Ketchup With Us #4

Halloween is looming so Mel & I have decided to scare the __________ out of ourselves.

(Choose as many as apply.)

  1. heck/hell/snot/crap/shit
  2. daylights (living, everliving and everloving )
  3. dickens
  4. bejesus
  5. wits/willies

It’s time to Ketchup With Us about horror films. I am an enormous coward in this area. Which is why I expect a huge thank you from each and every one of you for the field work I put into this writing prompt. With the moral support of my friend, Vanessa, I summoned every shred of my courage to drag myself to see the latest screamer to hit theaters – House at the End of the StreetSeriously, since I saw that horrifying movie last week, I have lain (I hate that stupid word) in bed having to pee but paralyzed for an hour in the middle of the night. More than once. Thanks to my crippling fears, I’m probably well on my way to a UTI.

But this behavior is nothing new for me. I think it all started with this movie. (You go ahead and watch. I’m covering my eyes and ears.)

(Peeking from under hands) Is it over? Okay, good. For a quick explanation of this link-up, click here. In short, Mel and I will post a picture or video with a writing prompt on the 1st and 15th of every month. All you need to do is respond in 57 words or less. In any form. We love creativity. And, with each prompt, we’ll feature a writer from the previous link-up. Which reminds me …

Our esteemed Ketchup With Us Featured Writer for today is …

  1. Whre would I begin?! Considering I have made it a point to watch and revisit the worst B-horror flicks I can find. Will check notes, and select the worst ;).

  2. if I ever enter the world of twitter, I am so doing this!

    • I’m confused. Which happens more than I want to admit. You don’t have to be on Twitter. Come play!

      Hell, even non-bloggers can play and just post their entries in the comments.

  4. hard to explain, but i ended up seeing this movie when I was like 11 -1981 (someone we knew got cable) and it gave me nightmares.

  5. I’m confused. Did you SEE the movie in 1981 or is the NAME of the movie 1981? 🙂 …
    Either way, we’d love for you to come play, Lance. 57 words. Or less.

    Please allow me to demonstrate:

    Family moves into neighborhood. Mom defies gravity in football jersey. Clown attacks boy. Steak vomits on counter. Dude hired to film it all peels face off. And girl gets sucked into TV. Why? Because house was built atop community of dead Native Americans. And Coach is pissed.

    You can name that tune, right?

      • Correct. I realize this one wasn’t much of a challenge as I was going for a simple demonstration. Maybe you’ll join us with one of your own?

        Welcome to ODNT. I appreciate the kind words and will be happy to venture over to your neck of the woods once I’ve given you a chance to throw all the dirty dishes in the oven and light a candle. (What? It’s a great way to create an air of “clean” in 60 seconds.)

  6. don’t know you. never read one of your posts. but based on that blog name alone – i’m in and following. brilliant.
