10. Laurie Learns She Has A Brother in Halloween II
On the plus side, Laurie was able to more or less break the ice between her and her brother in the first film before she knew it was a family reunion. And after that, they both seemed to pretty clearly outline how their new founded relationship would play out – which unfortunately had more to do with stabbing than reminiscing about mom and dad. Between the first Halloween and Laurie’s hospital adventures, this is probably the worst two days anyone can have in a row.
9. John McClane Turns Into A Terrorist-Fighting Superhero in Die Hard
This movie is why I leave my shoes on all the time. You never know when a German will find advantage in your bare feet, and not just in the non-sexual way Hans does in this film.
Not only does Bruce Willis get a surprise terrorist party in this film – but it’s also what sets up the third film as well. In a single night he not only takes out a team of bad guys, but also puts into motion an elaborate game of New York riddlesplosions worthy of a Batman film.
8. Kate Learns That Vampires Exist The Hard Way in From Dusk Till Dawn
It’s best to ease into the realization that vampires are a real thing, especially in a universe where they have been commonly accepted as hogwash. Like, what are the odds that vampires would a) exist and b) exist exactly like Bram Stoker said they did. Also, they just killed your entire family and now you’re in Mexico. Sure, George Clooney is there, but he doesn’t want to hang out with you – which is almost the worst part.
7. Ash Becomes A Medieval Legend in Evil Dead II
In what starts as a fun and romantic trip with his girlfriend turns into a shovel decapitation in the same freaking night. Really, just cutting off your lady’s head and burying her is enough to be on this list, but that’s just night one. On night number two you have to fight an evil entity that sends you back in time to become some kind of chosen one and then you, my friend, have had a terrible weekend.
I have to say, Ash sure doesn’t hesitate at lopping off his girlfriend’s head in this film – so I’m gonna say that it was probably for the best anyway.
