There’s something about a good slasher flick from the 80’s and 90’s and despite the many, many flaws found within the movies they can be a fun distraction. The flaws are part of what makes these movies so much fun and most horror fans aren’t there for the plot and continuity anyways, they’re there to see the creative kills, to be scared and for the shock of the whole thing.
When it comes to horror movies, especially those of the slasher variety hailing from the 1980’s the cliche that we always seem to get is that of the victim trope. You know, the person you see in the movie and immediately know that they’re going to wind up dead in some creative and disturbing fashion.
You have your jocks, the nerd, the cool kids, the loner, the non-believer, the bully and of course the promiscuous individuals. It seems no matter which horror movie you find yourself immersed in the chances are you’re going to run into one of these types of characters and you’ll almost always be able to tell that they’re going to die soon.
Watch Mojo has noticed this as well and they have compiled a list of the top ten types of horror movie victims you’re most likely to encounter.
What do you think of the list? Any victim types that are missing? Let us know in the comments below.
