Remember when you were a kid and worried about every sound in the night? That stuff wasn’t even close to frightening compared to being ignored in social media.
All of our lives, most of us have heard (or listened for) sounds in the night. Some we might have been afraid of, some perhaps not. But what were those sounds, really? Oh, sure some have might have simply been branches scraping against the house or noisy cars driving by. Big deal. For really scary stuff you need to be a grown up and face things like bank accounts, jobs, taxation, insurance, car repair and no social media followers. Go ahead and gasp; you know you want to.
The spooky stuff:
The wolf man (unless it was the late Wolfman Jack who one of the greatest radio personalities who ever lived. That howl of his could be heard on a clear channel radio station from Mexico and later Texas (and later, later from New York). Come to think of it, yeah, Wolfman Jack might have been pretty scary too in the wrong circumstances
Any of the other dozens of monsters that Japanese filmmakers dreamed up (although they are also a bit humorous and very campy now
Rabid dogs digging under the basement (weird friend – what can I say)
Dr. Frankenstein’s monster
The list goes on of course, but this stuff doesn’t even begin to approach the REALLY scary thing, that thing that keeps grown people up at night, scared to death, struggling to overcome that most horrendous of evil…no followers. Don’t let that happen to you.
