For this week’s Red Writing Hood prompt, we’re inviting you to truly scare us.
Here’s what you’ll need to do:
Compose a post in the form of a text160 characters.
Your text must elicit or express fear.
Though this initially looks like more of a fiction prompt, we challenge our non-fiction writers to take a stab at it as well. (Stab! Scary!)
Come back on Friday, October 21st, to link up

I recently saw the french film The Vanishing taht was remade into the crappy Keifer Sutherland/Jeff Bridges movie. That's where I got "banality of evil" for my piece.

Being buried alive is what that French film is about. It's so terrifying. The ultimate horror because of how hopeless you feel.

good job

There is nothing worse than the idea of being buried alive. Pure terror. I, too, felt the panic.
