The Greater Good explores how people’s lives have been affected by the arrival of The Unseen One, an actual God that has declared itself the one and only.

Five years ago the Unseen One, announced His presence to the world and declared Himself the one and only savior of mankind. The Unseen One performed many miracles to prove His power. Disease and sickness across the world were cured and wiped out, wars were brought to a grinding halt and for a short while, world peace was achieved.

The Unseen soon declared that to follow Him was the one true path and ruled that all existing religions were forbidden and anyone caught practicing them or worshipping the “Old Ones” would face His wrath. An almost instant uprising formed that brought together Muslims, Christians, Jews and people of many other faiths that called the Unseen One a false idol and an abomination. They called on the world to shun him and in doing so, angered a God.

At 11.04am E.S.T. on a clear Sunday morning the cities of Rome, Varanasi and Jerusalem were obliterated from existence by the Unseen One. The world quickly succumbed to His law but many still struggle in this new world even though war, famine and sickness have completely disappeared and religions have been reduced to a fading memory. This “utopia” however, comes with certain sacrifices that many say they are willing to make but are reluctant to pay, even when it's for the greater good.

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. Go to bio
