Dreadful in Red

Everybody is a book of blood; wherever we’re opened, we’re red. – Clive Barker’s Books of Blood.

I don’t read horror very often. It’s too graphic for me. I am interested in the plots, the characters, plot twists and how everything builds to the conclusion. But, horror for me is too close to reality I guess. After all the horror that works best is horror we believe really could happen to us as ordinary, everyday people living in the ordinary, everyday world.

Could you come up with a plot for a horror story? How would you pull it all together, building up to the final, dreadful ending?
