Short Horror Story


Since it's Halloween, rather than a what if, I thought I'd try my hand at a two sentence horror story. (Thanks for the idea, Jeanne.)

If you want some really good ones, go here. And if you'd like to try it out yourself, I'd love to see what you come up with in the comments (or go ahead and link to your own post).

After days starving, trapped by the snowstorm, we thank James for his sacrifice today. But the children are going to be hungry again tomorrow.

  3. Your 2 sentence horror is excellent but I bet they could make that meat last at least a week. I have nothing frightful to write, now I must get back to my lunch. James tastes quite good, nothing fatty.

  5. So we drew lots and stared into each others round eyes as we held up our hands. One of us was going to die but none of us liked that idea. It was horrible watching who got to live until finally the short stick was drawn. Please, I'm sorry don't kill me a meek crying voice pleaded, Horrified starving eyes stared at each other hesitating. This could easily be one of them. The howling snow storm outside reminded everyone there was no escape from this dilemma. One of them spoke finally, So what!!! you played the game and we're hungry, now die! Happy Halloween - Spacerguy

    1. Considering how freaked out that story made me as a kid, it's a wonder that that's what came out when I tried my hand at this.

    1. Um, no, not really. Hard to convey in two sentences, though.

  10. What a touching story of family, togetherness, and cannibalism. Thanks for sharing. :-)
