In visual media, when someone's hair turns white or grey when faced with overwhelming terror, it signifies the potency of the experience taking years off one's life. It's largely constrained to the realm of fiction, but it sure makes for a striking profile, doesn't it? A powerful symbol of horror that affects the very state of the character's mind. A few examples that come to mind are Keanu Reeves in
Bram Stoker's Dracula
(1992), Heather Langenkamp in
A Nightmare on Elm Street
(1984), Jarred Blancard in
(1992), Dominique Dunn in
(1982), Ray Wise in
(1989), and my personal favourite, Bruce Campbell in
Evil Dead II
(1987) when he stares into the face of true darkness.
Think about some moments in stories you've seen where an unholy experience transforms a character in a way that makes it apparent to all who see them. Which did you think was the most effective?

I seem to recall it is possible for really extreme amounts of stress at once can cause hair to prematurely gray

Ah, I see! I wasn't sure if it was entirely a phenomenon in fiction, hence why I said it was
in that realm.

OUCH! This looks so painful! Poor Adrienne! I do love the detail of her hair turning more white.
I know that kid from the
has a white patch on the back of his head for that exact reason.

Wow! I never actually noticed that one before!
20th Jun 2020, 2:39 PM
Wow poor Adrienne just can't catch a break can she
20th Jun 2020, 7:54 PM
Yeah, I don't expect she'll be leaving Barkham's facilities a good rating on Yelp...provided she survives that long.

I hope Adrienne’s ears are burning from the flattery she’s getting elsewhere, so that fire could destroy the Lovecraftian plant monster

Wow, the sudden cut-back to a peaceful walk...
