Horror Movie Mix and Match

House at the End of the StreetThere are a few things that anyone well versed in the horror genre probably knows by now. For one: the great deal you snagged on that beautiful house in the remote countryside is too good to be true. Another: that getaway spot you found with your eclectic (yet mutually idiotic) bunch of college chums is not exactly the best place to vacate for the weekend. Furthermore, the ominous words of warning doled out by the strange, occasionally malformed village pariah should be heeded. The list goes on: don't touch that mysterious artifact, never split up, and always make sure the killer is dead. And the most important thing to remember: it is invariably not just the wind... except maybe in the case of Bruce Campbell's Tornado!.

We love the horror genre because we know its rules. We've seen them play out time and time again. In fact, some horror films can be so formulaic that they actually wind up becoming almost exactly like other horror films. It gets to the point where two flicks are nearly interchangeable — at which time, it might be difficult to remember what scenes or subplots occurred in which movie. Sometimes, performances and specific details and elements might help to separate the movies in essence, but it can still prove challenging when questions are posed: "Did the axe-wielding zombie child avenge his vampire babysitter who was burned at the stake in The Undeadening's Revenge or Vengeance of the Living Death?" And no, those are not actual movies... but they could be... does anybody have Bruce Campbell's number?
