Two authors hilariously take down classic horror tropes

By November 11, 2018Authors, On Writing

Horror trope classics like a masked killer, groups of teens being slaughtered, and an almost guaranteed sequel, are great fun but easily mocked for their predictiveness. Writers Sam Sykes and Chuck Wendig explored a few of those tired horror clichés in an inspired and hilarious way, and the Twitter thread is still, over a year later, entertaining all who stumble across it.

If you are one of the lucky few who have yet to see the magic unfold, here it is in all its glory.

Don’t forget to follow Sam and Chuck on Twitter to enjoy their wit firsthand.

Like all horror stories it starts out fine… But it soon goes very quickly down into a Classic Horror Trope rabbit hole, never to return.
