Scared witless... So guys...when you write for fright, what are the scariest tricks you can come up with? What devices do you use to make the viewer's popcorn jump out of the tub? Any writerly tricks or cinematic devices you'd like to share would be very enlightening. I have my own repertoire, of course, but I am interested in other viewpoints on it. Ketchup-free zone! No blood and guts, please. Also, care to nominate your most spine-shuddering movie ever? Mine is MISERY. (Screenplay William Goldman, Novel Stephen King, Starring Kathy Bateman and James Caan).
