If Scary Movie Characters Had Medical Alert Buttons…
Posted on October 14, 2016
Halloween is just around the corner. That means it’s time to
bust out our favorite scary movies. From the classics to recently released,
horror films are an October movie night staple. At Alert1, we couldn’t help but
notice how many scary movie characters needed a mobile
medical alert system. Here are 7 characters that could’ve used a
Coraline is a
kid-friendly Halloween movie. In the film, Coraline thought she was
in for a treat when she discovered a "perfect" parallel universe
in her new home. But, this was not the picture-perfect place it appeared to be.
When the seemingly loving new mother tries to trap her there forever, Coraline
needs help and she needs it fast! If only there was a device she could have worn
for emergencies like this.
That device should have been an Alert1 mobile medical alert
pendant. Using the pendant’s GPS locating technology, emergency help would have
been able to find her beyond the trap door of her home. She could
have gotten out of that mess and back into the arms of her real loving parents
much faster. Hopefully next time Coraline decides to go on an adventure, she
will bring along her alert device, just in case.
In the movie Halloween, Laurie went across
the street to look for her friends. They had disappeared into the house
across the way and hadn’t been seen for a while. When Laurie arrives, she
is horrified by what she finds. To her surprise, they are all dead—murdered
by Michael Myers. Suddenly, Myers pops out and begins an attempt to get her
Laurie could have really used a mobile medical alert in that
moment. By pressing her help button, our Command Center would have been
alerted. Help would have quickly arrived to her exact location. Michael Myers
would not have stood a chance against the quick response times of the Alert1
mobile medical alert. Luckily Laurie was able to survive, but Myers disappeared
into the night…never to be seen again.
House of Wax
What would you do if you couldn’t call out for help? Well,
with a medical alert device this isn’t a worry. If you press your help button and the Command Center
doesn’t hear anything on the other line, help will still be sent.
If only one of the poor girls from the horror flick House of Wax knew this. When her mouth was sealed shut, she needed
help but there was no way to call for it. However, she wouldn’t have had
this problem if she had a mobile medical alert device. Help would have come to
her rescue even with silence on her end of the line.
Night of the Living Dead
During a zombie apocalypse, a mobile medical alert is a
necessity. In Night of the Living Dead, the group trapped in the
home really could have used a medical alert. They were stuck inside a boarded
up home as zombies relentlessly tried to feast upon them. All the while, no one
even knew they were trapped there.
If only the group had a mobile medical alert, they could
have alerted the Command Center of their emergency. Police would have been
notified and help would have been sent right away. Since they didn’t have any
way of calling in help, they had to wait until the sheriff’s department finally
discovered them. During the wait, they lost a few group members to the hungry zombies.
For the couple in The
Strangers, a mobile medical alert would have saved them from their
torturous night. The couple was enjoying a normal evening at home when strange
things began to happen. Soon after, their phones were found burned and broken
by the strangers, leaving them stranded. There was no way to get help.
Yet, if they had a mobile medical alert, the couple wouldn’t
have had to worry. See, Alert1’s devices don’t hook up to landlines, or any
phone for that matter. Even if your phones are no longer working, Alert1’s
mobile medical alert will still get you the help you need.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Sally could have used a medical alert system on many
occasions throughout her saga in Texas
Chainsaw Massacre. In the film, Sally ends up being chased by a chainsaw
wielding man. Eventually Sally was captured by him and taken to his join his
twisted family. Once captured, her many attempts to free herself go
Sally could've hit her mobile medical alert button if she
had one hanging discreetly around her neck. With the system’s unlimited
range, it wouldn’t have mattered where the chainsaw man had taken her.
Sally would have had emergency services come to rescue her immediately. A
mobile medical alert could have saved her and her friends lives.
When a Stranger Calls
What should you have when being chased around by
a home intruder? Of course, a medical alert pendant! Jill Johnson
could have used one in When a Stranger
Calls. A crazy home intruder entered the home she’s babysitting in, and she
needed help fast. Instead of risking precious escape time by looking for a
phone to call 911, Jill could have pressed the help button on her device.
This would have gotten her help much faster. Instead, she is taken on a journey
of horror-something no one expects when they take a babysitting job for some
Don’t Be Like a Scary Movie Character
As you can see, seniors are not the only ones who can use a
mobile medical alert. All these scary movie characters were once ordinary
people when horror struck. Life is unpredictable. Don’t be like these horror
movie victims, unable to get help when tragedy strikes. Get a mobile medical
alert from Alert1.
