HELL NO: The Sensible Horror Film

For anyone who's ever seen a horror film, there's always some moment where a character makes a stupid decision that puts them in immediate danger. It's always some sort of "Don't go in there!" or "Are you kidding me?" kind of situation. Thankfully, Austin resident Joe Nicolosi has decided to put an end to all the horror stupidity by crafting HELL NO: The Sensible Horror Film. Basically, imagine a horror universe where the characters make smart decisions, do exactly what the audience thinks they should do, and avoids all terror and danger. There's no Final Girl, because it looks like everyone is going to survive.

Here's the trailer for Joe Nicoloski's HELL NO: The Sensible Horror Film, found via SlashFilm:

Okay, so this isn't a real film that's coming out. One might imagine that unless this was a straight-up parody, this would get pretty boring after awhile. And that's why horror films have all those familiar tropes that drive people mad, but still provide so much entertainment. Since this little video came from Austin, you'll see some familiar faces from the SXSW Film Festival circuit, including some of the actors from films like Zero Charisma and Grow Up, Tony Phillips, not to mention Zack Carlson, who used to be a big part of the Alamo Drafthouse. Is there any chance this could spark an idea for a feature length horror film spoof?

Is there a chance this could spark an idea for a feature length horror film spoof? I remember seeing a comedian talk about horror film characters acting stupid a few years back. I thought a good franchise to explore that would be a Scream sequel/reboot, they could do something similar in the opening scene, where the person in the house being phoned does sensible things like call the police, take a pistol and wait somewhere safe for help, when the police arrive they notice the (would-be) killers and Taser them.
