I like this type of very short stories built around a classic horror theme. I think this story can become more interesting with more work on both characters and atmosphere. I believe that with a more thoughtful choice of words, the amosphere can be made more interesting. The story needn't be much longer but needs reworking. That takes time and many attempts. At this time the story is still rough and obvious. The moment the evil comes could be delivered less obviously. The character of the girl needs work so that the reader can care more for her. At the moment she witnesses the story and allows us to see it through her eyes but we don't get to actually feel for her.
More work needed, but this story will work.

Also, the extreme violence and resulting blood-letting from a mechanical device conveyed a senseless and narrow attempt to eliminate censorship - a kind of... read
A review of Road to Williamsportby **DELETED ACCOUNT** on 02/23/2014This is my first review in a while, so I confess to being out of practice, and apologize in advance if my review sucks. Concept: Good The closest movie I can think of off the top of my head is "Bad News Bears" [both versions, though I prefer the original]. Is this concept original? No, but then I take the view that nothing is original, everything is just a new take on an... read
