The Movie: Scream 2 (1997)
The Character: Randy Meeks (Jamie Kennedy)
Oh, Randy. He spends the first Scream movie being the brains of the audience, spouting horror movie lore and generally surviving because He Knows The Rules.
Don't split up, he warns us. Don't go an investigate the strange noise you heard elsewhere in the house.
It's extra sad, then, that the Scream sequel decides to turn him into an idiot, and start making the same foolish mistakes that have seen plenty of his peers offed.
If Only They'd: Kept his rules in mind when finally on the phone with the masked killer.
How Do They Die? Randy decides that the best course of action when he's contacted is to keep the Voice on the phone, then back towards a van.
A vehicle that - of course! - is the perfect hiding place for someone plotting to grab him, stab him and leave him bleeding to death.
