Why is it that in horror movies, the "victims" never go for the...

Why do they almost NEVER kick the "bad guy" in the crotch when they have a chance to get away?! I have seen so many horror movies where I'm like yelling at the screen, "Kick him in the nuts! Kick him!" I think I've only seen it maybe once, though. That's what I would do if I was being attacked lol.

  • I'd kick him in the nuts and then smash his head in and MAKE SURE HE IS DEAD before I run away. Stupid people just knock them down and then are SHOCKED when he is right behind them again...duh. Kill him right the first time stupids!! lol.

  • kicking someone in the nuts is considered to be letting yourself open.. once you lift your leg its easy for somoene to sweep your other leg or because you have uneven balance all they need to do is push your leg away etc.
    but why they dont.. i guess the same reason why they dont grab weapons or run in the right direction. its meant to make you get angry . in the end we all know what happens.. it sets you up to fail. but i still love horror movies, even though they can be corny . lol

  • LOL That's what I was going to say. Why upstairs? You're going to climb out the window? Go out the front door! What's funniest to me is when they go upstairs and pass the front door on the way. I'm not a big fan of horror movies though. My husband is big time into horror, so I have to watch sometimes.
