Can you recreate a scene from a well known horror movie (or other piece of dark fiction)?

Be creative!

 

Start your comment with the title of the fiction you're going for.

The Terminator

I saw an Article on the BBC today that said two 'Intelligent' robots had to be shut down when they started communicating in a language that the scientists couldn't understand. Made me think of The Terminator...

 

Facebook abandoned an experiment after two artificially intelligent programs appeared to be chatting to each other in a strange language only they understood.

The two chatbots came to create their own changes to English that made it easier for them to work – but which remained mysterious to the humans that supposedly look after them.

The bizarre discussions came as Facebook challenged its chatbots to try and negotiate with each other over a trade, attempting to swap hats, balls and books, each of which were given a certain value. But they quickly broke down as the robots appeared to chant at each other in a language that they each understood but which appears mostly incomprehensible to humans.

The Shining.

I was on holiday recently and saw my son at the end of one of the corridors in our hotel. It put me in mind of the hotel in the shining. Creepy.

    Real simple: Who would win in a fight between two of movie's / fiction's greatest beasts / bad guys. If you'd like to offer you own pairing, start your comment with the two characters in question.

    In this category, general means just that. These are the sorts of things I'm thinking of: The latest book you've read / your favourite book The most recent film you've watched / your favourite film Any paranormal occurences you've experienced What would you do if you found out the world was ending a week on Wednesday? Who would you want to be holed up with in a post-apocalyptic world? Any topic you think that people may be interested in (horror and dark fiction, probably) Images of you recreating classic horror scenes (!) News items that have caught your eye Start a topic and away you go!
