Why do people in horror movies always go around exploring dark houses for monsters without turning the lights on? Honestly, people, even if you DON"T think there's a monster (and no one ever does in these movies until it's too late), wouldn't it just makes SENSE to turn on a light so you could, I dunno, SEE STUFF?

Sheesh.


ETA: And since when do rooms in psych wards lock from the inside? Or rooms in hospitals in general?

Maybe they think it works both ways, and if they can only slightly-barely-not-really see the monster, then it can't see them? XD Most people in horror movies are just stupid.

Well, okay, yeah, maybe that'd make sense in some movies, like slasher flicks or something, but...

Well, okay, I'm watching this movie, Darkness Falls. It's sort of like the evil tooth fairy meets Freddy Krueger. Anyway, the kid has a 'nightmare' and the mom is all "Oh, honey, there's nothing here," and proceeds to walk through her house without turning a single light on. Not even a hallway light, or the light in her kid's bedroom, or the light in HER bedroom. No lights. WTF?

Exactly. And in this case, it couldn't get you if there was light. The kid survived after his mom got herself shredded by hiding in the bathroom with the light on. BRILLIANT!

Don't forget Predator, who can see in both infared and ultraviolet...
