Synopsis/Details: 

College freshman Cassie is trying to be initiated into a small sorority group consisting of sophomores Lauren and Victoria. Residing in a house that was previously owned by a disappeared family, the girls order Cassie to straighten up the place so they can throw their "pledge party." While going through the basement, she discovers a vintage video-board game known as "Scanfright." Curious, she convinces the two to break out the old televideo unit and try the game out.

"Scanfright" takes players into the 9 Circles of Hell where they must collect all nine rings to defeat "The Reaper," a host on the videotape that gives instructions and sets the game clock. He will not make things easy as he lets out "The Unholy Ghost" to mess with players. To the girls' horror, this supernatural being really does do its job! And if they don't win the game, they will meet their fates. Now they must face their worst fears and overcome the spirit to win. Could a painful memory from Cassie's past be the key?

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
