NOT!!!!  Terrible idea.

You can't have a bunch of 1 page last minute entries along side 12 pagers that took time to conceive and write.

C'mon, man!

Personally, I think it would be hard as Hell to build suspense in a one-page script, but I know there are better writers here than me... so I'm okay with someone trying.

1-page scripts used to be my favorite to write. If you wanted to, you could get a hell of a lot of story out in that one page.

I'd agree with Jeff - If there was no minimum page count then you would have to have a low maximum to keep the entries from being too disparate  - 1-2 pagers could be a OWC all on its own.

Although saying that, with the sheer volume of entries in the last one, I wish some of them were 1 pagers

Just 'cos you haven't got the skills to condense a story - doesn't mean they should be banned. Better chance of production with a good micro-script. And my only previous entry to this challenge won. It was 2 pages. And beat many other longer scripts - including yours

Your fourth hint.







Jaws 2 isn't a great movie, but this scene traumatized me when I was like seven and it has always stuck with me. No oceans for this guy.

I haven't seen that particular Friday the 13th Part MMDCLXI, but the teens didn't do anything obviously stupid there. Granted, they're teens in a horror movie, so I'm sure they did SOMETHING stupid, just not seeing it in that clip.

The kid picking up the hitchhiker, now that was stupid. He basically said so while doing it.

Uma Thurman's character (that is her, right?) is not too bright if you ask me, so not necessarily only the domain of teenagers.

Quoted from Anon
Not up to me but can I suggest no minimum page count? My heart always sinks when I havenít got time and hey - if you can write a story in 1-page itís a good skill to practice!


I like this with modification.  Past OWCs have included "stretch pages" - i.e., the story was effectively told in five page - than stretched to meet the requirement. I would be a fan of something like:

No less than 3 pages - not more than 12

Damn, guess I better stop writing for good, huh?  No skills, and and "beaten" by not only a 2 page script, but yours.  I guess I'm all done.

They're all about building anticipation. Things the audience can see coming even if the characters can't.

Beyond that...I guess we'll see soon enough.

Have to agree here. The Strangers is one of my all-time favs, this sequel was an embarrassment to the original and should never have happened.

So no goats are involved?

What about Snakes on a Plane?  Would that be getting close?

I feel like I watched a different version of The Strangers 2 than everyone else. Seriously don't understand the hate it receives. The pool scene alone makes it a must watch.

It's not a better film than the original, but I'd argue it's more entertaining. It probably doesn't hurt that it was filmed in my town.

Anticipation is the right word. Suspense is when the audience is in the dark. We either see what's coming, feel it, or are stuck in it and don't know the outcome. But we're in the know the whole time.

True, the outcome is not known, so suspense does work. So does anticipation, since these scenes all set up an expectation.

How about dread? So much dread in those...

I'd say this hews closer to anticipation (the audience has a good notion of what's coming) than suspense (the audience knows "something is up" but not what to expect). In either case, you can still surprise the audience with the actual execution.

Peripheral to this dramatic irony, which is when the audience knows something the characters don't. There's no real dramatic irony in the Hitchhiker scene... the driver sees the same indicator light that we do. But there is in the Friday the 13th scene because we suspect that Jason is in the vehicle from the beginning and know for certain once the girl is grabbed, but the driver is oblivious.

"There is a distinct difference between "suspense" and "surprise," and yet many pictures continually confuse the two. I'll explain what I mean.

We are now having a very innocent little chat. Let's suppose that there is a bomb underneath this table between us. Nothing happens, and then all of a sudden, "Boom!" There is an explosion. The public is surprised, but prior to this surprise, it has seen an absolutely ordinary scene, of no special consequence. Now, let us take a suspense situation. The bomb is underneath the table and the public knows it, probably because they have seen the anarchist place it there. The public is aware the bomb is going to explode at one o'clock and there is a clock in the decor. The public can see that it is a quarter to one. In these conditions, the same innocuous conversation becomes fascinating because the public is participating in the scene. The audience is longing to warn the characters on the screen: "You shouldn't be talking about such trivial matters. There is a bomb beneath you and it is about to explode!"

In the first case we have given the public fifteen seconds of surprise at the moment of the explosion. In the second we have provided them with fifteen minutes of suspense. The conclusion is that whenever possible the public must be informed. Except when the surprise is a twist, that is, when the unexpected ending is, in itself, the highlight of the story."

- Alfred Hitchcock

I see a "lead protagonist dies early" challenge.  Possibly an ensemble cast where the standout character dies horribly.
