I was coming home late from work and had to take the last train out of the underground. I was waiting at the stop and couldn’t help but notice how empty it was. I was the only one there. It was unsettlingly quiet. And of course there was a flickering light. It made the whole situation more eerie. A flickering light adds tension and a sense of foreboding. That’s why you see flickering lights in practically every horror movie ever made. There’s a never-ending battle between light and darkness and that’s what flickering is. Well, it’s either supernatural or a sign that you need to change the light bulb. I suppose it depends on how you look at the world.
