Scary Elevator


     A reality TV show from Brazil does a good job scaring up some laughs from the audience with an amazing practical joke that leaves the audience in stitches and the victims in tears. The fear we've instilled in our culture of children is so ingrained that the mere presence of a child can be discomforting, let alone when one suddenly appears and disappears like this.
     Getting a good grasp of what scares and what doesn't is every horror authors job, and instilling fear through words is a difficult task at times. The readers imagination is our greatest weapon, and the best ammunition is common fears used in unique and unheard of ways, like above.
