Can Deep Sentinel Defeat These Classic Halloween Villains?
As October dwindles, we become fascinated by the creepy, kooky, and spooky. The Halloween season has inspired some of the most memorable villains of all time. At Deep Sentinel, our guards routinely face off with burglars, vandals, and other everyday “bad guys.” But how would Deep Sentinel’s live video surveillance solution fare against classic Halloween movie villains?
For argument’s sake, let’s say you’re inside your home on Halloween night when each of these creeps appears in your yard. Your goal is to emerge unscathed the next morning. It’s a spooky showdown to see who comes out on top and who gets “boo”-ed.
Deep Sentinel vs. Count Dracula
As seen in: Nosferatu (1922), Dracula (1931), Renfield (2023), and many other films
Winner: Deep Sentinel
Hear us out.
Yes, Dracula is certainly the most renowned vampire in all of fiction. He possesses a wide array of supernatural powers, from telepathy to shapeshifting to superhuman strength and agility. (The exact set of powers depends on which version you’re watching, of course.)
But the Count also has several notable weaknesses. One such weakness is that he can’t enter a home uninvited. The Deep Sentinel guards send away any suspicious characters who have no business being on your property, so they won’t extend an invitation to your vampire visitor without your permission. As long as you’re inside your own home, you’ll be safe.
One caveat: In some tales, vampires aren’t visible in photographs or film. So, it’s hard to say for certain whether Count Dracula would appear on your Deep Sentinel security camera feed. If someone could let us know, that would be great. Until then, our guards know to treat invisible visitors as intruders, not guests.
Deep Sentinel vs. Gozer
As seen in: Ghostbusters (1984) and a few spin-offs
Winner: Deep Sentinel, with one important system modification
If you’re having trouble remembering Gozer, you might be more familiar with the ghostly demigod’s alter ego: the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man. Fluffy, cute, and over 100 feet tall, this villain is anything but sweet. Until you turn it into a s’more, that is.
How can Deep Sentinel protect you from this ghastly creature? Easy. You simply need to instruct the guards that the police aren’t the right person to contact when Gozer’s knocking down your door. That leaves one important question… who you gonna call?
Ghostbusters, of course.
Deep Sentinel vs. Michael Myers
As seen in: The Halloween franchise (1978–present)
Winner: Deep Sentinel… maybe
This one is debatable. It’s hard to say that anyone can really defeat Michael Myers, who seems to be pretty invulnerable for a seemingly human character. But with enough advance warning, you might be able to escape him.
When installed properly, Deep Sentinel security cameras can detect intruders the instant they set foot on your property. Remote guards then evaluate the situation and call the police if there’s trouble… such as a knife-wielding psychopathic killer like Michael Myers.
Depending on how fast Myers approaches and how strong your doors and windows are, you might have enough time to hide or get away while you wait for the cops to arrive. Whether the police will be able to put an end to Myers’ reign of terror is another matter entirely.
You might just have to wait until the next reboot or sequel to divine your fate.
Deep Sentinel vs. Samara Morgan
As seen in: The Ring (2002), The Ring Two (2005), Rings (2017)
Prank calls and telemarketers might be annoying, but if there’s one person you don’t want to hear on the other side of the phone, it’s Samara. You might also know her as “that creepy girl who climbs out of the TV to kill people.” When you watch her cursed video, she courteously calls to let you know that you have seven days to live. And she’ll find you, no matter where you are.
Sorry, folks. In the battle between a security camera system and a supernatural creature that kills people via video, you have to hand the victory to Samara.
There are much more practical ways to avoid a confrontation with her, such as not playing strange VHS tapes that you find lying around. Why do you still have a VCR, anyway?
Deep Sentinel vs. The Sanderson Sisters
As seen in: Hocus Pocus (1993), Hocus Pocus 2 (2022)
Winner: Deep Sentinel
The Sandersons might not be the most formidable witches in movie history, but they’re among the most memorable. Winifred, Sarah, and Mary have an arsenal of spells and potions at their disposal. And they can fly on broomsticks—or virtually any broom-shaped cleaning device.
But these ladies spent a few centuries dormant after their execution in 17th-century Salem. Upon awakening in the present day, they are thoroughly baffled by newfangled technology like sprinkler systems and roads. If they came face-to-face with security cameras that can talk, they might just pass out of fright.
For extra protection from these wacky witches, create a circle of salt around your house. And don’t light any black flame candles.
Deep Sentinel vs. Zombies
As seen in: Night of the Living Dead (1968), Dawn of the Dead (1978), 28 Days Later (2002), Zombieland (2009), and countless others
Winner: Deep Sentinel
How zombies look and behave depends on what movie you’re watching, but you know the general prototype: reanimated corpses that shuffle around, looking for brains to munch on. They’re undead, relentless, and very hungry.
Typically, though, zombies aren’t the smartest or most coordinated creatures around. And they’re easily distracted by loud sounds and bright lights. That’s where Deep Sentinel comes in handy.
Let’s assume you’re prepared for the zombie apocalypse and have barricaded yourself inside your home. When your Deep Sentinel cameras discern strange activity, the camera’s red light activates. A guard will instantly recognize the shambling figures for what they are and sound the system’s sirens. With this decoy in place, you can escape, fortify your doors, or fight back—whichever suits you best.
Deep Sentinel may not be able to defeat every ghoul, ghost, and goblin around, but it will protect you from more common threats like intruders. With Deep Sentinel’s live security monitoring your property, you don’t have to be scared on Halloween night—or any other, for that matter.
