I'm watching a Halloween movie marathon, the actual movie Halloween, anyway, how come when the people are running away, the killer walks so slow, he always catches them? Do they not run fast enough? These killers always walk so slow. Any ideas?

Well besides the obvious that it's a movie...and that's part of the "horror" thing...that the killer catches up... most of the time it's because the people who are running away keep looking back which slows them down. Then they end up falling down and the killer ends up right on top of them. Or it's because the killer has some sort of crazy powers that he can do that (like Freddy, he can disappear and reappear wherever he wants.) allow him to suddenly appear around the person.

Well yeah I know it's a movie. I just always think it's so convenient for the killer that they fall or someone runs into them to stop them.

That's why I said "besides the obvious" because i figured you would know that it was a movie! But yeah. I think that's why... the "victim" is always looking behind them and falling and stuff that it really slows them down and the killer just simply catches up!

LOL! I always thinks the same thing, especially when I'm watching Halloween. I think maybe the reason the killers walk so slow, but still manage to catch their victims is because it adds to the fear. It's like saying you can never get away from them, they're going to get you no matter how fast you run, not matter where you go. That's def. a scary thought! Right?

Don't you know....... the laws of physics change just for movies! Enjoy your marathon. That is one movie I have never been able to watch.
