Pet peeve: a particular thing that annoys you every single time you encounter it.
1. Wrist Slitting
Alright kids, one last time; it's "down the road" and not "across the street".
2. Calling out "Who's there?"
Yup, this still happens. Don't ask for the killer to properly announce themselves; get the hell out of the house!
3. Women who leave their blinds open at night
Ladies, if you leave your blinds open at night, you're basically a beautiful fish in a fishbowl waiting for the next available crazy to come get you. They can see you, but you can't see them.
4. The token gay character
Newsflash: not all gay men are fishy, fabulous, flamboyant glamazons. They aren't all comedians and they have no interest in "turning" the token macho, hot guy. Let's start utilizing gay characters for what they are; everyday people.
5. The bad boob shot edit
So, your actress doesn't want to flash "the girls"? That's cool, but please take a little bit of care in the editing of that. When the scene goes from showing the actress' face to a close up shot of breasts that don't even have the same skin tone as the actress, and then back to our leading lady's face, well....it's just insulting.
6. Poor audio editing
Few things are as sad as when the reaction to a noise comes well before the noise itself. Unless I'm watching a poorly dubbed kung fu movie, this is opposite of amusing.
7. Kids who can't act their way out of a paper sack
Sure, it seems unusually cruel to call out children, but we've all seen fantastic performances from kids. So, when a child is supposed to be scaring me, but I can see that the actor is trying really hard not to smile, well, that is just unforgivable. Honorable mention to the child actors who can't seem to keep a straight face even when all they're supposed to be doing is sleeping.
Sherri Moon Zombie has an undeniably amazing booty. This, however, does not improve her acting skills. After so many chances given to her, why hasn't her craft improved?
9. Wrong score or song selection for a scene
Please do not misunderstand; I find the Ravenous score to be wonderfully sublime, but there is a very specific chase scene that has a hillbilly music vibe to it. This never fails to induce a giggling fit for me.
10. Falling down while running
I get it. You're flipping out. However, running is one of the most basic human functions, specifically, for escaping danger. Girl, pick your feet up and watch where you're going
11. Screaming "Help!" in the middle of the isolated camp site
Again, I get it; you're freaking out. However, you know darn well that no one is out there to help you and screaming simply makes it easier for the killer to locate you.
