Alright, horror fans. It's time to get your engines revving and to start turning those screws. The April 2019 OWC is finally here!  

Your challenge is to write a 3-12 page script. The screenplay must be properly formatted and in PDF format. The scripts are due on Friday, April 19th at 11:59 PM EST.

Theme: Vehicular Suspense

Genre: Horror

Challenge: The majority of your screenplay must heavily feature some sort of vehicle AND have at least one sequence of prolonged suspense. But that's not all. This OWC has a twist. Gore is to be kept to a minimum. Put readers on the edge of their seat with suspense, don't shock them with disturbing gore.

One script per writer, and the writers must remain anonymous until the challenge is over. Remember not to put your name on the title page. Submit your screenplay to Simplyscripts.com/owc.

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

Good luck and, most importantly, have fun.

What a surprise! So, all that about the timer was to misdirect after all.

And Jaws was set on a boat...

Bearing that in mind I presume the 'vehicle' doesn't have to be car or truck?
And not all the action, just the majority, has to take place in the vehicle?

And no gore?
Zack, are you feeling okay?  

Just kidding.
Sounds like a fine challenge.

Ooh, just noticed: One script per writer - and, some sort of vehicle.

Nope, the vehicle doesn't have to be a car or truck. Planes, boats, trains, blimps, submarines... Hell, even spaceships count. Go crazy with it.  

As for no gore... There can be some, but it shouldn't be the focus. This challenge is more about suspense. Build the dread.

Can't wait to see what you guys come up with.

This is the 3rd vehicle based horror in the last few years. Not my favourite setting for a story but I'll get one up.

I got other logs in the fire right now so I will be missing this one.

It's a shame because I had a great idea - An Orphan trapped on a stage-coach tracked by Wrylie Coyotes.

Good luck to all who enter.

I'd count a stage-coach.

You should enter, Dave. I know your not a horror guy, but surely even you love the original Jaws.   Show us what you got, Dude.

Libby and John, I'm stoked you guys dig the challenge. Can't wait to see how you guys put your own spin on this.

Warren. Sorry this bums ya out. My advice is just have fun and don't be afraid to get weird with it.  

And is this really the 3rd one with a focus on vehicles in the past few years? I only remember one from way, WAY back. Sorry for the repetition, oversight on my part. But the challenge must go on!

Jaws was great - I think your parameters are pretty cool. Just buried right now.

I might be able to pull off a quick one. I'm brainstorming ideas. I already have a title in mind.

Thanks Anthony - I better go through the list because I can already see the comments "Another car? unoriginal! boring! I'm out"

Thanks for the challenge Zack - a lot of talented horror writers around here so I can already see my entry being towards the bottom - but it's good to get out of my comfort zone

I also love your enthusiasm for hosting this challenge BTW
