A quick run-down should you ever find yourself trapped in a horror movie and would prefer to live to tell the tale.

1. Don’t have sex.

Seriously
Abstinence is key.
2. Don’t go out with people you’ve just met that day.

I don’t care how good he says his weed is
he is cuckoo bananas
and he wants you dead.
3. Don’t go to camp. Especially one where someone was murdered.

There are six words you should YouTube, should you get the chance
“Kevin Bacon in Friday the 13th”
4. Find a good hiding place and… STAY. THERE.

If the killer can’t see you or hear you WHY WOULD YOU MOVE?
Possibly the easiest rule to follow and, ironically enough, the easiest to break.
5. Always wear sensible shoes, ‘cause you never know when you’ll need to run through the woods.

Someone will always be barefoot
Or in heels
Or just plain clumsy
And will sprain their ankles
And die.
6. If the town looks deserted, it’s probably because everyone is dead.

Don’t walk around looking for people
House of Wax, anyone?
7. Don’t be a hero.

Unless you’re name is Harry F*cking Potter, you will die.
Hell, maybe even then.
I mean.
8. If you hear something creepy in the distance, like a dog’s yelp cut off mid-bark, don’t investigate.

The killer is there.
Also your dog is dead.
9. Always check the backseat before entering your vehicle.

The last thing you need is to be killed while trying to merge on the expressway.
10. If your car breaks down in front of a dilapidated gas station, don’t ask a sketchy-looking townie for help.

Some part of your body will wind up in his pick-up truck
11. Don’t go into the basement.

They are creepy enough without you dying in one.
12. If you’re trying to buy a house and the real estate agent won’t answer any direct questions about either the history of the home or the previous tenants, DO NOT MOVE IN.

At some point, someone in the house heard voices and cracked.
13. Turn off the television (and run away) if a girl crawls out of it.

It is obviously your wisest choice.
SEE ALSO: poltergeist, daughter trapped in tv because of.
14. If the walls of your house bleed, do not attempt an exorcism.

Move very very far away
Because there’s blood on your walls.
Blood.
Your
Walls
Are
Bleeding.
15. Don’t act like a detective.

Some crazy Japanese kid who meows like a cat will attack you in a closet.
If you live, awesome story to tell your friend, right?
But if you die, it is like the opposite of awesome.
16. Google the location you’ll be vacationing at.

If more than five reports for “Missing Persons” pops up, you know not to go there.
Issue. Solved.
17. Don’t get drunk. Or come under the influence of any mind-altering drug.

Running away from a killer is that much harder when you’re tipsy and giggling.
18. If you see someone in a mask, don’t assume it’s one of your friends playing a trick on you to scare you.

It is the killer.
ALSO: laughing while saying, “Tommy, is that you in that stupid mask? Oh, I’m so-o-o-o-o scared!” is not conducive to your surviving.
Killer’s are very sensitive about their disguises.
19. Don’t take a shower.

ONLY APPLIES IF:
It’s past midnight at the campground you and your sorority sisters are staying at or
The lock to the door doesn’t work and you hear creepy piano music
AND THE LAST AND MOST IMPORTANT:

20. If the call is coming from inside the house, get out.

Clearly the killer is not outside, now is he.

2. Never take a bath or shower with an MSDC (maniac/spirit/demon/creature) in the house.

3. When it appears that you have killed the MSDC, DO NOT check to see if he/she/it is really dead. Keep hacking at it until it is in pieces small enough not to be a threat to you. If you've shot at it, shoot it again in the head, and remember, shoot till it stops moving, and then keep shooting till you're out of ammo. Then reload and shoot it some more. Then set it on fire and burn it up, this works with everything except demons and spirits. Then get the hell out of there.

5. If plumbing fixtures or other structures in your home begin spewing body fluids, it's time to move out

9. If tree's, TV's, or other objects try to consume your children, save as many as you can and then get the hell out of the area.

10. If relatives or pets come back from the dead, stay as far away from them as posible.

11. If inanimate objects such as dolls, toys, or furniture attack you, be prudent, leave the area.

12. If you've hidden from the MSDC and you are not found, do not peek from or leave your hiding place. If you do, you will be seen and killed.

