We have all watched a horror movie or thriller by sitting on the edge of our seats. Whether it is the suspension of the movie or wondering whether one of you characters you got to know during the movie will get the axe from the killer.
But still after hundreds of thrillers or horrors, it still comes as a surprise when we see that character getting surprised by the killer and gets murdered or even a new character that’s introduced in the scene specifically to get murdered. It is however not that hard to spot the character that’s getting the axe next.
We may finally know the trick in to spotting the character who is going to die next. British performer Alasdair Beckett-King hilariously explained how viewers can spot the guy who is about to die in a movie in one of his funny videos. According to Beckett-King, the guy who suddenly appears for only once scene and who is usually working class, has a wife and kid at home, and is someone who enjoys talking to the other guys on the job, and someone who usually ignores the mysterious shadow in the corner or at the far end of a tunnel, is usually the one getting murdered.
Another thing that you can pay attention to is whether the guy is in a dark place and using a flashlight. At some point the flashlight will stop working when it is most needed.
“OK sure, sometimes I get a little distracted, talking to the new guy on the radio or..noticing a weird shadow at the end of a tunnel. Now, in that situation, what you wanna do is assume it’s kids and start yelling at ’em …Now by this point, your flashlight will probably be flickering. And if you’re really unlucky, some kind of goop might get on youNow…In that situation, under no circumstances, look up. I can’t stress this enough! DO NOT LOOK UP!”
