Okay so this a new addition to this blog, script reviews. I love reading unproduced horror scripts, they show originality in one way or another. I read this one a few days back but couldn’t post a review because I’m very busy until 28th May, anyways I decided to keep the script reviews short(’cause I have ADD).

Written by Henrik Holmberg.

Plot: A everyday nice guy(Seth), seems to have everything in his life, a wife he loves, the perfect job, a reliable buddy and etc etc. His life turns upside down when he replied a spam mail. The spammer seems to be desperate, so Seth’s buddy decides to mess with the spammer but it doesn’t go too well because unlike other spammers this guy seems to be pushing the envelope a little too far.

Review: The script never feels like a horror until the end, more like a psychological thriller. It was definitely a good read for me cuz time flew by when I was reading the 83 page script. The elements in it does peek into disturbing territory at times but never goes too far, keeps it simple. Yes there’s cliche dialogues but I feel like it was intentional of the writer. The ending was sorta predictable but good nonetheless, it introduced some blood to the otherwise tame script. And despite his annoying dialogue, I liked the character of Seth’s buddy(Rob). So, I’m not sure how good it’ll do as a feature film(probably pretty good) but I had a good time reading it.
