Thoughts on horror movies

Mick and I like to watch a lot of horror movies in October. It leads me to question things about people in such films:

Question 1. Why the hell do you insist on staying in that house/apartment/wherever you are that's threatening your very existence?
Question 2. Furthermore why do you insist on staying put to solve the burning mystery presented to you or to confront whatever or whoever it is haunting you? Couldn't you, say, go somewhere else and try to solve it from afar? Or perhaps hire someone else to solve it for you?
Question 3. Why do you also insist on going into dark areas when it is dark out? Don't tell me it's because you want to investigate what's going on as I will immediately re-direct you back to Question 2.
Question 4. At what point did it seem like a good idea to take that short cut or go off the map? Or accept help from the person who gives you a slightly eerie feeling but hey, why not trust them anyway?
Question 5. How come zombies don't gain weight after all of those people they eat? Are people low in calories and fat? Come to think of it, you don't often see overweight cannibals...
Question 6. Are there really inbred back-wood hillbilly freaks around in the middle of the woods? Should the government maybe be looking into this seeing as how they apparently lure idiots dump enough to go off the map--oh, wait a minute. You went off the map so it's your problem now! OK, false alarm, government. Go about your life-ruining business.

It's interesting you bring up people being low in caloric value because we used to talk about tawny eating souls and how they were low in calories except for dylans, from tempting too much bbq...maybe we were on to something
