People Choose Which Horror Villain They'd Go Up Against For 24 Hours To Win $3 Billion

Suppose you ran into Pennywise the Dancing Clown. You should have no time defeating It if you didn't allow them to feed on your fear. But could you survive 24 hours of It chasing you? Especially when it has the power to shape shift into something you're actually afraid of?

Not as easy as it sounds, huh?


People shared their opinions with us after Redditor TheKutsi asked the online community:

"To win 3 billion dollars, you have to survive 24 hours getting chased by a horror villain of your choice. Who are you picking? Why?"

It Follows...

"That STD thing from It Follows. I’ll fly somewhere."

AlunWH

Good luck to that thing! I suppose it'd have to walk across the ocean floor in that case. It'd never get to you.

Ghostface

"Ghostface. They’re always clumsy AF falling over their own feet. Plus I’ve seen that movie 20 goddamn times! I know the rules."

Brite_4Cats

Everyone thinks they know the rules until someone–Ghostface–breaks them!

Chucky

"Chucky. I’ll kick that little f*cker so far."

FeistyProfessor642

You could always melt him into a puddle. They did that in Child's Play 2 to great success!

Leatherface

"Leatherface from Texas Chainsaw Massacre, who cannot chainsaw massacre me as I do not live in Texas. Checkmate."

You hear a knock at the door. You peek through the peephole to see Leatherface doubled over wheezing, having run the whole way from Texas.

The chainsaw revs.

Jaws

"Jaws. I won't even go in the shower."

Are you suggesting you don't shower at all... or that that shark has the power to swim through the drains?

Either scenario is horrifying.

Zombies

"The zombies from The Walking Dead. I'd hear them coming and just climb onto a roof for a little while."

cingalis

Oh, this is a winner. Yeah, you can just hang tight and you'll be fine. Grab a gun and take out a few for fun while you're at it.

Those Bird Box things!

"The things in Bird Box. Stay home, close the blinds, and play Switch all day."

Anrui13

The pandemic gave you a trial run for staying home all day so this works!

Freddy Krueger

"Freddy Krueger. I've been awake for longer than 24 hours before, I'll just play some Halo and wait for the clock to run out."

SilverSindicate

Freddy is no match for gamers!

Well, except for that one death in the terrible Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare.

That Alien (No, not the one you're thinking of...)

"I’ll take the challenge and have the alien from A Quiet Place."

[deleted]

Should be simple enough to just not talk or move for 24 hours, right?

That One Family

"The entire family from Get Out. I am Caucasian."

mrupdog

Now this is quite possibly the definition of racial privilege and it's absolutely saving your life! That family is no joke!

Looks like these people have got it all figured out. And of course they do – just watch a lot of horror movies and you should have a general idea about how to get by.

Have you ever found yourself in a conversation, when someone brings up a topic they aren't too familiar with, but you are?

This gives you the opportunity to sweep in and share your knowledge on the subject.

While one would imagine that your relative expertise on the subject might result in thanks and appreciation, more often than not, the reaction from your friends is "why do you know that?"

Awkward as it may feel at the moment, there are very few people who don't carry some unusual areas of expertise and trivia on subjects most others are most likely unfamiliar with.

Redditor quadruple_b was curious to learn the random facts others have shared which wound up bringing their conversations to a halt, leading them to ask:

What is a really weird fact, that makes people say "why do you know that?"

As relationships get serious, it's understandable that one will want to know as much as possible about their significant others.

That is, until we make a discovery about them which might forever change how we view our relationship.

Sometimes, it might be a discovery that might just take some getting used to, even if we'd have been better off not knowing.

Other times, however, this newfound information makes remaining in this relationship untenable.

Redditor Mr_MightyMouse was curious to hear what people wished they'd never learned about their past and present relationships, leading them to ask:

"What is the one thing you found out about your S/O you wish you never did?"

Don't have sex with people attached to someone already.

There is no good excuse.

There is no reason that makes it worth it.

Most of the time the "reasons" are lies.

RedditorVirtual_Welder_4525wanted to hear from those willing to spill a little tea about some bedmates. They asked:

"People who knowingly have slept with someone who was in a relationship, why did you do it?"
