OF COURSE, the really scary thing about most horror films is the script. It seems to be the unwritten code of the genre that cliches will always flow more thickly than blood. So if you should happen to find yourself within a horror movie scenario, here, plucked from the Internet, is a 13-point survival guide: 1 When you have killed the monster, never check to see if it is really dead. 2 If you find that your house is built on or near a cemetery, was once a church used for black masses, had previous inhabitants who went mad or committed suicide or who performed satanic practices, move away immediately. 3 Never read a book on demon summoning aloud, even as a joke. 4 Do not search the basement, especially if the electricity has just failed. 5 When you have the benefit of numbers never pair off or go it alone. 6 As a general rule, do not solve puzzles that open the portals to hell. 7 If you are searching for something that caused a noise and find that it's just the cat and you value your life - leave the room immediately. 8 Never, never take anything from the dead. 9 If you find that a town is deserted, it is probably for a reason. Take the hint and stay away. 10 Don't fool with recombitant DNA technology unless you are sure you know what you are doing. 11 If you are running from a monster, expect to trip or fall at least twice, more if you are female. Also note although you are running and the monster is merely shambling, it will catch up with you. 12 If your companions or children suddenly start speaking Latin or some other dead language, adopt the accent of an old lady, start hissing or grow increasingly hairy get away from them as fast as possible. 13 Never do anything, stay anywhere, or read anything associated with the number 13.
