If you ever find yourself on the run from a chainsaw-wielding maniac, or terrorized by a serial killer in a hockey mask, arm yourself with some knowledge so you can outrun your tormentor. It's Halloween season and the freaks are out, ready to terrorize you.
Stay away from clowns. If a town is deserted, it's for a reason. If you think you slayed a monster, no need to check its pulse.
There are other unlikely scenarios you might prepare yourself for, like: If you've stumbled upon a church and noticed that those who are lined up in the pews are rotting corpses, there was clearly some unholy activity that preceded your visit. No need to stick around to become a permanent fixture.
