Bad Places to Hide: Where in the Home the Killer Looks First
If a killer is after someone, they know where to look, including the ever-so-obvious ones throughout the home. It’s just part of horror movies, and somewhat of a necessary evil: Stupid actions by the victims ensure they will be caught by the killer and die. It's where horror and drama meet. In addition to going where they shouldn’t, moving too slowly, and sometimes being just plain clumsy, most potential murder victims in movies have a moment of common sense that inspires them to hide. But as you might expect, they pick the worst hiding places.
Here are four of the worst hiding places when the killer comes knocking:

Under the Bed
Take Ginny in Friday the 13th Part 2. Pure clumsiness on Jason's part was the only reason she got away, but the under the bed was not the safest place. While you may survive if you hide under the bed, the hiding place affords a view of things that will really mess you up.
Hiding under the covers wouldn’t even work with a human killer. While Strickland’s character, Susan, is under there, Kayako invisibly gets into bed with her, and then appears in human form, terrorizing Susan with homoerotic suggestion before destroying her.
