The classic teen horror movie usually has a very predictable plot but that doesn’t make them any less fun to watch. There are usually a couple of stereotyped characters including a hot but ditzy blonde, a nerd with glasses, an over-entitled jock, and a wise-cracking sidekick somewhere in the mix along with a brave heroine and of course, a deranged killer. The killer will pick the friends off one by one and as the body count rises it will seem more and more unlikely that anyone will survive to make a sequel. The location will be somewhere isolated and you can bet that no phone will work for the duration of the movie. But even though we know the stories we still can’t get enough of these types of movies. Even if the plot line is full of gaping holes (which they often are) we love watching the characters running around scared out of their wits for 90 minutes. If you’re a big fan of this genre of film then you’ve probably wondered what character you would end up as if you landed in one of these movies. Now you can find out once and for all who you’d be in a teen horror movie with this quiz!
