Horror Movie Character Survival Tips

1. If the house you're living in tells you to "GO AWAY", do so immediately.

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's really dead.

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

6. Never read a book of demon summoning aloud, even as a joke.

7. Don't look under the bed.

8. Do not search the basement, especially if the power has just gone 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 and 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, for you are only further endangering

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

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

15. If your children speak to you in Latin or any other language which
    they do not know, or if they speak to you using a voice which is other
    than their own, shoot them immediately.  It will save you a lot of
    grief in the long run.

	  them, so be prepared.

    someone else does it for you.  Worry about funerals later.
