I thought it might be nice to take a break from out unit on Asia and India to spend a little time talking about the things that scare us in movies and books. How do authors and directors get us to scream and jump in our seats? We looked at a couple of short films and discussed what made them disturbing. Then we looked at “two sentence” short stories. How can we convey a sense of horror in only two sentences?
I asked you to write your own two sentence stories. I’ve included the transcripts below.
There is no homework. We’ll dive back into our India/Asia unit tomorrow.
Have a safe and happy Halloween.
