Re: Producer Seeks To Buy A psychological Thriller


BLACK APPLE (feature film, drama/horror)
Logline: A man plagued by inner demons is contacted by an old friend, a medical scientist who wrongly claims to have discovered God.

'Black Apple' is a dark and unnerving character based drama, it deals with the fear of death and what it is to die, in a horrific but beautifully haunting way. The film is set in the 1950's and centres around an isolated country house, in the remote Highlands of Scotland. The house is led by a slowly maddening doctor who is worshipped by his devoted followers who (all women) treat and think of him as a God, with fatal and frightening results.

I'm working with a reputable Belgian production company, however one of the agreements made with this company is that my literary partner and I will seek the rest of the funding needed (est. 40%) from UK/US production companies.

We have been working on perfecting our screenplay, 'Black Apple', for a number of years. The screenplay was edited by best selling author Milly Johnson.

Best regards

Genre – Dark Thriller
Rating - R
Page count - 120

Logline:
A new law allowing convicted child murderers to be executed and resuscitated according to the number of crimes they committed, forces an alleged killer to use what little time he has while legally dead, to gather clues in the afterlife, and prove his innocence before his time runs out.

Synopsis/Details:
In the not so distant future, a law is passed aptly named equal retribution. A law that literally takes an eye for an eye to the next level when it allows for people who are convicted of heinous crimes against children to be executed and resuscitated according to the numbers of crimes they committed. Derek Sanders is one such lowlife who was convicted of the rape and murder of three young girls.

Derricks to be sent to the death gurney and resuscitated three times for these crimes.

Clive Washington is a small town detective who investigates Derek Sanders and ultimately is responsible for sending Derek to the death chamber. Then the day comes when Derek is sent to his first of three executions. While dead on the gurney, Derek visits an afterlife where he witnesses firsthand the atrocities perpetrated against the little girls by the actual killer. When brought back to life, Derek tries to relay this information to Clive but to no avail.

As the executions progress, Derek continues to gather clues in the afterlife and attempts to prove his innocence by talking to anyone who will listen as to the possible identity of the true murderer. However, Derek has a date with destiny and a third trip to the execution chamber. By now, Clive is convinced of Derrick's innocence and races against time to try to prove his innocence.

However, as Derek takes his third and final trip to the afterlife, it seems that sometimes even paying with your life isn't enough. Sometimes, it requires coming back to set things right.

Excerpt by Carson Reeves - This reminded me a lot of Prisoners. And I think it may even be better than that script.

Genre: Psychological Fiction (Mystery / Suspense(

Log line

For the first, time in his life a police Lt. Faces "world of Absolute Evil"

This menacing story revolves around a cast of characters who exude depravity, sadism, Intriguing and hatred.

Synopsis

Set in :Westchester County, New York State, this menacing story revolves around a

cast of characters who exude depravity, sadism,Intriguing and hatred. And, to make matters worse, the unwitting victims of this adult egotism are innocent children whose only wrongdoing is that they are there.

Lieutenant Michael Holmes,a detective specializing in unsolved crimes,is investigating the case of missing child... seven year-old Isaac Menis!after a while the police found his corpse…he was murdered!!!

The investigation is complex and increasing pressure is put on the detectives to find suspects. The first candidate is identified : Joshua Solomon-the mysterious leader of a religious cult whose relationship with children raises cause for concern. However, Lt. Holmes’deputy, Wally, is not convinced that Solomon is guilty, at least not of the Isaac case.

As the investigation unravels we learn of the utter disfunctionality of Isaac’s family - his divorced mother and father and their respective new partners. But of all these rather unpleasant figures, it is his father Abraham who surpasses them all in the bitter and twisted stakes. It would be hard to imagine a character as full of resentment, anger and misogyny as this bit-part actor and model.

Another character in this hate-fuelled bunch who could have reason to want Isaac’s disappearance to remain permanent is the partner of Isaac’s mother, Gideon, a gynecologist, who sees the child as an interfering obstacle to his efforts to control and manipulates Isaac's mother?

Although we are told that this is a ‘Delving into the Darkness’, paradoxically there are some clues that allow us to understand (but not necessarily like) even the most distasteful characters in this book: Abraham was severely abused by his mother as a child, and Joshua, despite his abnormal behavior, seems to be a genuinely caring although person. Nevertheless, an ominous air pervades this book, re-enforced by sinister misinterpretations of the Old Testament and Nietzsche. No one is beyond suspicion.

Eventually a trial is held and Solomon finds himself in the dock. The trial is complex, but despite his best efforts, Solomon’sattorney’s defense is demolished at each turning. It is only at the end of the trial that the terrifying truth is exposed.

The story is told in a series of fast moving scenes that heighten the tension and carry the reader along to reach a cliff-hanging conclusion. World of Absolute Evil is a novel that is gripping in its vivid portrayal of a society peopled by repulsive, self-seeking and, ultimately, psychotic characters. It is a book to be recommended to all fans of suspense thrillers.

Lucid State:

Pitch: Dream therapy treatment, or deadly mind manipulation?

Logline: When two investigators vet a potential Nobel Prize - winning psychiatrist, they uncover a history of sinister practices and determine to stop the doctor before he turns his evil on them.

Synopsis: “Lucid State” is psychological thriller that will take the audience on a trip through the windows of the mind and into the realm of the unconscious brain, where life and death are determined by the ability to distinguish between reality and delusion.
This story follows three main characters: Dr. Bartholomew Kratz, a renowned pioneer in his newly developed field of Lucid State Telepathic Therapy, described as “direct, noninvasive neurological contact with the patient’s unconscious mind to access, evaluate, and treat mental illness naturally.” Dr. Kratz ‘s contributions to the field of psychology and his newly gained world-wide notoriety culminate in publishing a national best-selling book, resulting in his being considered as a leading prospect to receive the coveted Nobel Peace Prize.
The second major character is Heather Wilder, the Nobel committee member investigating Dr. Kratz to determine his legitimacy to receive the award. Her parents, disappointed that she did not follow in their footsteps to become a doctor herself, warn her that Dr. Kratz has a very sinister side evidenced by her investigation into the doctor’s dark past. Her parents also introduce Heather to a police detective, Nicholas Cook, who previously investigated Kratz on bizarre accusations of experimental brain manipulation resulting in the complete loss of brain functioning and worse! Unfortunately for Detective Cook, the trail of evidence goes cold quickly, and Dr. Kratz is exonerated while Detective Cook is humiliated and forced to apologize to Dr. Kratz.
Dr. Kratz invites Heather to visit the Kratz Institute and witness first-hand his mental illness treatment techniques by inviting her into the dreams of some of his patients, where Dr. Kratz manipulates their minds to expose the origins of their disorders. Then, through a series of mental prompts, Dr. Kratz empowers his patients to destroy the source of mental anguish and restore psychological peace and well-being.
The plot thickens as Nick and Heather delve into the mysterious younger days of Dr. Kratz’s career as a telepathic mind reader, working his way through medical school by performing in a Las Vegas variety show. Their investigation intensifies and so does the romance that quickly develops between the two. This leaves them vulnerable to retaliation from Kratz and his thugs, who leave behind a trail of dead bodies and catatonic patients in the wake of Kratz’s emerging shady practices.
The story climaxes when the investigation leads to Silver Springs Hospital, an acute care mental facility overseen by Dr. Kratz. This is where Kratz makes his final stand to destroy the investigation and anyone who tries to stop his ego-maniacal God complex.
