FERAL (horror) - Probably the best angry bigfoot script you'll ever read! Fast, furious, exciting and bloody! Written originally in 1978 (eek!) then rewritten radically in the late 90's and marketed to varying degrees of success. During it's two year option in LaLaLand, it had the...honor...of being rewritten into a rip roaring redneck comedy with aliens, by the writer of Lifetime TV's Butterbox Babies! Thus endeth the option Of course that is not the version posted here. But this one is a fun action/horror tale.
THECLEAN UP CREW (horror) Action! Horror! Comedy! Loads o' action! This was the script that prompted a Trigger Street review to say " the writer paints with action much as Thomas Kinkade paints with light", so then I had to go find out who Thomas Kinkade is. Guess it's a compliment.
THE MOUNTAIN KING (thriller) a modern day noir thriller. Violence, action, sex, double crosses, stun guns, hammers slammed into knees, catfights, what the heck else do ya need? I'd jokingly referred to it as "Lorenzo Lamas in Chinatown"...when it struck me that ain't a bad idea
COLD CHILL ( horror) a chilling ghost story, or a ghost story you can read as you chill. Either way, just read it. My first professional sale, currently in perpetual preproduction. The current production draft has very little in common with this one posted. Readers here say : " I don't like ghost stories that make me feel". Oops. Yes, I do go for some touchy-feely in this one, but also throw in rotting bodies, faces getting ripped apart, and a few 'lil Lovecraft references. When my first draft was completed, the co-producer said " Oh hell not Lovecraft references, I hate that, it's so cheesy, I HATE scripts that try to put in all that crappy stuff". Shortly thereafter they added a scene to their draft of a dude's head getting knocked off by a basketball. Go figure.
THE DARK WALKER (horror) another Lovecraft tinged horror entry. A neat little script orignally written on commission for an indie producer. It was shopped around but never sold. Two years later, hey I spot a cheapo direct to DVD feature called...you guessed it...Dark Walker. P*ssed off, in the end there's little I can do so I change subsequent drafts to The Skin Walker. Then here comes a low budget horror movie last year called...say it with me...Skinwalkers. Dayyy-Em!!!! So I've changed the title BACK to the original.
CHARNEL HOUSE ( horror) Written as an exercise for me, after a few years of not writing, trying to get back in the swing of things. Mythological horror, based on Native American Indian myths, a bit of Lovecraft, etc. Written very very fast. Think it reads pretty decent, but then again aside from me, has only gotten one read, but I'm paitent.
TRICKS ( horror -short feature) - my first short. It does seem shorts are the way to get noticed here and I may have done a disservice to myself by going the features route, so this is my first short script in maybe 20 years.
13 feature scripts, 2 short subjects. One sale, 4 options. Nothing filmed. Damn.
Currently rewriting another writer's SciFi script for an indie producer in L.A.
