Halloween Stories to Scare You

This week started off with Halloween, so in class we watched some short scary video clips. Some we watched with and without sound, then we brainstormed the features of scary stories and what made the stories scary. Some of our class made their own scary story videos and others did peer assessments. 


What do you think makes a good scary story?

  1. Great examples of digital storytelling that illustrate the power of music/ sound to bring text to life as well as evoking emotion from an audience. Nice job, Room 13 - scary stuff :)

  2. Hi Ben, Macane and Thunder
    I enjoyed watching your stories thanks for sharing them. I particularly liked the language you used throughout your stories and the music. Did you create the music yourself? Did you consider taking scary images of yourself? Keep up the great work. Stephanie

    Aloha from Hawaii! We loved your scary youtube videos! We enjoyed many aspects of your videos. We loved the lettering, pictures, sounds, background, effects, juicy words (which helped us imagine it) and the suspense in your videos. We will recommend these videos to our family.

  9. Thanks for all the nice comments, It was easy to create the slides on Movie Maker but we did not make our own music. I have never thought that you could take a picture of yourself and use it as a scary picture. The music was downloaded from a virus free website, but next time we will try and make the music. Thank you for recommending it to your families I hope it scares them :)

  10. I enjoyed all the scary videos in class, they were all really good. I think Thunders was the best out of the two, the sound effects really go with the words I think that was quite clever :)
