A young woman is walking in a dark hallway, something reaches out from the dark, grabs her arm and pulls her into the darkness. At this part the movie cuts to the next scene and we wait to find out what happened to the her, if isn’t just forgotten. She’s just left as kind of anonymous or becomes a tragic figure later on.
Give the poor girl at least five minutes of your time. Write about what happens to her once she is yanked into mysterious darkness. Remember it’s not Disney, it’s horror. It’s something unspeakable (yet not unwritable). She’s just an ordinary girl, we don’t know much about her. She’s pretty, isn’t guilty of anything that causes her to come to a horrible end… but that’s just what happens. Now go ahead and write the awful truth.
