Happy Halloween

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.
