Its mid October! Is anyone else excited about Halloween!? I sure am and The thing that I love about this time of year (aside from decorating) its the perfect time to binge watch horror movies!
Recently, Man Crates: Gifts For Men reached out to me. Because its getting close to Halloween, they told me about their current campaign, to create a Horror Movie Survival Kit. This is such an awesome idea, and I couldn't wait to start my write-up! Characters in horror movies are always so unprepared, so a survival kit would be great for someone in a horror movie!
If I had a kit to survive a horror movie, there are a few specific things I would like to have:
- a flashlight with NEW batteries (and extras that are new as well)
- pepper spray, to be able to get away fast!
- some kind of weapon (baseball bat, machete, chainsaw)
- some sort of multi-tool
- extra cellphone batteries
- a pair of running shoes, or hiking boots
- and a first aid kit...for the dumbass that gets hurt doing something stupid
Now having said that, I felt the need to add on to this concept. If you're like me, whenever you watch a horror movie, you spend a lot of time yelling at the TV (like the characters can hear you, Ha!) about the stupid decisions or things that the characters do. And of course, because of their bad choices, they ultimately die. So what would it take to survive a horror movie? Here are some of my own tips/ideas on how to not die in a horror movie!
The Buddy System- Splitting up when there's a killer, or a monster or whatever, is always a bad idea. But never-the-less, someone always has the 'smart' idea to cover more ground if they separate. Or they tell someone to wait in some sketchy location while they go and get help. DO NOT SPLIT UP!
If you hear a noise..don't ask "Who's There". The killer isn't going to answer you. Why do people always do this? If you're at home alone and there is some strange noise, don't go investigate. Unless you have an insane pet that likes to knock shit over. If there is a weird sound that you know shouldn't be coming from inside your house, it might be a good idea to leave and go somewhere else. Walmart is open 24 hours, go hang out there for a while!
So these are just some of the ideas I came up with, but I could list about a hundred more things not to do, lol. What are some of the things you think would help you to survive a horror movie?