13. Never believe that your companion has truly become "dispossessed."

14. It is VERY, VERY dangerous to back into, or through rooms.

18. If demons begin possessing your companions, it's a good idea to leave the area as soon, and as quickly as possible.

19. If your companions start turning up dead, make yourself scarce before someone else does it for you. Worry about funerals later.

20. If you've just finished running over the MSDC in your car, keep going. Most certainly DO NOT get out of the car under any circumstances to see if he/she/it's really dead.

22. Don't fall asleep if you have a history of homicidal/suicidal nightmares.

25. If you find something that appears to be alive that you cannot identify, don't pick it up or touch it, with anything

30. If priests won't or can't enter your home, start looking for a new home.

31. If the place you are visiting is known for its history of mass murders, deaths, freak accidents, or supernatural occurences, leave.

32. If you wake up from a particularly horrific dream and find yourself still alive, you probably aren't awake yet

34. Don't play with Ouija boards. If you do and the ouija board starts moving by itself, stop playing and leave immediately.

35. If supernatural beings start calling your name, leave the area immediately.

36. Never pick up a hitchiker or stop to aid a suspicious person, especially if he/she/it resembles Santa Claus.

39 If your space ship gets a alien distress signal from what appears to be a dead planet, don't stop to check it out.

40. Never put your back to or lean on a door.

41. Never take the dare to spend a night in a haunted house.

47. Stay away from certain geographical locations, some of which are listed here: Amityville, Elm Street, Crystal Lake, Transylvania, Nilbog (God help you if you recognize this one), Mydian, Questa Verde, the Bermuda Triangle, or any small town in Maine.

48. Beware of transvestite doctors that sing.

49. Avoid secluded mountain resorts, especially those which keep 'Redrum' in stock.

50. Finally, beware of strangers bearing tools of destruction such as chainsaws, staple guns, chipper/shredders, weed poppers, combines, lawnmowers, knives, soldering irons, stun guns, flamethrowers, band saws, crossbows, napalm, grenades, catapults, tactical warheads, high-powered rifles, gophers, food processors, gophers in food processors, lambchops, axes, gophers wielding axes, laser pistols, tanks, any weapon resembling Margaret Thatcher, or Alludium q-36 explosive space modulators.

51. If you're going to shoot something, in the immortal words of Robert Ruark - African big game hunter, "USE ENOUGH GUN," or preferably a chain gun.

52. If entering your craft you put your hand in a kind of sticky/slimy/resinous kind of substance that was not there before, turn and run immediately or you will be killed.

53. If you are in the Arctic and find an alien frozen in ice, don't touch it, don't thaw it out, leave it alone. The alien should be incinerated with thermite (or preferably a thermonuclear weapon), otherwise if it thaws out, it will kill you and every living thing on earth.

Places to avoid
Any small town or the middle of nowhere.



A small town gas station

Eerie barns

Old houses with histories



Places like this need to be avoided when you want to live and stay out of horror situatuons.

Southern backwoods

old hospitials

basements

run downs areas

any place with one hanging light bulb.

naturally creepy places

cemetaries

Rules to follow
1) No sex, any sex and you will die, Its like having a neon sign above your head screaming "KILL ME"

2) no drugs or alcohol. Thats just bad, becauseyou will be walking around in a drunken or high stupor, shouting and alerting the killer as to where you are.



3) Dont think you can outsmart the killer, you cant and you will fail.

4) If you think that the killer is dead you had better make damn sure, take a shotgun to his head, or behead him or her, They train months to slow down their hearts and nearly stop their breathing to make them look dead.

5) If you become stuck and find a house, and they say dont go into the basement, get the hell out of dodge, cause some occult s**t is going down

6) you cell phone will not work, most phones wont. either A) you wont have service B) the cords are snipped or the power is out. C) They dont have phones.



7) If you are in a house and get mysterious call, get the hell out. Don't spend your time running around like an idiot locking doors, cause more often than not the killer is already inside and laughing at your dumb a**.

cool that also being said, if you are confronted by your killer inside, dont run up the damn stairs. Unless you have magical flying powers you wont get out and will be killed.

