Alex Van Helsing: Vampire Rising by Jason Henderson - posted by Don

Jason Henderson, author of The Sword of Dracula, (you can read a script excerpt here) has a new series – Alex Van Helsing. The first in the series, Alex Van Helsing: Vampire Rising by Jason Henderson, comes out today from HarperCollins.

Fourteen-year-old Alex has no idea that he’s descended from the world’s most famous vampire hunter, but that changes fast when he arrives at Glenarvon Academy and confronts two vampires in his first three days.

Turns out Glenarvon isn’t the only school near Lake Geneva. Hidden deep underground lies an ancient university for vampires called the Scholomance. And the deadly vampire clan lord known as Icemaker? You might say he’s a visiting professor.

When two of Alex’s friends are kidnapped by Icemaker, it’s up to Alex to infiltrate the Scholomance and get them back – alive. Assisted by the Polidorium, a top-secret vampire-hunting organization with buried ties to the Van Helsings, Alex dodges zombies, bullets, and lots – and lots – of fangs on his way to thwarting Icemaker’s plans and fulfilling his family destiny.

Hunting Humans - posted by Don

This ‘just’ in from Kevin of Kangas Kahn Films.

Hey, recently noticed you linked to my script for Fear of Clowns –very cool! Thought you might like the link to my first produced screenplay, “Hunting Humans”, from MTI Home Video…

[S]ome serial killer was caught with a copy [of Hunting Humans] in his dvd player like a year ago, which is flattering yet creepy…Dateline and
Nightline (page 3) both featured the flick in their stories.

Hunting Humans – 1999 unspecified draft script by Kevin Kangas – hosted by: Kangas Kahn Films – in html format

Meet Aric Blue. He’s young. He’s handsome. He’s successful. He’s also a serial killer. He picks his victims at random, stalking them and taking advantage of the patterns in their life to kill them. He’s the ultimate serial killer. But when he finds his next victim already dead, a note on the body reading: “I’VE GOT YOUR PATTERN”, Aric realizes he’s being stalked by a serial killer every bit his equal. When two serial killers wage war, the rules are simple: Don’t Get In The Way.

Old Ninety-Nine Face by Cameron Mitchell - posted by Don

http://www.adhocpipe.comThe October One Week Challenge selected script is Old Ninety-nine Face by Cameron Mitchell (cam17)
Read by: iScript.com

The October One Week Challenge genre was Family Horror (in other words, a horror movie you could watch as a family). The theme, as selected by my nine-year-old son, was “At the Halloween festival, strange things happened”. Participants had one week to write a 12 page script on the genre and theme. We had 29 scripts which were read and discussed over on the discussion board. One script was selected to be audio performed by the fine folks over at iScript.com. That selected script is Old Ninty-nine Face by Cameron Mitchell .

Evan, new to the neighborhood, hears the legend of Old Ninety-nine Face, a hermit whose ghost supposedly haunts a nearby house. As the story goes, steal something from the house on Halloween night, and the ghost of Old Ninety-nine Face will come for you. Evan doesn’t believe it, but he soon will.

You can read along with the pdf version of the script. You can discuss this script and all the OWC entries here. Click the “Play” button to listen to the script.
