Read Cruel (pdf format) – Horror – An axe wielding “Beast” of a man abducts a teen girl stricken mute since seeing the wrongful death of her friend. One by one, each of seven different people are killed in front of the teen girl as a means of shock therapy to cure her traumatic muteness. The seven victims are each responsible for the cover-up of the Political Official who should have gone to prison for the wrongful death.
Cruel is a silent-horror-film that is just as much a cat-and-mouse thriller. The film is purposely done silent and for good reason per the intelligence of the concept. The film will end with a twist that should solidify this filmmaker’s vision and firm place into the industry. The entirety of the film will present style over substance. The filmmaker firmly believes that blood and gore scares no one, but that one can present horrors to any audience in the perfect suspensful style such that it can be disturbing and never forgotten – much as Alfred Hitchcock had done so many years before.
