Line of Fright!
Are you a fan of horror movies?
Specifically, horror movies with plot lines?
If so (or even if not so), Tales from the Moonlit Path has a Halloween-themed writing contest for you! Pluck a line from the list below to craft a story of under 2000 words. Write your original story without re-telling the storyline of the movie from which it came. Including the plucked line in your story is optional.
From the website, here are the movie lines:
Oh yes, there will be blood
Fine, walk home then*
Sometimes, dead is better
They’re coming to get you, Barbara
When there is no more room in Hell, the dead will walk the earth
Normal is an illusion. What is normal for the spider is chaos for the fly
It’s not the house that’s haunted, it’s your son
It’s just the wind
The last man on earth sat alone in a room. There was a knock at the door
We all go a little mad sometimes
He came home
It’s Halloween; I guess everyone’s entitled to one good scare
We’ve traced the call, it’s coming from inside the house
Whatever you do, don’t fall asleep
I’m your number one fan
