DELICIOUS (Short) – Hiking in the dark after his car breaks down on a rural mountain highway, a food critic known for bankrupting restaurants with his blistering reviews, stumbles upon Delicious – a ghost town with a mysterious 24-hour diner that claims its fresh-ground breakfast sausage is to die for.

      Well, it's not technically late, because it was submitted at 10:25 pm PST. I jumped the gun a bit.

          Either that’s a good batch or I just have no idea how to judge horror. They all sound like movies!

            I went on vacation and spaced entering this one. The entries are great and I'll be voting tonight.

            Will be really hard to pick my favorites, because they all sound good on a first read.
