    I'll start:

    1. A group of people in the woods find themselves at the home of a cannibal and must fight to survive.
    2. Anything having to do with the Shroud of Turin or Jesus' DNA being cloned.
    Are specs with stories about Jesus' DNA really that common?? I never even thought of that one!
    My first crack at a logline usually makes a great synopsis!

      I am curious as to what that site is. I would like to know my "score". No, my female character does not have a guy's name.

      But I'll use a cliche' in an instant if I think it works. Or better yet, if someone pays me. In fact, regarding your signature ("I want my two....million dollars!!!")... I'm going to tell them I'll do it for one and a half.
