Just 18 Tweets From The "Survive A Horror Movie In 5 Words" Hashtag

"Never say, 'Let's split up.'"

It's October which means it's prime time to sit back and watch some of your favorite horror films — if you're into that kind of thing, of course.

Paramount Pictures

That said, one of the most frustrating parts of watching a scary movie is when the protagonist(s) avoid all of the plain-as-day signs of danger, which ultimately leads to them getting wounded, and sometimes, killed.

For example, the person who trips and falls, allowing the killer to catch up with them and strike while they're on the ground. Or the person who, for some reason, can't quell their curiosity so they decide to investigate a terrifying, dilapidated-looking home where they will surely meet their demise. You get the picture.

So it's appropriate — on Friday the 13th, no less — that folks would be tweeting how one could survive in a horror movie.
