Horror movies are generally full of scenes of baffling mistakes that usually leaves us all making a blaspheming remark at the big screen. There’s no denying that horror movies would not be the same without these foolish stunts made by dull-witted, soon-to-be victims of a horrifying death scene.

A classic mistake made in almost every on-foot chase scene in horror movies.

Everything seems to be looking good and you look like you might get away, but like a complete idiot, you don’t actually look in the direction where you are running. This results in running straight back into the killer, tripping over and hurting yourself, twisting your ankle which allows the killer to catch up with you, or basically anything that ends in a fatality. You get the point.