9) If you run into the woods you can kiss your a** goodbye. The killer knows them better than you.

10) No barns, just avoid them, they basically are just traps the killer will use to kill you.

11) Do not go anywhere near creepy or strange sounds, more often than not its a distraction. The killer is behind you and ready to kill.

12) In horror movies its every man for him/her self. Dont group up, you're on your own.

13) Expect the unexpected.

14) Dont say I'll be back. Its a dead mans phrase.

15) No attics, no basements, no garages, or any dark damp place.

16) If you bring in any back up they will die, this means little old ladies, cops, or random strangers,

17) you will get hurt, there is no denying it, it happens.

1 cool Dont touch any unknown plants. they just scream "bad idea"

19) Urban ledgends, ghost stories, and town ledgends are true and will apply in most cases.

20) if you find you a** in some Stephen King type s**t kiss your a** goodbye. no one is safe there.

21) usually insane people are the ones you can trust

How To Survive Any Scary Movie In 20 Simple Steps
Christopher Hudspeth
1.4k
After years of frustration watching the illogical characters in scary movies foolishly place themselves in harms way and vulnerable positions, I’d like to share a survival guide while getting out that pent up frustration. Two birds, one stone, let’s do this.

1. Don’t Have Sex


Shutterstock
It doesn’t matter if you wear multiple condoms or chomp down birth control pills like Skittles — there’s no such thing as safe sex in the world of scary movies. The monsters, killers, ghosts, demons, snakes, etc. always find their way to the naked, climaxing couple and kill them – typically in gruesome fashion. (Horror film sex is especially risky when done outdoors.)

2. Invest In An iPod Or CD player.


Shutterstock
Anyone in possession of a record player is destined for some type of terrifying encounter involving their These records generally carry old, eerie melodies and will begin to skip or generate some type of freaky occurrence to fit the tune.

3. Don’t Split Up


Shutterstock
If some jackass suggests this, apply a generously forceful open hand to that person’s stupid face. If you comply with such an idiotic proposal you’ll be picked off one by one, instead of playing (and winning) a numbers game against the antagonist.

4. Peepholes = Off Limits


Shutterstock
You know that peephole on the door? Don’t look through that sh-t, ever. Nothing good is on the other side, I promise.

5. When It Gets Quiet, Avoid Walls & Doors


Shutterstock
You know how after being chased and hiding it’s silent? Well don’t put your ear next to the wall to listen for the enemy or rest your head. A knife, ax, or some other sharp weapon will come chopping through at any second.

6. The Originals ARE ALWAYS CRAZIER


Shutterstock
Pray that you aren’t in the foreign original version of a horror film because it’ll be significantly scarier. American versions often sacrifice some story or terror for expensive special effects.

7. On Tripping


Shutterstock
If you trip and fall don’t remain in that seated position, holding your ankle, whining about your knee scrapes or doing the ‘sssss ahhhh’ thing. The butt-hand-scoot away method isn’t fast enough to escape their strides toward you either. Attempt to stand back up on two feet and run, because you know, that’s like logical and stuff.

8. Noisy Hiders


Shutterstock
If you’re hiding and there’s a hysterical person with you making too much noise, punch them in the face until they’re quiet or unconscious. Seriously, there’s no noisy whining or terrified moaning allowed when hiding from a killer.

9. When You Hear Strange Sounds


Shutterstock
It wasn’t “just the wind.” Don’t let anyone convince you to ignore those noises, they are definitely something bad. But by the same token, don’t try to be a hero and take matters into your own hands.

10. New Resident Protocol


Shutterstock
Weird sh-t happening at a house that you just moved into means you should probably bounce. Not probably, definitely. Remember, there are many places to live but only one soul of your own. And if it gets possessed, you’re going to look pale, have bags under your eyes and become all angry and junk.

11. Kids, Twins And The Elderly


Case 39
Always be skeptical of kids, twins and old people. Don’t profile or discriminate, but treat them as if they’re surrounded by yellow ‘caution’ tape.

