I will name some scripts from the genres I have read from:

Horror:

1) The Man in the Mirror - By Jason Pitts: Let me tell you, this guy kind of made me afraid of mirrors for a while. It's enjoyable and fun to read.

2) Slaughter - By Guy Jackson: Though there are many slasher films that have been made, I just think they never get old, even though sometimes they can be a little cliché. But this one I got stuck to and couldn't stop reading. It was great and suspenseful and I'm sure a lot of people would enjoy reading it.

Short:

1) Man in the Light - By Chris Shamburger: This is this creepiest, most spine-chilling script I have read on Simply Scrips, and I definately recommend it to everyone. Trust me, it's worth the read.

2) Charlotte and the Camel's Toe - Helio J Cordeiro: Haha if you're in for a laugh, this is one you need to read. It was kind of weird some points, but it was funny and had a good twist at the end.

Umm yeah I am kinda hooked on those genre's the most...sorry people!

This is one of the better top script threads we've ever had, so I'll finally contribute. I'll see if I can hit some that haven't yet been hit.

-- The Burnout by Phil (Dogglebe) - I can't believe no one has mentioned this one. One of my favorites.

-- #747 by Curse (DonimMoe) - it needs works, but when it emerged, it wasn't bad.

-- Seventeen by Kevin Revie - This is one of those that sticks with me for some reason. It has many shortcomings, but it shows a whole lot of potential if Kevin would fix it up.

-- Quake by Guy Jackson - Sure, it's a fan fic, but it's good.

-- Season of the Devil II by Scoob - Solid follow up to the first part of Scoob's story.

I'm writing right now more than reading, but had to add my 2 cents.

Hmm.  This is a good question.  If I had to name some of the top unproduced scripts I have read, they would probably be:

Vengeance by George Willson -  Just good, fun horror with a twist.  This actually helped me write my own horror script.  The pacing is great and the story is intriguing.

House of God by James McClung - James was able to take a premise very similar to one of the worst movies ever made in my opinion and turn it into a plausible and interesting story.  Big kudos to that man.

Dead and Walking by Sean Elwood - This young man is 15 years old, ladies and gentlemen.  He has a knack for the zombie genre which can be pretty weak and predictable, but damn this script was so fun to read.  Great future ahead for him.  He also isn't too bad behind the camera.  Check out his short he made at YouTube.

Halo by Andrew ? - I ABSOLUTELY HATE THIS GAME!  But Andrew made it very interesting to read.  I don't know how he did it, but he did.  Great job, Andrew from England.

All-Mart by Robert Newcomer - Probably one of the best shorts I have ever read.  For its length, it seemed like a truly in depth story.  Rob is the man when it comes to shorts.

SimplyNoir by Robert Newcomer & George Willson - I don't think an introduction is needed for this one.  This speaks for itself.  Probably the funniest material ever dedicated to paper.  If you have been living in a cave for the past 6 months and are one of the 2 people that hasn't read this gem, READ IT.  

And there was another short written by a young lady on here but I can't remember her name or the exact title of the script.  I believe it was called "At a Wedding?", but I'm not sure.  The internal conflict she displays in that short is none short of amazing.  I can't find it in the archives anymore, so I guess she took it down, but that would be a shame.

My top three favorites here on SS are:

Misfortune by Oney Mendoza. The first 5 pages are littered with bad dialogue and after that it is fine.

Devil in D Minor. Nuff said.

and

The Hero of Her Heart. It was funny, and wierd.. good combo

My favorites are probably.

The Farm
Suicide
The Devil In D Minor

and...

I think that's pretty much it. There are probably other scripts that I'm just forgetting about.


Coming Soon:

I finally found the title for my short.

Has anyone mentioned Kill the Person Next to You yet?

Now THAT is a read.  I recommend it to everyone.  In Sci-fi.  By Breanne.

I also recommend Forefathers, not as one of the best scripts on the site, but as one of great potential.  I think that if Jake gets some more critiques on that script it could really become something.  Unfortunately I don't think it's on the site any longer but if you ask jaykur22 I'm sure he would send it to you.

Okay, first off, I want to thank everyone who has named one of my scripts. I feel soooo honored to be mentioned. Thank you for that.

I think I’ve mentioned some before but here are some that stuck in my mind in no particular order:

FEATURES

KATfight  (Action) - by Angel Orona - it has a lot of clichés in it (every cat cliché you can imagine) but it also has some really great description and is a good example of how to balance nearly novel description with condensed screenplay description. The downside is that the author doesn’t participate here.

The Swingin’ Sounds of Jack Amsterdam  (Comedy) - by Mike Shelton - gotta go with this one by Mike. I like this one a little better than Hero of Her Heart. I dig Jack’s old timey Dinoisms.

A Song in My Heart (Drama) - by Cindy L. Keller - I think this is an overlooked gem. It’s a very enjoyable read. It’s a simple and sweet little slice of Americana mixed with a little “Topper” (for those who know who Topper is) and it’s cute.

Epiphany (Sci-Fi) - by Brent Saltzman - for some reason, I’ve never forgotten this odd little script from a very smart young man. Unfortunately, this author doesn’t hang around anymore.

Open Your Mind (Thriller) - by Martin Lancaster - Strange Days vein, little mind control, little bit bloody horror, and little bit…Ewww! Can’t ask for more than the riveting scene near the end where the main character has to do…well…something no one should ever have to do.

The Farm (Horror) - by Robert Glenn Newcomer - Great description here. Simple straight forward storytelling with the story (and vernacular) to back it up. Stephen King would be proud.

The Armor of Belial (Adventure) - by George Willson - I don’t get much into this genre so I haven’t actually read a lot from it. This is one I just read and liked. A good example of story elements being brought together into a cohesive unit.

Last Charge of the Rodent Brigade (Animation) - by Mike Jones - I know animation isn’t the most popular genre and this script is for kids but it’s pretty good and with a certain sort of Kipling strand running throughout. This would be good to read to your kids a little each night at bedtime.

Starbuck Starr (series) - by Robert Newcomer - fun western Sci-Fi with good description and colorful characters.

SHORTS

As far as shorts, I’ve read so many of them I don’t even know where to begin. Here are a few that I never forgot:

The Universe Explained? - by Martin Lancaster
Old Shuck - by Martin Lancaster (fantastic description)
Cobb Hill Massacre - by Gregory J. Fine…I mean, Howard….uh…I mean….Baldwin
Salvage by Robert Newcomer
Holiday Tradition - by Mike Shelton (very touching in just 3 pages)
Miss Pearly May’s Homemade Fudge - by Andy Petrou
Garbage - by Cindy L. Keller
Simply Noir - by Robert Newcomer and George Willson (if you know the people, it’s very funny. If you don’t, it’s probably still funny)

There are so many, I know I’ve left some out. These are just a few right off the top of my head.

Thanks to Mike who mentioned my latest script Gravy People!

I haven't read many but I promise to...

I really enjoyed reading Halo by Another Writer. It was very well done and highly rich in detail.

My first post was limited to just horror.  I'm going to dip into the other genres, too:

Action:  "Fempiror Chronicles 1X04 Club Mutation" by George:  If the features are just too daunting for you, try this one on for size (found in Series, technically).  You get a nice, bite-size chunk of what this series is all about, and it may whet your appetite for more.

Adventure:  "Goonies Never Say Die" by Andy:  Andy doesn't write much, but you can just feel the love coming off this script.  Her respect for the characters and her own gleeful attitude really shine through here.  I usually despise fan-fic...and I loved this one.

Comedy:  "The Swingin' Sounds of Jack Amsterdam" by Mike:  Echoing Brea, I think this is Shelton's strongest work -- the one that would actually play best on the screen.  But who to cast?

Drama:  "Devil in D Minor" by Brea:  The strongest drama script around here right now, hands down.  So unique it's frightening -- and makes you wonder just what the hell is wrong with the person who wrote it.

Series:  "Better Days" by Wesley:  This is so amusing to me.  If you "get it", I think you will really like this, too.  It's funny and raunchy and not quite like anything else out there.

Short:  "Dreams in Dust and Marble" by Phil:  Conceived as a "Nightmare Before Christmas" kind of thing, this piece is also startlingly unique with a generous dallop of pitch-black humor.  Phil's strongest work for my money.  It's old (and better) title was "Tocsin".

Thriller:  "The Basement" by Andrew:  I don't think anyone has given this a shout-out yet.  It needs one.  It may lean a bit heavy on the recent "torture craze" for some tastes, but with George in tow, Andrew has crafted a pretty solid story here.

SciFi:  "Kill the Person Next to You" by Brea:  OK, so this is the only SciFi I can recall having read -- doesn't mean it ain't good.  You just aren't wasting your time with Brea's stuff, you know?  And it has a kick-ass title that would make a great poster.

Western:  "The Great Brain Robbery" by Martin:  An oft-overlooked gem of a SimplyScripts-derived story.  One of the better ones.  And I get my head chopped off.

My "too read" list is very long -- new stuff from Greg and James and Balt on the way, and I still have yet to read my first Guy Jackson script -- (what's that guy all about?) -- so I'll probably be returning to this board from time to time with new favorites.

Looking forward to that, actually.

I read a one today by one of the newer members, James Schlicker.
It's titled "Comanche Carl".

It's in the Action section, and I highly recommend it.
