Toaster! by Steve Garry | Script Revolution

Toaster!

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.

Based On: 
Yes, it is based on my own experience, as a young man, of painting an old toaster!
Synopsis/Details: 

Tagline 1: Burning toast was never this scary!
Tagline 2: You won’t look at stuff in a flea market the same way again!

Recycling, reusing and recovering, not to mention the satisfaction of finding a great deal: All noble objectives of modern Man.

But what curses might you inherit when you adopt other people’s old used items?

Yes, audiences were amazed by “Mask”. No one will forget the terror of “The Ring”. And theater-goers are still scarred by the relentless dread of “Christine”.

But never have you experienced the grief of “Toaster!”

C’mon, no bread-burner can be that bad, can it?

Well, in the end, this is a story about Mankind simply not knowing when to give up. It reminds us of the cliché that repetition defines insanity - even if our attempts to solve an unsolvable mystery approach the Einstein-ian in complexity and originality.

“I mean, it’s just a darned toaster, Mabel!”

The Writer: Steve Garry

I'm an incorporated businessperson, operating as Integer Entertainment, who's actively pursuing attachments for my smaller scale projects before I work my way up. While the status of my scripts here may read 'For Sale', I'm just as likely to be seeking producers/talent/investors to collaborate with, as a co-producer or EP, wherein I'd be bringing my screenplay as well as package elements and perhaps some funding to the table. In addition, with a decade of pitching behind me and being read hundreds of times, I may have connections to enhance the resources that you have available. Don't hesitate to approach me with this in mind. Flexibility, creativity and unconventional collaborations are... Go to bio
