There is no such thing as bleak black Friday… the repetitive, predictably bad day of the week, month or year is simply the stuff of horror movies.
Superstitions pray on our fears and make us a prisoner. Bad things don’t just happen on Fridays, they happen every single waking hour of the week. Bad things can happen when you least expect them…
There is human truth in every type of genre and a good writer learns how to tap into that genre feeling when he/she is creating a screenplay. If you are writing horror, you need to grasp that very human fear of the unknown that lurks inside the dingy corners of every soul.
Then of-course, there is triumph over horror, the surviving, the overcoming, the moving forward, the reclamation of peace… but only for a time… and that is our story.
