Here's a crazy idea: What if there was a horror movie where the characters didn't go into that abandoned mental asylum with a Ouija board to summon spirits? Or, maybe, a horror movie where everyone realizes that their cabin in the woods is totally a murder shack, and hightails it out of there in favor of spending spring break in Cabo? What if there was a horror movie where the characters weren't so stupid? Good news, we now kind of know with this (parody) trailer for HELL NO: The Sensible Horror Film. First, the official synposis:
Imagine a realm where the most horrifying terrors of the underworld emerge to wreak bloody vengeance upon any who… hmm? what’s that? you wanna go literally anywhere else? yeah, good idea let’s get out of here.
Unfortunately, HELL NO isn't a real movie (unless someone stars a Kickstarter for it right now...hint, hint), but that doesn't stop it from being pretty much the smartest horror movie ever. The characters are actually believable, for once! For instance, when a guy walks in and tells his roommate that he has the tape where if you watch it, you die in five days, his roommate doesn't stare wide-eyed and suggest they watch it—he takes a baseball to it and smashes it up into a million little pieces, as he should! Horror movies have been trying to convince us for decades that someone would actually watch that video, but no more.
