Oh, dear. Clearly you’ve been spending too much time not learning the rules of horror movies. We suggest giving a few of the classics a serious re-watch (or a first watch) to ensure you don’t wind up at the pointy end of Freddy's glove or Ghostface’s knife.


You’re clearly not a horror movie expert, but you’re not totally clueless, either. We’d suggest a studious reviewing of the rules and carrying your favorite lucky tchotchke to up your survivor factor.


You’ve seen these movies more times than you’d care to count and you know the rules better than you know your ABCs. You’re the only one of your friends who takes notes while watching your favorite scary movies. You’ve even devised a few devastatingly clever escape plans of your own, just in case you ever wind up in a nightmare situation…


You’re a solid gold legend, up there with Ripley, Sidney Prescott, Nancy Thompson and Laurie Strode. You known better than to say “I’ll be right back”. You don’t drink or do drugs, and you sure as heck aren’t going to be tricked by even the toughest horror trivia question. Stand proud, Mastermind – you’ll survive the most heinous horror movie, even if most of your friends don’t.
