Welcome to The Simply Scripts After Dark, Erotic Thrillers One Week Challenge.

Yes folks, SS is bringing back the Erotic Thriller genre and who knows this might be the start of its comeback in popularity.

So, without further ado...

Genre - Erotic Thriller
Theme - Seduction (think sex & danger, femme fatale, revenge, adultery, double-cross, entrapment, blackmail etc.
Page Count - 1-10 pages
Budget, Low. Contained locations with minimal cast are preferable as they are more easy to produce and attractive to Short filmmakers.
Submit your script to SimplyScripts.com/OWC

The No-No's
No Pisstakes
No pornographic depictions (we trust you'll know the difference).
Suggestion is often more potent than explicitness.

Feel free to utilise elements in the thriller component to incorporate Crime, Neo noir, Mystery etc.

"The erotic thriller participates in several genres and film styles at once, taking narrative and stylistic elements from each. Its greatest debt is undoubtedly to the 1940s and '50s film noir..." https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erotic_thriller

Go stylish and classy, with dialogue that sings with wit and banter. Think cinematically - obviously, with regard to your visuals, characters, and scenarios. And create intelligent narratives - more in the vein of engrossing storylines like Basic Instinct & Fatal Attraction, Body Heat and Sea of Love, and less in the vein of schlocky Sliver & Body of Proof

Some links for your perusal, and to inspire:

**This production is brought to you from the mind of Sean Chipman) Ė eat your heart out M. Night Shyamalan. If it werenít for behind the scenes discussions you all might have had to endure another rendition of the Valentineís Day challenge from yours truly. Thank you, Sean.

*** Pia unwittingly inspired Sean, I think...

Aaa this is something.

And I knew I knew - as soon as you said erotic thriller I knew it was a guy, that guy. Ugh ah. Sean

Oh, there are links too. Well, if I don't write I'll certainly read. I mean who won't.

Sliver is schlocky?

Haha.
Don's rules on the no porn.

This is the opposite of your Hallmark fare, Steve. You know how to keep it clean.

Yes, Sean has a lot to answer for, but Pia and I thought great idea, something different, and a dying genre.

Sliver, Yep, imho. Compared to some other greats it doesn't cut it.
Hope you're in, Kham!

Agreed. If you ever seen one or more of those mid tolate 90sDTV/cable fare ('Skinemax")
then you know those our to five minute soft core kink fests must have had only two lines of description at least. Hedonism writes itself.



By the way, some of those titles in those links suck. Cruel Intentions? Wild Things? Body Of Evidence? yeeech.
List they praise DePalma and gave a shout out to John Dahl's Last Seduction. And Kasdan's Body Heat.

No, I haven't, but...
Clearly you can tell your trash from treasure.
So write a goodie, Darren.

Let's not forget the Thriller emphasis. Well, depends where you place the emphasis I suppose, but you know what I mean. It has to be both.

Stevie, Ha de ha. It most definitely does not come under the banner of Erotic.

I should have remembered the sequel...

Kham, anything you like.
I actually liked 9 1/2 weeks - quoted Joe Cocker's song You Can Leave Your Hat On on the teaser thread. But you might need to add some Thriller to the raunch, if you're going that way.

Everyone likes different movies. Schlocky is often in the eye of the beholder.
