#1 I’ll go with Candyman. I can avoid saying Candyman three times in 24 hours. How hard can it be to not say Candyman?

#2 The predator. I’m weak and a woman no predator would risk being made fun of for killing such a pathetic prey.

#3 Probably the ring, she takes like 7days to show up. I don’t even have to change my habits.

#4 Tempted to say the babadook bc i could just buy and feed him worms, so I not only get the money, but also an insanely awesome and relatively cheap pet.

#5 I think I’d go with Death Bed: The Bed That Eats, from 1977’s *Death Bed: The Bed That Eats,* because Death Bed: The Bed That Eats is a bed.

#7 How about Gremlins?

They’re basically a cute Furby unless you give them water. And even if, they’re mostly annoying and I could definitely take one of them for 24 hours but also chilling with the “cute” version doesn’t sound so bad either.

Okay okay, I meant Mogwai you nitpicky basterds ??.

#8 Paul Reiser’s character from Aliens. He’s the real villain of the movie, not the Alien Queen, and I think I could take him.

#9 Zombies. I can hide from a Zombie for 24hrs.

#12 I have actually thought about this a lot ever since I read Christine way too young. I think it will be quite easy to stay safe from a possessed car.

#13 The killer from scream bc it’s literally just a guy in a mask. Get some pepper spray and I’m golden.

#16 Freddy. We came to an understanding long ago when I was laying in my bed after watching A Nightmare on Elm Street when I was a kid. I just said “you know Freddy, we cool, you’re not bad, in fact I just think you’re misunderstood, please don’t invade my dreams and kill me.” I haven’t died yet so I’m still working under the assumption the we cool.

#21 Dracula. My skin is so pale and I eat so much garlic all I need to do is flash him and say hello and he’ll disintegrate.

#22 Michael Myers or Jason. Those a******s just walk everywhere. I’d go on a road trip in my car. Maybe circle around a few times to honk at them and flip them off.

#23 The Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man. I’ll just catch a flight somewhere, he’ll never catch me. Also, he’s easy to see.

#24 Easy, the mummy. He can’t bend his legs, so he’s definitely gonna run slowly.

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.
