No cell reception...

Back in the 70s and 80s it was easy to strand teenage kids in the middle of nowhere. As long as the payphone was broken (or the headset conveniently ripped off the cord), there was no way for them to get in touch with the outside world. But then came cell phones and that kinda mucked things up for lazy Hollywood writers. Everybody has a cell phone so why wouldn't they just call 911 when they're being chased by a maniac. And then someone had the bright idea: NO SIGNAL!

All we have to do is acknowledge that the future victims have a cell phone but they aren't getting any signal and we can let the killings begin! This has become a go-to cliche very quickly in horror movies and someone was smart enough to cut together all the "no signal" clips from horror movies into one video. Check it out!
