Including: How to determine what type of horror film you're trapped in. The five types of slashers and how to defeat them. How to handle killer dolls, murderous automobiles, and other haunted objects. How to deal with alien invasions, zombie apocalypses, and other global threats. What to do if you did something last summer, if your corn has children in it, or if you suspect you're already dead. Advanced escape techniques, like switching to a different film genre or inserting an awkward product placement.
