The more the merrier for me! I've always wanted to try below the surface.

Almost time again. And the Spring Write of is theme based, that being the threat needs to fall within the set (usually 2 or 3) theme/genres we pick out of a field of 5-7 prolly.

Normally I'd put a voting thread up the 1st Monday of March, but we haven't even been narrowing those choices down to a poll manageable number, so the poll may have to wait till the 2nd Monday of March.

A quick copy and paste gives us this existing list of ideas:

Atomic Horror
Zombie Outbreak
Bad Blood - Bad Families
Below the Surface
Creature Feature
Crossroads
- (A soul has been sold to some evil power, how's that turning out and/or does someone want to break the contract)
Eco-Horror
Foreign Bodies
- Medical/Science gone bad
Historical
Holiday
Horror-Noir
Institution
Occult
Outer Space
Over The Top
Slasher
Supernatural Menace


So who likes what? Any theme not listed anyone would like to put forth?

I spent eight years trying to reach her, and then another seven trying to keep her locked up because I realized that what was living behind that cow's eyes was purely and simply... evil.

My three are Crossroads, Eco-Horror, Occult.

Also I have one more suggestion - Grimmer than Grimm . Horror shorts based either in a classic fairy tales, using elements from or re-write a popular fairy tale or nursery ryhme. For example -Have the Piped Piper as a pest contoller turned child killer in modern day. Or write something that's like Shrek with sex and violence.

Another possible suggestion - Childhood's End. Tales written from the point of view of a child , it can be about irrational founded/unfounded childhood fears. The child/children facing a supernatural evil or something far more earthly. Or even their innocence being lost when they stumble upon some dark and ugly secret in the adult world.
