The last three Harry Potter films.  That's actually fantasy not horror but it's the best example of young adult I can think of.

Anyone know of any good YA horror scripts to look at? I have a few ideas but am having a bit of difficulty deciding which most closely fits the parameters... or maybe I'll just give up and not even enter

It's been a long time since the Oct OWC has been Horror. And there was a huge cluster-fuck of insanity about it last year when the genre announced was "Comedy". So Horror is the best way to go.

My only problem with this is coming up with a twelve page story.

I know what you mean, Phil. I'm having a hard time condensing my idea into 12 pages. The way I'm going right now, my script would be 15 pages long at the very least.

I almost thought of not entering as I was perplexed as to what to do.

But now I've finally thought of my idea and it is a great idea.  Oh boy I'm excited.  Now I have to deliver.

The writing starts tomorrow.

Yeahhh.

I came up with a couple of ideas (not to say I'll be entering) - both of them are really good ideas but they seem like they will take longer than 13 pages to tell. We'll just have to see how it goes.

I didn't know about this until now. And I'm excited. Once I come up with an actual idea I will be even more excited!

I came up with an idea then reread the theme and topic to make sure it fit. I started thinking of the show Goosebumps that used to come on Fox. Then I remembered Are You Afraid of the Dark? that came on Nickelodeon. I used to love those shows but I don't want to water down my story so i'm going to be aiming at the 17yo audience (who are allowed to see R-rated movies btw hahahahahahahahahahaahha)

I'm having a headache trying to think of stories that fit in 13 pages.  I keep coming up with feature ideas.  I'm going to have the largest collection of features about two kids who -- you know the rest.
