You may be able to tough it out with the best of the Final Girls, but would you want to survive a bloody massacre just to live with the Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder?
If you survive a bout with Freddy Krueger, every time you go to sleep you’ll just be waiting for the next round. If you can beat Jason, you may never again feel like you’re practicing safe sex. After Leatherface, you could never take the scenic route.
If I were in any one of these 5 movie situations, I think I’d rather just say no thank you, just kill me. Take me now and take me quick, because I sure as shit wouldn’t want to try and fight my way through.
In Asylum Blackout, a massive storm causes a power outage at an asylum for the criminally insane. This unlocks all the mechanical doors (great idea, guys), trapping a small group of civilian cooks with the disturbed inmates who have stopped taking their medication. Things aren’t looking good for the guys when their only safe haven is breached and they must attempt to make their way through the asylum to find outside help. Written by S. Craig Zahler (Bone Tomahawk), the situation is perfectly terrifying. Our heroes must navigate dark, winding corridors through half-empty cell blocks while trying to avoid sadistic criminals who are only focused on causing pain. No thank you.
Claustrophobia is bad enough, but being trapped in the deep, dark underground with an unknown number of insidious cave-dwellers and a group of your best friends with no help in sight is just too much. Those creatures could be lurking around every dark corner, and you’re hopelessly lost in an unknown tunnel system. Who knows if there even is a way out. If you even do manage to escape, you have to live with the guilt of knowing that you’ve left your friends down there to be eaten. You’d certainly never feel comfortable in the world knowing that those things exist down there. And that’s if you actually manage to find freedom.
Being surgically transformed into a human-walrus hybrid is bad enough, but being forced to live that way is just unfathomable. Why would you ever want to survive that? No, God, no, why. That’s it, just kill me.
Speaking of horrible surgical situations that you wouldn’t want to survive, Human Centipede, amiright? Nope nope nope. I don’t think I need to go into my reasoning here, because it’s just a huge pile of hell no.
If the tentacle monsters, acid-shooting giant spiders, and flying death bugs don’t convince you, maybe the maniacal religious fanatics will. You sure as hell wouldn’t want to be forced out into the great and misty unknown with those creatures around, but those bible thumpers might just stab you and toss you out anyways. If you do make it through, the future is bleak. Would those inter-dimensional hell beasts come back? Who knows. Have you witnessed the brutal deaths of all your friends and family? Sure thing. Would you live in constant terror with the knowledge of everything you’ve witnessed? Most definitely.
So, what would be on your list? What situation would make you shut down all hope? Tell us in the comments!
