1. Whatever you do, don't answer the phone. It'll end up being a) the killer, b) someone who doesn't believe you, or c) a phone call with the worst reception you've ever experienced.
2. If you think the murderer is dead give them a courtesy shot just to make sure.
3. Sex usually equals death so try to abstain.
4. If you think you're alone it's probably a good clue that you're not.
5. Just let that sound upstairs be. It's nothing to worry about.
6. Whatever you do, do not, I repeat do not, go upstairs!
7. Never, ever split up. Safety is in numbers people!
8. If the lights are out you should be too.
9. Try not to be the most cliché victim ever by falling.
10. And finally, when you think it's all over . . . it's probably not.
