A car accident on a lonely, dark road causes Ellen to encounter "a moon-faced, silver-toothed monster with a knife." And this is a killer who is not about to let the opportunity for a new victim slip by. As Ellen runs into the woods, he eagerly chases, but what happens when the prey chooses to fight back?
The writing here in this story completely puts the reader in the scene. I felt dread, fear, and horror, all mixed together. When he slashed at her, I jerked back. That is just how much I felt part of this story. And when Ellen came across that macabre scene in the woods, it chilled me and made me sick.
This short story is horrifying and scary, just one moment of suspense after another. As I finished the story, the author got me with an unexpected twist, a sure jab almost as sharp as that knife, and I loved it. This story is about a thirty to forty-minute read that is very well done, disturbing and gruesome, and full of the type of scenes that stick in your mind and hang tight. I fully expect to have a nightmare about this tonight.
