Before you kick ass!
Make sure you read How to Survive a Horror movie: Part 1 !
You read it? Not bad right? I know my stuff.
He's inside; Fight or Flight
So you’ve maximized your chances of survival by activating 911, locking down, and hiding. What would be super great right now is to yell “I called 911 ___” and to insert your favorite expletive. To the average potential burglar, or home invader, that may even scare them off! But no. You’re dealing with Jason, or Michael Myers...or Leatherface… look the villain doesn't matter, just follow my instructions and you won’t end up dead. Or like… die as quickly.
Looks like he busted down your door Rampage Style!
So our would be masked killer has booted his way through the front door dramatically. And it looks like he’s carrying something… is that a body? Jinkies! That Sheriff Mcgillacutty! Looks like 911 got there but wasn’t much help. Also looks like I just said Jinkies. I apologize for that. I honestly just don’t know Buzzfeed’s profanity policy… ANYWAY…..Looks like it's up to you to get out of this horror flick.
Are you hidden?
To Gun, or not to Gun?
But this guy is in the house, with a dead cop. So I’d say you’re pretty safe trying to kill this guy, cause he’s gonna kill you! So, staying hidden in your area with multiple exits, take a second to identify potential weapons or distractions.
But what if whoever is breaking in isn’t human?
This thing just killed a cop. Cop has more training than you probably do, and he’s dead, so let's just assume fighting is off the table. Plus, yeah, your knife could stop Ghost Face, but what's your knife gonna do to Michael Myers. Newsflash, it ain't gonna do nothin'.
Now I need you to sit tight. Be Alert. And Check out How to Survive a Horror Movie Part 3
