Aliens: Guys, just leave the planet ALONE! See also: every other sci-fi space horror movie ever made.
Halloween: Trick or treating is safe; babysitting is not. In fact, at four bucks an hour, it's murder!
Texas Chainsaw Massacre: “Don't mess with Texas” is NOT just a suggestion.
Hostel: Room rates that cheap? There’s always a catch.
Friday the 13th: When it comes to a choice between playing a competitive board game or sleeping with Kevin Bacon, always choose the board game. Top prize for the winner? Not being eviscerated.
The Shining: Six weeks with Shelley Duvall will DRIVE YOU INSANE!
Psycho: The fastidious always get whacked a.k.a you don’t have to shower EVERY day, lady. It's bad for your roots.
The Amityville Horror: No matter what the asking price, a house with bleeding walls is NOT a bargain. Unless it's in a really cute neighborhood.
Dawn of the Dead: When you see a zombie lumbering at you at .002 miles per hour, DON’T stand around and wait for it. It’s not coming at you for a tickle.
The Thing: When traveling to the Antarctic always bring the following items -- sweaters, hot cocoa, one or two huskies, a good pair of boots, and oh yes, your own personal airplane to escape in when murderous parasites take over your colleagues. Also, marshmallows for the hot cocoa.
