David is alone in a darkened house. He's despondent and listless. The world doesn't interest him anymore. The sun doesn't seem to be present outside, but it isn't night either. He receives an unwanted call from Terry who wants to see him, wants to thank him. David doesn't want his thanks.

It's night outside. David shuffles around his house. The phone rings again and it's Terry. He wants to come over, visit David. He just wants to thank him, everyone does. He asks about David's boys, surely they want a visitor? David stares glumly at a bedroom door, scratching is heard from behind it. David doesn't want his thanks and hangs up.

David is on a couch, staring out a window. His phone rings, and this time it's Alicia. Emotion grips him as he answers the phone. Alicia's voice fill him with grief, but also joy. We finally see the world outside through the window and it's covered in a swirling blue mist. David nearly snaps as Alicia talks about their boys, and how she can't wait to see them. A charred and slime coated hand presses against the window. Alicia says that all they want to do is thank him. David puts his up to it and finally gives in.

David hangs up the phone and opens the front door, the mist outside seems almost alive. Purple eyes glow from within the mist as David prepares to enter it. He takes off his shirt and reveals demonic symbols burnt into his body. Excited whispers fill the air and escalate to excited hollering as David forces himself to step outside. The hollers turn to insane screams as David disappears.

This script would be ideal for a one location, one actor shoot. Two other voice actors are required simply for phone calls, but that's it. Minimal effects would be required as well. I'm happy to offer the script for free to the right person with my permission of course. If you are interested, please feel free to message me directly.

The Writer: Matthew Corry

I am a writer who prides himself on creating original horror stories that avoid standard tropes and cliches. It is my goal to create stories that not only leave a stroke of fear through the viewer but also to create strong realistic characters to ensure the horror and tragedy is not simply visual. I write mainly low budget horror features as from a business point of view I want to mimic certain production companies proven systems of producing low cost/high profit films, however, I do like the dark side of comedy and have written other scripts outside of my preferred medium. I have also written a pilot for a highly original supernatural/drama series. All of my work is for sale, however to... Go to bio
