I like the spike in horror movies that the monster or villain usually falls on in the final scene. The Fun House by Tobe Hooper is one example. It’s final. Some wounds and shots you know the character might get out of and continue their rampage. Not so the spike. When they fall on the spike, they are stuck and usually dead.

Spikes can’t kill zombies but they immobilize them. When one is spiked, one is jacked up for sure. You could could probably hold a blogathon for moview reviews based on the word spike there are so many. It seems to kill so well, it would probably be a wise weapon of choice in an apocalypse.

Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt. Not sure how to participate? Here are the steps to get started.
