  1. ……”you don’t have to be faster than the monster, just faster than your friends”… so says an old shirt from the haunted house i work with

  2. Cops are useless in these movies. They never BELIEVE anybody. They wait until 5 people die to believe them.

  3. Hmm, Listen to WatchMojo, or read the book( Seth Graham Smith: How to survive a Horror Movie),  Imma go with book.

  4. My question are they all white people because white people have no sense(not saying they all don’t but sheltered rich kids tend to not have sense) or is it because Hollywood doesn’t like to cast black people? Don’t tell me there are no black actors and actresses cause there are

  5. As Above So Below was a found footage film where the protagonist, and all other characters survive, except for two lol
