Frederic Brown’s Knock is a horror story meant to be left completely open to interpretation, the ‘horror’ behind it being entirely by implication. It is also only two sentences long.
This little story, published in 1948, has prompted many other aspiring authors and publishers to tell their own spin on the concept of something truly terrifying in only two sentences… But that’s for people with actual talent What I’m after is something far more comedic and low-effort.
The goal of this game is to come up with a two-sentence ‘horror’ story, which either presents a scary topic so laughably bad it’s, well, laughable:
Or something constructed for the utmost comedic effect with no real concept of horror behind it:
There’s some rules to this as well:
Two Sentences per Story - not one, not three or more, just two. Maximize the comedic effect of those two sentences as best you can.
Try to make the stories actually funny - we aren’t here to write actual horror or non-comedic material. If you’re not sure people would understand the joke you’re trying to make, see if you can construct another one.
All TTV Message Boards rules apply. And have fun, of course!
Now let’s hear your horror stories! And remember - there’s nothing scarier than what people on the Boards call a sense of humor.
