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:

  1. Oh yes, there will be blood

  2. They’re here

  3. Fine, walk home then*

  4. Sometimes, dead is better

  5. They’re coming to get you, Barbara

  6. When there is no more room in Hell, the dead will walk the earth

  7. Normal is an illusion. What is normal for the spider is chaos for the fly

  8. It’s not the house that’s haunted, it’s your son

  9. It’s just the wind

  10. The last man on earth sat alone in a room. There was a knock at the door

  11. We all go a little mad sometimes

  12. He came home

  13. It’s Halloween; I guess everyone’s entitled to one good scare

  14. We’ve traced the call, it’s coming from inside the house

  15. Whatever you do, don’t fall asleep

  16. I’m your number one fan
