Zombie attack!

21 Oct

This week, Words on Edge asked to compose a text–160 characters–that would either elicit or express fear…

Girl, answer your phone! OMG – hell breaking loose – help! Stuck btwn desk & shelf in dark office. Think they’re gone now but blood everywhere and they ate Mike!

What creepy text can you come up with?

    Oh, man…can you imagine receiving that?!! Zombies are one of those stupid fears that I probably shouldn’t have. But you never know…

    Great text!

    “they ate Mike.” That made me giggle.

    Poor Mike. Sacrified for plot advancement.

    I’m a fan of the walking dead and I liked this – it was scary, but I think the last line keeps it kind of light and adds some character development.

    Zombies! Love it! I really like the creepiness and fear mingled with the dark humor. Nicely done.

    zombies are fun…have you seen Death Valley? It’s a tv show on MTV. Hilarious. This text would fit right in

    I get the sense like Mike was the dude in the red shirt…

    Poor Mike! Yikes!

    Oh, Mike.

    Sort of Simon Pegg scary. Love it.

    The creepiest part might be that I laughed at the final line. Zombie humor, gotta love it.

    I love it and if I hadn’t read the title then that last sentence would have been more scary! I wouldn’t have know what it was & would have to use my mind.
