It’s almost Halloween, which means it’s time to break out the scary movies.

And no matter where the scares are coming from, it seems all the titles have one thing in common: People attempting to run away from whatever deranged murderer, ghost, possessed demon or girl crawling out of a television (thanks for the nightmares, The Ring!) it is that is after them. But it wouldn’t be nearly as thrilling if they got away. Check out this supercut of people falling down while attempting to get away from their nightmare come true.

If nothing else, maybe this is a warning to wear proper shoes alongside your Halloween costume.
