    Most of these have reasonable or rational explanations. Just because you think you wouldn't do it, that doesn't mean it's stupid.

    definately dumbest has to be in that saw movie when the guy didnt listen to the whole tape about the glass coffin

    Dude, the guy from "Jeepers Creepers" was also in "Drag Me To Hell." Gods this guy is a freaking mess in the horror movie industry. Though, to be fair, he does look like a good "dumb idea" character

    Pet semetary (1989)
    The movie was about a family of four who moved in to a small house in the country side. The road infront of their house had idiotic speeding truck drivers going on it day and night. The family had a mother, father, one girl, and one little boy, and a cat named church. The daughter of the family discovered a path nearby the house and their old neighbor offered to bring them there. When they went, they found a place called the "pet semetary" (roll credits. Lol) made for all the dead pets in the area built by the pets owners. Church died one day and the neighbor and fathwr of the family had to bury it. The older neighbor made the 1st dumb choice. He brought the father to a 'special' burial place and next thing you know, the cat is back and alive the next day. The father is amazed. But the cat acts different and more violent. Then, unfortunately, the poor baby boy of the house got killed by another truck driver. And because the cat came back, the father thought the same could happen to his son. However, the old neighbor told him that the a human was once buried there, but he pretty much came back as a zombie and nearly killed his family. The father, being a heartbroken idiot, he dug up his sons grave and reburied him in the 'special' graveyard. That was the 2nd dumb choice. Because after his poor son was resurrected, the child killed the neighbor, the mother and then lured the father over. In the end, the father made one last stupid choice. He killed his son and the undead cat, but he burried his dead wife in those grounds thinking its a good idea to bring her back after what his son did. She ended up coming back and killing him. Pretty much every character makes a dumb choice in that movie😒😒 pretty good tho since it wasnt made around these recent years☺

    I disagree with number 1, number one should be the scene from Alien Covenant where even after witnessing all the horror of the creatures, confirming that David is psycho you look into the egg like he tells you. THAT IS THE EPITOME OF STUPID!!! Only followed by them not confirming if the android who looks just like the one you had is your friend or not.

    I agree with the Saw trap one, is was a silly mistake, but Jigsaw did have gas pumping through the house, which made them delirious, confused and panicked. So she probably just wasn't really thinking when she reached for the antidote.

    Instead of trying to kill the It Follows monster why not just lead it to a public place and shoot it with a paintball gun call the cops and then it's out of your hands

    • Scott Dixon
      Scott Dixon Month ago

      +sportshistorybuff They might not want to kill it they might capture it or something, that's what I meant by out of my hands haha. Another way would be to lure it into a pit and then fill that pit cement because the creature can't phase through walls so this would imprison it forever or perhaps until you die of natural causes

    • sportshistorybuff
      sportshistorybuff Month ago

      Pretty imaginative suggestion, except for the fact that the demon ghoul is apparently indestructible, can't even kill it with multiple gun shots, so even covered with paint, what could the police do? Seeing it isn't stopping it unfortunately. If I'm wrong, and the entity is not invincible, your plan would allow the police/army to blow it to smithereens, though I would prefer running over it with a truck, backing up, running over it, backing up. Squish city!
