The Twilight Zone Challenge

Take an idea from any Twilight Zone (or new Twilight Zone) episode and write your own story. Take the idea only. DO NOT rewriting the episode, but turn it into a new story.

This was inspired by Matias Caruso's reworking of a TZ episode The Purple Testament which evolved into the script Numbers.

List of twilight Zone episodes and Twilight Zone (2019)
Script Length: Write a 6 page or less properly formatted script.
Genre: Horror, Thriller, Drama, Dramedy, Dark Comedy, Sci-Fi, Crime (basically any genre found in any episode of "The Twilight Zone".

Writers' Choice Due: October 30 at midnight edt.

Budget: Low

Nitty Gritty:

Do not put your real name on your script; this is an anonymous challenge. However, please use your real name when submitting your script.

My life is literally the twilight zone right now, and not just because of COVID...which my daughter has right now. Looking forward to this distraction!

Thanks for asking, Libby. She's been up and down. Looks like she's on the upswing now. 5 days of high fever and just very sick. Poor kid. 6 people at her work got it and it had to shut down. Shes a bartender and for the last 4 weeks since they reopened it's been very busy. Lots of tourists. The downtown has been packed and now locals are getting sick.

Anyway...great challenge! Thanks Don!!

OK, Don, we all know I always jest about the idiotic questions that follow an OWC, but hopefully this isn't idiotic.

This is the annual Halloween OWC, right?  How can we have an annual Halloween OWC, with out there being some horror...even horror-lite?

Just saying, my Brother...


To ski or not to ski...that's not even a question.

Inadvertent omission on my part. Thanks for the catch. The horror has been restored.tm

Depends on how I feel. I might step out.

Oddly enough, one of my feature scripts two main inspirations were from a Hammer horror film and my favorite Twilight Zone episode.  if I do this OWC, as I most likely will revisit that Twilight Zone episode.
