Author's Note: 10 Scary Movies Where the Pets Don't Die

As an avid horror fan and devoted dog lover, this was pretty much the best assignment ever. It's really funny how much more disturbing we find animal deaths in movies than human deaths. In a movie where something like 20 people are horribly murdered ("Friday the 13th VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan"), we fixate on Toby the dog. I really do think most dog deaths in movies are cheap, manipulative ploys.