12. Knock, Knock


The Strangers
It’s nighttime. Someone knocks at your door. You know you didn’t plan on having guests, what should you do? I’ll tell you what, ANYTHING BUT OPEN THE DOOR. Make pancakes, repaint the living room, pour baked beans on your television, whatever tickles your fancy as long as you aren’t turning knobs and opening doors.

13. All Eyes Are On You


Shutterstock
If you’re isolated but it feels like somebody’s watching you, then somebody is. Don’t gaze around scared, doing a panicked, panoramic scan of your surroundings. Move your a** and run towards civilization.

14. Put Away The Magnifying Glass


CSI
You don’t investigate. In fact, remove the word “investigate” from your vocabulary. You’re not a detective. Not even a poor man’s Gil Grissom, so don’t go searching for answers. If what you’re curious about can’t be Google’d – don’t freakin’ bother, Holmes – it’s probably got an answer you’d rather not see or feel.

15. Lights!



If you enter a room with flickering fluorescent lights: Stop, turn around and walk in the opposite direction. Matter of fact, a mild jog in the opposite direction is more appropriate.

16. More Lights!


Shutterstock
If weird, supernatural sh-t that you have no control of is happening, turn on a lamp and sleep with the light on. Have you ever seen ghosts pull a person’s blanket off in broad daylight or a fully lit room? Absolutely not. Lamps are a ghost’s kryptonite.

17. CAMERA!


Paranormal Activity
Don’t let anyone bring a night vision capable camcorder around. Otherwise I can forecast a paranormal sh-t storm headed right your way. Something about that greenish, Paris Hilton sex-tape night vision mode brings out the ghouls.

18. Take ACTION!


Dawn Of The Dead
You’re in a position where you may have to kill a stranger for some reason. Should you do it? Yes. Absolutely. I mean you can’t risk your own life. This doesn’t just go for strangers but acquaintances too. And anyone who isn’t family. Scratch that. Also take out family members who you don’t care for. Like that non-blood related Aunt who is condescending towards your Mom at family gatherings? She can get the boot. In zombie situations feel free to kill anybody who has turned — even babies.

19. Please Face Forward


The Others
If you’re in a room and a figure is seated with their back to you, turn toward the nearest exit and haul a** towards it. Even if you think you recognize the back of that head, don’t engage. Because when he/she/it turns around, the eyes will be rolled in the back of the head or the face distorted in some manner that will not be pleasant to look at.

20. Kill The Bad Guy, Then Kill HIm Again


Shutterstock
The initial shot, stab, punch, kick, etc. DID NOT kill your enemy. Don’t let up and don’t get close to them, because they’ve got one last wide-eyed, tight gripped attack before they’ll completely be down for the count. TC Mark

