For the 12 Days of Christmas, FEARnet is running a set of 12 one-minute animated videos called Fear Academy, and they've given Dread Central an exclusive early look at the episode entitled "When the Lights Go Out". The short cartoons demonstrate the lessons we all know and love about horror films: the virgin lives, don’t drink, clowns and dolls = death, and never say "I’ll be back."

With everyone out desperately trying to find the best deals and save the most money on this hellish shopping day known as Black Friday, it's really easy to lose your shit, become frustrated, and nearly end up trampled or in jail.
If science and movies have taught us one thing, it's that gene-splicing and playing God is never a good thing.
