People act stupid in horror movies

One of my buddies complains about how stupid people act in horror movies.
Come on, horror movies would be so boring if people didn’t act stupid in them. Only stupid people are going to get separated or open doors that they shouldn’t.
Stupid people also die a lot better in horror movies. When smart people die it is very boring or vanilla.
But when stupid people die it is always entertaining. You will see people on roller blades flying straight into a gigantic moving fan. Or you will see a guy running away from the killer and then wind up in a room just stuffed full of knives.
No one wants to see a horror movie where the characters act smart. There is nothing fun about seeing people sticking together in a group or competent cops catching the killer right away.
