Pressing Questions

This week, I asked horror fans what is your favourite archetypal horror setting?

The mansion on the hill, the haunted psychiatric hospital, the graveyard at night; sometimes, the best character in a horror story is actually the setting.

Erzabet kept it simple with her response:

I love creepy houses and mental ward stories.

While KL gave up a little more detail:

The creepy house in the woods with the hidden basement and creaking doors. And when that trap door opens with the ominous creak…yeah its spine tingling.

And Karen sets her scene perfectly:

I prefer the edge of the wood – not the cabin in the woods (also a great setting – not my favourite). Imagine the edge of the wood. Your protagonists are there. They not know how they got there. There’s the dark wood behind them, the sunny landscape in front of them. They sense something they do not see. They do not know where ‘it’ is.
