I am participating in a 30-day challenge. This time it is all about horror! If you know anything about us here at the Fort, you would know that we are hardcore horror fans. Each October, we watch a movie night that we dub “The 31 Nights of Horror.”
Day 9 Prompt: Dumnmest Character in Horror
There are a few to choose from here, namely Wendy from The Shining, Darry Jenner from Jeepers Creepers, and maybe even Ash from The Evil Dead franchise, dare I say it.
