The October, 2010 One Week Challenge genre was Horror. The theme was It was a dark and story night. The limitations were: two male and one female actor, male actor is in a wheelchair, all events must occur sometime between October 30th to November 1st, can’t use the word Halloween, everything occurs in and around an abandoned, rundown house and the writer could do anything to the house, except burn it down.

One script was selected to be audio performed by the fine folks over at iScript.com. That selected script is Glass Rain by Julio Weigend (reaper creeper).

Fifty original scripts and the aftermath of the One Week Challenge - post author Don

The One Week Challenge has come to a close. It hasn’t been without controversy. Some folks had a difficult time with the theme of a dramatic conversation between a vegan and a carnivore.

All the scripts are up with the author’s names revealed.

I’ve finally gotten the backlog of non-OWC scripts up on the Unproduced Scripts page.

Among the fifty scripts is Shawn’s dramatic thriller, Chernobyl.

On April twenty six, nineteen eighty six, Chernobyl reactor four exposed its molten deadly core into the atmosphere which forever altered humanity as the worst accident on earth. But was it an accident?

If that is not your bag, there are another forty-nine to choose from on the Unproduced Scripts page.

Old Ninety-Nine Face by Cameron Mitchell - post author 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.
