Last Stop is excellent also, as you can tell from the votes. I actually liked the Morley one, though the ghost was a little untypical in behavior at the end. I think you would like that one, Mark. Revenant had some strong parts too. These are just to name a few that don't get much attention. Lonely Tenant had the most clever foreshadowing and would be easy to film, if you have a suitable location. If you have time, check some of those out. Maybe start with Morley, it deserves some love. Pretty well crafted, IMO.

All right.  I'm going to put my vote in after work tonight and after I read 'Open House with an Empty Heart'.  Are there any others I should check out before I miss the voting deadline that might challenge my top 3?

As of right now, my top 3 are 'Veil of Blood', 'Open Casket', and 'The Executioner'.  (They may or may not be my favorites in any particular order.)


Mark, if you're talking about the Writer's Choice votes, I believe the deadline was yesterday.

I felt this was a good one over all. Lots of people entered and I have to thank Don for having this site up! I dont want to ever take it for granted for sure.

Im a working man and my money is tight, looking at other sites you usually have to pay to even get your work read, and thats a maybe. So thanks to Don! :]

Some day I'll figure out how to write a complicated story that's easy to follow and is NOT filled with exposition!

Actually, I probably won't.

Just finished a feature a minute ago! Feels good. Will post it down the road.

No, Ryan.  Don said my scripts are so bad and boring, he doesn't even consider me a writer, so I didn't get to put in my writer's vote, just the readers.  :-)  Actually, I spent that week working and reading and brushing up an older script for querying around next month.  I listed those 3 because I haven't made a decision yet as to which one I'm voting for, but it's between those ones.

Last Stop I actually read already.  I liked it, but not as much as some others seemed to have.  I should have time to read the Morley one and Revenant Stand, too, before I tackle some of my own stuff tonight.

In all honesty, as far as writing goes, I think that The Last Stop takes it. The question as always is" "What type of writing do you speak of, Dear Critique Artist?"

In this particular challenge I'm speaking strictly based upon the "Writing Execution".

That means, that with my judgement, in this particular challenge, the writer has surpassed his necessary qualifications.

My ultimate votes are as follows:

***The Open Casket

--Completely fulfilled the gothic criteria and entertained us throughout.

--The Last Stop

Strayed from gothic form, but ultimately laid a strong platform that cannot be denied due to the consistent effort.

Sandra  :)

In other words: The Last Stop kills this challenge because of top notch skill.

The Open Casket: Fit the criteria in every respect and I think should win this challenge because they set out to do everything the challenge demanded of them and completed it all to the last.

Sandra

Heh, same here.
At the same time, all dialouge is or should be exposition anyway, I suppose it's how you make it come across smoothly and without notice is what counts.
Lots of good scripts in this entry, lots of entries, fun stuff and it was great to read but felt I needed to rush through them and only gave them straight forward thoughts. I felt bad that I could only spend a little time with each one but I guess thats part and parcel of the OWC.

Well done everyone, and also to the regulars who reviewed without need, that was pretty cool.

The Last Stop is probably my stand out, but I did enjoy a couple of the others. Allured was a very entertaining fun read. Our Lady Of Eternal Suffering,  which I thought at first was written by Baltis, is still a high ranker for me.

BTW - not that I did it (seriously, I didn't) - but I'm hoping no-one's voting for their own?

Mark, I'm with you on this one.  Just felt that it didn't hit the gothic mark, and the plot meandered a bit, once the action started.  

Best wishes to the writer though - they've obviously got a hit on their hands.  And it's still a decent story; with clean writing and some interesting characters...

(I'll sit in the corner now, shake my "Forever Thine" banner...)

I decided to go with 'The Executioner'.  I didn't exactly like where the story went, but I really enjoyed the ride more than any of the other stories.  And for some reason, the writing felt really clean to me, too.

'Forever Thine', eh?  I don't know why, I just couldn't get into that one.  I even had to go back now just to check and see which one it was, because I couldn't remember a single thing about it, though I know I read it.

I'm not voting for mine and to be honest, I'm glad no one else is. I didn't cast a vote at all because I have been so busy with work I am not able to read and comment on as many of the submissions as I would like. And no one knows who I am and they won't be able to guess which script is mine, so....

We will see you at the reveal.

And a big congrats on all the people who submitted and a thanks to the ones who did have the time to read them all.

John

For me, it come down to Last Stop and Open Casket. Casket was finely executed, Stop had some real originality to it.

Was Last Stop Gothic enough? It's a fair question. I think you have the damsel in distress, which is a big part of Gothic; and you have a 19th century feel to things, if I remember correctly, which evokes connection to the past. But it's definitely borderline as to whether this is Gothic.

On the longer list, I had 2 recommends and I think maybe 8 considers. I bunch of scripts that I gave a pass to could easily be brought up to consider with a rewrite.

Some scripts I just had trouble with the premise, and no matter how well written, those are passes for me. You can't polish a premise.
