When characters suffer from single-use weapon disorder. They've just been attacked, defended themselves effectively, so they--throw the weapon away and run? Especially when there are large groups of antagonists chasing them. Keep the damn weapon!

Crippling terror: character has a chance to escape but stands there frozen. Or worse, found a good place to hide, but starts screaming uncontrollably.

The "gun cocking" sound that plays every time someone is shown onscreen with a gun.

I try not to bitch too much about gun inaccuracies, bit the "gun cock" thing does get to me. Especially when it's a gun that has already been fired. If they're reloading and the dramatically rack the slide, that's fine, makes sense. But when someone does it just for effect after having already shot the gun, it makes me roll my eyes. All they're doing is wasting a round, modern guns don't need to be cocked again unless you're reloading.

Tony: You're not making sense, man!
The Doctor: Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

Consider What if the protagonist is Batman?

The characters are sooooooo dumb, like seriously if I heard a weird growly monster sound in my closet, or someone clanging around downstairs in my house... I would fucking run away. I would not investigate. But then I guess that would defeat the point of the movie. But still, annoying.

My pet peeve about horror movies is they ALWAYS KILL THE BLACK GUY!!!!!

Then batman should kill them or at least disable them waist down or lobotomize them.

Gasp

Batman doesn't kill people -- that's his thing. I guess he could break their legs, though.

Characters that take horrific abuse from the same jerk again and again when they could stop it with flawless ease.

Characters with vital information and proof that get shunned or ridiculed as a loon until the last second, while the others pull their best plan out of their butt.

RE: Things that drive me nuts in movies
When a couple have sex and then just roll over as if there's nothing to clean up.
Really? You're just going to lie there with a puddle of jizz running down your leg? How romantic.
Then in the morning it'll be all crusty. Unsure

RE: Things that drive me nuts in movies
When the hero saves the villain. I've yet to see this work out well for either of them.

When the protagonist is given the option between some relatively small thing, and saving a large amount of people. It's always played up as a big choice when it really shouldn't be.

RE: Things that drive me nuts in movies
1. Not following up on a downed bad guy. Why get so stingy with ammo?

2. How do the guys with knives or chainsaws get so far in horror movies? Nobody has a gun? This is America! Everybody has a gun! I've got 5!

3. Continuing on #2...how come repeat victims never buy a gun? I was so annoyed with the Scream series. How many times do you need to have somebody murder all your friends and try to murder you, before you start wearing body armor and walk around strapped 24/7?

4. Sex scenes. Come on, lets see some realism. There's no graceful way to take off socks. And waking up in the morning with perfect hair and make up. No morning fart or morning pee?

The religion of one age, is the literary entertainment of the next.
