Diary of a Wimpy Kid Wiki

Hello, You're Dead is the title of a horror movie bought by Rodrick. The movie's DVD was found in Rodrick's junk drawer by Greg. Its plot involved a disembodied Muddy Hand going around killing people, and the last person who sees it is always the next victim. The movie appears in Dog Days.[1]

When Greg and Rowley watched the movie during a sleepover at Greg's house, Rowley had his eyes and ears covered the whole movie while Greg watched. He described it to Rowley afterward.

Greg felt that special effects in the movie were really cheesy and wasn't even scared until the very end of the movie after the Muddy Hand kills its last victim, it crawls towards the screen, implying the viewer(s) is/are the next victim(s), which scares Greg, making him think they're getting killed. Greg and Rowley took drastic measures to avoid the scenario as much as possible.

This only leads to Greg's parents finding out about their horror movie night when Frank found them asleep in the bathroom with the lights on, disappointing them. Susan created the Reading Is Fun Club, possibly as a direct result or punishment of Greg making Rowley watch this movie.
