ON THE SUBJECT OF HALLOWEEN...

My son Paul is a finalist in a Horror Film Screenwriting Competition!

EXCERPT:

You have a Screenplay Contest for the first time this year. Tell us about that, including the finalists.

Film festivals have a natural tendency to focus on directors, and we wanted to give horror screenwriters their share of the glory. Since this was our first screenplay competition, we took it slowly and were pretty low-key about it, but we ended up with three very strong finalists: Justin Simpson’s Laura, which is a character-centered zombie tale; Philip Tatler’s Eyepole, which is a clever horror riff on ’50s sci-fi flicks; and Paul Clouse’s Voodoo Daddy, which is a fun throwback to old-school late-night horror that kind of reminds me of an EC Comics story.
