Child's Play picture

Stupidity: John, the guy who taught Chucky the voodoo spell is confronted by Chucky later on in doll form. When things don't go how Chucky wants, he finds a Voodoo doll of the same guy just lying around and uses it to torture him. So this idiot who knows Voodoo and what it does, happens to have a Voodoo doll of himself just lying around? Yeah sure, that can't go wrong at all.

Stupidity: The girls are saved at the end from being possessed by the succubus. All three have become very attractive looking, one's no longer got an overbite, another's not overweight, the last one no longer wears glasses yet they don't notice these changes themselves.

Halloween 4 picture

Stupidity: For being supposedly clever as well as purely evil Michael's pretty stupid here. He gets to the gas station well ahead of Loomis yet waits for him there, doesn't kill him either despite knowing he'd try to stop him like the last time.

Stupidity: Knowing that the Klowns' noses are their weak point from previously shooting them, Dave doesn't bother to shoot the giant Klown at the end with his pistol, instead waiting to be almost crushed and finally popping it with his badge pin.