1. Firstly, never drink or do drugs and stay a virgin. Boring!
2. Never say that you'll be right back because you won't be.
3. Always make sure that your car has a fresh battery so it will start immediately in times of crisis.
4. When you're searching a house because you think there's something dangerous there, for God's sake turn the bloody lights on!
5. If you're running from the monster, expect to trip or fall down at least twice, more if you are of the female persuasion. Also note that, despite the fact that you are running and the monster is merely shambling along, it's still moving fast enough to catch up with you.
6. Big breasts and blonde hair are a death-wish.
7. Don't fool with recombinant DNA technology unless you're sure you know what you are doing.
8. If you find a town which looks deserted, it's probably for a good reason. Take the hint and stay away.
9. As a general rule, don't solve puzzles that open portals to Hell.
10. Never read a book of demon summoning aloud, even as a joke. Do not search the basement, especially if the power has just gone out.
11. If you find that your house is built upon or near a cemetery, that was once a church that was used for black masses, had previous inhabitants who went mad or committed suicide or died in some horrible fashion, or had inhabitants who performed necrophilia or satanic practices, move away immediately.
12. Always check the back seat of your car.
13. If on a stormy night, you find a window open which you thought was previously closed, do not close it. It may be your only way out when whatever has come in through it is chasing you.
14. If you come into possession of a strange old artifact and any exotic person (old wizened oriental, gypsy, indian medicine man) warns you to do/not do something, do not do just the opposite in order to demonstrate how silly they are.
15. Anniversary nights of executions, horrible murders, or terrifying rituals should be viewed with fear. Especially on the spot where the event took place. Most especially on even century anniversaries. And certainly if you or a friend is somehow descended from one of the original participants.
16. If your friend turns into a demon and then suddenly turns back to normal, kill them because they are not normal!
17. Kill the person in the group who suggests that you split up. They will eventually get you killed.
18. Never be with the group who plays vicious pranks on the shy strange new kid, those pranksters will soon meet their doom and often in a horribly gory way.
19. Go ahead and slap the screaming hysterical girl, she will be the one to distract everyone when there really is danger.
20. Nothing is ever over if it is still night-time.
21. Take heed of all warnings from animals and children. They usually know more than you do.
22. Never run to the top floor of any building if you are being chased by a maniac/monster. Your only way out will be to jump.
23. Never publicly announce your plans for the future if you make it out alive. It guarantees that you have no future.
24. Never under any circumstances run upstairs if you are being chased.
25. When it appears that you have killed the monster, never check to see if it's really dead.
26. Never stand in, on, above, below, beside or anywhere near a grave, tomb, crypt, mausoleum or any other house of the dead.
27. Do not take *anything* from the dead.
28. Stay away from certain geographical locations. Such as: Amityville, Elm Street, Transylvania, Nilbog, the Bermuda Triangle or any small town in Maine.
29. Beware of strangers bearing tools such as chainsaws, staple guns, hedge trimmers, electric carving knives, lawnmowers, butane torches, smoldering irons, band saws or any (possibly deathly) device made from deceased companions.
30. Listen closely to the soundtrack and pay attention to the audience. They are usually far more intelligent than you could ever hope to be.
31. Remember: Showing Skin=Death.
32. Always be nice to the shy, quiet, unpopular girl in school.
33. Never watch a horror movie while you're in a horror movie.
34. When battling zombies, always sever their head or shoot them in the brain. If you they still want to eat you after that, just surrender. There's no hope for you anyway.
35. If you're annoying person that no-body likes and in a crap cheapo horror movie, please make a documentary that requires you to hike through the woods while looking for a witch that leaves stick figures hanging in trees, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!
36. Never say "Who's there?" Its a death wish.
37.If you DO happen to get killed, make sure it's in a cheap low-budget gore-fest with no plot, so you can come back in the sequel and kick a**, no explanation needed.

Let's say you are walking alone down a deserted country road. All of a sudden it gets really dark. A wolf howls. You hear heavy breathing. Yup, you somehow got stuck in a horror movie. But not to worry! You can survive if you abide by these rules. Oh and you might want to grab a piece of paper and a pencil, there are quite a few of them...

If your children speak to you in Latin or any other language which they should not speak, or if they speak to you using a voice which is not their own, shoot them immediately. It will save you the grief in the long run. *NOTE* It will probably take several rounds to kill them, so be prepared.

If your car runs out of gas late at night, don't go to the nearby deserted looking house to call for help. Likewise if your car has broken down, and the only refuge for miles is that creepy old mansion/castle on the hill. Stay in the car.

Never listen to music that contains staccato shrieking violins.

If you are a woman, never strip and take a shower in slow motion.

Do not keep all your sharpened kitchen knives in one of those wooden block thingies on your worksurface.

The first woman to either lose or remove her clothing is dead meat.

The guy with the testosterone overdose is also dead meat.

Along with the guy that is always making jokes
Never back out of one room into another without looking. It's always behind you.

If you are traveling with friends, never let any hitch hikers into the van with you. It'll be the worst (if not the last) day of your life.

Never babysit.There are enough babysitter-in-danger-thanks-to-a-stupid-killer flicks out there already.

If you ARE stupid enough to babysit, never try on the mom's nightgown collection. You'll only end up showing more skin. Remember: Skin=Death.

If you are being chased, never lean against the wall when you think you lost him. He'll just pop through and kill you.

