4 word horror stories: are they possible?

On a Facebook horror group, someone put forward the challenge to write a horror story in four words. Well, not sure you can, really . . . you can only just get it going.

But the idea is that you can maybe give someone the creeps, or create a bit of tension, in a very short space; shorter than a haiku (and you know hard those are!). Maybe it’s a bit possible. Here’s a few I’ve thought up:

Ouiji board? Let’s try!

Drain opens: out crawls–

Accidentally stumble; blade flashes!

Keys drop, stuck outside.

Moon rises; boyfriend hairy!

Oh no, not again!

Sam; it’s a cemetery!

Slug crawls in ear . . .

–Okay, that’s enough for now!

But if you would like a longer horror story, have a listen to this! (It’s got possums, a severed finger and a diamond ring!)
