Flashback To The Indiana Toilet Monster

I wrote about the Indiana Toilet Monster in 2008 and I decided to republish it for  Fandango’s Flashback Friday to honor the  brave souls her brought about Toilet Paper Scare of 2020. These curious Souls who were told their lives were in danger from an unknown strain of Covid  and collectively they  decided toilet paper….TOILET PAPER would save us all, so they ran out and bought as much of it as they could and caused a shortage of, yes.

Toilet Paper.

Let’s get to it:

The Indiana  Toilet Monster

First published in 2008

The toilet monster is a girl named Carmen who was pushed down into a sewer by her classmates and died. Carmen Whitehead lived in Indiana, so the story goes- and for some reason it’s important to mention that so I did.

Okay…back to the story.

So shortly after Carmen meets her death in the Sewer this post shows up at MySpace:

If you don’t repost this saying:

They Pushed Her Down The Sewer

Carmen will get you…

To fill you in, Carmen from Indiana will come up from your Shower or Toilet and drag you down to where she is in the sewers and then she’ll kill you.

I think it would be way more efficient to kill you first, chop you up into bite size pieces and then flush you down the toilet.

I did however enjoy this story with it’s murder teeny tiny murder planning  flaw because I can’t help but to wonder how many of you will think about Carmen The Indiana Toilet Monster the next time you visit the smallest room in the house.

I think that’s pretty darn funny.

Urban Legends…. they are more then amusing stories they are the gift that keeps on giving.

Want To See Something Really Scary?

These are the kinds of films that make me wish I could write screenplays.

I grew up hearing stories like this first film ” The Medium ” and with that I learned about, pacing, the importance of bringing images- sometimes a piece at a time-  like a jigsaw into your tale,  and the fact that the supernatural world exists in everything around us and that the line dividing the world of the living from the world of the dead isn’t really a line at all.

It’s more like a suggestion.

I did like both movie versions of the ” The Ring “,  but l loved the book more then both of the films. The book went into more detail  ( of course ) But the scripts were so well done that leaving those parts out didn’t hurt the story.

The screenplays for both films were excellent.

Not a horror film- but the screenplay- woof- fabulous writing:
