OK, I think I've read them all.


The usual mixed bag, or perhaps more than the usual, mixed bag. The short time frame and the fusion genre seems to have resulted in writers struggling for consistency of tone and story.

I enjoyed reading them, though.

I'm all done too

I'm most impressed with what some people can come up with within a short space of time and some tough stipulations - well done
A couple... not so impressed lol

I did get a bit horror fatigued if i am honest, so sorry if I was a bit harsh in reveiwing some.
I would have quite liked it if the below split of genre options had been a bit more evenly spread

Horror-Comedy - 11
Horror-Action - 1
Horror-Sci-Fi - 4
Action-Comedy - 1
Action-Sci-Fi - 0
Sci-Fi-Comedy - 3

Sad there were no Sci Fi Action scripts...there could have been stealth ninjas in bio-tech camouflage breaking into a psychiatrists office to steal an incriminating file, or cybernetic warriors being treated for PTSD after a Galactic War.

What good are choices if they're all bad?

My second favorite idea, when I pulled these topics, was actually a sci-fi action script. It wasn't an intergalactic war, but it was a war in the future where soldiers were trained to see the enemy as a bobblehead doll. But, that feeling didn't stop once he went back to the real world and it actually got worse, psychologically.

All the best ideas come after you've submitted.

For whatever it's worth, I apologize for the continued discussion I had on one of the scripts. I actually give strong consideration toward adjusting a score if someone defends the script successfully. Sometimes a story that doesn't quite work for me can rise in estimation once I have things defended or better explained. It's certainly not rare that I miss something during a read that throws me off. And if a lot of people really like a story, I will go back and give it another chance. Seems only fair to the writer.

You may want to read my review of that script before you go adjusting scores...

Oh, I don't want to give the impression that I'll adjust a score based on its popularity. What happens is that I will go back and read a script to see if I missed key elements that effected my score. I'm not a very good script reader. I do miss things. I remember once I read a script here where I missed that the main character was black, and it changed the whole point of the story.

When it comes to the script in question it seems you and I agreed on several of the problems.

I just want to be as fair as I can to the writers.

Finished reading them all. That was quite the mixed bag.

The hardest part was definitely the fusion element. I know I struggled with it in my own script so I sympathized on that part.


An utterly mediocre writer who somehow still falls bass ackwards into getting some of his scripts produced.

Once again, I am very surprised to see the reviews mine is getting.  Shocked, actually.

I'm also very surprised to see reviews that others are getting, both negative and positive.

Some of these are so bad, yet are receiving pretty solid praise, while others are quite good and getting shat on.

Maybe I'm not playing in the right sandbox.

Yup. Good exercise, though. I'm not sure I can last 5 weeks of this, however. Time consuming. Next round might be shorter comments, maybe even just grading some.
