Frederic Brown was a master of short SF and Horror. That's always been one of my favorites. Then again, it's an easy one to remember. :)
 
FALSE:
The knock was from the last woman on earth.
 
TRUE: Horror Would Be Meaningless Life Is Or Creator's Great Dramatic Comedy We Must Direct Before We Act. Takes Two To Tango.@WWalkerWW Thanks Linda For The #FFunny And Monika For Comedic RelieF. Now double ROF LOL
 
She Was.!@? Brent It Was Omega Lady Ga Ga
 
what if he had split personality? hmmm...
 
also, how can he be so sure he is the last man on Earth????? Did he travel around the globe to make sure there is no one else left?
 
relax it was the last woman on earth knocking. And now the movie changes from horror to youknowwhat
 
The man clearly went insane. After the knock he received some spam mail asking if he wished a bigger d...
 
.. and Kramer entered and said, "What do you have in the fridge?"
 
um... Horror.

Yeah, creepy, but does it have to be something knocking on the door. How about a branch being blown by the wind?

 
last man on earth, hmmm...... could have been a man from space. yes ALIENS
Dev Sen
 
ha ha ha ha ha, love that story
 
A woman?! Man... that's too lazy, its a rabid donkey trained to knock by nomadic monks.
 
must be the tax collectors coming for not filing returns of income and other taxes
 
It was all a dream. In his own head. As the last knuckle made its final rap, he realized that all matter is merely energy condensed d to a very slow vibration. That we are all one consciousness, experiencing itself subjectively. There's no such thing as death, life is only a dream and we are the imagination of ourselves.
 
He woke up in bed with Newt Gingrich.
 
And the plot twist will be a woman on the door. Since he's the last man on Earth, they'll need to repopulate and find a way to grow weed again. #justsayin
 
yes that wil be a woman

Knock Knock !!! who's there ???,.................chuck norris ...............ah ok
 
Was it the sense that he was not alone anymore or that he didn't know what or who was knocking, that makes it a horror story?
 
... i'm scared now...
 
For some reason I was reminded of the movie Moon...
 
Hahahaha ...
How could you be there naseema ... :p
 
It would be even shorter as.
The last man sat in the room. There was a knock.
 
If you think about it, it's really scary
 
if it's the last knock
 
Makes me laugh every time
 
+Zack Dibe Yup. It is. Was thinking about it since i read it. It has interesting psychological effect - either your imagination runs wilds in chase for whatever may be behind the door, or you try to guess feelings and reaction of hypothetical 'last man'. Glimpse of hope, sheer terror, disbelief ? All of those at once ? We'll never know.. But considering reactions i've seen in comments, most people just laugh at that one. Not that there is anything wrong with that. It just kinda damages the 'think about creepiness (I hope that's how it's spelled) of described situation' effect. Nevertheless, funny and interesting. ^^
 
Doesn't matter anyway, if he is the last man on earth, nobody is reading the story and/or watching the inevitable screenplay ;-) 
 
Dun Dun Dunnnnnn!!
Translate
 
This is scarier than most of the horror movies I've seen lately. lol
 
I know a shorter one: "Justin Bieber".. There you go, sleep tight...
 
'honey, what are you doing inside?'
 
Lol!!! It could also be the beginning of a love story... who know's he may have been so lonely that he would welcome any creature to interact with! hee hee!
 
Definitely Twilight Zone material.
 
Maybe the knock was from a survivor - jeez. It does not all have to be horror. Think how happy he should be not being alone anymore.
 
it should have been the last human on Earth
 
Here comes Johnny! ..lol that's all I could think of when I read that line.
 
hahaha....lollllzzzzzzz...!!!
 
That's not a horror story. This one is:

Dave woke up to find his wife gone, on the table, she left a note.

Hon, didn't wanna wake you. Let's have dinner later.

PS I took the credit card.

Lovelots...
 
...and in came his mother, shouting: "Why are you sitting in your room on such a nice day?! Go out and play!"

But jokes aside, it IS a good horror story.
 
Sure, it could be a woman, like so many pointed out, but also consider the option that "man" here refers to human being, or living thing. 
 
Not really. Its the most romantic story. That was the last woman knocking.
 
I like this one too - "You're walking at home and chance upon your bathroom mirrors, they're covered with fingerprints - you get a cleaner and that liquid soap and after scrubbing for fifteen minutes, you realise - that the fingerprints are on the other side."
 
OH, perhaps it's the last women on earth, he hopes! Humanity and I are saved, he prays as he rushes to opens the door and finds....his ex-mother-in-law! Nooooooooo!
 
his wife....whu got survived fr him...badluck....
 
That's more like a love story or something.
I think being the last man on Earth is quite horrific as it is. A knock would just be a relieve, no?

cheeseie pie in my tummy

kiggle shmigge diggle
 
This is kind of scary as well, funny too. Ha haa!!!!
 
+Monika MHz You figured that out pretty damn fast.

If I was the last man on Earth I would hope that the last woman of Earth was as sharp as you are.
 
Funny But Creepy At The Same Time.......
 
Its Micheal Jackson's white glove. ooooOOOOooooo
 
Weird but I like It its really good!!!
 
The new shortest horror story: The last man on Earth sat alone in a room. The phone rang.
 
This is how to write a horror story:
Knock Knock "Its Justin Beiber"..... SCREAM
 
That is not the shortest the shortest is there was a scream
 
"It's the plumber, I've come to fix the sink."
 
it isn't horror, its a comedy!! :D
 
read a similar story when i was a kid a man jumped out a top floor window just as his phone rang peace out
 
Reminds me of Hemingway's Tragedy in Six Words: "For Sale: Baby clothes. Never used."
 
short and to the point... let's your imagination run wild... excellent
 
Makes me think of things reaching out from the ether
 
it was obviously me. you cant kill nathan.
 
actually the shortest horror story is:
FINALS WEEK
 
And that man was...Dr. Who of course, Knock Knock, Who's there!
 
If it was Jesus, that would be awesome! :) Let's go home! lol
 
Guys, perhaps this is a biblical reference of the post-apocalyptic judgment of our lord. This guy missed the boat, and there is only one being left to claim him.
 
If it was the Lord (Jesus), then it wouldn't be a horror story necessarily. But the Devil?~ it doesn't get any worse than this.
 
It was just a sycotic cat who was trained to knock on doors by space aliens named Bob that were invented by evil computers that humans built because they evolved from monkeys that were invented by the aliens named Bob because they could time travel.
 
lol ha ha its the shortest story i have ever seen
 
The man opens the door.
There was a last woman on Earth.
They fell in love.......
Here starts "The Longest Horror Story"
 
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh breath breath breath breath breath breath ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
 
Monkeys can do such basic actions as knocking on the door too. Sorry for spoiling the story.
 
By then we would have colonies on the moon. Other than that, we will have robots who are smart enough to knock. It was probably his robot butler asking him if he wanted to watch a movie
 
SOPA and PIPA have been --------to the congress and senate respectively!!!! .....the most horror of them all
 
"I want you to make me feel like I'm the only girl in the world/ Like I'm the only one that you'll ever love/ Like I'm the only one who knows your heart/ Only girl in the world"

Only to find............out it was a dog

...Or it could be the last woman. (que scary violins)
 
AVON calling!! Think i would rather be alone
 
That is a very short story :)

The shortest horror story would be:

The last man on Earth heard a knock on the door...

Jo Go
