List Rules Vote for the slasher films for which you could have escaped and been the last one standing

List of the top horror movies that you think you could have survived, as ranked by horror movie buffs. Not every horror movie is about inescapable, supernatural serial killers that are after anyone and everyone. A few horror movies are actually survivable, especially by those intelligent individuals who have studied the rules of horror movies. Today, people are much more savvy that the average horror movie victim. When something spooky happens in our homes, we know enough to move out. If the ocean is infested with man eating sharks, we leave the bathing suit at home. These days we know better than to check into a creepy motel, piss off psychotic truck drivers, and spend the weekend in a shoddy cabin, miles from civilization.

The movies on this list of survivable horror movies, while terrifying in their own way,are much easier to survive than the average jump scare, serial killer horror movie. What horror movies do you think you could survive? Would you know better than to hang out with a possessed chick? Do you have what it takes to survive the night in a haunted house?

This list of horror movies you could have survived is filled with movies with villains that are survivable, whether you avoid the danger altogether, make only smart decisions, or escape from human, animal, or supernatural captors when you see your chance. If your favorite survivable horror film isn't on the list of horror films you could have lived through, make sure to add it.
