Who hasn't set back and imagined what it would be like to be in a horror movie? The dark child of fantasy has permeated pop culture and media outlets in a strong and lasting way. It is in our TV shows, convention halls and even our detergent commercials. I mean for someone like me who has fed off the horror genre like mother's milk since childhood, this is a wonderful time in entertainment and storytelling. It is also a wealth of information about what not to do in order to survive a horror situation, or as I call it a Horrorocalypse!
A Horrorocalypse could be anything from Vampires rising up and enslaving humanity, zombies swarming our neighborhoods and ripping into our neighbors' flesh. Aliens, deadites, werewolves, the possibilities are endless as to the situations that could see civilization crumble, even ghosts could potentially be plotting a tack over of our realm because they just love the way our fear tastes! You never know, So what will you do to try and survive. It is a thought worth thinking! I have a few suggestions and a short 5 essentials list to help me. Do you have yours?
The team over at Man Crates poses this very question. What would you want to have in order to survive a horror movie situation? Well obvi a crowbar would have to be on anyone's list because that is the whole hook with what Man Crates does. They offer gifts for men that come in a crate that can only be opened with a crowbar. Of course Man Crates gifts are year round, but since this is the season when the veil between our world and the supernatural world is at its thinnest, anything is possible. Demons, ghosts, zombies, slashers, any number of beasties could be waiting to burst down your doors, ravage your communities, and even eat the kiddies! So you need to be prepared.
Personally I hope my crate contains my 5 essential items for such a situation as the Horrorocalypse.
1. The apocalypse survival kit:
2. The Vampire hunter kit:
3. A crossbow/arrows:
4. A revolver with silver bullets:
5. Edible Plants Guide For Survival:
