Fight that Phobia

You must write a properly formatted script between 6 and 12 pages, not including the title page.

The scripts are due on Friday, October  20 at 11:59PM Baker Island Time (the last place that it is October 20th in the world) and must be submitted to: SimplyScripts.com/OWC.

Theme:  Fight that Phobia
Genre:  Drama, Thriller, Horror

PARAMETERS:

Concept - A character must possess and fight some kind of phobia. And, your last line of dialogue should contain "Rest in Peace". It could be a part of a longer line i.e. it may read "Rest in Peace, you son of a b****" or be anything else, it just needs to contain this particular expression. Any kind of line/lines containing Rest in Peace will do. Abbreviation will do as well. See the list of possible phobias here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_phobias and here: http://www.fearof.net

Budget: Open
Timeline:  Friday October 20 at 11:59PM Baker Island Time scripts are due.

Free to submit.  One entry per person.

There will be a review page emailed to you for you to score the scripts you read.  Please only give scores to scripts that you have read. You should not review your own script.

This isn't a contest - it's a challenge.  There are no official prizes.

You can revise your script as many times as you wish up until the deadline.

Do not put your real name on your script, this is an anonymous challenge.  However, please use your real name when submitting your script.  After the challenge closes you can either have your script removed or resubmit your script with your name on it.

Participants are strongly encouraged to read and comment/review the other scripts submitted.

Please put (c)2017 on your title page.

Best of luck and I hope everyone enjoys this challenge.

Very interesting! The last line of dialogue requirement will get old after reading a lot of entries, but it's a neat twist. I can't wait to see all the different interpretations!

Since someone's going to ask anyway, real-life existing structures and creations...so, no sci-fi horror or virtual reality thrillers? Still existing or ever existed?

Yes.  because midnight GMT is 4:00 am Baku, Azerbaijan time...  So, discussion board members have a two hour head start on everyone else.

That was a mistake on my part.  It has been removed.  Budget is open.  Yes, Sci-fi horror and virtual reality thrillers, etc.

It's 2am here in Azerbaijan. I can't trust myself anytime later than that))

Good luck to all, hope you enjoy the challenge!

And, I'm ready for your questions. Hope you come up with something good for me. Something that will make me think and later possibly hate you. And make me want to fight you. Physically.
Please.

It can be part of a longer line.  If someone ends with just "Rest In Peace" I'm pretty sure the writer will get savaged (unless they do something pretty cool in the preceding line).  I may modify it to should contain... rather than read.

This was a parameter I had in my last OWC, and I thought it was a great idea, yet many didn't abide by it.

What it means, quite simply is that you can't go "creating" inventions and the like that don't already exist.  Basically, it keeps things real.

The last line of dialogue requirement is somewhat limiting. Most stories are going to end with the antagonist dying. Or, worse, there will be tack-on endings just to incorporate it. Or, the cheesy route, with the phobia being the thing that rests in peace.

I'm not religious and am naturally averse to helping spread deceit. What does RIP even mean, exactly? Rest in peace because you're dead and are buried 6 ft underground inside a coffin? They believe we go to heaven when we die... well, how long does it take to get there? Is there a queue at the gate? When does the resting in peace come into it? They seem confused. Not that that should be surprising to anybody sane.

Can't we just have fun with the phobia thing?

Understood and somewhat agreed.

My suggestion would be that the "Rest in peace..." line come into play at some point in the script, not necessarily the end.  At the end, it really does funnel the scripts into something of the same.

What y'all think?

Love the phobia theme. Really not a fan of the "rest in peace", it's so cheesy.
