The Killing List
The Cliché: The victims are picked off one by one, starting with minor characters and ethnic minorities and working up to the bigger names.
Appears In: Scream 2 (1997)
How To Recreate It: This should involve massive amounts of research, watching every horror movie ever to see who gets bites it, and when.
Starting with an ethnic minority is a healthy approach, perhaps followed by a minor character in a red shirt, and then from one of the older cast members who used to be that guy in that show.
Sluts should go soon after that, followed by man-whores, who will always die with a surprised look on their face.
Towards the climax the best friend who can’t die because they are the most likeable character will die, only to return and save the day in the film’s final moments.
However, if the actor who's playing the best friend is really annoying, you're allowed to kill him too. Horror movies are brilliant.
