Congrats Paul! Cold Blood was my top pick, a well deserved win.
And congrats to the runners up, all good entries. I had The Vampire Affair and Sickening Desires as among my top picks as well, the other two a little lower down.
I also had Can't You Hear It and For The Love Of Satan high up on my list, though I'm not surprised they didn't do as well. I think they're excellent scripts that could be tremendous with a little more work.

Warren, you cometh and then goeth. What was up with that?
I wasn't going to take part, but then it seemed like there were only going to be a few entries to read so I wrote something on the day of submission. When the scripts were released and there were 20 I just couldn't commit to reading over 200 pages so I asked Don to pull it.
A mixture of having a bit on my plate at the moment and pure laziness :p
I did read a couple, one of them being Paul's and knowing his writing, the best one came out on top.
I might submit it a bit later, but no one missed out on anything spectacular. It was below average at best.
Congrats Paul, and everyone that entered. I had a lot of fun writing this one and Iím glad I placed (first time). There were a ton of awesome scripts and canít wait to see you guys in the next one. Happy Halloween!
