Another entry to the #ranirattcontest
The inspiration for this one is a little interesting.
I used to have a few nightmares when I was a kid (cliché, I know) and one of the ones, that I remember, was where my family members turned into creatures like this. I had this nightmare a few times, which is why I remember it so well. It freaked me out so much and took a while to get over but eventually I did and the nightmares stopped.
I think me dealing with dreams like this is why I'm not so easily spooked by horror films anymore because there's nothing that can be as scary as something created by your own brain.
