Dark , full moon nights ( a contradiction ??), howling of wolves , blood sucking vampires, spirits out for vengeance .... visions that popular horror stories are made.
Still closer are stories of homicidal murderers and gun happy students.
But none as scary as the incident that came to light this week. A man was sentenced for killing people on full moon day. When asked why he did so , he said because he felt like it. No trace of remorse ... He killed 4 people. His 5th victim escaped. He apparently said he was born on a full moon day, and hence killed people on full moon days. Sounds like a psycho , but he seems perfectly sane.
