are running Don't! as you move slower when you do this plus you turn around and fall over a log or hit your head on a tree, which would not have happened if you had looked where you are going.

"The Strangers" had so many moments of the protagonists acting stupid, it was hard to keep count. The funniest one however was when they decided to jump out of their truck which did turn on (miracle of miracles) and corner themselves in a cabin! WTF? They did this because one of the bad guys was standing in front of their car. Personally, I would have run that crazy bastard down! wink

39 Never listening to the woman. She says that she hears a noise, that she has a strange feeling. So listen to her, these are called instincts
40 And listen to the animals especially your dog. If you don't hear birds in the forest-Don't enter
If your dog is barking and running around -He/She is trying to warn you-RUN!
