This might go really quick.

A man is killed. A strange face looms over him.

Is the dead man H?A?M?
Is this taking place in the "real" world? in a video game? in another creative work (such as a novel, movie, etc.)?

Is he killed by accident? Murder? Manslaughter?

Does the strange face belong to his killer? Is it a human face? Animal face? Face of some mythical being? Is it a representation of a face? Clock face? Rock face? Hieroglyphic face? Geometic face?

***** SPOILER *****

This is taken from that old 1980 arcade classic Berzerk. The dead man is the character you play who is trying to zap robots in a maze. Evil Otto is a smiley face http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/erb ... 0808134021 that bounces out if you're taking too long and kills you with one touch.
