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.
