After a serial killer leaves her for dead, a final girl comes back to hunt down the monsters that go bump in the night.
Synopsis/Details: 

Laurie Bell was a world class wrestler as a teenager until the HorseFace Killer shows up, murdering her friends and leaving her alive for an unknown reason. Descending into drugs from the morphine in the hospital, and her psychic pain, Laurie spirals out of control until she meets someone who wants to get revenge on Horseface and the rest of those who go bump in the night.

We see Laurie's descent as she stalks two killers. We meet her sponsor, who knows more than he should and wants her to turn herself in and get help. It all leads to a violent conclusion with the Big Red Killer, a religiously motivated killer in Lincoln, Nebraska.

The Writer: Scott Sawitz

Analyst 9-5, writer/director at all points before and after.

Character-centric writer who's a whiz with dialogue. I like to find people at a specific point in their life, how they got there and how they deal with the consequences of their actions.

I funded, cast, lensed and released a web series in under a calendar year. You can watch "Confessions of a Superhero" on YouTube in its entirety.
