What Hasn't Been Done in Horror Fiction?

Writing horror isn't so easy. With any type of fiction, it's difficult to think of something that hasn't already been done. With horror fiction, it's especially true. Creepy basements, loud noises from the attic, hidden rooms, Indian burial grounds, old hotels, multiple personality disorder, etc.--it's all been done before, and it's all out there. These cliches shouldn't restrain you, however. They've simply defined the space you're working in. You know what's out there, now create your own story.

  1. Honestly whatever story you write would already been done before. Horror has been a repeating cycle for years and years. Every horror movie is that same just done in many different ways.
