Why Louis will die

The many mistakes of Louis

Watch the opening cinematic trailer for Left 4 Dead, and you’ll see how full of fail Louis truly is. During the short movie, Louis manages to make just about every common mistake that’ll make your teammates hate you. He shines his flashlight in the witches face, he runs away from the group, he ends up getting pounced, and he sets off the car alarm, which alerts the horde.

As the unofficial mascot for bad Left 4 Dead players around the world, sacrificing Louis for the good of the group at the end of The Passing sounds like the perfect way to redeem the cowardly spaz – and we think that’s how it’s going to play out.

Also, he%26rsquo;s black

Of course, there’s one more thing that Louis has going against him, and that would be the color of his skin. According to the unspoken rules of horror movies, the character of color is always the first to go, which doesn’t sound too good Louis.