Same goes for leaning against the window.

If you are at your Senior prom, and the school reject has just won prom queen, slowly back away and run for the exit. All hell is about to break loose.

If you are a stoner among other stoners, be the quiet one or the lovable one. All the other stoners will be killed.

If the killer has stalked you over the phone lines, don't take a job as a phone counselor.

Never let someone hypnotize you at a party.

Stay away from sewers.

If you sense something is behind you, don't bother turning around to check. Just run.

If you are trying to escape the killer, sliding through the cat door in the electronic garage door will not help you any.

After you manage to kill the monster/killer, never sit beside it and cry. It will suddenly pop back up to finish the job.

Never go to camp or become a counselor. You'll be dead by the end of summer.

Never say "I'll be right back." You won't be back. End of story.

Don't ever do something just because someone dares you to.
f someone tells you to do or not to something (example: DON'T fall asleep, DON'T go out there, DON'T go look for the homicidal-chainsaw-wielding psychopath by yourself) by all means, LISTEN TO THEM!!

A small town's little summer celebration might sound like fun. But if you hear the locals say things like, "Why you're the guest of honor! We couldn't even have the barbecue with out you!", run like hell.

If you are trapped in a house surrounded by demons, making coffee will not help anyone.

Always be nice to the shy, quiet, unpopular girl in school.

Clowns never have, nor will they ever be helpful to hang around while in a horror movie. As harmless as the might seem, they WILL kill you once you let your guard down.

Never go back for anything you lost.

Avoid people with pointy teeh.

Avoid people with lots of facial hair.

Avoid people with pale complexions who sway and moan,

If the barber remarks on the "666" tattoo your kid has, abandon the kid and move to Irkutsk.

If you see a burly man wearing a hockey mask and toting a chainsaw, DO NOT stick around to see if he's with the Philadelphia Flyers.

Never buy your kid a toy that talks back.

Remember: Just say "NO" to human blood.

Never watch a horror movie while you're in a horror movie.

Never, under any circumstance, plan a camping trip that coincides with Friday the 13th.

Pigs blood is not now, nor has it ever been funny.

If the young girls of the neighborhood start singing songs about boogeymen while jumping rope, consider moving.

If you hit a man with a car in the middle of the night and try to roll him off of a dock, make sure that he is dead!

Never EVER play with any Ouijia board that you find in the basement of your newly bought, run-down house.

Never run into a deserted graveyard at night,

If you are running away from the killer/monster, don't even try to start the car. It doesn't matter if the car is brand new, it won't start.

If running from the monster/killer, try to make the least amount of noise possible. Especially if you are female. Panting, crying and screaming is not going to help you hide any better.

For pete's sake...NEVER stick your hand down the garbage disposal. Especially if you just heard strange noises in your house or while sinister music is playing.

Don't marry a guy that has Satan Worshippers as friends. They will want you to birth the new Anti-Christ.

Never answer the phone when you are babysitting. Just get the hell out of there and leave the kids for dead.

If you think you see your girlfriend/boyfriend and they are wearing a mask, not talking, or conspicuously hiding their face, it's not them.

Don't be mean to the new kid. They will just end up killing you.

If you hear a strange noise coming from upstairs that sounds similar to, oh let's say a severed head falling to the floor, don't go trying to find out what it is.

Never touch something that just oozed out of a comet that landed near an abandoned farm house.

When battling zombies, always sever their head or shoot them in the brain. If you they still want to eat you after that, just surrender. There's no hope for you anyway.

Never wait until you NEED the gun to check and see if it's loaded.

If you have to stay out in the woods or at camp you're pretty much screwed. But at least you'll have a fighting chance in the cabin. Never EVER take the tent.

Never try to unmask the killer.

Never hide in a closet.

If you buried your child in a strange place and he came back as a demon, DON'T bury your wife in the same place.

If you find the mangled body of a friend, camping partner, janitor, or whom ever, don't stay and investigate. Run like hell.

Don't spend a lot of time in houses decorated with an excessive amount of medieval weaponry. It will be used eventually.

