Best Horror Movies says Is there such a thing as justified homicide? Well, when it comes to horror films there certainly is. No one wants to see a picture’s most offensive, annoying or ignorant character make it to see the credits roll. They don’t deserve that kind of treatment. But sometimes it seems filmmakers really want to mess with our heads, leading the loathsome down a path of fortune. Do these characters really resonate on paper? Is this actor a friend of the director? These seem about the only logical reasons why you’d allow someone who – by all horror rights – should die a gruesome death make it all the way to the end.
