Scary Stories for a Summer Beach Party

Partiers around a campfire listen to four tales that range from the ghoulishly slapstick to the disturbingly agoraphobic to the shamelessly macabre, and lastly to one of thought-provoking but inspiring redemption.

Synopsis/Details: 

It’s Summertime, a crackling campfire at night, and a multigenerational beach party! Kids aged seven to seventy-seven crowd around hoping to be entertained, spooked, enthralled or all of the above.

"First up, a story that won’t traumatize the kids but should still entertain the adults."

1. Toaster! (Rated G) Even if it is hard to pass up a good deal, surely nobody means for the toaster-from-hell to be handed down from victim-to-victim in an endless curse.

"Okay, now the kids go to bed and we grown-ups get some fun!"

2. Corridor: (PG) A recluse observes increasingly disturbing activities in her apartment corridor through the peephole in her door, till finally she ventures out for a closer look.

"Uh, a bit too weird for me. How about some blood ‘n guts next?"

3. Find Me at the Roadside: (PG-13) Two brutal thieves on the run with a female teenage hostage come upon a wreck at the side of the road, with a dead man at the wheel who mysteriously rejuvenates with each valuable that they plunder from the car.

"Cool! That was stupid. No it wasn’t! Was. Granny and Gramps are still awake; how about something for them?"

4. The Girl: (PG) An aging executive with little zeal left for life responds to a disturbing dream by preparing for an appointment with destiny that he believes his vision predicts.

The Writer: Steve Garry

I wrote my first screenplay in 2008, at the age of 52. It was a surprise, yet predicable too, for composition was my favorite subject in my earliest years of elementary school. But somewhere between the ages of 10 and 52, I must have felt that writing wasn't a serious or possibly an attainable career. My writing methodology is unique because I use many of the same skills I used for decades as a software programmer. The stories must be both "logical" and "bug free". Oh, and hopefully, thought-provoking, entertaining, suspenseful, or humorous, often in the same script, with captivating characters and story lines, especially given the complex themes I often take on in my work. From satire to... Go to bio