Don't make a documentary that requires you to hike through the woods while looking for a witch that leaves stick figures hanging in trees.

If you are going to the bathroom in a movie theatre and you think you hear a guy and a girl making out in the stall next to you, don't put your ear closer to the wall to listen.

If you see a short guy wearing green and wearing a shamrock hat, I wouldn't stick around to ask about his pot of gold.

Never transport the killer in an ambulance from one place to another. Even if they've been in a coma for 10 years, they'll wake up.

Never listen to strange voices on the telephone.

Never say "Who's there?"

If your hand has been possesed by the Force of Evil, do NOT chop off your hand. Doing so will merely allow the disembodied hand the freedom to wreak havoc independent of your body. And now you have to spend the rest of the film trying to track it down,

If you have a feeling you'll end up being chased by zombies during the night, remember to wear comfortable running shoes.

After babysitting, don't walk down any deserted streets with lots of trees and bushes, but no lights.

If you are a girl with long blonde hair, blue eyes and big boobs, well, you are pretty much screwed.

Always check the backseat of your car before you get in.

When running away from the killer/monster, NEVER run upstairs.

If you see someone who is within screaming distance while running from the killer/monster, for the love of god, SCREAM!!

If a giant shark is chasing your family, don't go swimming. Actually, stay away from the water, period.

If you are babysitting, don't let the kids play with the Chucky doll.

If one night you see a dark haired girl carrying around dolls with the eyes scratched out, back away slowly, then run like hell.

If you go to your school library and there are a lot of books having to do with vampires and demons...move away ASAP

If you are fleeing from a killer or supernatural being and you see a cop car, run right by it. There are three possible ways that things will turn out if you try to get the cops attention and none are good:

A. The cop is already dead in some gruesome way that will cause you to scream and alert the killer/monster as to where you are.

B. The cop will probably end up dead as he tries to help you, this will only distract the killer away from you for a few seconds, but chances are you will end up getting killed anyway.

C. The supernatural being has assumed the form of a cop and just when you
think you are safe...he will kill you.

If the locals say the camp is haunted, it probably is.

If people in your neighborhood have been disappearing and there's talk about a surge of any type of insect...move. Stubborn home owners always die.

When and if you fall while running and the killer/monster is near you, don't just sit there screaming like someone will hear you. Get up and RUN!!

Kill the Scientist. No matter what else you do, kill him off right away. They always want to study "it," or take "it" back to the corporate masters, or learn from "it" at the expense of comrades lives. Eggheads are always trying to understand the unknown, and get nearly everyone killed doing it. Get a clue, kill the guy with the pocket protector, he's going to sacrifice you anyway.

If the killer if after you and you somehow manage to knock him down,
don't get up and run for help. Believe me, he will stay down much longer
after you kick him a couple times.

If the movie is directed by someone named Wes Craven or John Carpenter, you're pretty much screwed.

If the killer/monster is dead, don't dig up his grave to try to do a final resurrection. He will only come back to life.

If you disobey the previous rule, don't try cutting off his head or anything
cheap. Stick a grenade in his mouth and run for it.

If the killer is standing three feet in front of you, don't just stand there and scream while he comes running towards you. It may comes as a shock, but he DOES in fact want to kill you.

A female should never wear a white shirt without a bra while escaping the monster. It will only increase your chances of falling and causing a freak rainstorm that will make your shirt transparent and result in your immediate death.

If you live in Maine and your hometown includes a clown driving a car he calls Christine with a large ,rabid St. Bernard in the backseat, while residing in an old, haunted hotel near a strange Pet Semetary and hangs out with teenage girls with telekenetic powers....you're pretty much screwed.

If you DO happen to get killed, make sure it's in a cheap low-budget gore-fest with no plot, so you can come back and kick a**, no explanation needed.


When you have the benefit of numbers, NEVER pair off or go alone.

If the gang plans a fun midnight party in the town's old abandoned mansion, don't tag along. Especially don't tag along if everyone's going as couples,except you're the odd guy/gal out. And if you're the gang's jokester, you may as well write up your last will and testament while you're driving with them tothe place.

Do not take (or borrow) anything from the dead.

