-Don

Candyman – August 1991 ‘corrected’ draft script by Bernard Rose (based on Clive Barker’s The Forbidden) – hosted by: Horrorlair – in pdf format

Helen Lyle is a student who decides to write a thesis about local legends and myths. She visits a part of the town, where she learns about the legend of the Candyman, a one-armed man who appears when you say his name five times, in front of a mirror. Of course, Helen doesn’t believe all this stuff, but the people of the area are really afraid. When she ignores their warnings and begins her investigation in the places that he is rumored to appear, a series of horrible murders begins. Could the legend be true?

The Devil’s Toy – Bonus Feature Length Script (Available for Production) - posted by wonkavite

Imagine… A hideous evil, hidden in the most innocent of places – a simple, unassuming children’s jack-in-the-box. Mix in a generous dose of Lovecraft, and a backstory that involves Nazis, the Dark Occult and an abandoned concentration camp…

Voila. You’ve got the Devil’s Toy. Penned by writer Chris Keaton, this worthy horror short has already found a home. Produced by Sprocketboy Films, the script’s won several awards. (Check out the full short film here!)

…and now it’s spawned a full-length script. While not an official pick (yet) for the STS feature of the month, the Devil’s Toy is a note-worthy horror that shouldn’t be missed. Especially near Halloween:

An old man lies dying. Before he passes away, he calls his estranged son, John, to his side. You see, he’s got a few souvenirs from the war upstairs. Ones that must be kept locked away.

Needless to say, things don’t turn out quite so easy. Before John can carry out his father’s wishes, his two sons open the box. Releasing a terror that can’t be contained.

Directors and producers take note: if you’re a fan of Lovecraft, and looking for your next project – Devil’s Toy has a lot of treasures locked away, ripe for the taking. A reasonable budget. Spectacular gore. And a premise that begs to be explored…

About the writer: Chris Keaton is an Air Force veteran living with his family in sunny Arizona. He’s primarily a screenwriter, but he does love diving into prose. He has had several short screenplays produced and go on to win awards. He’s optioned a few features screenplays and currently has a thriller feature in pre-production. A young-adult novel based on one of his screenplays is soon to be released. You can see some of his projects on his website, (www.Chris-Keaton.com) or follow him on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Chris-Keaton/456096811068609).

Pages: 86

Budget: Within the reach of an indie budget. Some wild effects – but nothing that can’t be done with blood, and a touch of animatronics/stop motion.
