Quoted from RayW

Perhaps this should be the a central theme to this OWC.

Screw conservative.

Go balls out - with legs.

What are some of the most "out there", hail Mary passes, gopherbroke horror stories out there?





I think the obvious "balls out" horrors are the liks of Martyrs (pure nihilsm), Saw, Hostel (which was a disappointing film for me in writing terms, but a gold premise) and on a slightly different note...Human Centipede.

Something else to consider is that it's sometimes a visual hook, or a character that helps.

I mentioned a film called Mama, it was the ghost they made that really caused a stir...it's very fast and scary. Anyone could have written the actual story, it's as simple as they come. If you can somehow create some novel visual it can really help to raise it up.

FWIW, here are some trailers for some pretty decent horror films at one particular festival.

Wow,

Some really great ideas, if not for the October OWC, but for future OWCs.  

I pretty much have the theme and genre pretty well baked, but some of the suggestions have given me food for thought and I've already made some tweaks to the challenge.

With regard to the monologue discussion.  Doubtful it will happen for this October OWC, but something to think about for a future OWC.  Sean's Alone was quite nearly what this October's OWC was turning to, but a bird flew by and I got distracted.
