7. If your neighbors say their house is haunted, don't invite them to sleep over.

It's nothing personal, but spirits tend to follow individuals, and you don't want something malignant destroying the display cabinet your grandmother left you.

10. Bad idea: Give loved ones toys that light up and play music.

Because you know that tall, thin creature stalking the shadows of your home will just end up playing with it and keeping you up all night.

11. Don't let your kids make tents out of bed linen.

This one should be obvious. Any blanket fort your kid makes is just going to end up being a hiding place for the forces of evil. It's almost like you WANT them to invade your home and destroy your family.

13. If your sister screams out in the middle of the night, she probably has a good reason for doing so.

If she says to you, "GET OUT OF MY HOUSE" definitely pay attention, but obviously don't stick around to investigate for too long.

16. Never get out of bed for any reason. ESPECIALLY not to find the remote control.

I know...I know...the TV is changing channels on its own and flashing upsetting images at you, but trust me and just let it do its thing.

17. Here's a tip: If you're not sure if it's a possession or just a run-of-the-mill grumpy teen, use the ventriloquist trick to see if they keep threatening you while they're drinking a cup of water.

But this is VERY IMPORTANT: If they keep talking about flaying you alive and dragging your soul to Hell in an unearthly and horrifying voice while they're drinking, RUN.

18. Never tie yourself to your bed.

Maybe the dark forces were causing you to sleepwalk through the house causing mischief, so you figured it'd be a good idea to tie yourself down, right? Wrong. You're still going to end up creeping along the ceiling, but now your bed will be up there with you.

21. NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT A ROSARY.

You never know when a demonic nun might appear behind you. Actually, if you're headed to a house plagued by possession, it's a pretty safe bet that a demonic nun is going to appear behind you. Be prepared.
