Do you want to survive this Halloween? Here are some rules:
If you think you've killed a monster, NEVER check that it's really dead. It isn't. Also, if you've just pushed the monster in the lake from your boat, DO NOT LEAN OVER to see if it's gone!
If you find out that your house was built on an old cemetery, move in with your in-laws immediately!
If the power has just gone out, do NOT search the basement!
NEVER back out of one room into another without looking. It's always behind you.
If your pet suddenly runs away, do not go looking for it. If you do, turn the lights ON. And stay away from the basement.
If you have to run away, take a bus. If you take the car, the monster will be in it.
If your car runs out of gas at night, do NOT go to the nearest deserted-looking house to phone for help.
If you find a town that looks deserted, it's probably for a reason. Take the hint and stay away!
Never read a book of demon summoning aloud, not even as a joke.
Stay away from certain geographical locations, such as Elm Street, Transylvania, the Bermuda Triangle, or any small town in Maine.
