Exclamation Halloween 2017 contest

The merry month of October is upon us! Fun alert!*

Unearth your undead, rattle your skeletons, shake your spooky, and scribble a short script by the 31st, 8 pages maximum.

That's not to say you're restricted to horror themes... if you prefer romcoms, ninjas and explosions (or indeed, romcoms with ninjas and explosions) then go for it.

Wave if you're interested!

Added: export your screenplay as PDF, or if you don't have this option, text will do.
Email to dpaterson57 at gmail.com
I always acknowledge receipt, if you don't receive an acknowledgement, PM me or say so here.

* Emphasis on fun, this is a for-fun/writing practice contest.

If you're new to this, take a peek at previous contests to get a feel for things:

2016 Halloween contest entries
2015 Halloween contest entries + Also-rans, that didn't make the contest
2014 Halloween contest entries
2013 Halloween contest entries
2012 Halloween contest entries
2011 Halloween contest entries
2010 Halloween contest entries

There were previous contests also, you'll find them if you go further into the archives.

For posterity, the entries thread is here and the results thread is here.

Glad to have y'all aboard.

It's kinda weird when I look at last year's entries and realize a full year has passed since I wrote 'em, seems like just yesterday, they're still fresh in my mind.

omg, getting older.

I think I've got this contest won. My writing is horrific at best.
