Do not depend on the police

I know, when being stalked by a knife-wielding ntbar, you’d think it’d make sense to go to the cops. Unfortunately, in these situations, whatever cop you come by will either be well-meaning but inept, will simply not believe you, or, in rare but often fatal instances, will be teamed up with the Slasher in some way, shape, or form.

Fact is, there’s usually only one person you can depend on and that’s you.


A few movies in which the above advice was not followed:

Hell Night

I Know What You Did Last Summer

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake
