Title: MERCY

Logline: Based on the popular children's game of the same name, four strangers are haunted by an unknown entity, known simply as "the Monster", who terrorizes their minds, as well as their sanity, using the same tactics of the game.

Brief Summary:

Four strangers, with no connection to each other, are methodically sought out by a mysterious entity, known as the "Monster", who has carefully chosen its victims, determined to punish and bring suffering to the evildoers, as well as those it considers "unrighteous", by involuntarily and unconsciously exposing them to a demented and psychological game of "Mercy". The "Monster" inflicts its damage using the very tactics of the game. With the only escape from the psychological torture being the desperate plea for "mercy", those victims consciously aware of the mind game will discover that it's easier said than done. Fate has methodically kept them apart, but "mercy" will strangely enough, draw them closer together.

Genre: Suspense, Mystery, Psychological Thriller, Psychological Horror

Target Audience: Men/Women; 18+

Anticipated Rating: (R)

THE WAITER. Based in North Carolina.

I live in NC and would be happy to sell the script as well as be more involved if the producer would like. Locations are a camp site, multiple rooms inside homes and a restaurant.

Most characters are late teen/early 20's; however, one of the main characters is an older detective. Could be changed if that's a problem.

THE WAITER

After getting screwed over too many times, a waiter starts to take revenge on his bad tippers and rude customers.

Dear Sirs,

I once read about a granny serial killer, which inspired me to write my screenplay "Granny Killer". The news headline was :""GRANNY RIPPER" OLD-LADY SERIAL KILLER ACCUSED OF BEHEADING AND DISMEMBERING AT LEAST 10 PEOPLE."

Logline:
A female serial killer uses a highly trained ROTTWEILER vicious dog to terrify her victims then butcher them. After a series of successful crimes based on fear and psychotic games, who stands up for her is a heavily armed 10 year old kid.

Synopsis:
We start out with the huge blood thirsty teeth of a wild Rot Veiler Beast, crushing a man's neck. Later on, revealed, to be trained by an old granny who uses it to butcher her targets.

This granny, in her prime, she was hurt by the law enforcement, the rich and powerful, and the religious.

This turned her to pornography and living in the underworld, where she learned a lot about crime and created enough ties with criminals to live up to her vengeance dream. By the time she became skillful enough to kill those people who had hurt her in the past, those people were dead or gone and she couldn't locate them. As this made her wounds grow deeper, she became more determined to make at least the likes of those who hurt her in the past, pay in the bloodiest way possible. She turns into a serial killer. She targets people with certain qualities; money, power, religious position, law force, and happy young people, who have what she never had.

She reaches her fervor, by giving her victim a false sense of survival, right before putting a bloody end to his life. Sometimes, she likes to have an audience of the police force, to witness her wrath. Therefore, after torturing a priest, she leaves him alone in a church, letting him believe that he finally escaped her grip. Then she manages, to blow him into pieces before the eyes of the cops who have arrived to aid him at his sanctuary.

She strikes every five years because she spends, half a decade, of planning and training a beast, before she starts a new massive killing round. A trained dog or a wolf is all the family she has. She makes up for the physical strength that she lacks, by using a highly trained dog beast to overcome her victims.

At her final round of mass murder she makes a mistake, an unplanned road kill which forces her to change her route and stay at some stranger's house. A 45 year old gentle-man, living with his 10 year old son, outside the city in a decent house. That's where an unexpected challenge erupts; a former human trafficker and his son VS the granny serial killer and her vicious dog.

That former human trafficker and his son won't be typical victims, they will fight back. The trafficker will get killed and the 10 year old will be left alone to defend himself against the granny killer and her beast dog. However, the boy has a surprise for them; a gasoline and tar FLAME THROWER, his father kept in the basement. But will it be enough???

Re: Looking For Horror/Thriller Scripts To Be Shot In North Carolina


BrotherBrother(Registered with WGAEast) - Synopsis

Screenplay by Kathleen Gerritson

Genre: horror/thriller

Sibling rivalry runs amok in this collision course extraordinaire when Corinne an ambitious female and her quirky brother Andrew with pet monkey in tow battle over inheritance of the family estate and entitlements. Contestable holdings including lucrative lithium mines, come into play at the family compound known as Phillips Manor.

When the contents and more importantly the conditions of the will of their departed mother are revealed, all hell breaks loose. A harsh and conniving Corinne is determined to stop at nothing for exclusive rights but more determined perhaps to cover up an ugly truth from the family’s past. She goes so far as to corrupt an associate from the firm representing the family estate while continuing to harass and demean her hapless brother. Andrew, on the other hand methodically maps out his counter attack with a little help from his friends - estate staff and a squirrel monkey. Andrew is a technophile with a score to settle. All is revealed in due course.

Gothic Phillips Manor is the perfect backdrop when the showdown comes in the form of an elaborate costume ball and the instrument of revenge is a gypsy fortune telling booth crafted by
BrotherBrother.

If this has piqued your interest – please advise. Thank you.

Kathleen Gerritson

Re: Looking For Horror/Thriller Scripts To Be Shot In North Carolina


An AFI award-winning writer-director, my feature "Stomping Ground" premiered at the Philadelphia Independent Film Festival last year. Since 2006, I have written or doctored nearly 50 screenplays for features, shorts and docs. Besides my own feature, I have two other produced features and two produced documentaries to my credit.

I am a longtime student/fan/practitioner/teacher of low-budget independent filmmaking so I strive to write screenplays for productions that are economically feasible.

I have some horror screenplays that could take place in NC:

"Bait & Tackle" is familiar take on the kids-in-the-woods horror scenario. While it initially appears that they are being stalked by backwoods yahoos, the truth is revealed to be something even more insidious and not at all is expected in this type of film.

"A House In The Hills" - College students travel to the country home of their professor for a weekend getaway -- just as a former member of their group escapes from a nearby mental institution -- and bodies soon begin to drop.

Sludge, set in 1987, is an affectionate send-up of that era in monster movie form as high school friends re-unite during a summer vacation from college at the lakeside cabin of a recently deceased friend only to find that they are not alone.

Warner's, Disney vet writing team's horror


Dear Producer,
I’m a produced horror screenwriter whose last horror comedy feature film was THE COUNTING HOUSE, featuring Maggie Q (DIVERGENT).

You might wish to read SIMON SAYS DIE, a horror script set in a small North Carolina town, which I co-wrote with Dennis Edwards, producer of OSMOSIS JONES for Warner’s and a fixture at Disney for many years.

After reading the logline and synopsis, kindly let me know if you wish to see the script. If so, please provided your name, bio and credits.
Cheers,
Richard A Lasser
310 990 5941

Logline:
SIMON, a bullied teen, unwittingly creates, and then gets trapped in, a deadly video game called “Simon Says”.

Synopsis:
Simon loves three things - mountain bikes, video games, and Claire. The shy, fatherless, twelve year-old is bullied and treated as an outcast until he unwittingly creates a deadly computer game he calls Simon Says. Simon’s cyber-alter ego takes control of the rural North Carolina town of Carson Peak. Cut off from the outside world and living in fear, the residents are forced to grant his every wish: a new mountain bike, flashy games, and game consoles. Simon relishes his new status and gains a confidence he has always lacked. But his hopes of impressing Claire are dashed when she betrays him. The afflicted town unites and rises in anger. Simon’s mother tries desperately to stop the lynch mob. She calls upon a group of teen-hackers to end the high-tech reign of terror and save her son.
