12. Horror movie pet peeves.

I liked the Ring and Ringu as much as the next guy and when its done good I like the Japanese style of horror, but for the love of god can we please quit ripping off the whole "scary ghost girl" cliche. I also hate how a lot of horror movies are just bad pornos with violence. Give me a story, give me characters that make me care whether they get a knife stabbed in them, give me real scares not just gore. Here is an example, the movie Joshua was about a 9 year old boy who was a sociopath, it was really well done, intense, and very creepy, but not gory. Or a different example, Cabin in the Woods, while not scary was very entertaining and I actually liked the characters.
