Inspired by Time Out's competition http://www.timeout.com/london/feature/2511...ture-of-horrorr write a horror movie pitch in 30 words. I rather like the idea, so here's one to get us started:

Bill wakes to find every door in his house locked, every window unbreakable, phones and the internet gone. Bill tries to survive, wondering if he will ever escape.

I might turn that into a Halloween animation smile.gif

Their graduation camping trip went wrong when a bear attacked. They fled to a nearby mansion, but never suspected that the insane lord was the bear's owner, and trainer...

A widow's new wife becomes infected with a bacteria that threatens her life, but his dead wife returns through the weakened body... And now she wants him dead!

Hmm... That one's quite good.

In the depths of space, a crew picks up an anomalous object. It's kept in quarantine, but the crew start dying. Is it the object, or one of their crewmates?

I'm rather enjoying this. Is anyone else going to join in?

P'shaw. Pick a location, pick a thing that can go wrong, multiply the danger. Always add isolation.

Garden
Insects
Killer insects

The Queen's gardener was locking up for the night when a buzzing noise disturbed him. The hives were alive, he must kill the Queen-bee to save the Queen!

Hmm. Not the best, but you get the idea.

The oil-rig struck something that should not have been disturbed.

The icy tundra amidst the lone Antarctic split open, and the men went tumbling in. Getting out wasn't a concern, until ice shards started falling in rhythm with maniacal laughter.

Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldnít be here if stars hadnít exploded, because the elements - the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution and for life - werenít created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way for them to get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode. So, forget God. The stars died so that you could be here today. ~Lawrence Krauss

They came for a camping holiday but the site was booked. They should never have tried the Welsh mountains... Tywyn Chainsaw Massacre.

Saw this via StumbleUpon today and reminded me of this thread so thought I'd post it:

"The Shortest Horror Story:
The last man on Earth sat alone in a room. There was a knock on the door."

Oo, that's really good smile.gif

The camping trip in Wales was going well, but when lights in the sky descended, the friends would find themselves hunted, but is one of them an imposter?

When two bosses at a company die, apparently by suicide, the third begins to see signs that he could be next.

Pink bunnies take over the earth after the one that lives with a certain web animator Doctor plots the take over. Turns out the fluffy foam is radiation resistant.

Tom died, then woke up. Then he died again. He can only break the cycle by finding the true cause of his death... And killing it.

That reminded me of a TV series called Tru Calling. It was pretty awful, but that's about the gist of it tongue.gif

It reminded me of this book where this kid had to keep reliving the first day of school until he stopped his day from going wrong.

Yeah, that one was a bit Groundhog Day but with less romance.

Okay...

The victims are only found as bones, but when the detective awakes and hears the swarm, she realises it's not a human killer.

In that line, there is the classic 'Other people'.

The cat people lived peacefully until the scourge of catnip flooded the population. Alone among idiots, one cat remembers the old days.
