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.
When you land on a distant planet and find unusual looking pods, they're most likely eggs, and the mother won't be happy that you're being nosy. Get outta there!
There are other caveats that serve as good reminders for you to survive a horror film.

Given the fact that a brutal stabbing happens right after doing the nasty in most horror films, you may want to avoid this.
