You can't run from death.

Try as you may, you can't cheat death. Because, death always has the last word.

The Fog (1980)
Curses are meant to be taken, serious.

Stealing from pirates, and failing to save them during a storm? You're cursed!

Bitten by a werewolf? You're cursed!

Get the idea?

Poltergeist (1982)
Hire a professional.

In dealing with ghosts, monsters, and what not, don't take things into your own hands.

Hire someone who has experience, in dealing with them.

Also, if you're going to build houses, don't built them on top of sacred burial grounds. Or relocate graves.

Listen to children.

If kids say they have a creepy imaginary friend who is threatening the family, move out of the house and fork over all your money for extensive psychotherapy.

Kids have pretty good instincts in horror films so please listen when they are complaining about a lady hiding in their closet, floating in the pool, or dead people roaming the halls.

The Hitcher (2007)
Don't pick up, Hitchhikers.

This one is pretty simple and right up there on the top things never to do, ever. Never let a hitchhiker around your vehicle, into your vehicle, and above all else, please don’t let him stay with you in you house because who knows what he will do.

If they give you a sob story about their life hardships and good intentions, do not give in and move on.

Psycho (1998)
Don't shower.

Another big takeaway from horror films is that practicing good hygiene is how you end up dead. Do not shower. You don’t know who could be waiting in the shower, or waiting for you to get out.

As a matter of fact, don’t even go into the bathroom. Don’t wash your face and look into the mirror because there will probably be someone standing right behind you.

Bathrooms are bad.

Zombieland (2009)
Double tap the monster/demon/ghosts.

If you are ever in a haunted situation, overkill is never a bad thing. And please once you kill it, do not walk over and stand right over the body to see if it is dead, because chances are, it’s not.

And that’s when it grabs your leg and your game is over.

Never Solve a Haunted Puzzle

If you come across an old, sketchy board game, leather bound book, or other strange ritualistic device don’t solve it. Don’t even touch it.

Why on earth would you even want to unlock whatever could be, and probably is, trapped inside puzzle. This is especially true if one of your friends jokingly says, “What’s the worst that could happen?”
