“Movies like this end when the final girl kills the main bad guy.”
A whole lot has been written and said about the inherent tropes found within the horror genre, and even horror films such as Scream and The Cabin in the Woods have brilliantly deconstructed them. What more needs to be said? Well, nothing really.

With Halloween approaching, CineFix has taken a smart look at the top 5 horror movie tropes of all time, tracking the most common “recurring cultural patterns” found within horror movies over the years and providing some thoughtful insights… rather than simply poking fun at the genre’s tropes, like many have done over the years.
From the haunted house with a history to the final girl, check out their picks below.
