Third Likely Story

Neil Gaiman tells us that the role of the writer is to get people to trust them, and then lead them astray.

This has a similar set up to a small arc in Sandman, in which people are in a bar and talking stories. Ghost stories in this case. The main character tells of a time when he was a kid and met some other kids, and then they disappeared... and that, by and large, is it. There's definitely supernatural elements present, but more of "there were supernatural elements present" than actually show them.

The main character is Johnny Vegas, and he gives a decent performance, having to turn from comedy with the lads to going into spookiness for the tale telling. Otherwise...

Again, these are just feeling too short. Just one left.
