Old Blood

(Horror)

Logline: A dying old man is given a second chance at life when he’s bitten by a vampire.

Synopsis: GEORGE, in his seventies, riddled with cancer, lives in a seniors community in Hammville, and asks only to live long enough to be there for his wife VERYL, also dying of cancer.

George hasn't told Veryl about his own illness, and after spending their savings on her treatment, he has to go back to work, as a greeter at Wal-Mart. George is careful to be positive in front of Jill, but wonders if things can get much worse. They can.

A series of home invasion robberies and killings in neighboring towns have residents of Hammville worried. Rightfully so. One night while George is home alone, a motorcycle gang breaks in and brutally beats George while they rip through his house. Then the bikers part to let their leader through -- a vampire named KHOREN, using the bikers to do his bidding so that he can walk in and take his prey at his leisure.

Khoren attacks George but stops, realizing the old man resembles his father who he'd killed hundreds of years before. Khoren bites George but doesn't kill the old man, believing he's too weak to survive anyway.

But George does survive. In the hospital doctors are puzzled as the old man, in a coma, gains weight, his muscle tone and skin toughness increasing so that hypodermic needles break.

George wakes up in the night to discover he is not just supernaturally strong, but blazingly fast -- and thirsty. He resists attacking other patients, but devours a blood bag before racing into the woods, where he kills a grizzly, his scream reverberating through the forest.

George returns home and ravishes Veryl, his vampire hunger extending to sexual appetites as well. A security guard bullies one of the elderly residents and George attacks the huge, young man. George is arrested. While in jail he reads the mind of a fellow inmate, a pedophile and child killer. George mesmerizes his jailers into releasing him and the pedophile, who he kills, but not before Khoren speak through the predator, promising to kill George.

Khoren kills George’s daughter. George kills several of the bikers. Veryl, her disease and her daughter's death pushing her to edge of death as well, knows George plans to go after the much stronger Khoren, and convinces her husband to make her a vampire too so she can seek vengeance against Khoren. Khoren attacks the retirement community, turning several of the residents into vampires who attack the rest of the community while Khoren watches in amusement.

George and Veryl battle the other senior vampires, then hunt down and kill Khoren and the remaining bikers in a brutal battle. Then, knowing they will become monsters like him, they declare their love for each other and walk into the sunrise.

Hi, I'm Sharun Mani, a writer from India and i have a few scripts with the genre crime/mystery thriller. I have a script for a TV series with a totally new concept.

Logline :- Story about a girl who worked for a secret service agency of USA named WCA (world crime assassins). She has been framed as a terrorist by a group of people who planned 3 bomb blasts in USA. Now, she must prove her innocence and protect USA from the 4th blast.

Synopsis :- On 24th February USA experienced a terrorist attack. A series of 3 bomb blasts within 3 minutes which killed 343 people. Jyoti (former WCA member) has been suspected as the one who planned this attack because, the planning of this attack was planned by using her social media account.
Now, she must prove her innocence and bring down the real suspects before the 4th blast and the only people whom she can trust is her colleagues from WCA.

Note :- This synopsis was for the season 1 and this story has been divided into three seasons. The suspense factor of this story increases and it's all revealed in the third season.

If Norman Bates from “Psycho” and Carol Ledoux from “Repulsion” had had a daughter, she might be a lot like Sarah Lilith: a contemporary sociopath who lures men to her suburban home and murders them. It requires a lead actress who saw “The Silence of the Lambs” and wanted to play Hannibal Lecter instead of Clarice Starling.

   Hello,

The novella listed below with book critics has just been made into a screenplay.
There is also a book trailer on You Tube.

Can be filmed 95% in one locale: a swamp, such as the Florida Everglades or in states with swamp locales such as Georgia, Mississippi or Louisiana.

Quite a poignant tale about a small boy and his beast faces horrific consequences.

David Orange


           MUTANT SPECIMEN L
         A novella by David Orange

Eternal Press/Damnation Books—March/April, 2015 release
At Eternal Press, Amazon books, etc.
Paper $[sign in to see URL]
Ebook $[sign in to see URL] Eternal Press, Amazon Books and other outlets


Motivated by her mother's premature death from cancer, Dr. Karen Stiles creates a hybrid creature using genes of a Burmese python and a prehistoric Mosasaur. She just never imagined how violent the hybrid would become.
After her son Rex helps the mutant escape, Karen will stop at nothing to recover what she hopes is the cure her mother never received—even at the risk of her own son. The emotional depth between Rex and his unlikely friend brings an unforgettable climax to this suspenseful tale.

"Star Trek and sci-fi fans should know: David Orange has come a long way from his Sleepy Klingon days of Star Trek VI, and this venture into "horror with a heart" is a spellbinder with the ignored science undertones of our times.  His fourth tale is part "Frankenstein," part "Devil in the Dark"—and all based on a real-world eco-crisis that is truly looming in Florida. Grab it before it grabs you."

           * * * *
Emily-Jane Hills Orford, award-winning author of To Be a Duke, reviewer for Prairie Journal and Writers Who Rock says:

Mutant Specimen L is a powerfully insightful novel into the possibilities of genetic manipulations and mutations. This fast-paced, action/adventure… goes beyond mere science fiction into the realm of speculative fiction, a novel that struggles with basic ethics and causes and probabilities. It is a novel that is devastatingly gruesome and downright scary.

Re: Horror/Thriller Scripts Sought For Option or Purchase


I have a horror script that could be shot on a budget with limited locations. It's a "The Fog" meets a Civil War Reenactment.

A field in Virginia is the setting for a civil war reenactment for the Union dead to come back to life to find a family treasure buried centuries ago.


"Civil War Reenactment" is the setting for a reenactment on a field that was once a small town but destroyed during the civil war. Rob decided to take pictures of the field the day before, hearing stories of the ghosts that still loomed there after reading the stories of the haunted field and woods. He was about to leave when he met Julia who seemed to know quite a lot about the history. He decided to attend the event despite his fiancés wishes and learn more about this new woman. The fog rolled in and soon people started disappearing. Rob initially thought it was revenge between two families but it was a family treasure buried in the cemetery that the Union ghosts were searching for.

TITLE: Code Day Zero
PAGES: 100
COPYRIGHT: Library of Congress WGA registered.

LOGLINE: With nuclear war approaching, the President orders USS Constitution to escape and return and inspire a post-apocalyptic world; instead Old Ironsides thwarts a nuclear holocaust.

CONDENSED SYNOPSIS: Old Ironsides and a hand-picked crew are to set sail from Boston. Also loaded with an archive of the nation's documents of democracy, they're to somehow hide in some remote stretch of the south Atlantic and wait. If there's anything left after hostilities the world's oldest continuously commissioned warship is to return and inspire post-apocalyptic survivors to re-establish a new America.

During preparations to sail the frigate's sailing master is transported to the early 19th century, into the intrigues leading to the War of 1812. In the past he realizes he must do nothing to change the future, but -- rescued by an Italian countess, a spy with her own agenda -- he is forced to. He survives battles at sea, captivity by Barbary pirates, marooning and discovers renewed patriotism, romance and -- most of all -- himself. He returns to the 21st century where the countess awaits him. She guides Old Ironsides on an even more improbable mission to sink a Chinese submarine and thwart the launch of a nuclear holocaust

SCREENPLAY AVAILABLE ON REQUEST

CODE DAY ZERO is adapted from my latest action/adventure novel, Code Day Zero: USS Constitution's Escape from Armageddon (Outskirts Press, B&N, Amazon).

Alan Ables
