It's that time again! We've laced up the gloves and climbed into the ring to give the ol' 1-2 knockout punch to another tired cliché with the latest episode of AITH KNOCKS OUT HORROR CLICHES, and this time we're taking on one of the all-time classics: the dumbass cop.
In horror films we have always had certain staples: the dumbass jock, the dumbass stoner, the dumb blonde, etc. But if you're a character in a horror film and you call the fuzz to come help you, chances are high that you're going to encounter a dumbass cop who is so inept at his job he'll most likely find himself taken out with the quickness. It seems police departments in horror flicks will issue a gun and badge to just about any imbecile and while they can always be counted on to write you a speeding ticket, these servants of the public trust aren't very handy handling a mass murdering psychopath. We're talking the dopiest of dopes here.
We're sick of seeing this cliche and it's time to knock it out.
