The man behind the amazing I’m Not Here to Make Friends reality TV montage, is back with a brand new viral video that pokes fun at one of the most overused horror movie cliches of the past decade: the disabled cell phone. Technological advances have always been at odds with bad guys in horror flicks, continually making it more and more difficult for a character to be totally isolated and cut off from the world. Most screenwriters seem to handle this in the laziest way possible, by inserting a scene where the victims attempt to make a phone call, only to find that they don’t have a signal.
While in some cases I agree it is a plot element that needs to be addressed, you can see that after a while it gets to be pretty damn repetitive. Time to get creative! Massive props to Rich Four Four for another masterful editing job that must have taken quite a bit of work.