If your companions suddenly begin to exhibit uncharacteristic behavior such as hissing, fascination for blood, glowing eyes, increasing hairiness, and soon, get away from them as fast as possible.

Stay away from certain geographical locations, some of which are listed here: Amityville, Elm Street, Transylvania, Crystal Lake, Haddonfield any hotels such as the Bates and the Overlook

Nilbog (God help you if you recognizethis one), the Bermuda Triangle, or any small town in Maine or Massachusetts.

Beware of strangers bearing tools such as chain saws, staple guns, hedge trimmers, electric carving knives, combines, lawnmowers, butane torches,soldering irons, band saws, weed-whackers or any device made from deceased companions.

Never, never, NEVER try to communicate with something icky because "there's so much we can learn from them".

Don't make fun of or play with dead things.

If a meteor strikes nearby, move out of town.

When something bad is chasing you, bear in mind that when you try to start your car, no matter how reliable the vehicle is normally, you'll have to crankthe engine over many times before it will fire up.

If you walk into the local abandoned-looking church to seek help or shelter, and you notice that the crucifix is mounted upside down, turn around and goback outside as quietly as possible.

When you happen to be one of the fortunate ones and actually make it through the film alive, never, NEVER sign on to do a sequel. If you do, expect todepart this world in the first five minutes.

Never have sex in the bunkbeds of recently renovated summer camps.

Strange lights are seldom harbingers of joy.

People arriving to rescue you generally get ambushed by the monster, so don't rely on them as your only means of escape. In fact, expect to be surprisedand delayed by encountering their flayed corpse at some point.

On no account do ANYTHING because someone dares you to.

If you realize that the people in your town/county are having their minds taken over by some strange force, alien or otherwise: DO NOT call the police asthey are A) either already taken over themselves and will turn you in or B) will not believe you and laugh at you. Either way, you must handle the problemyourself.

If a small band of children appear to be smarter then the adults that are around them, be cautious. If they stay together in a small, secretive group, anddisplay nothing but hostility towards their elders, authority, and the church, leave town at once. If you wish to stay, be as kind to the children as possible, butexpect to die anyways because you are inferior to them.

If you assist the villian of the film, do not expect gratitude in exchange for your services. In fact, do not expect anything other then death, which will comein the final minutes of the film and usually over the girl you have become attracted to, but the villian wants as their own.

If any animals, such as Birds, Pirahna, Spiders, etc. begin to exhibit behavior that seems a bit more hostile towards mankind than normal, immediately callin the authorities, get out of that town, and do not try to talk to any scientist who specializes in that animal (ornithologists and the like) for they will not believeyou.

Whatever you do, DO NOT keep pets such as cats, dogs, hamsters, or anything cuddly. If you must, do not let them out of your sight for so much as asecond.

When you land on a distant planet and find some objects that look like eggs, leave them alone.

When one of your spaceship's crew finds a hideous parasite attached to his body (as a result of disobeying the previous rule), don't let him back on theship. The guy's dogmeat anyway.

When a hideous alien menace is hunting you (as a result of disobeying the previous two rules) never wander off alone to hunt for the ship's cat.

Never, EVER go in/out there (There being the attic, closet, barn, basement, dark alley, dark anywhere else, the all-concealing shadows, the woods or thelake)

If someone who seems important tells you to do or NOT do something (like DON'T fall asleep, DON'T leave me, DON'T look for thehomicidal-chainsaw-wielding-psychopath by yourself) by all means, listen to them, unless doing so would break another of the guidelines.

If you manage to lose a few body parts along the way, don't despair. Take this opportunity to replace them with weapons, such as chainsaws, harpoons,etc.

If you are using a gun to combat the all-comsuming evil, it is a good idea to quickly find a new means of defense, because no matter how much ammo youhave, you'll run out just before you kill the monster (unless your name is Ash, in which case, you'll never have to reload)

If you are wounded by flesh-eating zombies, aboandon all hope, because sooner or later, no matter how many anti-biotics you take, yer gonna become oneof 'em.

If you're the the last main character left, and a bunch of people are hun
