Because the outdated saying goes, curiosity killed the cat.
Within the case of horror motion pictures, you’ll be able to substitute stated cat with individuals, with mankind, or, in some excessive circumstances, with common existence as we all know it.
Whereas so lots of the terrifying acts seen in horror motion pictures can usually be chillingly put right down to randomness or being within the unsuitable place on the unsuitable time, there are these different terrifying acts that occur as a result of individuals could not assist however give in to their very own curious nature.
On this occasion, brutality and/or demise may’ve been prevented if a personality had merely not been so nosey, had not been so intrusive, had not been so eccentric, and had not been seeking to shake issues up and stir the pot.
The world of horror cinema is brimming with such circumstances, with quite a few characters getting themselves right into a pickle merely as a result of they wished to discover one thing new or push the boundaries of curiosity only a smidge too far. And it is on these buffoons that the eye is on right here, as it is time to put the highlight on ten horror figures who ended up struggling traumatic fates that would’ve simply been prevented in the event that they’d solely saved their nostril out.
From the Hatchet franchise’s Adam Inexperienced, 2014’s Digging Up the Marrow places Inexperienced in entrance of the digicam as a fictionalised model of himself as he units off to make a documentary about paintings that includes monsters.
As soon as Inexperienced will get a name from retired detective William Dekker (the ever-brilliant Ray Clever), he decides to change the main target of his movie to Dekker and his claims of getting proof that monsters actually do exist.
As Digging Up the Marrow progresses, we, just like the Inexperienced character, are left in two minds over whether or not or not Dekker is telling the reality or if, as a substitute, he is some unhinged loon determined to get a while within the highlight.
Sadly for Adam Inexperienced and his curiosity in monsters, Digging Up the Marrow sees him and his cameraman aggressively assaulted by some unknown creature, with the pair left working for his or her lives. By the point the film ends? We’re proven Inexperienced being attacked in his dwelling by a monster, as the image wraps up and leaves his destiny ambiguous.
After all, the priority of anybody going monster searching ought to at all times be what precisely would occur must you achieve success in your hunt.
