* Death in the ''Film/FinalDestination'' movies primarily goes after those who cheat him in some way, but at least in the later films, Death seems to wait for ridiculously minor infractions. Such as disobeying the "No food or drinks allowed" sign (particularly onerous when you're at a theater with the same taboo, solely to force you to pay their markups).

It is especially ironic that even director Creator/JohnCarpenter, who essentially caused the "boom" in the masked slasher genre by making the film ''[[Film/{{Halloween 1978}} Halloween]]'', was often mistaken to have been making a statement about promiscuity. Quite the opposite in fact, Carpenter has said on many occasions; the characters who were picked off during or after sex were only so treated because they were distracted and not concentrating on what was happening, not because he wanted to make any sort of moral statement. The main survivor of the teens in the film survived despite having partaken in illicit drugs earlier in the film, for example, but was collected enough to survive a run-in with a masked maniac (with a fortunate chance stop-in of a psychiatrist with a vendetta, armed with a gun, who ended the encounter and saved her life). Similarly, in the first ''[[Film/FridayThe13th1980 Friday the 13th]]'', the survivor partakes in illicit drugs and, in the original script, a premarital affair. The survivor being a chaste and pure character is something that has occurred with the {{Flanderization}} of the genre.

* ''Series/{{Slasher}}'': The Executioner targets people who are guilty of one of the SevenDeadlySins. Most of his victims turn out to be rather despicable people guilty of crimes such as rape, murder by inaction, and extortion. [[spoiler:When TheReveal comes around it is somewhat hinted that his father, a priest obsessed with punishing the sinful, was a source of inspiration in all this.]]

[[SortingAlgorithmOfMortality Not quite.]] It turns out that the common ground most monsters and antagonists, regardless of alignment, intelligence, or sanity, seem to share is a habit to pick targets who have just [[KickTheDog exposed]] some [[DeathBySex minor vice]] of their own. [[MadonnaWhoreComplex Given the choice between the prim and chaste (but initially vulnerable) FinalGirl, or the smoldering, seductive temptress]], they will, without fail, [[DeathBySex gut the temptress]], probably [[MyGirlIsNotASlut just after she's had sex to show us how promiscuous she is]].

** In another ''[=MST3K=]'' movie, ''Film/HorrorsOfSpiderIsland'', a dancing troupe is stranded on an island and their manager Gary gets bitten by a radioactive spider, turning him into a sort of were-spider. Naturally, his first victim is the only stripper in the group, who had also shamelessly flirted with Gary in front of his secretary-slash-girlfriend Georgia.
