The Dramatic/Noir-ish Submersion (107 pages – PDF format), by Jared is the highlighted script this week of the group of Unproduced Scripts posted online. When a college student sees his ex-lover’s boyfriend with another girl, he suspects him of infidelity. As he investigates, he is haunted by his past, failed relationship and slowly spirals out of control before succumbing to his darkest demons. Technically, the script is spot on – formatting, spelling and puncutation are all nailed, so there are no hiccups there. It starts slow and the build is long, though there is a payoff. There is a lot of use of voice overs and dream-type sequences which periodically left me confused where in time and place I was. I was left slightly confused at the end. Did he or didn’t he. You tell me. Not your bag? There are another 19 original scripts over on the Unproduced Scripts page.
We have a couple of new movie reviews up on the Reviews Page. I introduce Dr. “Doc” McPhearson who reviews for us, Rob Zombie’s Halloween. Doc’s review begins with “Trick or Suck!” (which we kinda all knew going into it), but this review really tells us why it sucked. I, for one, am looking forward to this coming out on DVD. I’m looking forward to a compare and contrast night between the two films like I did with The Ring.
