Take a walk with me to.....
The Dark Side!
The Dark side, to me, is about things that go bump in the night. It's about sitting around the camp fire and scaring the crap out of yourself with ghost stories. It's about making anything happen with your mind. The Dark Side is about seeing a cute clown that makes kids laugh and turning it into
the scariest creature on the planet.
It's about other planes, universes, dark holes. The unexplainable. It's about being able to think of things outside of the box. It's about being able to bring people's darkest fears out in the open and turning them into someone's reality. To speak the unspeakable and then to be able to write about it.
Stephen King dubbed the king of Horror. He can write the scariest horror stories in the whole world and rank in the top three horror novelists of the year EVERY TIME. Do you ever wonder what goes through Stephen King's head? His book "Stand By Me" is one of my favorite books and movies of all times. It's not necessarily because of the plot of them searching for a dead body. It's because of the relationship between the characters. Each one of them having certain characteristics the reader (or watcher) falls in love with or falls in hate with throughout the movie. Then "Misery" comes along. He totally captures the reader in the 'what's gonna happen next' spider web and weaves them completely through until the end. Always making the end a- not-what-you-would-expect-out-of-a-normal-every-day-writer's-ending. This guy is good. He inspires me to write the creepy stuff.....
So when you lie awake in bed tonight wondering what the next day's going to bring remember to say a little prayer before you go to sleep. The prayer that protects you from all the little things that go bump in the night. From all the ghost stories that are told around the camp fire. To protect you from being whisked away during the middle of the night from the monsters in your nightmares. From all that lingers in the silence of the darkness. But, most importantly......remember to sleep with one eye open. Just incase one of them might escape........
