Oddly enough, when in the midsts of a Slasher-prone situation, countless would-be Final Girls (but likely victims) forget that electricty is a thing. They stumble into rooms filled with nothing but darkness and murder, then announce their presence by calling out, “Guys?” or “Who’s there?” or, as Jamie Bernadette points out, “Hello?”
Just shut up and switch on the light.
Jamie Bernadette, who provided this great Surviev-a-Slasher tip, along with two others (here and here), knows of what she speaks. In addition to starring as Tammy in the upcoming Slasher film Axeman at Cutter’s Creek, Bernadette is a huge horror movie fan and, as she puts it, “I’ve watched a lot of these movies. Horror is the easiest sell and I am obviously a buyer.”
