This week, Dave, Neil, and Joanna debate what is the worst decision ever made by a character in a horror movie. But first, they discuss the listeners’ third win in a row on last episode’s poll (1:42). After that, they talk about Jordan Peele’s latest movie Nope, and if they would survive a horror movie (4:10). Then, they begin the debate by revealing their choices for the worst character decision in a horror movie (19:03). Finally, they hear some listener submissions before choosing one to be added to this week’s poll (44:49).
Now it’s up to you to decide! What is the worst character decision in a horror movie? You can vote for the winner below, on The Ringer’s Twitter feed, and in the Spotify app, where you’ll find Trial by Content. The winner will be announced next week!
