Star Of The Show

Thriller / Horror

Chapter 1

Blood and guts stream across the screen, I laugh uproariously. The only thing scary about this movie is the looks I’m getting from the couple in front they need to get a life. I mean seriously her hiding her head in his shoulder is a sure sign of first date - make him feel brave and strong, a load of crap.

I’ve long since stopped going to movies for anything to do with romantic notions. I like to immerse myself into the cinema screen and not be bothered by some idiot fumbling beside me. I mean if I want to do that the last place I’d do it is in the cinema. I like my full attention on the task in hand, if you know what I mean.

No these days I have bigger concerns when I go to the cinema, I like to go to horrors because if I can I like to re-enact what I’ve seen, I’m the ultimate copycat killer. Lazy in murder as I am in everything, screams and gasps are easily hidden with the inane crowd that flocks to these, I’m merely giving the survivors something they can remember for ever.

I usually go for people on their own, the loners that not many will miss, I had one who wasn’t discovered for three days. Three days, I haven’t been to that cinema since, I mean for fuck sake, clean the place. Today may be different as I can’t think of a more deserving couple to serve my needs than the ones in front. If they're not glaring at me to stop laughing, but laugh I must, there gazing into each others eyes instead of the screen. Sickeningly, simpering twats, turn my stomach more than the movie ever could.

Oh cool, only about twenty minutes left and it looks like the couple’s going to get it. Yeah, while their kissing straight through her head with the knife, he turns around and looks in horror as does his counterpart sitting in front of me. I decide to do a little twist because he really is an obnoxious prick, on screen he’s stabbed in the heart while he leans over to try and restrain the attacker. I go straight for the throat, great neither has the chance to scream, they collapse into each other, to the casual observer in the darkness they’ll look like there getting it on. I’ve no need to wait until the end I’ve had my happy ending, satisfaction and release coursing through my veins, heaven. I can’t resist taking a quick photo, a selfie with them behind me, these phones are great, I can upload and mess around with it to my hearts content when I get home.

I love the movies, I always end up the star of the show, always the villain never the hero.

I buy more popcorn and coke I have work to do when I get home. My screen may be smaller but the viewing more enjoyable.

Matthias Hehn: Well written, could hardly put it down. The story is not too far fetched, a drug that messes up basic human emotions, and the effects on people and society as a whole. Hope there will be another book in the same style

DarkWolf .12: Very interesting plot! Had me up for the entire night. Keep up the good work 👍

Aditya Harikrish: It had me on tenterhooks since the very first page. Excllently developed plot and characters. You've done an amazing job of building a fantasy world from scratch. Hats off to you!A sequel is a must.

William Elliott Kern: Long story, the plot uncovered midway through the story. From beginning, the story was fast moving. Then dragged on for quite some time. The Author was good in describing her characters, their clothing, etc. but a lot of that disclosure distracted from the story moving fast.Not withstanding, the...

Nishant Jain: I felt as if i am watching a movie,not reading a book. The story was definitely interesting. It was more of action than horror for me. There are a few grammatical and spelling errors I came across and at times I found it difficult to imagine some things which the author is trying to convey, but o...

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...

briggy1998: I really enjoyed the book, even though I had to skip a few lines, because at times it could get a bit disturbing🙆🏻😅What I would have liked is if you could have given a bit more insight into jack's and fiona's relationship, especially the epilogue was a bit short 😬Other than that an amazing story!

C.K. Bachman: Just read the first chapter. Love how the main character thinks and is conflicted over his wife and the trickery he uses on her.

europeanlove: I gotta hand it to you. I love reading. I read books everyday. When the book is good I can read it in probably 13 hours. Your story was amazing. Great prose, very imaginative. Incredible dialogue. I am deeply impressed. Keep it up.
