Top 10 Horrific Moments

As we prepare for the tenth anniversary of Bellairsia, we’re using our gradually enjoyable Twitter feed to share some memorable moments and commentary in the form of Top Ten lists.

It’s been said humor and horror play off each other and are often two sides of the same coin. These two extremes run rampart through a number of Bellairs' writings, where scenes can change from laugh-aloud funny to nail-biting terrifying over the course of a few sentences.

This month we’re diving deep into the other end of the spectrum: our top ten horrific moments.

Editor’s note: we formatted our blandly-overworked Twitter feed years later. The tweets are gone but here is the original list:
  • #10. Mrs. Woodley Welcomes Childermass as a Guest [MWC]
  • #9. The Night the Lights Went Out in Stillwater [LWT]
  • #8. Trapped Inside the Opera House [DHO]
  • #7. The “They Took My Eyes” Guy [EKR]
  • #6. The Dollhouse Skull Reappears ...again [SSS]
  • #5. Lewis Roams the Grounds of the Moss Farm [FS]
  • #4. Rose Rita “Hears” Mrs. Bigger’s Dog [LWR]
  • #3. Prospero Calling Melichus’ Name [FF]
  • #2. A Car Ride Through the Back Roads of Capharnaum County [HCW]
  • #1. Fergie and the Dog on the Windrow Estate [RWG]
