Synopsis/Details: 

Nicole Atkin AKA 'EggOnFace' is an atheist YouTuber who tends to make content where she disproves urban legends in a rather arrogant fashion. This approach naturally nets her a sizeable following to the point of putting her livelihood on the ad revenue she gains. For her next project, she fulfills a commenter's request to tackle the folklore surrounding the creepy "Statue of Death" where the eyes of its hooded figure will give an unsuspecting visitor a vision of their own death if they stare into it. As she is a native of Chicago where the statue is located, Nicole decides to film a vlog of her encounter with the statue and sure enough, she stares into the statue's eyes with the help of her camera's monitor expecting to debunk the myth instantly.

However, when she takes a pit stop on the way back, she unwillingly finds herself in an accident involving a gasoline explosion that causes the entire station to collapse. Nicole is unable to escape and gets killed by a falling sign... except that it was all just a vision. When she realizes this, she intentionally skips the gas station but hears on the radio that the same disaster she predicted had occurred. Unnerved by this predicament, she decides to check the footage of the statue she shot and sure enough, she witnesses another scenario where she dies: this time getting shot in the head accidentally by a random pedestrian. With the camera still in hand, she ends up recording the moment where she literally dodges a bullet.

These chains of events put Nicole into a personal conflict: she has to come to the realization that the statue's legend is true as she's already recording footage where the deaths supposedly happen to her. On the other hand, she doesn't want to turn into the very supernatural nut she had been mocking for a while and intends to edit the video as if she never had this bizarre experience. This proves to be more trouble than it's worth as continued encounters with the statue's footage lead to more death visions, further questioning her beliefs.

As if that wasn't bad enough, Nicole starts witnessing her Internet friends getting picked off by mysterious killers, a couple of them even getting involved in her death visions. Now she needs to get to the bottom of this conspiracy and swallow her own pride before she is killed off for real.

The Writer: Craig E. Zecko

I have been self-taught to be a professional screenwriter (although I did take a couple of classes along the way) and I have what it takes to deliver projects that are both unlike anything audiences have seen before and can easily go behind the camera. Because of my eclectic tastes in films and TV, I am able to work with a wide range of genres. In addition to being a devoted writer and hard worker, I am easy to work with and can take criticism. No matter how difficult the industry may be, the last thing I want to do is give up. Go to bio
