Agreed. I think it says alot to either the director or society. But, the african american characters are written with courage. They are usually the first ones to set the example for the rest of the characters.

are you asking who dies first? or more often? cos yea, i'd say the black dude usually does die first. however, by sheer volume alone, caucasians die more often, solely because most horror movies have more caucasians than, say, african americans, asians, etc. thus, leaving more caucasian victims, leading to caucasians dying more often. it's semantics, really...

Unless of course you watch Asian horror films, lol. In those, it's always Asians dying. Mainly because that's all there are in the films.Smile

 

Just being an ass. Sorry.

Caucasians get killed in bulk in a multitude of ways but the likelyhood of the black character outlasting all of the other characters is very unlikely. So even though more white characters are going to be thrown to the wolves than black characters a white character will still come out on top.

But if you want a guaranteed choice for someone that's going to die in every horror film look no further than your friendly neighborhood stoner. Poor bastards never make it out alive.Tongue out

Yeah what the hell's up with that anyway??? Can't the toker make it out alive just ONCE?!?!? LMAO!Tongue out

That just made me think of idle hands. I guess if they can't make it out alive, they can at least make it out undead!Cool

I love Idle Hands. The trio of Devon Sawa, Seth Green, and Elden Hensen was just hilarious.

Not really that is more a stereotype anymore.  Stoners, handicap, or anyone that got laid.  Dawn of The Dead, Day of the Dead, I still know what you did last summer, Halloween Ressurection, H20, and Anaconda are all examples where the black girl/guy lives.  The 80's yea it was common for the Black character, but so did the Cripple, and always a pothead gets a posthole digger through the heart.  Whats up with that.  Honestly I'll tell you who gets it.  The Amish...no t.v. no radio...no electricity.  They wouldn't know whatscoming. lol

Black people dying first is fantasy within itself. I'm not trying to generalize myself or other black people but we'd get to safety the moment something creepy happens. However I would stay if it happened in my home or somewhere important to me. But if I'm just hanging out with friends at an abandoned house and I hear footsteps in the attic I'm running back to the car and dailing 911.
